    • 0 Comments

    Not only do modern ceiling fans keep you cool, but they make your space look cool too! There's no need to buy one of those cheesy old ceiling fans anymore! There are so many amazing design options available for your modern home. Take a look at a few of our favorites!

    A modern white ceiling fan can blend away into the ceiling or can be a great sculptural element if you decided to go with a darker, wood-finish ceiling as shown above.

    Modern brushed steel fans are a great way to keep cool and look beautiful in an open loft setting, adding that futuristic element. Each of these fans (below) are like a piece of art. The two blades create a sleek and clean linear effect almost as if it's soaring overhead.

    The oil rubbed bronze finish on vintage, industrial style fans works great in a more modern rustic setting. They mix beautifully with the natural elements like wood, stone, and concrete while contrasting perfectly with bold colors.

  • Balancing Act: Modern Architecture Or Art?

    modern architecture

    Often times, modern architecture is nice to look at in the same way that art is, but is it somewhere we want to live? Well, we don't have to resolve this design debate here and now. This super cool home, aka The Balancing Barn, is a hotel!

    The reflective tiles and unique form are what gives this structure it's art-like quality.

  • Modern Office Design: Concept Office “Attic” by Vasiliy Butenko

    • 0 Comments

    modern office

    Many of us are greatly influenced by our environment and especially our work environment, but there are few modern office designs out there that really inspire you. Office design can do wonders for your productivity, creativity, and overall sense of well-being throughout the work week, but I think that many business owners fail to understand the full impact it has on their employees.

    Creating peace of mind in a stressful environment is something that can be hard to do, but the design of your space can really help you achieve this! Vasiliy Butenko did a marvelous job on the design of Concept Office "Attic" by creating a thoughtful plan and a more enjoyable workplace. 

    modern library

    A central volume within the space houses the workstations and is surrounded by a more comfortable lounge area with exposed vaulted ceilings. The rose colored volume becomes the main feature of this interior and is framed nicely by the natural wood walls and ceiling. Low, modern lounge sofas create a relaxed area perfect for flipping through the stacks of books that line the walls.

    The sleek black furniture, warm wood accents, and modern pendant lighting balance nicely with the strong choice of color in the space. An exposed bulb glass pendant light works beautifully in clusters, or it can stand alone. It doesn't clutter the space, but still adds visual interest.

    These textured wood walls create a beautiful softness while the pendant lights hang with grace from above. It's a modern environment with a cozy atmosphere that makes employees and clients alike feel like they're at home. Table and floor lamps are sculptural in form, and in this setting they're almost as beautiful as a piece of art.

    The concrete bathroom provides full amenities to the employees, making the office feel like an extension of their home. It's a beautiful bathroom in and of itself. In the work environment it's exquisite.  

    modern outdoor seating

    The outdoor seating provides a great area to relax and take in the ocean views. What an incredible place to let your creative energy flow.

    I know that we can't all be this lucky, but I hope your office provides you with a productive and creative environement! Happy Monday and have a great week!

  • Organic Elements in Modern Home Decor

    modern home decor

    Mixing organic elements in your modern home decor is the perfect way to create a cozy space. Elements like natural wood tables or sculptural chairs work great with clean solid lines and add layers of interest. This contrasting of materials provides both depth and character to a room, making it feel like a more artful and curated space.

    eclectic living room

    The rustic hardwood floor and exposed ceiling beams create an environment that already has character in its soul.  When modern furniture, industrial modern lamps, and accessories are layered over achitectural character, you create a very thoughtful space. The modern, but natural chaise lounge stands in the center of the space like an organic sculpture. Staple elements like these can make any space feel complete, especially with modern black sofas to ground the space.

    Natural textures bring life to this neutral interior (above). The textured rugs and rattan pouf fill the space with a softness that the concrete and metal do not provide.

     If your modern home decor is feeling a little too cold, warm it up with the use of natrual elements. It's this mixture of natural elements in modern interiors that creates a cozier, lived in feel.
