Dream Home Tour: A Rustic Minimalist Retreat

Meet Rustic Minimalist design. With similar notes of rustic elements and minimalism that are found in Organic Modernism, this new style is an earthier, warmer take on the modern and organic home.

It brings more focus to Scandinavian style furniture, the beauty of unfinished wood, and rustic materials and textures. They’re then tied together through a palette of cozy neutrals—warm whites and linen, stone gray and charcoal, natural fibers and wood tones. The result is this calming, livable, and inspiring rustic minimalist home of our dreams.

From a living room that’s rooted in Nordic comfort to a bedroom that’s all about serenity, read on for our design tips and the essentials you’ll need to bring the look into your own spaces.

If you’re a fan of the Japandi look (Japanese meets Scandinavian), you’ll love how Rustic Minimalist style can immediately set a pared-down but cozy and livable tone in your entryway.

The Key Elements

Think big, think natural. Anchor your entryway with one statement piece that highlights the beauty of materials from nature, be it a smooth stone console table or a carved raw wood cabinet. These pieces will establish a quiet, rustic vibe for the rest of your home.

Mix your materials. What makes this look so warm and grounded are the different earthy materials, such as raw woods, stone, porcelain, and blown glass. Lean into a combination of these textures and natural finishes as a way to add depth and play up an earthy comfort.

Styled by minimalism. Uncluttered styling allows the organic materials and finishes to be the star of the show, and it will keep your entryway feeling airy and serene. Go for neutral but sculptural decor pieces, such as a hefty stone lamp, a uniquely shaped vase, or a driftwood showpiece.

rustic minimalist designThe Living Room

When it comes to rustic minimalist interior design elements for your living room, keep to clean lines with natural materials in light finishes, and be sure to leave lots of negative space on your walls.

The Key Elements

Seek out Scandinavian styles. Unlike other design looks, Rustic Minimalism is rooted in furniture that has a distinctly Scandinavian aesthetic. Think light wooden chairs with slender and streamlined silhouettes. Then pair them with upholstery in light grays and off whites.

Amplify textures. Because the palette is made up of mostly neutral tones, the way to instill comfort and warmth into your living room is by mixing various textures. Combine grainy wood pieces with woven poufs and caned accents. Finish off the look with a pop of earthy green velvet!

Keep things spare. Keeping your walls bare will allow your furniture and decor to shine here. Pull back on bold visual accents, such as colorful art and oversized mirrors, and instead hang a wall shelf that’s sparsely arranged with pretty vessels.

The Dining Room

In our Rustic Minimalist dream home, the dining room is the ultimate communal gathering spot. It’s a room that exudes organic elegance and simplicity, and it has an instantly soothing effect.

The Key Elements

Go for all the wood. What lends warmth to the dining room is the different natural textures and finishes. Pull in a rough-hewn rustic wood dining table, carved spindle chairs, and a woven seagrass armoire to play up intricate graining and textures, which will convey a sense of comfort and earthiness.

Blend in pattern. Minimalism doesn’t mean skipping patterns altogether. Instead, choose a design that works with the hues of your space. This rug with a large-scale geometric motif in a sandy hue complements the wood tones while anchoring the room.

Create stark contrasts. Industrial-style elements, like a black woven bench, a steel pendant, a stone side table, and a single framed monochrome photograph on the wall will help balance out the wood tones. Spread them across your room to create mini focal points that captivate.

The Home Office

This rustic workspace in our dream home reminds us that investing in a few key pieces is all you need to pull together a room that’s inviting, comfortable, and perfectly balanced.

Shop This Look

The Key Elements

Pick a rustic showpiece. In any home office design, a statement desk not only makes for a chic focal point but it can also inspire you to be more productive. Invest in a table that makes you happy to show up for work, like this weathered-wood finish desk that has an open and airy feel.

Work the white tones. Your home office needs to be functional but it should let you work with comfort and ease. Crisp white and off-white hues, like ivory, soft beige, and cream, in upholstery, ceramics, and accents will further play up a calming atmosphere.

Put minimalism on display. Take the time to style and organize your office bookcase. Layer in rustic minimal decor pieces, such as artisanal vases, woven baskets, art tomes, and paper-wrapped books, all of which will add to the overall restrained beauty of your office space.

The Bedroom

Our dream Rustic Minimalist bedroom is the exact opposite of spare and cold. It’s outfitted with a plush and cozy bed, light wooden furnishings, industrial lighting and accents, and a touch of traditional style.

Shop This Look

The Key Elements

Choose a modern bed. The trick to minimalism in the bedroom is making sure you invest in a bed that doesn’t overwhelm the space. Look for a neutral-hued bed with delicate tufting and details that add light visual texture. This way it will still pop but also recede a little into the room.

Trad it up softly. It’s easy to want to go with a light-color rug if you’re after a serene bedroom atmosphere, but there’s a way to work in pattern without breaking that calming spell. Try a washed traditional rug with a faded pattern. It will add depth without coming off as bold.

Opt for sleek lighting. Industrial wall sconces really round out our Rustic Minimalist bedroom. A pair flanking the bed adds balance, function, and sculptural appeal all at once. Carry through the streamlined lighting approach to the rest of the room with table lamps in a similar aesthetic.

Friends Reunion

Friends Reunion Special: Reimagining the Interiors of the Hit 90s Show

WHOOOOPAH! We couldn’t be more thrilled about the upcoming Friends reunion special slated to start filming later this year. Thinking about the gang being together again has gotten everyone at Modsy super excited. Like most people, we’re to know what the gang’s been up to over the last (gasp) 16 years. With this in mind, we thought it would be fun to imagine what kinds of spaces they might be living in and share them with you.

We hope that these designs provide the daily perk you’re looking for! And, if you feel like you need a refill of Friends related cheer, feel free to check out how we reimagined the Friends apartment in 2018!

Monica and Chandelier’s  “Breezy” Upstate  Haven

We imagined that Monica and Chandler’s Westchester home would be bright and airy with rustic touches of shiplap and exposed beams. True to her 20s style, Monica would still be into more traditional furniture that’s put together, comfortable, and set up to host friends. A second sofa and pair of chairs allow her to entertain a larger group of friends perhaps one with partners and children in tow. Stylistically we chose a pair of roll arm sofas in a classic blue fabric that adds color without going overboard.

The color scheme is inspired by her vintage Jouets poster, which she has proudly on display on her bookshelves. The coffee table is a nod to her original weather wood table, but it includes storage to keep everything neat and tidy with a cookbook on display. Symmetry and an overall organized feel would be key to keeping her Type A personality happy. In the background, you’ll see her chef jacket hanging and tennis racquet as we think her competitive streak for ping pong would translate well to tennis matches in her Westchester community.

Emma’s All-Grown-Up College Dorm

We imagined that Rachel and Ross’ daughter, Emma’s room would be a quintessential Gen Z space with a cool, collected vibe and pieces that remind her of her parents. Since it’s a dorm room, the base furniture would be pretty simple, but she would layer on her personality with accessories. A lover of fashion like her mom, she’d incorporate an influencer essential—a clothing rack—to display favorites from her vintage clothing collection. A pair of Joan and David boots would be key (thanks, Rachel!)

On her desk, she keeps a baby picture of her and her mom and a dinosaur stuffed animal that Ross gave her when she was little. She has a poster of a vintage Paris luggage tag, a nod to her favorite city outside of New York, a love she inherited from her mom. A lover of travel, Emma has a cork globe to track all of the places she’s been and dream of all the places she’ll visit.

Friends ReunionJoey’s “How You Doing” Bachelor Sanctuary

Joey, the quintessential bachelor is still living in Greenwich Village—in Monica’s old apartment to be exact. Sentimental as he is, he couldn’t bear to leave behind the place that formed so many of his favorite memories—after all, sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name and they’re always glad you came. He updates the look and feel with some gray paint, to make it a bit more masculine and a place of his own. His style is minimal, yet comfortable. With a gallery wall of a few of his favorite pictures, including when he was on the cover of Soap Digest, Joey pays homage to his favorite friends.

While he’s gotten rid of his favorite recliner, he’s upgraded to a sofa with a chaise so he can recline all the time or cuddle up with a new girlfriend. Pat the dog obviously still has a place in his apartment. Huggsy, Joey’s bedtime penguin pal sits on his director’s chair as 2020 Joey isn’t embarrassed anymore. Instead of a dining table, Joey has a foosball table, so he’ll still hover over the counter to eat his Cap’N Crunch.

Phoebe and Smelly Cat’s Country Retreat

Phoebe has finally made it out of the city where she can run freely in the countryside, arms flailing and all, without the judgment of Central Park joggers. Her home is a whimsical cottage and an eclectic collection of all of her favorite things. Before moving in she burned sage to ensure any negative energy was cleansed and any ghosts freed. Her bedroom is painted Basil by Sherman Williams, a calming and serene color. In the mornings she sips coffee from a big yellow mug in bed that reminds her of the days she used to spend in Central Perk with her friends.

While she has purchased a few new items, her bedroom has a vintage leather chair where she sits and writes new songs, and an antique dresser. On top of the dresser, she keeps a scented candle that she never lights for fear of setting off the fire alarm. Her bookshelves are filled with vintage books and ones from the literature course she took at the New School as well as a little stuffed cat that she calls Smelly.

Katie Stevens X Modsy: Designing the Star of “The Bold Type” Katie Stevens’ New Nashville Home

Homeowner: Katie Stevens of “The Bold Type”

Location: Nashville, TN

Room: Living Room + Bedroom

Her Style: Rustic minimalist with an eclectic twist

The Backstory

Katie Stevens stars in Freeform’s The Bold Type and lives in Nashville with her husband, Paul DiGiovanni, the guitarist for Boys Like Girls.

After getting married this past October, the couple bought their first home together. They’d lived together for several years prior to getting married, so they weren’t starting from scratch when it came to combining their lives, home, and possessions. But, for this new space, they wanted to be really intentional about the design and make sure it reflected their combined styles for this new chapter of their lives.

