Interior design and branding are a beautiful combination that tell visual stories and create a mood. This Finnish, modern restaurant design, Sis Deli + Cafe does so with bold black and white interior design and packaging. Although this isn't a new restaurant, this sibling design team Muotohiomo, did such an amazing job that it stills seems as fresh today as it did when it opened in 2009.
These black gingham bags make a statement all on their own, but when mixed with the white subway tiles and the black and white menu board you've got a perfected balance!
The simplicity of the black counter grounds element into the space. Modern black barstools stand proudly in any interior. The design concept is a very simple look with special attention paid to every detail. Possibly, a modern black pendant light over the counter would have been a great accent and possibly the only thing missing. But then again, we love lighting!
What do you think? Light or No LIght?

Even these black and white gingham cups are perfect. So perfect you wouldn't want to throw them away...
From the tile, to the packaging, to the tray, to the silverware you've got yourself a beautifully designed and branded restaurant that is sure to create a lasting impression. It's thoughtful, simple, and lasting.
And I think this says it just right, "The visual image is a kind of tripwire for the emotions." - Diane Ackerman

The challenge: Renovating an old Spanish barn into a modern home with rustic design style.
The outcome: Success!
Large barn doors provide extra large windows for every room.
The modern interior is a stark contrast to the exterior, making it the perfect pair. Modern dining tables are always a good statement piece.

This loft-style living room is full of open space and minimally furnished, making it clean and modern. Selecting a few pieces of your favorite modern furniture without overdoing it is key to designing a modern home.
Arteriors Home is definitely a go-to manufacturer when looking for the perfect contemporary decor. Each piece is well designed with a unique twist. The combination of materials, textures, and colors are the reason these products stand out in a crowd. Modern table lamps that are sculptural in form can become a major focal point in the room.

It's always interesting to see how different creatives design their own lives. For example, how fashion stylists dress or which art an artist hangs on their own wall. But, how amazing is it to see the homes that iconic architects designed for themselves?!
The Eames Home "Case Study House No. 8" (above) became the home and workplace of Charles Eames and his partner and wife Ray.
The Frank Gehry Home in Santa Monica, CA (above) was constructed in 1978. The Gehry Residence may appear a bit tired today, but it remains one of Gehry’s more popular projects
Located in Brazil, the home above is "Casa Das Canoas" by Oscar Niemeyer. Originally built in 1953, this modern home remains a major participant in progressive design to this day.
If we could sneak in and furnish the living room of any of these three homes, this is what we imagine:
Possini Euro White Marble Base Arc Floor Lamp, Howard Miller Easton Wall Clock, Zuo Heywood Triple Natural Wood Bench, Zuo Fortress Collection Black Leather Sofa, Zuo Haxby Walnut and Glass Modern Coffee Table, Ikat Print Orange Throw Pillow, Small Glacier Glass White Vase, Smoke Velvet Square Pillow, Laine Wood and Faux Leather Dining Chairs
If you could design your own home, what would it look like? We'd love to help with your modern furniture and lighting!

The end of summer doesn't mean the end of bold vibrant colors, especially when used in modern artwork! The stunning geometric artworks by Francesco Lo Castro can hold their own in any space.
For over a decade, Francesco Lo Castro has been South Florida’s gateway to the national New Contemporary art scene, as both a respected artist and as a curator of exceptional art exhibitions. And it's pretty obvious why!
This piece titled Eulenspiege, 2012 is created with oil, acrylic, silkscreen, spray paint, layered epoxy resin and gold leaf on wood. It's these layers that have you staring for hours!
Choosing just one piece of LoCastro's work would be a challenge! I'm imagining these prints not just as artwork, but on modern decorative pillows, throws, and even bold geometric rugs. Keep your home bright and alive this winter by incorporating bold modern decor. And if you get your hands on a piece of LoCastro's work...I salute you!
