If the thought that enters your head when you see sleek, no-frills, slightly Mid Century spaces is “Bring it!”, chances are your style is what Modsy calls Mod Visionary. And lucky for you, this style pairs beautifully with everything from frilly Victorian cornices to a plain white box of a room. It’s timeless – current but not trendy, retro but not old-fashion.
Create this look with a few key ingredients
Open bases – Select furniture with bases that are open underneath to make a room feel larger and airier. If you love a piece that comes fully to the ground – a closed base – surround it with open-base items.
Restrained palettes – put a limit on the colors you include, and stay close to neutrals to create a feeling of serenity.
Rich textures – to prevent neutral palettes from feeling boring, use a mix of textures – velvet, leather, linen, cotton. It keeps things interesting, but subtle.
One bold pattern – if you need to add some life to the mix, limit it to one or two places and go big and bold. Paint, rugs and artwork are no-fail ways to add a spark of drama to this style.
