Part of the excitement in buying a new home is being able to decorate it the way that you want it. There are many different design styles and colors to choose from when you are starting with a blank slate. More and more home buyers are decorating to achieve a modern design look. If you need help achieving a modern theme in your new townhouse, try these easy modern design tips.
Use red or another bold color. You can tone it down and even it out with pops of white and gray. Using white or gray in a coffee table, fire place, and wall décor will balance out a bold color.
There are many different popular and fun patterns to use in your modern design; florals, chevrons, trellis, and ikat patterns are all in style. You can mix these patterns, but be sure to stick to a specific color theme. You can also use solid colors on bigger pieces in the room, such as a sofa or duvet, to help anchor the space.
Steer Clear of Bulky Furniture
Bulky and large furniture may have been popular in the past, but these days light and airy is the trend. Bulky furniture can weigh a room down and make it seem smaller than it is. To open up a space, utilize furniture that incorporates open weaves or Lucite. Also, keeping the walls and windows open will prevent a modern space from feeling cramped.
Don’t be Afraid of Whites
All white spaces are popular in modern design. However, to keep the room from feeling too sterile, use different textures. A linen sofa, a shaggy rug, or a crochet throw can all help add depth and texture to a white on white room.
Create a Reading Nook
Take a corner of your living room and create a quiet reading nook. Utilize an oversized or comfy chair and place a bookshelf in the vicinity. Placing your reading nook near a window can help create ambiance and extra natural light.
Start with a neutral canvas; the furniture and color on the walls. Each season or each year you can add different colors with various décor pieces. This keeps your look fresh, yet helps maintain a budget.
Don’t be afraid to incorporate silver into your room design. Silver on a mirror, around a fireplace, or even on the legs of a coffee table can help add sophistication to any room.
