The fun part about design is that everyone has a style favorite, and often times individuals have to blend their style with their spouse or roommates to create a modern dining room they all love and enjoy.
Today I've created two different boards showcasing varying styles.
Arch Modern White 47-Inch-W Console Table / Kesha Antique Silver with Beveled Glass Round Wall Mirror / HomeBelle 35-Inch-H Set of 2 Transparent Chairs / Possini Chrome 16 1/4-Inch-H Semi Flushmount Ceiling Light
The first one above is very modern, featuring a funky chandelier, sleek console table, and ghost chairs. If you prefer, an elegant drum shade chandelier design would be a great alternative!
The second look below is a mix of rustic, industrial and modern, featuring the rectangular wood table, contemporary chairs, a simple drum pendant and a textured white mirror.

We want to know what look your eye favors! Do you lean toward heavily modern spaces and furniture, or do you like to mix your styles like the second look?

I don’t consider myself a glamorous girl, but every now and then some glam comes out and I love it! My favorite way to dress up a room with serious glamour style is by using black and gold.
This combination is dark, bright, chic and fun all at the same time! This room captures what I am talking about pretty well.
The black and gold accents all over the room make it look modern, but classic and oh, glamorous. We can’t forget that! It’s really easy to find black and gold items in stores these days. The trick is to put these together and watch what happens to your space.
1. Corbett Bangle Gold Tone 12-Inch-W Pendant 2. Anson Gold Leaf with Black 15-Inch-W Side Table 3. Possini Gold Leaf with Black Shade Obelisk Table Lamp
Let’s put some of these amazing and chic items to use in a room, shall we?
First this side table. I think I need this side table! It’s beautiful and it incorporates the black and gold together perfectly. It would look great in any space, even if you aren’t planning on making the whole room gold and black. The table might be enough.
But why stop there? This golden pendant light would be so beautiful hanging above an entry way, don’t you think?
Now for this table lamp. Man oh man do I love this lamp! The black and gold go perfectly together. So lovely. I really think I can’t do without it. Unique living room table lamps are a great way to achieve any style you're going for.
If you are thinking of going the glamorous gold and black route, I suggest you try it. You’ll love it!

Whether you're a sports aficionado or not, you probably know that the Winter Olympics begins this week. Top athletes will be competing for Gold in Sochi, Russia. Well, we love sports here in the ESL offices but we love home design more.
Which is why we want to show you how to win gold with your home design since, like us, you probably lack the skills to win Olympic gold.
Glitz Filbert Espresso 33-Inch-H Arm Chair / Besa Pogo Collection Gold Pendant
For starters.... Set the mood with gold upholstery on a beautiful modern piece of furniture and then highlight it with a gold pendant, preferably in the shape of an Olympic ring.
Eleganza Starburst Gold Leaf 22-Inch-H Wall Mirror / Regina-Andrew Gilded 49" Golden Sconce
We couldn't help but select this gold pendant that resembles the Olympic flame! And no room should go without a gold starburst mirror in our opinion! Modern mirrors with luxury styling are a great way to bring home the gold...
Zena Gold Leaf 72-Inch-H Arteriors Home Room Screen / Worchester Gold 33 1/2-Inch-H Arteriors Home Console Table
Since we've already included a bold mirror, gold-upholstered chair and a flaming hot wall sconce, let's keep things minimal with the gold furniture. This gold "Olympic ring" screen will add vertical design to the space without being too heavy. The gold-framed console is a great place to add some color on the shelves or just simple gold and white accessories that will compliment the room.
Westoria Brass 7 3/4-Inch-H Bulova Tabletop Clock / Dakota Gold and Black Glass 20-Inch-H End Table
Lastly, you need a distinctive accent table to pair with your gold chair and this gold clock is a beautiful accessory to top off this gold home design.
What do you think?

February is just around the corner... Are you looking for a romantic getaway this Valentine's Day? Nestled along Mexico's Riviera Nayarit, Imanta Resort is a modern design lover's paradise.
This lush region boasts an average temperature of 71 degrees and almost no precipitation in February, making it the perfect romantic retreat. Secluded, stylish and beautifully situated along the Pacific coast, the quiet Imanta Resort is exactly what the love doctor ordered.
Patios are all about the views, while guest rooms are all about relaxing.
Imanta's bathrooms in particular caught our eye. We love bathrooms that combine open spaces, ample light, and functionality, such as a combination of larger bathroom mirrors with clean lines and smaller makeup mirrors to cover all the gritty details.
Imanta's allure is its simplicity, in which the sum is greater than the parts. Comfortable, well-placed items in a perfect setting.
Aptations Chrome Double Arm Vanity Wall Mirror, Natural Oil Ridge Solid Hardwood Bar Table, Medina Satin Steel Metal Gooseneck Desk Lamp, Zuo Castle Peak Silver Outdoor Lounge Chair
Seriously, with a place like Imanta, is there anything more you can ask from a romantic getaway? Well, since you asked, we'll need room service. A bottle of your best chardonnay, please.

When square footage is an issue, every inch counts, and one chic way to save space in your modern bedroom is to use wall lights instead of table lamps beside the bed.
Choose wall lights with sophisticated style over table lamps to keep your room stylish and lots more functional!
1. I love the way the accordion lamp can be stretched to reach the bed for reading and then stowed away in the daytime (top image). Get the look with the Robert Abbey Bruno Bronze Scissor Arm Pharmacy Wall Light (link below). This is also a great option if you're really short on space and your bed is nestled in a corner.

2. Mounted high above the bed, these brass pharmacy wall lamps bring a little understated vintage-chic to the palette of this cottage bedroom. Get the look with the House of Troy Addison Brass 8-Inch-W Pharmacy Wall Lamp (link below).

3. Mix things up! Mount different wall lamps on either side of the bed, or use one wall sconce and one table lamp-- if they have something in common (either they are the same color and different shapes, or vice-versa) then they will add visual interest without looking chaotic.
Try the Chelsea Textured Black with Glass Sonneman Edison Sconce paired with the P3 Bronze 6 1/2-Inch-H George Kovacs Swing Arm Wall Lamp (links below).

4. A suspension wall lamp can pack a real visual punch when brought into a bedside context--I've got a serious crush on the Sonneman Perch Modern Black Brass Metal Plug-In Wall Lamp.

Which look is your favorite?
