Modern Spaces

Have you ever walked into a modern space that immediately took your breath away? Maybe it was the decor that impressed you. Or maybe it was the architectural details. Whatever it was, have you ever wanted guests to feel the same when they walk in your space?

I know that I get pretty excited when people compliment my home. It makes me feel accomplished and happy. One way to give your space a dramatic look is by adding beams to your high ceilings and specifically in your living room. This alone takes your home from average to ultra cool.

Above, we see a room designed in such a way that your eyes are drawn immediately up. the ceiling also compliments the built-in shelving at the end of the room. 

Vaulted Ceilings

I love the look of dark wood beams against a white ceiling. There is something rustic and romantic about it. It’s like you’ve been transported to the country side of Italy or Venice. You can achieve this look by simply adding beams to your existing ceiling and lots of cool modern furniture. No need for demo.

Modern Loft

Who hasn’t dreamed at one time or another of living in an urban loft in the middle of the city. Talk about crazy cool! This particular loft has a warehouse approach with giant ceilings and deep rustic beams that have been painted all white. The square footage may be average but with these high ceilings, it feels grand.

Also, nothing would accent any vaulted ceiling more than distinctive chandeliers hanging overhead.

Modern Living Room

This clean space has beams that look seamless and minimalist. They give off enough texture to make a statement but not look overwhelming. This look is for the homeowner that needs some dimension in their space without going overboard. Pretty!
