We usually see a modern decor to have light and soft colours, clean and sleek lines. However, this year we are seeing a shift to a more warm and cosy modern look, it is no longer seen as sleek and simple. Through the use of more dark accent colour and natural materials it is steering towards a warmer and homely finish. We present you: the new Modern Clean style!
Black is the new white
Darker and warmer accent colours are becoming the focal point in a more modern living room decor. Black is not a colour you would think to add to your decor, however this is becoming an emerging trend in a modern living style. We´re not saying a completely black interior is in trend as this is a bit too much, but include black accents and accessories into your kitchen and bathroom decor. For a more homely feeling an accented wall is ideal or include home accessories such as checkered plaid, combination of dark and light colours are on trend this year.
Combining modern with nature
Modern decor is set to become more cosy and intimate this year, as more and more of natural materials such as rattan, wood and leather are being used in both furnishing and accessories. The use of these materials are still within the modern decor of simplicity but now come in more colour and styles. Furniture use in a modern decor still remains the same of being sleek and fine, however rich upholstery fabrics such as velour and velvet are on trend. Floor to ceiling cabinets as well as full wall shelves are still in to give a discrete yet effective finish to the overall room.
A modern upgrade
You will find all the above can also be found in modern lighting such as wood or rattan lamps finished in black. These types of lamps add wamth and cosiness to your decor! Cosy and intimate lighting is vital in a modern inspired decor this year, they create an atmospheric lighting for a warmer effect against a white or beige wall.