Katie StevensThe Design Dilemma

Katie and her hubby knew they both liked a minimalist aesthetic, free of excess objects and busy designs. They also wanted to go with a more neutral, black and white color palette so they could add pops of color here and there. But that’s where they got stuck.

They weren’t sure how to effortlessly combine masculine and feminine elements. Plus, in past homes, Katie says she had bought a lot of stuff that she didn’t end up loving, and she didn’t want that to happen again. She wanted to avoid a lot of trial and error with decorating, so the space would feel like home more quickly. So she turned to Modsy for some help.

“I know myself — I buy a bunch of things and then don’t really love any of them… I didn’t want to make that mistake with this house.”

Katie StevensKatie StevensThe Modsy Moment

With our style quiz and design services, Katie and Paul were able to drill down to their shared aesthetic and design style, then think through layout options for both their living room and bedroom—the two spaces they wanted to focus on first.

Katie StevensKatie StevensThey also asked our designers to incorporate a couple of special pieces they already owned and wanted to keep, into their designs. Specifically, their sofa and coffee table, which had both been passed down from Paul’s grandmother.

Katie StevensHow Modsy’s Designs Helped Katie

Working with Modsy allowed Katie to see how masculine and feminine style elements could be combined—and gave her and Paul design ideas for their space that they never would have thought of on their own, like layering rugs under the kitchen table for some added texture and warmth.

“It was really important to me that the home be perfect because this is the home that Paul and I are starting our life in.”

Katie StevensKatie says she loves more feminine touches but wanted to make sure those didn’t overwhelm the space. She wanted the design to feel balanced since the home belongs to her and her husband. “We’ve balanced it out through little touches, like the different textures that we have, or the rugs that we chose or the side tables being a little more edgy,” she told PEOPLE magazine. “This beautiful wood table in the corner of our breakfast nook adds a little bit more roughness and masculinity to the room, which I really love.”

Katie StevensThe Real Results

Once Katie and Paul finalized their designs, they implemented the ideas throughout their home, even adding a little breakfast nook to their open living room/kitchen. We designed both that space and their bedroom in a black-and-white color palette that spoke to their minimal, neutral aesthetic—but added some natural wood, leather, and gold touches to warm up the spaces and inject some personality. We also added plenty of pops of natural greenery to make it more approachable!

“We come home every day and we sit on the couch and I look around and there’s nothing that I would want to change.”

Katie StevensKatie StevensKatie says that they love how their space has come together and can see themselves starting a family in this home someday. In fact, there’s one design element that especially has her thinking of the future: “We have this really cute reading nook in the corner and we put a chaise lounge in there,” she explains. “My mom used to have a chaise kind of like that in one of her dressing rooms, and I just remember I used to sit on that when I was little and I would read books with my mom or I would watch her get ready. Now, I look at our little nook and wonder if I’ll be there reading to my kids, and my kids will be watching me.”

Katie StevensShe says that when she and Paul are home together in the evenings, they look around their home and feel like there’s nothing they would change. “It feels like our personalities blended together, and I think that that’s the best thing because it’s symbolic of what is actually happening in our life.”

Two Ways To Design A Coastal Living Room

Like everyone, we’ve been spending our days hunkered down and working from the comfort of our home offices (aka the living room sofa, then our beds, then our kitchen table, then back to the sofa).

With spring in full swing and temperatures getting warmer, we’re craving all the time we can get outdoors and, honestly, a real vacation. We know we’re not alone in feeling like we could use a major getaway right about now. Specifically, we’re dreaming of lazy days by the ocean and afternoons spent lounging out at a coastal-style beach house that’s filled to the brim with laid-back decor. Naturally, any real vacation will have to wait. But the good thing is that it’s easy to channel that calm and comfy coastal beach house vibe in our homes with some simple and affordable decor updates.

coastal living roomHow do I design a coastal living room?

For instance, you can layer nautical motifs and materials with bold stripes and beach decor. Or you can add relaxed furnishings and some handmade woven pieces that play up a sense of coastal ease. You can rearrange your spaces to create family-friendly rooms with breezy open layouts like those you see in airy, light-filled oceanside homes. And you can switch up your color palette to include more blues, whites, and earth tones, which are classic beach-inspired hues.

However, keep in mind that there are many ways to approach coastal living room design, which can range from refined and sophisticated to eclectic and modern. So before you dive in, take some time to consider the coastal look you want.

Do you prefer a casual and comfy coastal vibe? Or are you after a tailored and refined look? Knowing the aesthetic and atmosphere you want to play up in your spaces will help streamline your decor choices. Not sure where to start? Don’t worry, we’re here to help!

To provide you with some inspiration and guidance, we’ve broken down two of Modsy’s most popular coastal-style living room looks—the refined Nantucket-style home and the comfy-casual California beach house. Read on to find out how to bring these looks into your rooms!

Coastal Living Room #1: East Coast Nantucket Style

Does your style lean more tailored and traditional? Do you love the idea of a space that’s less of a family hang-out and more like a sitting room in a charming seaside villa? If so, this East Coast take on a coastal living room design might just be the look for you.

With this approach to coastal style, you’ll get rooms that have a refined edge and more formal appeal. It’s the sophisticated Nantucket home you’ve probably seen on Instagram and Pinterest, with its classic and tailored furnishings, symmetrical layouts, elegant nautical motifs, and woven accents. It all adds up to a coastal living room that’s chic and composed but still perfectly relaxed and welcoming.

The Key Elements

To pull together a Nantucket-style coastal living room, you’ll be layering lots of classic flourishes, artisanal textures, and seaside accents. Start with these essential design components.

A formal layout. When it comes to Nantucket-style living rooms, symmetry and balance are paramount. It’s what gives them their formal and elegant look, and you’ll often find these rooms decorated with furnishings and accents in pairs that mirror each other. This is a great way to kick off your design as it establishes a sense of order in the space.

A classic and crisp palette. Strong shades of blues, white tones, and light natural hues are the name of the Nantucket style game. That means these spaces often feature muted palettes with bold contrasts, like a deep-blue sofa amid creamy and bright white pillows and accents, and neutrals coming from materials like jute and cane.

Beautiful natural materials. A mix of elegant materials, from wicker and bone inlay to light driftwood and sisal and seagrass, are quintessential Nantucket. Combine all these gorgeous textures in your accents—like a jute rug, a woven lamp, an inlaid side table—with breathable linen to play up a soft and airy vibe.

Refined furniture. Opt for foundational pieces with a classic appeal to anchor your spaces. That means sofas with streamlined shapes, carved details on tables, and traditional-style armchairs and lamps. You want clean-lined designs that are rooted in comfort and formality. But pay attention to the details also. Design elements like rolled arms, gourd-shaped lamps, and even basketweaving texture can add major visual intrigue and truly shine in your neutral room.

Nautical touches. It wouldn’t be Nantucket coastal style without nautical and seaside accents. Consider coral sculptures, rope lamps, mariner art, and anchors for wall decor, bookshelf accents, and coffee table accessories. Start with a few large accents and layer in smaller ones throughout for an elevated look that’s easy on the eyes. And don’t forget to work in some natural motifs as well, like bird prints and floral patterns, which will complement the nautical theme.

This coastal design style is perfect if you…

  • Enjoy a living room that has an elegant formal look but doesn’t sacrifice comfort and ease.
  • Want a space for conversations that resembles a formal and composed sitting room in an oceanside mansion, except without the overt grandeur.
  • Prefer a more subtle coastal look where the accents are seamlessly worked in throughout the space without appearing overly beachy.
  • Love the idea of a living room that also doubles as an entertaining hub that can serve any occasion, from cocktail parties to cozy weeknights in.
  • Are after a living room that’s timeless and designed to last for many years.

Coastal Living Room #2: West Coast California Style

The California coastal look needs no introduction. Just think of the modern and slightly rustic houses lining the Western coast, from Malibu to Santa Barbara. Laid-back, cool, and unfussy are the underlying sensibilities of the West Coast Cali look. There’s also a bohemian edge to these spaces that make them the complete opposite of East Coast seaside homes.

So if you love the more bohemian living room look that’s all about keeping it casual, the California coastal style is for you. With this approach, the main focus is on casual comfort and an eclectic mix that combines mid-century modern designs, punchy fabrics, bright colors, and a range of beachy art. Just imagine a beach bungalow that’s open and exudes that laid-back West Coast ease.

The Key Elements

To bring the coastal California look into your living room, you’ll want to combine big comfy upholstery, mid-century designs, colorful boho touches, and plenty of patterns. Consider the below pointers to get started.

A casual layout. Keeping your furniture arrangement open and asymmetrical will help set the relaxed tone for your California coastal living room. It also works best here given that there are so many eclectic touches, from bright colors and mismatched pieces to woven textures and beach art. The free-form layout provides a bit of visual levity to these various elements.

A vibrant palette. Here, neutrals and blues are the color foundations. From there you want to pull in more saturated hues, like red, ochre, yellow, and fuschia to play up a boho note. And don’t worry about going over-the-top with color; the neutral colors (white upholstery, earthy wood tones) will keep things grounded and cohesive looking.

Mix of breezy materials. What sets this look apart is the diverse mix of materials, which includes brass and leather along with natural woods and stone. There are also crisp white fabrics mixed with punchy textiles, like kilims and indigo-dyed pillows. The power is in the mix here! Start with your white upholstered pieces and then ground it with a colorful traditional rug. From there, you can work in colors that tie back to the rug and then a few additional bright pops.

Mid-century elements. There’s a strong mid-century modern design influence with this style approach, meaning you want to aim for furniture that’s simple and comfortable. Look for accent pieces that have a Scandinavian sensibility, like tapered legs, slender silhouettes, and warm wood tones. With so much color and pattern, these modern pieces will provide a versatile neutral foundation for all the bolder colors and accessories in the space.

