Embracing contemporary with unique interior decorating ideas

Written by: Jane Schreier Jones

Some people dabble in contemporary, scattering occasional contemporary pieces amidst a more transitional interior. That’s how it was with a couple living in a Beavercreek Township home. But when they had a new home built in Bellbrook in 2015, a residence more than double the size of their current home, they decided to totally embrace a contemporary look with a series of unique interior decorating ideas. “My husband always favored contemporary more than I did but over the years, I’ve come to love the look,” says the mom of the family. “So when we built new, we decided to go all out.”
