History of the Modern Style of Decor
Modern and mid-century modern styles are currently very popular, so that's what's inspiring many architects and interior designers at the moment.
But what does that really mean? Let me break down the differences between modern and contemporary design even further for you.
Modernist architects chose to create homes that showed a distinct lack of ornament and flair, in contrast to what was seen in the popular home designs of the time. They designed homes that featured a strong horizontal composition with large open floor plans, intentional asymmetry, and large expanses of glass windows or glass walls. The focus here was to create a simplified home with an emphasis on function – removing unnecessary details and frills.
