There’s an obvious trend with my pins on my kitchen board on Pinterest. They’re all white! I am passionate about a beautiful white kitchen. It feels clean and fresh—exactly how you would like to feel in a space that has the potential to feel germy and (in my case) disastrous.
Here are some ways to create a beautiful white kitchen that’s homey and modern.

1. Find the perfect white chairs.
I love chairs. They might be my favorite piece of furniture. Finding the right chair for your space is crucial. If you have a small dining area, go for chairs that are easily stackable. If you have a bit more space, go for ones that can afford to be more substantial.

2. Add something organic.
When you’ve selected the perfect white chair, add on a few contrasting elements like beautiful greenery to the table.

3. Try subway tile.
If you're going for an all-over white, subway tiles are a great idea. They create a cohesive feel to the space and provide a classic aesthetic.
4. Add modern lighting.
You'll want to select lighting that doesn’t hide and makes a statement.This black pendant lamp hanging over a table is a great contrast to the white furniture.
Here are some beautiful white chairs that I would love to add to my dream kitchen.
1. Wendover modern white dining chairs would work well in any modern setting.
2. These white modern S-chairs are my dream! I’d love them in my home.
3. These bunny white and chrome dining chairs are easily stackable. Perfect for a smaller space!
4. These nob hill white chairs have a touch of the traditional with their classic shape, yet are updated with cleaner lines and color.

As the warmer months approach, there are fewer colors that can welcome romance, whimsy, and a playful, fresh feel like a pinky coral can. Pair the coral with gold and the result is strikingly sophisticated. Whether designing a modern, eclectic or contemporary space, pairing pink linen, like on the Mid-Century Modern Coral Linen Annabelle Chair with gold, like on this
Kathy Ireland Gold Table Lamp will make a room feel glamorous without being totally over-the-top. Add a sunburst mirror like this Modern Gold Sun Ray Oval Mirror and bring reflections of the glimmering gold sun in, too.

I know what you're thinking... What will my husband/roommate/boyfriend think? But pairing this soft color with hard angles (like on these gold side tables, or this geometric pendant lamp) balances out the color so that the coral accents can be neutralized and not look over-the-top 'feminine'--coral can work for any space! Simply add in a couple of gold wall sconces, like this classic one or this chunky one (that I am obsessed with) or a coral mirror, and the walls will scream chic without being 'too much' of anything. What do you think of this color pair? Would you decorate one of your rooms with this color scheme?

You think of every office space you've ever seen and you're faced with a conscious decision: do I make it look like an "office" or do I do something different?
Image from the Atlantic Cities
First, let's look at the concept of the modern "office." In an interview with the Atlantic Cities, writer Nikil Saval explains that the cubicle was a 1960s invention designed to increase the autonomy of the worker. The original goal was to eliminate class distinction and hierarchies and instead promote a greater sense of community and cooperation.
By most accounts (the comic Dilbert being among the most vocal), the cubicle has missed its mark.
And here's where the home office comes in. Because it's inherently about being autonomous (it is your house after all), the home workspace becomes an unfettered place where a person can define exactly what they want and need.
Collaboration space? Go with wide open tables. Bright and functional modern light fixtures help to keep the energy up in the room.

Creative space? Go colorful and casual with a variety of lights and versatile seating.
Brushed Steel Technocolors Teardrop Torchiere Lamp, Blue Woopsy Desk Lamp, Rhythm Kagiso Pattern Cotton Throw Pillow, Set of 2 Zuo Green Stackable Chairs
Concentration space? Increase focus by keeping all your essential supplies and files at an arm's length. Use an LED desk lamp to shed light on the task at hand.

The great thing about home office spaces is that space itself is no longer an issue, now that we do so much of our work digitally. Whether it's a converted closet or an entire dining room, working at home can be just as efficient and productive as anywhere.