Pattern play. Lots of patterns is a signature of the Cali coastal look. And the sky’s the limit when it comes prints you want to mix together—organic motifs, geometrics, traditional florals, you name it! The more diverse your pattern mix, the better too. Work these designs into your pillows, rug, and art to add instant colorful impact. And don’t forget to keep these outdoorsy, beachy, and nature themes in mind for your art—they add to the pattern mix, too!

This coastal design is perfect if you…

  • Love a casual and cool living space that’s less by-the-book and more organic in its design and layout.
  • Enjoy an open living room that’s all about kicking back with friends and family for game nights, movie viewings, and takeout dinner get-togethers.
  • Are a fan of the beachy California bungalow look that’s big on Mid-Century comfort and ease but still has elements of fun.
  • Need a space that’s versatile and family-friendly but still feels curated and calm.
  • Want your home to evoke a beach house without it feeling theme-y or overly traditional or rustic.

Design Recipe: The Ultimate Guide to Modern Farmhouse Style

Modern Farmhouse style is a trendy look that’s been increasingly growing in popularity for the past year. It’s safe to say that the design world is obsessed (our Modsy team, included.) We’re seeing this interior design style all over HGTV shows and Pinterest—not to mention our Instagram feed. And it’s no wonder farmhouse decor is so popular, as it’s a style that so many of our Modsy customers are after!

While modern farmhouse style is a bit more dramatic than your typical rustic or classic farmhouse look, it still manages to be effortlessly livable. It embodies that perfect mix of modern and relaxed, for a look that’s both on-trend and approachable.

Curious to learn more about this interior design style and how it differs from other takes on farmhouse? Keep reading for our complete guide to modern farmhouse decor and style!

modern farmhouse styleThe Key Elements of Modern Farmhouse Style

So, what exactly is modern farmhouse style? Well, it’s a mix of modern design elements and a comfortable, relaxed farmhouse aesthetic. In general, classic farmhouse design takes inspiration from the look of an actual barn or farmhouse and uses charming, rural, and cozy decorative elements throughout. But with modern farmhouse homes, think of it as just that: spaces inspired by modern farmhouses that feature bright, contemporary design elements but still have that cozy vibe. To that point, you’ll notice mid-century modern undertones in this style—but the foundational pieces are still decidedly comfortable.

modern farmhouse styleColors + Textures

Modern farmhouse features a dynamic mix of materials and textures. Specifically, a good dose of natural texture is key to this look. Think leather, natural wood, metal, stone, jute, linen. The possibilities are endless—and we definitely recommend mixing and matching various natural textures! Natural materials with both tactile and visual texture are key to this look, no matter what specific material you land on. But you’ll also want to incorporate pops of unexpected materials like brass and velvet, which give a modern edge to this style.

A neutral and cohesive color palette helps keep modern farmhouse style from feeling too eclectic though. You can go with a variety of neutral tones for added contrast and warmth, but keeping all the tones in the same color family grounds the look. And, while the palette of modern farmhouse design leans neutral, it’s still very saturated and high-contrast, with a mix of materials and textures throughout—which helps keep it grounded in a modern aesthetic. You can see that contrast in the light fixtures, the natural wood furniture elements, and in other dark metal accents!

modern farmhouse styleModern Farmhouse Furniture

As you can see in these designs—with the curved swivel chairs, the streamlined sofa, and the round drum coffee table—the foundational furniture of modern farmhouse style is comfortable, but each piece has a sleek, modern shape. And though there’s no applied ornamentation on these pieces, there’s a subtle decorative nature that’s found in the texture and material of the furniture and rug. This can be seen in the piping detail on the sofa, or the choice of velvet for the material of the chairs. It’s these small details that really elevate modern farmhouse design.

Modern Farmhouse Decor

But special details aren’t just for the furniture. To help this look really come to life, pay attention to the details within decor pieces as well. Modern farmhouse spaces tend to go with industrial light fixtures to add a  sculptural, architectural element. Along those lines, modern farmhouse decor has a strong emphasis on geometry in the decorative details—from lights and mirrors to art and tabletop decor. The shapes and patterns you see in modern farmhouse decor are all very geometric and non-objective, with serious mid-century influences. And these elements are extra noticeable due to the minimal approach to styling that modern farmhouse interior design loves—it’s all about letting individual pieces shine!

Depending on if you lean more farmhouse or more modern, the wall art you choose can help lean the overall vibe of your space in your preferred direction. If you lean more modern, opt for abstract line art prints and geometric, metal-framed mirrors. If you lean more traditional, choose a landscape painting, nature-themed art, or vintage prints. But you can also create a happy mix of both!

How to Get the Modern Farmhouse Look in Your Room

Want to see some specifics of how this plays out in different rooms throughout your home? Keep reading!

Modern Farmhouse Entryway

Welcome to your dream modern farmhouse entryway. In this space, you’ll see natural textures galore, in woods, a chunky jute knit basket, and even some metal. But all that texture is balanced out with sleek, minimal forms in the furniture and decor. You’ll also notice that minimal approach to styling that we mentioned earlier—this space being a beautiful balance of function and negative space. There’s a basket for easy storage, a tabletop bowl as a catchall, and a chair to sit on when putting on and taking off shoes. But overall it’s not overly styled and has a minimal aesthetic.

The chair in this set-up is actually a perfect example of a traditional form reinterpreted through a modern lens—the embodiment of modern farmhouse. Windsor and spindle-style chairs are super traditional. But this specific style has more of a sleek form and pared-down look, which is much more modern. And the black metal is an unexpected material for this style of chair—which once again perfectly combines all the best parts of farmhouse and modern design elements!

 

Modern Farmhouse Living Room

For this living room in a modern farmhouse lakeside retreat, we started with comfortable foundations—specifically with this plush, sink-in style sofa. We wanted a sofa that you could cozy up on with a book or for a movie marathon. (Added bonus: the dark upholstery is very kid-friendly!) We then sprinkled in some items featuring rustic and natural materials throughout the space—in the wood coffee table, the metal side table, and the leather accent chairs. But these chairs also have a streamlined shape with geometric forms, giving them that mid-century modern flair.

As in any good modern farmhouse space, we went with industrial light fixtures, in both the metal floor and table lamps and the brass pendant light. And the abstract art in this space also skews modern. But we balanced those elements with a traditional rug that anchors the space and adds a pop of warmth and vintage flair. While overall the color palette is neutral, the rug adds just the right amount of color to the space and balances out the white walls! There’s definitely a push and pull in this space. Ultimately, this living room is all about striking the right balance between old and new, expected and unexpected!

Modern Farmhouse Bedroom

This bedroom definitely skews to the more modern side of Farmhouse Modern. The foundations feel more rooted in a mid-century aesthetic, as you can see in the bed frame, the nightstands, the side chair, and the bench. But at the same time, the bed is another visual reference to the traditional spindle style! It’s just a more streamlined take on traditional design elements and styles, just like the chair in the entryway. Layers of textiles—from the rug and curtains to pillows and blankets—add warmth and softness to this room and balance out the sharp lines of the mid-century modern furniture.

Meanwhile, the patterns in the rug and pillows feel very traditional—and paired together gives the slightest eclectic vibe to the space, along with the most subtle pop of color (tones of pink and red warm up this space). The abstract line art is very modern and offers a dynamic juxtaposition with the more traditional design elements in this bedroom.

What’s the difference between farmhouse and modern farmhouse?

There are many variations on farmhouse—two of the most notable being classic and rustic farmhouse styles.

Classic farmhouse is a more traditional style with “French provincial” aesthetic influences. It’s a softer, more feminine approach to farmhouse style and creates that classic cottage chic vibe. The color palette for classic farmhouse style is muted, featuring pastels, white-washed woods, and classic design details like button tufting, exposed nailheads, and ornate carvings.

Rustic farmhouse style is a less mid-century and more rustic/industrial take on farmhouse design than modern farmhouse. This is the embodiment of that classic Chip and Joanna Gaines look. It has a heavy focus on rugged materials—like rough-hewn and natural woods, wrought iron, and leather with a rich patina—along with more vintage and antique pieces. But there are also traditional design elements throughout, like spindle chairs, oriental rugs, and vintage prints.

Learn more about the difference between modern, classic, and rustic farmhouse interior design.

Is modern farmhouse style right for you?

This is the perfect look for you if you want the comforts of farmhouse style but also a trendy, modern aesthetic. It’s approachable and easy to personalize, which we love. With the combination of comfortable foundations, sleek modern shapes and sculptural, geometric design elements, this is also the perfect look for couples who are trying to meet in the middle between practical comfort and modern design preferences. It’s like a compromise between modern design and traditional country farmhouse—but it looks so good, neither of you will feel like you’re losing anything. That’s the best kind of compromise, right?

Three Ways To Get the Oh-So-Popular Farmhouse Style In Your Home

farmhouse interior designWhen it comes to decor trends, Farmhouse style has it all—think texture, contrast, and coziness all rolled into one perfect space. It’s a super trendy style that has taken the design world by storm. You’ve likely seen it everywhere from your Pinterest and Instagram feeds to popular TV shows (we’re looking at you Fixer Upper!). But what exactly does “farmhouse” mean when it comes to interior design?? This guide will walk you through the ins and outs of farmhouse style to give you the full scoop on what exactly it is and how to get the look in your own home!

What is Farmhouse Interior Design?

Farmhouse interior design is a decorating style that takes inspiration from the look of an actual farmhouse and uses decorative elements that you’d find in rural or agricultural areas. Farmhouse interiors are warm, cozy, relaxing and full of charm and character. Generally, the style turns up its nose at more contemporary design sensibilities and prefers to hearken back to “simpler” times.

However, to keep the look from veering into too much “country kitsch,” it’s important to maintain a stylish balance of old and new and to make sure the focus is on a natural look. In other words, farmhouse design isn’t code for going overboard with the mason jars, shiplap, and rooster paraphernalia!

Is Farmhouse Going Out of Style in 2020?

