Every night is ‘gallery night’ with our clean and sleek ‘Artfully Modern’ scenario. The design aesthetic perfectly marries elegance with simplicity. This dramatic and clutter free style is also easy to achieve. By following a few key concepts, anyone can transform their residence into a carefully-curated show piece.
An Artfully Modern scenario begins a simple, monochromatic back drop—airy neutrals such as beiges, blacks, gray, cream and whites are the foundation to the palette. Then introduce bold pops of color with furniture, art and accessories to harmonize the space. Your punches of color can now be front and center and act as the focal points of the space.
Form is also paramount to modern design. From strong squares to smooth circles, incorporating abstract and geometric shapes is also a key element to an Artfully Modern space. Think strong angles from squares and rectangles to smooth and elegant curves. Using oversized wall art, decorative sculpture and structural seating will pull this on trend look together. For a stylish dining room add a round glass top table with leather upholstered side chairs. Or situate a pair of lacquer wood side tables along either side of a master bed.
Modern style takes a “less is more” approach. Aim for minimal décor, as the goal is to let your furnishings’ finishes be the star. Shiny metals, organic materials, and luxurious soft textures create a harmonious balance for an exquisite interior.
Glamorous glossy metal finishes act as a reflection of your opulent taste—we love accessorizing our spaces with pieces featuring sleek metal hardware or legs. Materials inspired by industrial production—such as concrete, marble, and wood—bring a hint of nature indoors, enhancing the warmth in your streamlined interior. Natural fabrics add visual interest, providing texture in an otherwise flat space. Leather, linen, and sheepskin are just a few of the textiles you can include to keep your space from looking cold.
Last but not least; lighting. Using the ‘Artfully Modern’ approach start with pieces which are geometric in design, with smooth surfaces and shiny metals. This combination will add impact and pull the design scheme together.. Experiment with chic dome pendants or globe sconces and notice a significant difference in the look and feel of the room!

Our workplace ‘scenarios’ are becoming more and more flexible as employers are offering telecommuting as an option to their job packages. Which means many of us are electing to work from home or remotely on a daily basis. Our ‘home offices’ are becoming a place to retreat, reboot and focus on life’s responsibilities. All too often, we associate office atmospheres with fluorescent lighting and unimaginative furnishings. However, your home workspace doesn’t have to drab or be lackluster. Instead, why not create a functional yet stylish space designed to spark creativity and productivity.
Here are six essential tips for designing your home office, so you can produce an energizing place of respite.
A fabulous home office comes alive with a beautifully and personally curated piece of artwork. Search for paintings, works on paper, photography or even sculpture that accurately represents your distinctive personality and style. Art doesn’t have to be expensive or even match your couch to give your office that personal touch. In addition to big city galleries, you can find inspiring and gorgeous pieces at local flea markets or even street fairs that won’t break the budget . Keep these masterpieces at eye level, so you can effortlessly sneak a quick glance in between projects.
As you decorate your office, don’t forget to fill it with personal touches. Even in corporate offices, personalization is key to happiness and mindfulness—these sentimental items can boost your mood, even if you’re not having the best day. Don’t be afraid to show off your loved ones or pets. It’ll feel good to occasionally gaze at them as you check off the day’s accomplishments.
When it comes to a home office, your comfort shouldn’t be compromised. While you’re not actively working, it’s pleasant to have cozy sitting areas where you can sip your coffee or jot down your thoughts. As you stage these designs, integrate rich textiles, such as a faux fur, into your space to create warmth. Drape a luxurious throw blanket over an armchair, or add glam to a loveseat with faux fur pillows. For the final touch, lay out a soft sheepskin rug.
Revive a tired-looking office by bringing the outdoors in with hints of vibrant greenery. Plants not only look pretty, but they also have a positive impact on your wellbeing. Studies show that bringing plants into offices can improve attention span and overall health, as well as decrease stress. Instead of looking out your office window and wishing you were outside, go ahead and bring the outdoors to you.
Lighting is a key element when designing any space. In addition to ample natural light, a well luminated home office requires supplemental light. A mixture of light fixtures will not only add depth to your space, but also keep you wide awake, especially if you work long hours. For cozy ambient lighting, hang pendant lights around your office—just be sure not to suspend them directly above your computer. If you need extra light near your desk, set a chic task lamp atop your desk or purchase an eye-catching floor lamp.
A comfortable chair and desk are fundamental components of any office space. Select a chair which is ergonomically designed for both form and function. Add two conversational side chairs for guests and visitors so that you can have informal meetings. Now consider your desk. Remember to measure for ample leg room based on the height of your chair. A well functioning desk should have a large workspace and plenty of drawers to hold or hide personal belongings.

