     Living In New York City

    When living in New York City there are typically two things you miss...your family and your square footage. This group of young professionals has come together to create a Modern Family in New York. They have renovated this 2700 square foot loft in the ever evolving Bushwick neighborhood and have vowed to live together for ten years. Two years in and they are still going strong.

     Modern Abstract Art

    What's great about having a modern family is that there's bound to be an artist connection! This great piece of abstract modern artwork was created by the boyfriend of one of the residents. Bold graphic artwork adds loads of character into the industrial loft space.

     Modern Black Sofa

    The black modern loveseat sits proudly in front of the industrial windows. Hanging round pendant lights at different levels is a great way to create a sculptural piece in a room with high ceilings.  

     Custom Wardrobe

    We all know that closet space in a loft is hard to come by in NYC. These custom designed wardrobes are are not only functional, but the wood creates some softness as it contrasts against the concrete floor and the crisp white walls.

     Modern Wallpaper

    Flocked damask Vera Wang wallpaper adds layers of visual interest behind the modern bed. A cluster of glass pendants lights add a bit of elegance into the room without being too over the top or too modern.

    Creating a beautiful, comfortable home with your modern family is a sure way to create priceless memories that will last a lifetime.

  • Room With a View: Modern San Francisco Home

    San Francisco Home

    This modern San Francisco home has a newly added room with a view, making you wonder what the street possibly did without this modern addition.... And that's saying a lot, considering it's a really pretty San Francisco street. The modern structure fits in well with the neighboring homes, but the bold black hue makes it really stand out.

    Metal Bridge

    The metal bridge stretches and connects the newly added room to a patio. The vairous shades of gray between the bridge, patio and structure work perfectly together and are accented beautifully with the landscaping. Modern outdoor furniture, maybe even with some pops of color, would be the perfect addition to this space.

    Folding Screen

    A perforated screen folds down over the south-facing facade of the newly added room to prevent overheating during the day. When the screen is raised, the home has amazing views of the San Francisco bay. The inside of this added room is white, clean and modern. Simple pendant lighting is the perfect choice when you want to keep a room minimal.

    Modern Dining Room

    Cyber Chatreuse Lucite Wall Clock, Pele White Glass Tech Lighting Mini Pendant, Zuo Taffy Natural and Chrome Dining Chairs, Zuo Novel Stainless Steel Dining Table

    Here's a little round up to help you achieve a chic, modern dining room like the one in this cool San Francisco home. Although we may not be able to live in a home this cool and with that view, we can still find elements of inspiration that we can apply to our own home.