Far from it! While the initial farmhouse craze might be dying down, we’re not seeing this style going anywhere anytime soon. In fact, we’re actually seeing the farmhouse style becoming more nuanced and expressed in several different ways. One farmhouse doesn’t suit everybody!

What are these different types of farmhouse style? The main types we’re noticing fall into three distinct buckets—rustic, classic, and modern takes on the farmhouse interior design style. While all of these looks are popular, they have some pretty distinct differences. To help you sort it all out, we’re breaking down the recipe for each farmhouse style in one home designed in three different ways.

Come along for a mini home tour of these three unique farmhouse style designs to find out all you need to know about farmhouse interior design and which version might be right for you!

Rustic Farmhouse Interior Design

The Style DNA: Rustic meets traditional with a vintage twist

The Vibe: Cozy and fresh with lots of countryside character

Rustic farmhouse design is all about celebrating the natural and rough-hewn aspects of the farmhouse aesthetic. Think of this version of the style as a blend between rustic and traditional, that even sports a bit of an industrial flair. The rustic elements bring a heavy focus on rugged materials—think raw and unfinished woods, chunky knits, linens, metals, and leather with patina.

The traditional elements play a supporting role, adding the vintage/antique flair that gives this version of farmhouse style its distinct personality—it’s definitely a look that loves a bit of nostalgia! All in all, the look blends streamlined furniture with traditional design influences and tends toward a sharp, grey-scale and high contrast color palette.

The result is a style that strikes a balance of hard and soft, incorporating both traditional and fresh design elements. We like to think this farmhouse decor scheme would make even Chip and Joanna proud.

rustic farmhouse living roomThe Rustic Farmhouse Living Room

Our rustic farmhouse living room is anchored by comfy foundational furniture. The neutral sofa prioritizes comfort and style with a simple form and sleek tailoring. The accent chairs pull in a traditional spindle detail in a fresh new way, for a stylish take on cozy charm. We love how the natural wood tones of the chair, coffee table, and mantle help warm up the grey-scale palette. Details like the animal art, metal accents (peek the light fixtures and decor) and geometric patterns in the rug and pillows offer a subtle, yet curated approach to farmhouse interior design.

rustic farmhouse dining roomThe Rustic Farmhouse Dining Room

As with the living room, our rustic farmhouse dining space is all about function with a stylish edge. The foundational furniture sets a solid and functional foundation, while also bringing in the key elements of the rustic farmhouse style—distressed woods, unfinished metal, all with a slight antique/vintage vibe.

Once you’ve got your foundation, add in some industrial accents like the pendant light fixtures and dining chairs to bring contrast and an elevated look to the space. Notice how the accent furniture has a slightly more industrial vibe, which balances out traditional elements in foundations—a key element in rustic farmhouse style!

Top it all off with fresh, high-contrast artwork. This is where the style most differs from a more traditional approach to farmhouse style. Instead of pastoral scenes or landscape paintings, rustic farmhouse decor prefers non-objective prints and more contemporary black & white landscape photography. Altogether the effect is fresh, inspiring, and will give you room a polished yet cozy look.

rustic farmhouse bedroomThe Rustic Farmhouse Bedroom

For the bedroom, we took a similar approach to the other spaces—start with your foundations and build up. Here we chose a wrought-iron bed which brings a traditional/antique vibe, rendered in a contemporary way. Paired with the sleek nightstands and bench (which both perfectly balance rustic materials with a contemporary shape), the look is the perfect balance of old and new.

To keep the look from feeling too cold or industrial, we balanced out all the wood, leather, and metal with plush textiles and lots of layers. The neutral rug grounds the space, and we love its traditional pattern in a washed-out antique fade, which adds to the vintage vibe in a softer way. Then, top off the bed with layers of contrasting pillows and don’t forget to add curtains to further soften the look. A few woven baskets bring another pop of natural texture and are a great bedroom storage solution.

Finally, the art in the bedroom is a bit softer than other places in the house—it is your bedroom, after all. We love these vintage-style bird prints, which have an almost eclectic vibe. Together they bring a very traditional, antique contrast to the more rugged elements in the space and totally seal the deal on the farmhouse vibe.

modern farmhouse interior designModern Farmhouse Interior Design

Style DNA: Modern designs mixed with rustic materials and natural textures

The Vibe: On-trend, a bit dramatic, and effortlessly livable

Modern farmhouse is easily the trendiest version of all three farmhouse looks. It’s comfy, cozy, and full of charm, offering a unique take on comfort and simplicity. If you’re one to shy away from farmhouse interior design because you think it’s outdated, modern farmhouse design will prove you wrong!

In this style, modern design fuses with a comfortable, relaxed farmhouse aesthetic. It’s an eclectic mix of styles and materials anchored in rustic foundations but shows off a more contemporary approach to shapes and decor. Modern design elements like curved or streamlined forms, unexpected materials, and sleek lighting play a big role in this trendy style.

modern farmhouse living roomThe Modern Farmhouse Living Room

Our modern farmhouse living room look features a mix of materials that make for a dynamic space. This design features everything from wood to linen, velvet, brass, marble, ceramics, and seagrass! While we incorporated a range of tones to give the room contrast and warmth, the key to mixing these materials (and acing modern farmhouse look) is sticking to a neutral and cohesive color palette.

In this take on the style, our foundational furniture is still comfy but features slightly more modern appeal than traditional farmhouse-style shapes. For example, the sleek sofa with piping detail, the velvet armchairs, and the round coffee table, all play with rustic design elements in a completely modern way.

Overall, the accent furniture and decor take more risks and are the pieces that pull in the texture that makes for a cohesive look. The brass and marble side table is super mod and the velvet club chairs provide a familiar silhouette in an unexpected material. There’s also some fun play with geometry at work, like the sputnik pendant, side table, lamp, vases, and art that nods to a mid-century modern influence.

The secret to keeping this look from straying too modern? The symmetrical layout! This more formal structure to the room anchors in a more rustic/traditional aesthetic and keeps it from straying too far down an eclectic path.

To get the modern farmhouse look in your dining room, stick with traditional undertones in your furniture but look for pieces updated with a modern edge. For example, here the dining table offers a streamlined take on the antique trestle table and the schoolhouse chairs feel vintage and mod all at once.

Meanwhile, the dark metal accents add an industrial edge that adds much-needed contrast against the natural wood, which works overtime to warm up the design. Then to combat all the modern-ness happening in the furniture, we added an abstracted landscape print to soften up the look and tie in more “traditional” farmhouse vibes. Don’t forget the patterned rug underfoot, which enlivens the space and makes the room a little more fun and playful!

modern farmhouse bedroomThe Modern Farmhouse Bedroom

For the bedroom, we started with traditional shapes and gave them modern updates, like the spindle bed frame and seagrass bench. These pieces are classic and draw on traditional design elements, but here are given sleek modern facelifts with their streamlined forms. The nightstands feel traditional, but the touch of brass hardware warms up the look with a modern edge.

This take on farmhouse decor has a bit more color to it, with the pillows and rug. And the abstract line art is a fresh addition to the space and helps pull the whole design together.

classic farmhouse interior designClassic Farmhouse Interior Design

Style DNA: Classic designs mixed with countryside charm

The Vibe: Refined cottage style with a warm and timeless appeal

Classic farmhouse, in contrast to rustic or modern, is the most traditional of the bunch and leans into a more “French provincial” aesthetic. This style would be the closest example of “shabby chic” and is a much softer, more feminine approach to farmhouse design—think classic cottage chic. The look starts with comfy foundational furniture, but pushes more classic than rustic farmhouse, and then layers in accents of washed-out wood or painted decor for a more antique vibe.

Classic farmhouse also depends on a light palette of whites and creams with added pops of green and blue. The overall look skews more pastel and avoids contrast—think light, airy fabrics, and white-washed wood tones! This look should blend seamlessly together for a light, feminine look with few instances of metal or darkness.

classic farmhouse living roomThe Classic Farmhouse Living Room

At first glance, it’s easy to see how our classic farmhouse living room differs from the previous versions. While the rustic and modern farmhouse looks are all about form and material, classic farmhouse style puts much more emphasis on classic details, like button tufting, nailhead, ornate carvings, and applied ornament. Here the space is grounded by a French country-style rolled arm sofa and armchair duo for a super comfy, classic style. The linen upholstery feels very countryside charming, which is perfect for this look.

Our accent furniture in this design features classic details like flutes and spindles—it all has a carved, ornate decorative quality. Botanical prints warm up the space and bring a natural touch and accents like whitewashed wood, antiqued surfaces, and distressed finishes bring in the charming countryside quality.

For the dining room, we again started with classic foundational furniture. The substantial and ornate pedestal stable grounds the space and features intricately carved details for a classic touch. The linen slipcovered chairs keep the look comfy but sophisticated, while the smaller scale of the dining table keeps the overall vibe more intimate and cozy.

All of the distressed wood finishes in the space give the room a homey vibe. Nature-themed art, like the bird gallery wall, along with a few curated pops of greenery give the space that classic cottage look. The whole space is tied together by the traditional, yet delicate, patterned rug, which adds a slight pop of texture to the space.

classic farmhouse bedroomThe Classic Farmhouse Bedroom

Nothing says “classic farmhouse” more than an upholstered headboard with tufting—it’s an important detail for classic style. The antique style rug has a washed-out oriental pattern that offers warmth and texture without overpowering the room. The lamps, bench and nightstands all have a classic shape and a serene, neutral color palette keeps the room cohesive and elegant.

We love the traditional art above the headboard! The cottage landscape painting is a purely traditional take on a farmhouse motif that feels right at home in this style. The hanging planters on the wall and the leafy green tree give the room subtle pops of color while bringing a little nature inside.

Tour this Home Designed in Decadent Bohemian Elegance

bohemian designWhen you think of boho style, you generally think of rooms full of bright colors, bold textiles, and tons of greenery. There’s probably also designs with Spanish influences and organic touches.