For those with a jam-packed schedule, or perhaps horticulturally challenged arranging and keeping flowers blooming and beautiful may prove to be a daunting task. A perfect solution is a stunning faux floral arrangement. Surprisingly, faux florals have evolved from your grandmother’s plastic centerpieces. The new generation of flowers and green plants are truly gorgeous and realistic. Incorporating a faux floral into your space will bring a colorful and nature inspired design element; they’re a tasteful, chic substitute to real flowers and flowering plants. To successfully fool the eye—don’t be afraid to tweak the petals and stems in your arrangement. Most of materials used now are moldable and bendable. After all, no two blooming flowers are perfectly symmetrical!
For the best results, it’s important to be selective with the types of flowers in your faux arrangements.

Curating a space inspired by nature’s scenery is as simple as decorating with seasonal flower varieties. These colorful, fragrant blooms will liven up your space year-round. Spring soirees call for blooming orchids, while exuberant hydrangeas, lilies, and peonies make lasting impressions in the Summer. Gorgeous roses complement the changing hues of fall leaves, and calming eucalyptus contently rests indoors during the cool Winter months.
Flowers act as focal points—energizing the rooms in which you spend most of your time. Consider implementing a marvelous floral arrangement as a centerpiece in your dining room or as an accent piece in a bathroom or entryway.
For an organic touch to your production, try arranging bowls and vases on free-standing furnitures, such as a timeless bar cart or a stylish accent table. We also recommend brightening up your bookshelves with pretty plant assortments. Tailor these vignettes to your taste, and you’re sure to end up with a welcoming space that’s entirely your own.
Spring is in the air! We emerge from our Winter blues ready to open up the windows, drink in the sunshine and clean up our indoor and outdoor living spaces. It presents the perfect opportunity to take inventory of what we want to declutter and what we may want to refresh for the Season. To ensure your living space is ready for springtime festivities and affairs, we suggest five ways you can transition your home’s interior from winter to spring using modern luxury décor.
After a long Winter, there’s something that feels so fresh and rewarding about cleaning and decluttering our home. In fact, according to the American Cleaning Institute®, “91 percent of Americans and 96 percent of millennials engage in spring cleaning, with 76 percent of the population participating each year. Six percent of the population never spring clean.” Begin with a good power wash of your garage and outside patios. Deep clean baseboards, light fixtures and inside of kitchen cabinets. And we can’t forget the refrigerator! Take this opportunity to sort through paperwork and built up clutter. Perhaps even donate mismatched glassware or throw pillows that might need a new home. Now that you have established new order and a refreshed space, you can consider a few decorating projects. Perhaps, paint a bathroom or the front door for a whole new mood.
Incorporating Spring hues into your design strategy, is an easy way to refresh any space. Bring the outdoors in with colors that reflect the beautiful regrowth of our landscape or colors of a blooming garden. Try a cool hyacinth lavender or a soft moss green. For energy, the bright pink of a peony will make a space pop. Nature offers ample choices in which to choose, from the subtle and subdued to the cheerful and bold. We love adding these Spring colors in simple accessories such as a table lamp or a vase. Or swap out throw pillows in a fun new pattern and hue or accessorize an outdoor space with colorful ceramic planters.
Of course, you can’t set a spring-inspired scene without a floral arrangement. No matter the type of greenery you showcase in your home, we believe flowers and plants make a huge difference in how your living space looks and feels. Fill one of your new pastel vases with a lilies, tulips and hydrengas.
In the Winter months, we generally associate with fabrics that are cozy and warm, such as flannels, rich velvets and even faux fur. However, when spring and summer finally arrive we are ready to lighten up with airy cool cottons and breezy linens. Swapping out fabrics can be as simple as replacing the coverings on your throw pillows from dark navies and deep reds to vibrant yellow or coral. For a fun design trend, try one of our decorative patterns such as a tribal ikat or an Asian chinoiserie. Whether you have a budget that allows for a more formal change such as reupholstering a chair or as simple as adding a beautiful cotton throw to a sofa, incorporating a fresh fabric will make your space feel lighter!
In addition to natural woods, think organic materials such as; woven rattans, jute, sea grass and wicker. Layering in these earthen elements will not just add warmth to the space, but also texture to existing smooth surfaces and soft fabrics. A favorite trend on the design scene this Season is the Arteriors wicker pendant collection. Modern and sophisticated, these handwoven rattan pendants look gorgeous in a sunlight salrium, a bohemian office or even an outdoor patio. You'll have an elegant spring sanctuary year around.
