Colorful and cozy are where it's at for January! And this Apple Green Glass George Kovacs Pendant (below) provides both with its soft curves and splash of green. Ms. Colorful & Cozy would love to hang it in her kitchen for that extra kick on cold winter mornings as she makes her breakfast.
Nearby, you can find the Retro Turquoise Metal Round Wall Clock (below). The art-like piece keeps our girl on time as she dashes out the door to the office or dinner, and provides a sweet pop of color wherever she hangs it – from the kitchen to the bathroom to the hallway!
Ms. Colorful & Cozy loves to spend an evening on the couch under a blanket... catching up on her magazines of course! The Zuo Purse Magazine Rack (below) in transparent red keeps all of her subscriptions organized in style and at arms reach.
The Yelena Polished Steel Lite Source Floor Lamp (above) in yellow glass is perfect to light up a dark living room corner. These short winter days give Ms. Colorful & Cozy an excuse to settle in for a night of television and hot chocolate by the fire under its warm glow.
Piping hot tea and the morning paper play a big role in Ms. Colorful & Cozy's daily routine, and she loves to enjoy both at her kitchen table. This set of four Zuo Modern Scope Dining Chairs (above) in red bring a smile to her face each and every time she sees them, and make her look forward to mornings that much more!
Do modern interior design styles and children mix? Of course they do! Should your modern home revolve around your children? Why not?! Take a look at how Incorporated Architecture + Design Purposefully designed this small New York City residence to accomodate a stylish modern family. This colorful, contemporary home is like an indoor playground and is both fun and functional.
Pops of colorful pendant lighting (above) are used to brighten up the kitchen, contrasting with the neutral aesthetic.
Satin Nickel with Red Shade ET2 Pendant Light
A rustic modern dining room (above) introduces graphic artwork to create a sophisticated feel with a playful edge. Contemporary glass chandeliers are another fun way to add whimsy to any modern interior design style.
A permanent display for your children's artwork is genius! This bold, blue gallery-wall has the ability to transform as new artwork is created. And it's great for watching Saturday morning cartoons of course.
Bright yellow shines like the sun against this cornflower blue. Implement this color punch in your home by adding artful and functional elements such as modern yellow table lamp. Color always takes the edge off and make your space feel more playful.

Who would want a room with four boring walls to play in when you could have your own indoor treehouse? The wallpaper (above) and the adorable treehouse are a great way to bring the outdoors in when playing in the real outdoors may not be an option.
The juxtaposition of the view and the interior elements in this kids room (above) are quite captivating. Now the children can have green grass and bright blue skies 365 days a year even if it's just modern green hardwood floors and the bright blue paint. I'm sure the energy is uplifting throughout the cold and gloomy New York Winters.
Of course, as a parent you need to have a place to retreat and this modern, eclectic master bedroom (above) was designed just for that! The reclaimed wood doors and vintage panels add elements of old-world charm and a peaceful aesthetic.
Painted concrete tile adds a playful detail to this organic modern master bathroom. The use of eclectic modern bathroom lights is always a great way to add character to any bathroom.

If you are lucky enough to have a bar or large kitchen island in your home, then you know what I am talking about... Bar stools are like extra seating that take up almost no space. There are some fantastic and super stylish bar stools out there. I especially love the modern and minimal designs.
Here are three of my favorite bar stools that I would be happy to have in my home.
1. Wire Chrome Finish Bar Chairs: The wire bar stool has such a classic but modern feel. The wire frame makes it seem like it takes up even less space because you can see through it. Genius, right?
2. Black Leatherette Chrome Hitchcock Bar Stools: The clean lined modern and minimal design that makes a subtle statement. I love the shape of the legs and it definitely looks comfortable to me!
3. Black Finish Lola Barstools: This simple cut out frame is perfect and really adds a special something to the space. Love it!

Winter garb brings thoughts of stylish decor consisting of leathers, woods, and natural tones to mind. Ms. Wooly & Warm loves to take full advantage of this time of year with all of the above! This Brushed Nickel Pull Chain Floor Lamp (below) with a bold black striped shade is a great example of a piece that's both classic and modern. The brushed nickel finish gives off a welcome winter glow.
Ms. Wooly & Warm knows she doesn't have to choose between color and style when it comes to the Corbett Vertigo Foyer Pendant Light (above). The warm bronze and gold leaf tones in the swirling iron make any space feel more inviting.
The Mercury Glass Table Lamp with drum shade (above) helps Ms. Wooly & Warm maximize every last ray of winter sun. The textured base gives reflections an extra oomph and helps to brighten any corner the lamp is placed in.
Casual, comfortable, and easy to stash away when Ms. Wooly & Warm feels like changing up her stylish decor for warmer weather – that's what the Zuo Draper Lounge Chair (above) is all about. It's also the best place in the living room to curl up with a book and hot toddy!
The Arteriors Home Keifer Side Table (above) makes the perfect match for that comfy chair. The metal cast base has the appearance of petrified wood while the black marble top keeps things classy. Ms. Wooly & Warm knows how versatile this piece is and uses it for everything from side table to plant stand.
