Over the last few years, there has been a big push towards retro and vintage fashion and modern flair when it comes to interior decor. It’s given people the chance to really enjoy some shabby chic designs and throwback decorations, but it also means that a lot of homes are starting to look very similar. Let’s face it, no one wants a house that looks exactly like every other home on the block!
So what can you do? Well it’s time to leave the vintage fashions in the past again and start to look ahead. Why not think about bringing a more modern touch to your home. The world is becoming more and more advanced, and it’s easy to feel like we’re finally living the future that we all imagined the twenty-first century would bring. So let’s start bringing that feeling into our home. Here are a few unique and forward thinking home design ideas to make you say “C’est Très Moderne!”
Modern Flair: Glass
Nothing screams modern design like clean, crisp glass interiors. There are plenty of different ways that you can incorporate glass into your home design, whether it’s decorations, tables or extra large windows. Not only do glass designs create a wonderfully modern aesthetic but they also bring in huge amounts of light to help your home feel more spacious and exciting.
Modern Flair: Lights
The trend for years has been lots of lamps dotted around to give your home that bohemian feeling. The problem with that is, unless you’ve got the perfect house for it, it can leave your home feeling dark, dingy and a little cramped. Why not try something a bit more innovative.
Rather than using lamps as decorations, why not make your existing furniture pop out that much more. Why not try LED tape for decorating your home? That way your bookcases, shelves, and furniture can all have their own distinct glow, keeping your home well lit without sacrificing the crisp, clean lines that every modern home needs.
The shabby chic homes that have been so fashionable until now have been all about looking as though things were just thrown around at random. Why not go in the complete opposite direction of that and create a very deliberate sense of geometry in your home. With careful use of symmetry and lines, you can make your home feel incredibly precise and perfectly on trend.
Rather than sticking with the muted pastel of the past, why not go for some modern flair with rich, dynamic colors for your walls. Colors like deep blue and vibrant orange work especially well when contrasted against clean white walls in other areas of the home.
By choosing a bold color and using it for a single feature wall you draw the eye in a very striking way and help to bring a dynamic sense of life and energy into your home. Just make sure that the color that you use don’t suck any of the light from the room. The key is to maintain a healthy balance between natural light and bold design.
