    Modern Living

    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.

    Modern Dining Room

    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.

    Gallery Wall

    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.

    Modern Music

    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.

    Modern Treehouse

    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.

    Modern Kids Room

    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.

    Modern Bedroom

    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.

    Modern Bathroom

    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.

  • Style Trend: Modern Bar Stools

    Modern Bar Stools

    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.

    Modern Bar Stools

    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!

  • From Outfit to Interior: Stylish Decor for Wintry Weather

    Derek Lam Shearling-trimmed Coat

    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.

    Modern Lighting

    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.

    Modern Furniture

    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.

  • Modern Table Lamps That Make a Statement

    Modern Table Lamp

    There are certain details of a room that can either be overlooked or can make a big statement. One of those details is a modern table lamp. I’m a huge advocate of stylish modern lighting. The right lighting can change the look of a room in the best way. One great thing about a great table lamp is that it creates a nice glow in the evenings, providing a cozy space in your home. And in small spaces, we need those petite items to make big impacts.

    Table Lamps

    To create more lighting in a hallway, try placing a chair and pretty side table in the deep corner. In this hallway (above) the small table is paired with a simple shade lamp. What a great nightlight when the home is dark!

    Contemporary Table Lamp

    Flight Dark Yellow White Contemporary Table Lamp

    I’m absolutely in love with this light! It would look fantastic in a hallway space, or any space for that matter.

    Modern Bedroom

    Bedrooms are an important room to light up. Bedside lights need to be the right height to allow for perfect nighttime reading. The room above has done a great job by sticking with its modern roots and adding that small round light.

    Robert Abbey Table Lamp

    Delta Nickel Smokey Taupe Robert Abbey Table Lamp

    This clean and sophisticated lamp would make for a great bedside light. Pairing two on either side would be striking!

    Modern Living Room

    If you are looking for a little more drama in your space, look for lamps that are taller in height. You can find one that is large in width for extra va va voom or keep it simple and find one that is skinnier, to fit in less space.

    Tripod Table Lamp

    This “movie set” like lamp is super industrial and will add some Hollywood style to your space.

    What's your favorite lamp style?