You’ll still find all of those elements inside this home designed in Bohemian Elegance. Except rather than taking center stage, they’re much more subdued. That means landscape art in black and white, plants in white ceramics, traditional rugs with global textiles, and clean-lined furniture with rustic-organic pieces.

It might all sound a tad formal, but the rooms are far from that. While Bohemian Elegance has a pared-down, curated feel, it also has the openness and free-spirited ease of boho-style homes.

Still not sure how that all plays out? Read on to peek inside a home our designers dreamed up that captures this idea of Bohemian Elegance—which we’re seeing as a trend that’s on the rise. And don’t miss our tips for bringing the look into your spaces.

The Entryway

From the moment you step into our Bohemian Elegance home, you’re in an entry that showcases a lesson in curation and sets the tone for the rest of the space.

Shop This Room

The Key Elements:

Make subtle nods to nature. It’s about minimal styling and finishing touches that bring the outdoors in. Think black-and-white landscape art and greenery and plants arranged in smooth, white ceramics.

Add boho details. Go for interesting boho elements, like the apogee arch shape of the floor mirror here and the kilim rug in muted desert hues. They’ll complement your natural accents while keeping the overall minimal vibe.

Play with color and contrast. Mix black and white with hushed colors for a palette that balances boho and contemporary. It’s a discerning approach that demonstrates how you can add high impact through restraint.

boho decorThe Living Room

When it comes to the main living area, it’s all about combining eclectic style with rustic elements. There’s a mix of warm materials and mid-century designs, layers of soft global colors and patterns, and it’s all symmetrically laid out. The result is a boho vibe that’s carefully curated.

Shop This Room

The Key Elements:

Mix materials and shapes. Bohemian Elegance is about the eclectic materials and textures combined with classic, clean-lined designs. It’s what creates the signature dynamic and layered look. Think a mid-century chair with tan leather and a crisp sofa piled with colorful boho pillows.

Pattern up in earth tones. Aim for a neutral but warm color palette, so go big with earth tones. Warm leather and wood tones will pop next to patterns in indigo, rusty red, and inky grays. Try anchoring your room with a vintage distressed rug that has a large-scale pattern in desert hues.

Organize with symmetry. There’s an unexpected approach to styling in boho spaces. This gets even more structured with the Bohemian Elegance look. Lean into symmetry with two facing mid-century sofas and a pair of matching leather chairs. They’ll provide a streamlined base that lets you layer in boho accents and colors without it all looking haphazard.

bohemian eleganceThe Corner Nook

Every home needs a corner spotlight that succinctly showcases the style of your home, be it a reading nook, a gallery wall, or a comfy resting spot off to the side of your living room.

Shop This Room

The Key Elements:

Add a statement piece. An anchor piece is always a good idea when you’re trying to bring focus to a corner. Consider a light-wood bench when you’re going for an elegant bohemian design. It will captivate and tie in the style of the home nicely—especially when it’s piled with fun graphic pillows.

Get eclectic with vertical space. It’s easy to go heavy on the floor and furniture accents and forget about the walls. Fill out your space with a tall plant and an art piece that feels unexpected but ties in the nature theme, as in this tiger print.

Play up an open vibe. Minimal styling is the surefire way to set off a corner area without it taking away from your overall living space. Go with a softer palette of neutrals and keep your accents bold but airy, like a bench that has an open-base design.

eclectic style dining roomThe Dining Room

In case you missed it, we recently called out the rise of the Minimalist-Maximalist trend. Bohemian Elegance plays with elements of that trend also, as in this dining space that combines bold wood and metal designs with simple silhouettes.

Shop This Room

The Key Elements:

Show off natural textures. There’s no better place to let textures shine, like the wood grain table, the woven chairs, and the polished-metal cabinet and pendant here. The key is making sure to balance them so no one element outplays another. You can do that by pulling in designs with these materials that also have bold shapes.

Get linear and sculptural. Boho style favors sinuous shapes and eye-catching art and colors. Here, they’re pared-down without losing any of the boho-style charms. Lean into abstract linework art and clean-lined chairs instead to play up that casual mix of fun forms.

Keep it lightly accented. With so much texture and strong shapes, it’s easy to overwhelm a space so make sure to only pull in only accents that add a bold note. And keep them minimal for an open, relaxed vibe in your living room. It’s about being high-impact and approachable.

boho bedroom decorThe Bedroom

Playful meets polished in the bedroom, where relaxed and eclectic furnishings and accents come together. It’s an unusual mix that includes a tailored bed and midcentury-style pendant, boho pillows and rug with a classic bench. It all adds up to a bohemian design that’s elegant and charming.

Shop This Room

The Key Elements:

Layer up with eclectic comfort. Mismatched frames, piles of patterned pillows, a large vase for the floor… It’s all about combining quintessential boho design elements with classic pieces that are big on comfort. Just be sure to keep your palette consistent with the rest of your home.

Pull in a captivating light. The best way to bring the mid-century vibe into the bedroom is to add a sputnik chandelier. This gives off a light and airy feel and looks like a dandelion puff—which is just oh-so-perfectly boho!

Embrace light and dark. Finally, with bedroom furnishings, it’s about balancing formal and relaxed pieces, foundations that are big on comfort and accents with personality. Contrast traditional nightstands and a formal bed or bench with a punchy rug and eclectic art, all of which will play up the eye-catching effect.

Inside Our Nursery Design For RHOBH’s Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave

Homeowner: Teddi Mellencamp of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Location: Los Angeles, CA

Room: Blank canvas nursery and playroom

Her Style: Modern and fun!

teddi mellencamp nurseryThe Backstory

Teddi and her husband Edwin already have two kids, son Cruz, 5, and daughter Slate, 7. And now with baby number three on the way, it was time to create more space in their family home.

Teddi was ready to start fresh with a blank canvas room that would become a nursery design for her new little girl. But she didn’t want to stop there. She wanted to take this opportunity to also build out a playroom that would be a space for all three kids as well as a fun gathering place where the whole family could relax and hang out. It all made perfect sense. There was just one thing: She knew she needed design help to pull it all together.

teddi mellencamp nurseryThe Design Dilemma

“We have been in our current home for a little over two years. I never had a knack for design, and when I had [my husband] Edwin design our other kids’ rooms, he chose everything in white,” says Teddi, pointing out how it wasn’t exactly the most practical or kid-friendly choice. “So this time, I thought it would be best to have a pro come in and do it,” she says.

It made for the perfect solution given that Teddi herself didn’t really have a clear vision for her playroom or nursery design. “I just wanted something fun and modern,” she says.

The Modsy Moment

When Teddi turned to Modsy for design guidance, we were ready to help her realize her nursery and playroom dreams. And even though she wasn’t entirely sure what she wanted, she knew there were essentials that she needed, which provided a great starting point for the designs. “I knew 100 percent, I needed a rocker, because obviously you spend a lot of time breastfeeding or just cuddling with the baby,” as Teddi tells PEOPLE magazine.

In the end, we were able to build on her needs and create spaces that captured her modern, fun, and comfy style. “Modsy was amazing in how they just took my jumbled words like ‘clean, organized, and family-friendly’ and brought to life the kind of space our family wanted with exactly what we envisioned together in the process,” says Teddi.

How Modsy’s Designs Helped Teddi

“Modsy’s designs live up to the hype! They made everything so effortless and it was such a positive experience,” says Teddi of the design process. “There was always great energy throughout the whole process. Seeing the initial completed rooms felt so good—and it really gave us peace of mind,” she adds. “It instantly improved my life because it was one less thing to give me anxiety in the long run.”

The Real Results

Teddi has since finished decorating her nursery and playroom. Now she’s ready to welcome her new little girl into her new nursery design. In the final decor, Teddi also included one adorable and heartfelt accent piece. “Slate and Cruz both had artwork that said “You are loved” and I made sure to have a similar piece in the new nursery,” she says. “There’s also an adorable llama that I hope the baby will be as obsessed with as I am.”

The final spaces also incorporated function in a way that serves both children and adults alike. “In the playroom, having a Murphy bed is great because it can also act as a guest room in a pinch,” says Teddi. “I’m so grateful to our designers for getting us baby-ready. It feels truly real now and our home is finally fully prepared for our family.”

“Modsy has been truly a godsend in helping us prepare not only our nursery but our children’s playroom,” says Teddi. ”Everybody is happy and we are all obsessed. The kiddos don’t want to leave their new space. It really feels like theirs and I love that for them.”

winter home designThe Entryway

From the moment you step inside, light-wood furnishings with mid-century notes and a mix of natural materials and woven textures abound. These elements set the stage for the modern-rustic tone and sense of ease throughout the home.

rustic entrywayThe Key Entryway Elements:

Patterned woven textures. What makes baskets and natural-fiber rugs appear extra cozy are designs with patterns. Think geometrics and stripes, which lend a warm, visual element.

Sculptural natural woods. Your foyer is the perfect showcase for wood pieces that have organic silhouettes. More than in any space, they’ll add focus and leave a strong impression in your entryway.

Artisanal modern-rustic touches. From big pieces, like a spindle bench, to carved wood trays and homespun ceramics, these handmade elements are details that instantly cozy up any entry.

winter home design The Living Room

Cozy and serene, the living room evokes the look and feel of an elegant farmhouse with a spa-like vibe. The palette is comprised of soft neutrals, the textures are breezy and sumptuous, and curated furnishings keep the space feeling light and airy. Talk about the perfect winter decor escape.

The Key Living Room Elements:

Solid hues with subtle lines. For a calming space that hits the perfect modern-rustic note, opt for furnishings like slipcovered sofas and clean-lined leather chairs, in quiet solid hues. These make for the perfect mix of comfort and bold that also looks serene and sophisticated.

Light upholstery, big textures. Solid upholstery in light colors doesn’t necessarily mean basic textures. Go for durable linen and luxe leather as well as chunky natural fibers. They compliment the soothing lines of the furniture by introducing a comfy and cozy touch.

