In the mid 2000s the word “modern” in the design industry was normally related to images of stark white walls and eccentric furniture that felt more like it belonged in a space ship than a residential home. As of 2022 however, modern has made its way to the forefront of some of the most breathtaking projects. Modern itself has made it self synonymous with almost every design style you can think of! When remodeling a home with rich history there are several ways you can add modern touches that will elevate the overall design. By looking at classic design motifs in new ways you can elevate touches that otherwise would go overlooked. Contemporary Light fixtures and styling objects in varying offset sizes ads a surprising new overall vision. Designers look to new trending materials to breathe new life into existing spaces. By removing otherwise “loud“ or outdated features like ornate or decorative molding and finishing walls off in a fresh coat of plaster you can emphasize architectural features in a clean new way.
While a complete redesign may not be in line with your space at the moment styling with modern pieces that embody a vintage overall look gives a great modern look to any space. Bellow we have gathered some pieces that will give any space a fresh new feel.
