Hi I'm Ann Myrick and today I'm going to show you how to design an contemporary living room. This is a small living room and I already have a little bit of the bones kind of starting out quasi-contemporary with the Rusirite chairs which are contemporary and a few other pieces. I'm eclectic so I really like having, if you are going to have a contemporary room maybe throwing in one or two things that may be aren't totally 100% contemporary just to kind of add a little bit of energy and add a little bit of surprise but what I'm going to do is how you how I would make this room more contemporary very quickly. Contemporary look is more very minimal. A lot of times you take, you don't have a lot of things so like in this situation I'm going to take this bowl down and I'm going to move my lamp over and I'm going to take all these little small pieces away. On this table I'm going to take the small accessories away. Now I might add to it at some point but what I'm going to do is just create a real create a straight line and create just a minimal very clean very plain look. With the coffee table is really fine if for 100% contemporary person, you just take away or add to to what your taste is. The chest would not be necessarily contemporary so you could take away or you can really just leave them just for a little added surprise, just have them just stark where you can see the wood. I would take away all the added pillows. Over here I have two frames that are more have an architectural feel to them and a tray. You could, I would probably keep this table because I really don't like tables that have the exact amount of things on each one of them. This one is very minimal. This one has a little bit more but I would keep it like that just to add to it. This is Ann Myrick and that is how to design a contemporary living room.