White on off-whites. There are white-on-white moments elsewhere, but in the living room, it’s all about varying the crisp tone with off-whites and beiges. Why? It plays beautifully with the leather, fabric upholstery, natural fibers, and rustic fireplace and shiplap walls.

cozy winter reading nookThe Reading Nook

No winter home design is complete without a cozy nook (or two or three). And our home is no exception, although instead of lots of furnishings, we took a pared-down approach. A crisp slipcover armchair ready with a warm throw and raw wood accents lend a sense of Scandinavian calm and ease.

The Key Nook Elements:

Classic curvy chair. Rather than a rectangular armchair, pick a piece that hugs the body all around and makes for an easy place to curl up. Add a throw and you’re good to go for the winter months ahead.

Raw wood elements. With just the right amount in a small nook, raw wood accents and finishing touches can provide warm rustic appeal as well as a soothing, toned-down vibe.

Fine-line art and details. Instead of graphic art, elegant line drawings and prints make for a softer, more neutral alternative. They lend intrigue without overwhelming a small rustic space.

winter dining roomThe Dining Room

When it comes to a warm wintry gathering spot, tap into the Danish sentiment of Hygge, which celebrates all things simple, beautiful, and cozy. Scandinavian-inspired dining furniture along with pretty woven accents and ceramics in organic shapes will usher in the quiet ethos perfectly.

The Key Dining Room Elements:

Streamlined Scandi designs. Chic Danish Modern pieces and designs with Scandinavian influences will drive the Hygge aesthetic home. It’s all about keeping it curated and opting for fewer pieces that are simple and beautiful.

Minimal accents. Truly embrace the less is more aesthetic. It’s about pulling back on accessories and bringing in only pieces that inspire a feeling of joy, comfort, and coziness.

Textural focal points. Whether it’s a woven light fixture or a serene painting and tall vase, layer accents that play up colors and textures. It’s a subtle way to bring depth to a minimalist space.

winter decor bedroomThe Bedroom

A luxurious and heavily layered bedroom is the true heart of a winter home. Because let’s face it, this is the one space we’ll be spending the most time in, morning and night. That means soft textures galore, colors that soothe, and a room that’s endlessly cozy and filled with natural light.

The Key Bedroom Elements:

Lots of cozy layers. This goes without saying. Winter calls for piles of pillows, throws, and textiles on textiles. Fur blankets, chunky knits, wool duvets… you name the texture, there’s a place for it here. Another essential cozy element? Pops of leafy greenery.

The most neutral palette. More than any other room, the bedroom should have a crisp neutral palette. It’s all about whites and grays. The key is to give it a wintry cool look that feels luxe and comfy.

A hint of high-contrast color. With all the white and grays, hints of black will help ground the room and give it more dimension. The best accent is a fluffy Moroccan rug or a modern black-framed mirror that reflects light but also makes for a sculptural focus.

Trend Spotlight: Designing The Perfect Minimalist Maximalist Home

minimalist maximalist entrywayOver the past year, we’ve seen people lean into the less-is-more mantra when it comes to their home. Rather than having more things, many people are opting to live with less furniture and decor and choosing pieces that prioritize good design and rooms that are layered but not cluttered. Think highly curated spaces with a few statement pieces and a tight selection of equally bold accents.

Enter the new look that’s trending for 2020—we’re calling “Minimalist Maximalist.” What exactly does that mean? Exactly what it sounds like. On their own, many people find the styles of minimalism too sterile and maximalism too opulent, so this look is the perfect blend of the two. The style plays with the unlikely combo of a minimalist’s design principles and a maximalist’s love of patterns, colors, textures, and all things over-the-top.

We know what you’re thinking: How does all that work in the home? Find out below with a peek inside a Minimalist Maximalist home dreamed up by our expert designers.

minimalist maximalist entrywayIn an Entry

Our Minimalist Maximalist entry establishes the nuanced aesthetic right off the bat: Dramatic interiors with statement pieces and light styling.

Shop This Room

The Key Elements:

Show strong forms. The bolder the design, the fewer things you need. To master the look you’ll want to hone in on one or two sculptural and captivating entryway pieces that will set the stage for your home. Look for pieces like a rounded wood buffet, an angular chair, or a chicly shaped sconce.

Edit your accessories. One of the key elements of the look is minimal styling. Only add decorative accessories that truly evoke the look you want in your space, be it a set of beautiful ceramics or a compelling art piece.

minimalist maximalist living roomIn a Sitting Area

With living area furniture, sculptural upholstery will go a long way when paired with beautifully crafted contemporary pieces. It’s about playing up shapes and materials in the same space.

Shop This Room

The Key Elements:

Go for big curves. Rounded and curved sofas and chairs were also a big trend in the past year and they’re the perfect showpieces for a Minimalist Maximalist sitting area. Limit your pieces and don’t worry about colors too much. It’s all about the silhouettes here.

Add simple, luxe accents. By that we mean bringing in tables, lighting, and other small objects that highlight gorgeous materials and designs. Case in point: the black metal pendant and the marble and slate coffee table have a streamlined look that’s unobtrusive but still striking.

In a Breakfast Corner

Perhaps the best example of the Minimalist Maximalist look is a space with high-contrast shades—be it in a corner dining space or a vignette. Think light meets dark, but layered.

Shop This Room

The Key Elements:

Layer up with black and white. Find distinct furniture pieces and go full-on black and white. It will set a modern yet maximalist foundation for you to dress your space up and down as needed. The idea here is that you want a bold backdrop to work off of.

Keep to clean-lined materials. Black and white can easily feel sparse and stark but you also don’t want to add in too much. A great way to balance the high-contrast palette is to work in warm metals, like brass and copper. Just make sure those designs have contemporary and streamlined silhouettes that add drama but still feel airy.

In a Display Area

By now, you already know that this look is about adding statement piece after statement piece. You can take that approach with any room or corner, like this curated showcase of artful designs and objects.

Shop This Room

The Key Elements:

Bring in statement pieces. When we say statement pieces, keep in mind that we’re referring to pieces that have presence. So choose a piece that resonates with your style, be it one that has strong sculptural appeal or is painted in an unexpected color. When it doubt, consider if your furniture piece has a shape that holds your attention.

Have fewer but more impactful art. There’s no gallery wall when it comes to this look! Instead of arranging art and objects en masse, pick larger scale art and sculptures that have a minimal look. Think abstract, modern geometric art, and simple sculptures and bowls. They’re the perfect balance to big statement furniture pieces.

In a Dining Space

An attractive way to bring the look into your home is in the dining room, which is always a great place to experiment with mixing shapes and colors. Here, start bold and end with subtlety.

Shop This Room

The Key Elements:

Contrast sharp shapes. You already know that curvy, rounded designs play a big role in the Minimalist Maximalist room, but the key to making them work is to offset them with furniture that has sharp angles—rectilinear tables and cabinets, clean-lined rugs. It’s a push-pull tension of the bold and the soft lines that adds major intrigue.

Embrace neutrals with a pop. With sculptural forms and furniture, a neutral palette will help tone down the visual linearity. But all neutral can feel too minimal, so make sure to add in a pop of color, whether you go big with bright-painted walls or with simple small accents that add pops of vibrant colors. Think black, white, neutral, plus a pop!

Another element of the Minimalist Maximalist style is the focus on furniture and accents that add visual interest. With a workspace, you can do that by mixing stunning furniture and accessories in warm neutrals.

The Key Elements:

Work in classic designs and finishes. One approach to maximalism is to go with classic furnishings with traditional finishes, like burled wood and mottled surfaces, along with classic forms, like trestle bases and arched lighting. These have a way of adding impact with a formal bent, so don’t rule them out when you’re looking for statement pieces.

Balance with pared-down patterns. To take the edge off of traditional furnishings, you can tone it down with modernized patterns. We’re talking about designs, like a chevron or geometric rug that’s rendered in warm neutrals. Here, less color is definitely more, and you can mix in contemporary and abstract art in similar hues to create additional focal points.

minimalist maximalist bedroomIn a Bedroom

Contrary to the super-crisp and soothing bedroom, this look calls for a daring approach with opulent designs and oversized furniture. Go for substantial pieces that are anything but boring.

Shop This Room

The Key Elements:

Focus on opulent designs. From a stately upholstered bed to a meticulously carved dresser, you’re going for big style and intrigue in the bedroom. Keep this approach to just the furniture pieces and scale back on your accents, which is in keeping with the overall look and vibe of your rooms.

Soften with crisp textiles. In the bedroom, you’ll want to pull in some key neutral pieces that provide light contrast. The easiest way to achieve that is to lay down a rug in soft hues and keep to simple white bedding. Unfussy, geometric art will also help bring attention to the bright, crispness of your textiles.

What 3 Designers Think of Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year

pantone classic blueNow that we’ve looked back at 10 years of Pantone colors, it’s time to turn our focus to the future. Pantone recently released their new 2020 Color Of The Year, Classic Blue, and we can’t help but wonder how it will take shape in the world of design.

Classic Blue is a color that sounds quite a lot like how it looks. Not quite navy, far from sky, it’s a blue that is dark, deep, and almost has an earthy undertone. Pantone describes Classic Blue, a color that brings to mind the sky at dusk. In their words it is nonaggressive, easily relatable, and a solid and dependable shade meant to provide refuge. According to the institute, it was chosen in response to the frenzy and anxiety in the world today brought on by technology.

As is usually the case, peoples’ reactions to the color have been somewhat polarized. Some argue that the color is forgettable and irrelevant to the current landscape of unrest and information overload. Others in design, fashion, and visual industries have jumped on board noting that some of the biggest recent trends have already started to set the tone for a year of Classic Blue.

Classic Blue in Home Design

Naturally, we’re of the camp that’s thrilled about the crisp, solid blue shade. Here’s why: First off, we think the color signifies a return to aspects of traditional home design. People are looking for spaces that are inviting, warm, and comfortable, and are calling on nostalgia to achieve those feelings. Classic blue is—well—classic, and it’s a color that has always been in style and will continue to be. It’s a sound choice for anyone who wants their environment to feel like a steady moment in a changing world.

