How to complete the Contemporary World of Style look

So you took the World of Style personality quiz and found yourself surrounded by a world of Contemporary preferences.

Not too far from Classic and not as bold as Designer, the Contemporary look confidently holds the middle ground between elegantly sophisticated and edge-pushing-trendy.

To achieve the Contemporary look, focus on lighting, flooring and furniture:

• Lighting  - in this theme, shiny equals contemporary when it comes to feature lighting, think gloss pendants. We like Ollie Wood/Metal Bell pendant light by Globe West

• Flooring - this where you can inject colour, add a simply geometric patterned rug to bring any room up to Contemporary standard! We like Hive Yellow rug by Bayliss

• Furniture - Chairs should be a mix of light timbers with a simple single colour and clean lines. We like Gigi Chair by Globe West and Max barstool by Coco Republic, while larger pieces, such as buffets, lounges and bedheads, should feature architectural details like the Gus Wilson Buffet by Globe West

Abstract patterns with warm tones will add depth to the Contemporary look when it comes to cushions and throws, and we like or the Ikat Cream Lounge Cushion by Bandhini
