Your kitchen always ends up being the gathering place in a home – whether you’re hosting a party or just hanging out with the family. Because of this, it’s time for everyone to spice up your modern kitchen island with some chic barstools. Some people go for comfort; for others, they only care about looks.
Then you have to think about the design of your modern barstools... It doesn’t matter what style your home is – industrial, mid-century modern, traditional or minimalist – there is something for everyone’s kitchen island.
Zuo Marius Red Bar Chair
Your kitchen will look all spruced up for a small price. Think of the modern barstool as kitchen jewelry. Today, I’ve pulled together three different looks for you, each one I love for a different reason.
I’m partial to the industrial look (above). This bright version is the perfect pop of color to bring into your kitchen.
Orson Black Leatherette Metal Modern Bar Stools
This Orson bar stool has a back. If you treat the counter as a place for chatting while cooking, a high-back stool will be more comfortable.
Anime Modern Transparent Acrylic Stackable Zuo Bar Stool
If you want your barstools to kind of disappear from a distance, acrylic is definitely the way to go.
I hope this helped and you find your ideal barstool!

Cheeky and fun, that's what Ms. Light & Airy is all about! The rising temperatures have her ecstatic to freshen up her space and her wardrobe, like with this Floral Sheath Dress from A-Thread.
A few of these Cosmo Mirrored Candle Wall Sconces placed strategically along her hallway or in the bath make everything feel bigger with their reflective surfaces, whether or not the candles are lit. Ms. Light & Airy has this Cirrus Gloss White Ceiling Fan in her living room to keep the space feeling fresh, it's clean lines and white finish help it almost disappear against a white ceiling!
Placing this Hand-Blown blue Bubble Glass Table Lamp in her entryway or at the end of a hall not only helps subtly offer some color, it also manages to be a statement accessory without feeling big and heavy. The materials of the Eileen Grey Chrome and Glass Accent Table keep it feeling just like Ms. Light & Airy, bright and clean. It would feel equally at home next to a chair in the living room or as a bedside table.
A set of these wide, comfy Zuo Whitworth Chrome White Modern Accent Chairs would help to make a little reading nook feel much bigger than it actually is. Ms. Light & Airy loves the open form and clean lines!
Of Monsters And Men is group of five daydreamers from Iceland whose dreams actually came true! Their music is uplifting and creates that perfect sound that makes you want to run around and sing at the top of your lungs! With Coachella Music Festival coming up this weekend, they are one of the many bands I am excited to see! I'm sure you all have heard their #1 song Little Talks off their latest album My Head Is An Animal and you can watch the video below just in case you're not sure!

The collection of objects seem as if you found them on the beach, in the mountains, or forest during your childhood discoveries and is mixed with current modern elements. A simple modern sofa is a great grounding element for eclectic design and allows the shape and texture of the other elements to stand out like sculptural art. The feeling is rich like the instruments behind the smooth voice of lead singer Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir in Of Monster And Men.
These lyrics are perfect and I hope if you get the chance to check them out at Coachella you do. And most importantly, I hope you get to play outside like when you were young, full of life and full of love!

Smooth and comfortable. Crisp and clean. Accented here and there. Ms. Feminine & Polished is all that and more!
Contemporary look, geometric base, polished metal. This Geometric Tempered Glass End Table is the perfect shape and size to migrate from room to room when our girl wants to try something new and mix things up.
Lighting doesn't get much more feminine and polished than the White Billowing Cloud Possini Euro Pendant Chandelier! Curved panels, diffused light, sigh. It makes quite the stunning statement in her entry or over the dining table.
Ms. Feminine & Polished likes her rooms well-lit with a little sparkle, and this Hammered Metal Cylinder Silver Leaf Table Lamp fits the bill perfectly. Its shimmering tapered base reflects all of the lovely light the lamp casts.
The Antique Brass Halogen Double Pharmacy Holtkoetter Floor Lamp offers a special touch for a favorite nook in her home. Contemporary and stylish, the adjustable arms are dimmable to create quite the mood.
Our Ms. Feminine & Polished knows that the outdoors are an extension of her space, and lighting is equally important! A few of these sleek Tao Steel Modern Troy Outdoor Wall Lights give her porch and patio a glow like no other, while the frosted rippled glass gives a touch of ladylike class.

Remember when a playroom was just a room filled with big, brightly colored plastic toys and lacking any modern design element? Certainly that is not the case these days. Today playrooms are nothing short of stylish and are rooms that fit seamlessly into beautifully decorated homes.
If you break down the design elements of a great playroom then I think it comes down to three things: Function, Fun (quirk) and Style.
This playroom (above) is a great example in that there is great storage (function) with quirky masks on display and ready for play (fun). It also has modern furniture, which lends style to the space.
To keep the room stylish and appealing to adults try using stylish rugs, contemporary light fixtures, modern seating and storage. The great thing about using these types of pieces is that they can easily be used in other rooms when your little ones out grow a playroom or if you just like to change things around.
And don’t assume that playrooms have to be banished to the basement or bonus room. I turned my dining room (below) into a playroom for the time being. When the time comes to give the room it’s original purpose back it’s an easy switch.
So go ahead and use those grown up looking chairs and that modern light fixture that you’ve been admiring. Just mix in some playful art, functional storage and your child’s favorite toys, and you’ll have a playroom that everyone can enjoy.