Not to mention, blue is consistently the number one color choice among Modsy customers. And now we expect to see a lot more of it along with a larger a resurgence of classic forms and styles, including the re-introduction of antiques in interiors.

To put Classic Blue to the test, we tasked three Modsy designers to dream up spaces that work in the new hue. Take a look at their designs below and get their tips for working the color into your home decor.

classic blue home designLook #1: Classic & Warmly Glamorous

Modsy Designer: Aimee M.

Why She Loves Classic Blue: For Aimee, the hue is endlessly inspiring and versatile. She describes Classic Blue as truly a timeless color that has the ability to transcend styles and trends.

How She Used The Color: Aimee designed a bedroom that brings the boldness and versatility of Classic Blue into chic focus. Paired with bright whites and contrasting hues, Aimee demonstrates how the color has enough brilliance and pop to steal any show.

However, she thinks that the blue shade’s real power is when it’s used as the primary color in a space. This allows the deep undertones to create a sense of swaddled security and grounded calm.

Case in point: This bedroom she designed is equal parts traditional and glamorous, and is steeped in a deep sense of comfort.

Look #2: Classic & Simply Modern

Modsy Designer: Jessi V.

Why She Loves Classic Blue: The blue shade reminds Jessi of how, in fashion, blue jeans have been an undisputed closet staple for as long as anyone can recall. Not to mention, they can be paired with almost anything. For her, it’s the same with Classic Blue. She’s excited to see the color used as a neutral and a base in home decor in the same way as blue jeans have been employed in fashion.

How She Used The Color: Jessi envisioned this living space that’s anchored by the blue but still feels perfectly crisp, clean-lined, and simple with just the right amount of bright impact.

For Jessi, the idea is that Classic Blue is a medium for modern minimalists to explore and experiment with color. The blue in this living area has classic appeal but is neither overwhelming nor too much of a commitment for modern design lovers.

It’s also bold yet calming, and it’s a naturally occurring shade. All of that makes it an easy and relatable accent color that will encourage even the staunchest minimalists to dip their toes into a world of color.

pantone classic blueLook #3: Classic & Captivatingly Cool

Modsy Designer: Logan R.

Why He Loves Classic Blue: The reason is simple for Logan. Classic Blue is more playful and vibrant than your run-of-the-mill navy shades. But it’s also a shade that he thinks anyone can readily incorporate into their space. He’s excited to see what people do with it.

How He Used The Color: Logan sees the blue shade used in a cool contemporary way that involves patterns and shapes. He believes that texture is key to incorporating the shade successfully. He’s thinking slubby fabrics, matte glazed ceramics, tinted glass, and rich velvets that add sophistication. These distinct tactile elements will help keep Classic Blue from leaning into what he describes as “recycling bin blue” territory.

Home Decor Tips from the Set of The Holiday – Are You an Iris or an Amanda?

Writer, director, and producer Nancy Meyers is known and beloved not only for her romantic comedies with strong female leads—but for the beautiful homes in which her characters live. From the Banks family home in Father of the Bride, to Erica Barry’s home in Something’s Gotta Give, along with so many others, America has long been obsessed with Meyers’ impeccable style and ability to create movie homes that are basically as important as the cast. Her spaces always have that special something that instantly makes us want to move in!

But this time of year, we’re particularly obsessed with her movie, The Holiday, which also happens to be one of our all-time favorite Meyers films. The film has two amazing females leads—Cameron Diaz as Amanda and Kate Winslet as Iris. But the real showstoppers of this film are their homes—Iris’ cottage in England and Amanda’s mansion in LA.

Love the decor and style in The Holiday as much as we do? Bring some of it into your own home! Our stylists broke down the elements of each leading lady’s style so you can figure out if you’re an Iris or an Amanda, and bring some of their iconic style to life in your own!

The Holiday Amanda's houseAmanda’s LA Mansion

The Style

Cameron Diaz’s character, Amanda, works in the film industry in LA, and her Spanish-style mansion is quite the showstopper. Flooded with natural light, the interior has a minimal, contemporary style, and we’d describe her taste as a modern spin on classic design. The furniture features classic shapes and streamlined forms; no frills here! It’s an elevated version of California cool—and we are here for it.

Shop Amanda's Style

the holiday styleThe Key Elements

For a modern-but-classic home, you want to keep the color palette more neutral. But it’s not all bright whites here. We love the contrast in Amanda’s home, where dark wood tones against light upholstery add depth to the space. Don’t forget the pops of burgundy and green that she (or more likely her interior decorator) has scattered throughout the house.

The house is also full of decorative elements and plants, but they’re chosen and styled in a way that feels polished and curated, never cluttered. Ultimately, this home is minimal but with some of those personalized items, along with a mix of natural textures, it still feels cozy and comfortable.

This Look Is For You If…

You like a contemporary style with classic underpinnings. Or if you want a space that looks as zen as you want to feel! This style embodies a sense of LA executive luxury, along with those serene southern California vibes.

The Holiday Iris' houseIris’ Rosehill Cottage

The Style

Kate Winslet’s character, Iris, is a journalist in London who lives in a little cottage in Surrey. From the outside, this quaint, rustic cottage is dreamy and it gets even better when you go inside. The small space is eclectic and cozy—pretty much the opposite of Amanda’s style and her expansive home. It’s the type of space that you want to curl up with a book and a steaming cup of tea. (Or pour some wine and belt out the lyrics to Mr. Brightside.)

Shop Iris' Style

The Key Elements

Iris’ eclectic and cozy cottage style involves a lot of patterns and textures. Think: granny florals (the good kind), paisley, plaid, and even ruffles. Really, any cozy pattern with a sense of nostalgia will do. For furniture, opt for classic styles, like skirted or slipcovered sofas, rolled arms, and tufted ottomans—all with some sort of applied ornamentation.

To compliment the classic patterns and textures in this style, we love a color palette of yellows and blues, with pops of red. It creates a look that’s both cheery and cozy. When decorating in this style, you can take a “more is more” approach. Cover surfaces in decorative objects that tell a story, along with plenty of books. These could be decorative objects you’ve collected on your travels, found at antique stores, or even hand-me-downs from your grandmother!

the holiday interior designThis Look Is For You If…

You like cozy spaces that are full of personal touches. This is not a style for minimalists, because there’s a lot going on. But if you love getting cozy, surrounded by objects and books that you love, this look is for you!

2010s Mid-Century Modern Trend

5 Trends That Defined the 2010’s… Where are they now?

2010s trendsAt the end of the year, we always take time to explore the trends on the horizon for next 365 days. But, as we round out a decade, we’re also taking a look back at some of the most-popular trends of the 2010s. Which stuck around, which evolved, and which do we hope we never see again? We asked our VP of Style, Alessandra Wood what the most decade-defining 2010s trends were and how they’ll evolve in the future.

From Mid-Century Modern to mason jars, take a scroll down memory lane and revisit some of the most memorable trends of the 2010s!

Mid-Century Modern

The world’s obsession with Mid-Century Modern defined so much of the 2010s. During this decade Ray and Charles Eames were reborn as a household name, alongside other great designers of the era.

We saw the Mad Men obsession trickle into furniture designs in nearly every top retailer in some way. Whether through acorn finishes and tapered legs, or iconic revivals, Mid-Century Modern style design was everywhere—even Restoration Hardware introduced Milo Baughman chairs into their RH Modern line.

And if you look beyond the world of design, popular culture was also obsessed with this time period. Shows like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel were a huge hit, and put Mid-Century Modern trend front and center.

farmhouse style 2010s trendModern Farmhouse Style

Chip and Jo’s Fixer Upper farmhouse style was another look that made a mark on the 2010 trends landscape. All over HGTV, Target, and Living Spaces, the duo introduced farmhouse styling to people everywhere.

Curiously, real estate reports noted that homes with a farmhouse sink commanded a higher selling price than those without. All in all, the style re-introduced us to cozy, warm spaces that are welcoming and inviting for friends and family.

millennial pink 2010s trendMillennial Pink

This hot color seemed to be everywhere in the late 2010s. Pantone even officially solidified its place in history as one of the colors of the year in 2016 and cult beauty brand, Glossier, even dubbed it as their official color.

In the realm of home design, millennial pink got its moment in the spotlight in furniture and decor alike. Blush sofas were at one point considered the “it” statement piece and we’re still seeing the color in accent furniture and decor.

And it doesn’t seem like the design world is quite over millennial pink. Although, today it seems to have grown up a bit and reemerged as a dusty rose.

chevron trendChevron

Sparked by a 2011 collaboration between Missoni and Target, chevron emerged onto the design scene as the must-have pattern. Everything, it seemed, would feel more fun and vibrant in the classic zig-zag pattern, known as chevron.

From rugs to pillows, to wallpaper, chevron dominated patterns in home design. DIYers painted rooms and furniture with chevron stripes. An early star in the Pinterest scene, this hot geometric pattern’s popularity eventually petered out in the mid-2010s.

mason jars trendMason jars

The craft craze of the 2010s brought Mason Jars front and center to the world of home decor. After an initial debut in the wedding industry, crafters soon began to introduce Mason Jars into every aspect of the home. From rustic drinking glasses, to bathroom storage solutions, candle votives, even lighting fixtures, we saw mason jars everywhere.

Happy National Gingerbread House Day: Here’s What a Gingerbread House Would Look Like in Real Life

gingerbread houseThe holiday spirit has taken over at Modsy and with National Gingerbread House Day (yes, that’s a real holiday) right around the corner on December 12th, we knew we had to do something special. How festive would it be to live inside one of those frosted, gum-drop and candy-cane constructed homes? (Assuming the roof doesn’t cave in like ours always seem to do in real life).

