So, if the Euro Style Lighting blogging team were to go on a retreat anywhere... This is where we'd go! But, since we're not, and we couldn't make it to France to stay in this modern cabin even if we did have a blogger retreat, we'll just dream. Let's start with dark modern seating.

The hallway is a clear example of the linear architecture that runs through the house. Natural, light wood finishes pair nicely with the dark floors, walls and furniture.
Clean white walls and natural wood panels give this bedroom space a modern, clean vibe. There's no doubt this bedroom would win the minimally modern prize. Simple white sconces can help you achieve this look in your bedroom.
Let's face it, no modern cabin would be complete without a space to warm up, right? Check out this fabulous jacuzzi room.
There's lots of ways to achieve this cozy, modern look in your own home. Rather than be sad we don't live here, we just get very inspired to achieve the look. We hope this home inspires you too...

+If you're having a dinner party this weekend, head over to Design For Mankind, where Erin features tablescapes like you've never seen before.
+The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County is hosting an "Urban Hike". It's led by the landscape architecture firm's project manager. The architect of the 3.5 acre gardens aims to give hikers a deeper understanding of how creative design can facilitate the museum's philosophy.
+If you like keeping up with interior design trends, then you know High Point Market just happened in North Carolina. Cassandra Lavalle, style-spotter and design blogger, did a little recap of the event over on her blog Coco + Kelley.
+Toronto International Art Fair opens tonight, benefiting the Art Gallery of Ontario. Dealers from all over the world will be selling contemporary art there.
The smell of wood burning fireplaces is filling the air in neighborhoods across the country. It's such a comforting smell that instantly makes any space feel cozy. Even these minimal modern interiors feel cozy when there's a wood burning fireplace involved.
Modern design elements mix with the rustic brick wood burning fireplace(above) to bring an eclectic feel into the space. Low modern seating creates a very intimate feel with the low fireplace.
Zuo Carnival Black Modular Sleeper Sofa
The gorgeous windows bring the outdoors in, as if you're perched up in a beautiful treehouse. Modern accent chairs that can be easily moved are perfect in this space because it allows you to adjust to the heat with ease!
Zuo Draper Black Lounge Chair
White walls and concrete floors are at one with nature in this organic modern setting. Wood logs arranged perfectly under your fireplace is not only practical, but makes such an artistic statement for design lovers. As you know, we would recommend dropping down a gorgeous organic modern chandelier to fully complete this space!
Hope you're enjoying the smells of the season and staying cozy!

Happy Halloween! We don't usually post about weddings, but when there's cool Gothic architecture involved we do. It might not be in line with our typicaly modern architecture obsession, but we appreciate all great design. This bridal shoot is the stunning work of photographer Shelly Mantovani, inspired by the Tim Burton film ‘Dark shadows’. I'm sure there are many people out there getting married on today, and if you're not you can always dress up and pretend you are!
Take a look at some gorgeous inspiration for a dark wedding or just some really cool Gothic architecture...
This red is purely radiant! Pops of red in your wardrobe or home decor will always bring energy to your style!
The use of pinks and soft pastels creates such a romantic energy in a dark way. Speaking of dark, the one thing this space is missing is some black pendants or chandeliers, right?!
Be safe this Halloween!

Welcome to the latest series, Outfit to Interior! In each post we'll be exploring the intersection of fashion and design, and boy-oh-boy it's a big place the navigate. Each inevitably draws inspiration and influence from the other. So let's take a look at translating this Valentino silk-crepe jumpsuit with modern lines and just the right amount of skin into an interior design project. The elegant silhouette and keyhole back give us plenty to work with.
What we're looking for first and foremost in a piece is a modern, sleek, and sexy vibe. Clean lines and metals with just the tiniest hint of surprise. Some interior designers are adamantly against ceiling fans, but I'm of the opinion that so long as it's fresh and fits the space then go for it! I love the feeling of a cool breeze and can't imagine life without them in my home. The Quorum Dragonfly Collection's Nickel Finish Ceiling Fan fits all of those requirements. The streamlined light grey blades offer up a little something different in the looks department, can't you just imagine our Valentino lady lounging about underneath?
A pair of Black Linen Cylinder Shade Antique Brass Swing Arm lamps would be a great match for our girl's bedroom or reading nook. The eleven-inch high black linen shades give these classic beauties just the modern unexpected touch we're looking for. I think our gal would place the Glitz Crystal Contemporary Table Lamp somewhere a little unexpected, like on a table at the end of a hallway or on the kitchen countertop. The bright chrome finish and sparkling inlaid crystals would brighten up any dark corner.
Throwing an impromptu dinner party is the hallmark of any modern woman, which means a great table with a great light fixture as the focal point. Check out the Possini Euro Pendant with White Frosted Concentric Shades. The frosted inner glass, brushed nickel finish, and white fabric all play together perfectly to create a piece that's both sleek and classic.
I'm betting her signature dish is something deceptively simple and delicious, like Chicken Tika Misala or Spaghetti Bolognese. And while she's in the kitchen cooking up such tasty dishes, she's probably doing all of her prep work right under a trio of Atmosphere Possini Euro Pendant Lights. I love the way their modern aluminum finish is "sliced like fruit" to let all of that glorious light shine through, quite the show-stopper!
This Contemporary Frameless Round Mirror measures nearly three feet across! If that doesn't make a modern statement, I'm not sure what does. I think it would look at home in our girl's entryway or hanging over the fireplace. And she could always change it up by placing it over the credenza or behind the couch. Endless possibilities, we love that in a piece!
Last but not least, our modern woman needs somewhere top perch while entertaining or surfing her favorite shops. A pair of Zuo Modern Wendover Steel Dining Chairs are just the ticket. The sleek silhouette and leaf-like back would be equally at place in the dining room or behind a desk.
