Today for many, contemporary styles and modern twists are what we seek in our homes. Everybody wants clean, contemporary lines for their furniture and interior design- but this deceptively simple look can be quite difficult to master, especially by yourself. The elements that create a contemporary look include simple shapes, graphic elements, minimal pattern, and the general eradication of any fussy details.
However, there is an important line between stylish and stark, which is a fine line to tread, and even an extremely modern scheme will require an injection of warmth and soul for it to feel liveable and like your own space. At Ken Golen Design, we specialize in Warm Contemporary interior design styles featuring softened and rounded lines as opposed to the stark lines seen in modern design, and we utilize neutral elements in bold color to bring attention to the basics of line, shape, and form. We see many clients here at Ken Golen who do not want the fussiness and old-fashioned feel of traditional interiors, and are seeking the clean lines and clear impact of a more contemporary feel, but are tired of the cold and mechanical look on the other side of the scale.
Even though high-tech minimalist contemporary interiors are sometimes stunning to look at, living your everyday lives in that environment can come off cold. Most people don’t want to spend their closest family moments and lead everyday lives in an environment that doesn’t have a homey feel and may feel to them more like the inside of a hotel or office building. With this in mind, we specialize in softening the look and feel of a contemporary space while still building off of the basics of contemporary interior design- form, clean lines, a lack of unnecessary or fussy detail, contrasting colors and textures- by incorporating wonderful natural elements such as stone and reclaimed woods in order to provide our clients with a space that will look and feel like home. When you work with Ken Golen, one of the top South Florida interior designers working today, you will be designing a space that you will feel comfortable going about your everyday activities in. That’s how you know it’s a Ken Golen space!

I found Ken here on Google about a year ago. In prepping for a home renovation, I knew I would need some help and didn’t trust myself. Ken is really easy to work with and I think what I like best about Ken works especially hard to fit the needs and style of the client. We now have a home that also (for now anyway) looks like a showcase home and all of that is thanks to Ken.
We hired Ken to help us with our bedroom and asked Ken to totally take the lead. An excellent decision! We started only a week ago, and are still in the project. Ken recommended a faux design on the wall that was just completed, and all I can say is “Wow”! I’m not sure who’s the greater genius: Ken with the vision of the wall design, or the two ladies doing the painting. Perhaps both. The look is just incredible. It’s like somebody came while I wasn’t watching and did an “art thing” on my wall. Really an *amazing* job! I’m looking forward to every day seeing how the room is being transformed from just four plain walls on a tiled floor to a space that is sophisticated and sharp!