Leave it to us. We created the gingerbread house of our interior design dreams. While the walls might be cookie and crumbly, the furniture inside is built to last. Oh yeah, you can actually shop all of these pieces IRL, in case you want to live in a sugary wonderland all year round.

gingerbread house

For anyone looking to live in the Modsy gingerbread house, look for a style that is whimsical and fun. We chose pieces that use the classic colors of gingerbread candy and evoke the textures of the yummy space. The vibe is playful and bright, but not too cheesy—gingerbread people have a sense of style, after all. We knew that the space needed to feel fun, but also wanted it to be achievable and even hit a specific style profile. Many of the pieces are actually named after pieces of candy, which made them feel right at home in this space.

gingerbread house

We envision a cool and trendy gingerbread family living here. They definitely march to the beat of their own drum and aren’t interested in any of those “cookie cutter styles” seen on TV (pun very much intended). The person (gingerbread or otherwise) who lives here likely loves a good vintage or retro piece, especially anything Mid-Century Modern. They aren’t afraid of bold colors and really want to make their space pop. Each piece tells a story; they’re sculptural and vibrant.

gingerbread house

Our favorite pieces in the gingerbread house are The George Nelson Marshmallow sofa which anchors the design and really inspired the overall look and color palette for the space. A few other Nelson pieces such as the clock and light fixtures add to the sophisticated whimsy of the design.

The CB2 Jellybean coffee table has the perfect shape and texture (and name!), along with the Hive side tables and the frothy Miles Shag rug which makes us think of the white icing so common on gingerbread houses. The green and purple poufs are a nod to gumdrops—the classic gingerbread decorating candy.

pantone color of the year

A Decade of Color: Looking Back at Every Pantone Color from the 2010s

pantone color of the yearEvery year since 2000, Pantone has been the defacto color authority of the design world. Their Color of the Year sets the tone (and trends) for the next 12 months ahead. But it wasn’t until the 2010s that Pantone’s Color of the Year started making waves and influencing trends.

Often linked to the cultural zeitgeist of the times, Pantone’s color experts comb the world for inspiration, looking everywhere from the entertainment industry to travel trends to even socio-economic conditions to determine the hue for the following year. Now, it’s a much-anticipated forecast each December that impacts trends in home decor, fashion, beauty, and more.

As they gear up to announce their 2020 color (also their 20th anniversary), we’re taking a look back at some of our favorite Pantone colors over the past ten years—many of which were inspired by the natural world, a prominent theme across home decor during this decade.

pantone colors of the yearCelebrate the wrap of the 2010s with us on a fun and colorful ride down the Pantone memory lane as we prepare to embrace the color that will kick off a new decade.

2010: Turquoise

The Color DNA: A blend of the serene qualities of blue with the invigorating nature of green.

The Backstory: This uplifting hue was a much-needed dose of calm at the time. The world was still recovering from the financial crisis of 2008 and Pantone’s experts explained that they wanted to energize people and give them a feeling of relaxation and escape through this hue.

What We Love About It: The tropical flavor. The sense of escape. That feeling of being on vacation.

Pantone color of the year2011: Honeysuckle

The Color DNA: Not quite fuchsia but a red-hued shade of pink.

The Backstory: Honeysuckle was also touted as a color for every day that’s anything but “everyday.” It was courageous, confident, and charismatic.

Bright and bold were the driving philosophies behind this hue, which came at a time when the experts felt the world needed a brave new color for a brave new world. (For context, Instagram was barely a year old!)

What We Love About It: It reminds us of summer. It’s a happy mood-booster and is joyfully optimistic.

2012: Tangerine Tango

The Color DNA: An energetic orange-red that shakes things up.

The Backstory: The experts at Pantone sensed a universal lull in 2012 and thought that the world needed waking up. They devised this bright, vibrant shade to be the alarm clock for us to collectively rise and shine.

What We Love About It: The positively charged sunrise and sunset vibes.

Pantone color of the year2013: Emerald

The Color DNA: A tamer take of the tried-and-true jewel tone.

The Backstory: Things got a bit more mellow in 2013, and it was a back to classics kind of year. The experts settled on emerald, which was meant to “enhance our sense of well-being, balance, and harmony.” This was an emerald that wasn’t overly aggressive or loud, but just as lush, luminous, and luxurious.

What We Love About It: The timeless elegance. The casual sophistication. The classic feels.

2014: Radiant Orchid

The Color DNA: The best of purple, fuchsia, and pink.

The Backstory: This was a year for big ideas all over, and Pantone’s experts chose this hue for its inspiring, creative energy. They believed that the color would spark confidence and radiate joy, love, and health.

What We Love About It: It’s perfectly chic, beautifully nuanced, and boldly invigorating.

2015: Marsala

The Color DNA: A rich, earthy shade of wine red that feels full-bodied and grounded.

The Backstory: The earthiest hue we saw this decade, Pantone experts chose Marsala in 2015 as they say it’s a color that “enriches our minds, bodies, and souls.”

They also called attention to its versatility in home decor. Looking back, we have to agree that it was a color that perfectly warmed the home, and we’re actually seeing a renewed interest in these rich, earthy hues as a trend for 2020 and beyond.

What We Love About It: The soulfulness. The deep-rooted comfort. The bold coziness.

2016: Rose Quartz & Serenity

The Color DNA: Rose Quartz is a warm, cheery shade that feels close to the much-crazed millennial pink. Serenity is a soft, almost lavender-tinted shade of light blue.

The Backstory: For the first time, Pantone selected two shades to be the colors of the year in 2016. Rose Quartz and Serenity provided a softer, subtler contrast to the bolder colors that had come before.

Rose Quartz was said to convey a sense of compassion and composure while Serenity brought to mind weightlessness and airiness that were reminiscent of the sky. Together the colors were meant to speak to a larger cultural craving for comfort and the increased blurring of gender lines.

What We Love About It: Rose Quartz’s gentle beauty. Serenity’s inspiring ease. Their blended reimagining of blue and pink.

Pantone color of the year2017: Greenery

The Color DNA: A fresh, leafy, matcha-hyped green.

The Backstory: After a slight hiatus, it was back to Mother Nature in 2017. Greenery was meant to be refreshing and revitalizing and all about new beginnings. It was a clear desire to reconnect with nature and potentially a reaction to our ever-more technologically-dependent world.

What We Love About It: It signals spring. It feels deliciously fresh. It soothes our restlessness.

2018: Ultra Violet

The Color DNA: A dramatic, deeply provocative, and electric shade of purple.

The Backstory: Word around the Modsy office was “Prince Purple” when the color was announced. And fittingly so as the experts pointed out that the color was meant to be all about “originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us towards the future.”

What We Love About It: The cosmic connotation. The regal reference. The Prince association.

2019: Living Coral

The Color DNA: A peachy and electric pink.

The Backstory: For the past year, Living Coral has been the prominent color with clear ties to the beauty of our natural world. It hints at the warming reality that is the fragility of our oceans, where coral reefs are dying.

Pantone described the color as animating and life-affirming, and it’s perhaps a wake-up call, once again, for all of us to do better and turn our sights away from our technology-driven lives and toward the world around us.

What We Love About It: The passionate reference to our oceans. The jubilance of the color. The call to action it inspires in us.

And For 2020…

We’ll have to wait and see what’s in store for next year’s big color trend. But our guess is a shade that’s inspired by the natural world and our collective desire for well-being and more self-care.

Not to mention the vibrant green rug sets a beautiful foundation that also adds a subtle pop of color. It’s no wonder this is one of the best bedrooms of 2019!

You Heard It Here First! These 5 Decor Trends Will Be Huge in 2020

2020 home decor trendsIt’s almost a wrap on 2019! Not only are we saying goodbye to the year but we’re bidding adieu to an entire decade. And with the start of a new trip around the sun means we get to welcome in a whole new host of 2020 home decor trends.

If you’re wondering what’s going to be big in 2020 (and what’s going to be out), we’ve got your covered. Keep reading for a peek into the future and get the scoop on 5 home decor trends we predict will be everywhere.

1. Ceiling Treatments

Yes, for 2020 we’re turning our design attention to the fifth wall, aka ceilings! Keep an eye out (or up) for painted, wallpapered, and even fabric tented ceiling designs. This bold design move was actually a piece de resistance at Napoleon’s Château de Malmaison in France, and now we’re seeing it come back into vogue. And while we probably won’t see this trend make its way into everyday homes, you’ll start to spy it in the pages of editorial magazines like Architectural Digest and Elle Decor.

2. Sculptural Furniture and Decor

Clutter is out, which means the design world is looking for ways to incorporate decoration into furniture. We’re seeing this desire show up in two key places—ornamented and sculptural furniture and decor pieces.

2020 decor trends3. Surface Treatments

What comes after cane and rattan? Pieces with ribbed or channeled surfaces are a major 2020 decor trend to watch. We’re thinking of these surface treatments as the next rev post 2019’s obsession with natural textures. Not to mention, these pieces have an 80’s Deco vibe that gives them a lovely dose of nostalgia, and who can say no to that?

4. Industrial Lighting

Lighting with an industrial minimal vibe is another trend we’re seeing as a big player of 2020. Lighting is becoming incredibly sculptural mixing stone and black metal to create beautiful forms and shapes, because why not have both form and function together in one piece.

2020 home decor trends5. Sustainability at Home

People are starting to think more and more about the environmental impact of home design. In addition to smart features and appliances that regulate energy usage, we’re also seeing a desire among our customers to shop sustainably. We’re seeing a rise in customers asking us about the products they are buying like how it’s made and where it comes from. People are choosing to invest in quality pieces they can keep for years to come!

This Victor Accent Chair in Mustard velvet has an extra luxe feel. The black metal legs are capped in gold for a posh vibe. It has a dramatic, deep-seated form for easy lounging that also offers plenty of modern refinement and sophisticated design.

We love this abstract wall art that uses playful geometry and color to make a bold statement. The swatch of turmeric is the star of the show, but it’s complemented by warm, cheery colors and some negative space that makes everything pop. This type of piece looks great hung over a fireplace and is great for adding a splash of turmeric without overpowering the whole space.
