There are times that contemporary and modern design is defined similarly, but the truth is there is a difference between the two words. Modern design of architecture refers to modernist- a movement that takes place in the early 20th century. While on the other hand, contemporary is the definition of the architecture happening at this very moment. Contemporary approach is defined by strong lines, smooth forms and minimal accessories. The designs usually provide an abundant open space and natural light and colors. To understand more about contemporary design, take a look unto this featured house for today.

This private residence is located in Elwood – a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. While looking at its exterior you wouldn’t say that this house outlines a fresh sense. Behind those rustic brick walls lies a very humble home that flaunts out a contemporary feel delineated with clean straight lines and fresh materials. It is then improved by the brilliant preference of colors, furnishings and with right choices of furniture, constructing a home which was perfectly designed as a family sanctuary.
