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.

Let's all try to have a little more fun this year and a great place to start is in your home!
