Modern Home Decorating Tips

Hello guys, today I want to give you some basic tips for your home decoration, I hope you enjoy them

If you have chosen modern as the style of your home, you are in good company. From 1933 to 1965, designers such as Charles and Ray Eames, Marcel Breuer and George Nelson created some of the iconic mid-century modern designs that are so popular today. You can have a modern decor as well, if you follow these tips.



The Basics

The modern design is functional in your heart. Furniture has clean lines, everything has a purpose and there is not much fuss. Interesting forms and luxury materials are the order of the day. Above all, make it simple.

How to start

Start with clear exit space. Paint the walls in neutral tones, or white or black, for a true modern feel. Monochrome defines the era. For the floor, choose a natural material such as wood or bamboo. Open floor plans and giant windows were also common in modern design, so if you have been thinking about knocking down some walls, this is a good excuse to do so.



Find your Furniture

Since modern design does not rely heavily on accessories, put more effort into finding the perfect pieces of furniture. Sources of mid-century modern sofas, chairs and tables are plentiful. Antique stores and thrift stores are a good place to start, as they are online markets like Craigslist and eBay. If you are looking for new pieces, Design Within Reach offers reproductions of the classics, and retailers such as West Elm and EQ3 specialize in modern design. If you are on a budget, try IKEA.



Do not customize your design, which accentuate. Hang up some well-chosen pieces of art, find an iconic mid-century modern clock like George Nelson’s ball clock or Starburst design. Add some funky lamps to finish it off. Whatever you do, do not overdo it. Choose with care and prudence for a certain modern touch.

I hope you enjoyed this little guide and take advantage of it. Remember, the first step of decoration is to make sure you will feel comfortable with it.
