Saturday Styles :: Modern

Yes-I know it is Sunday. Let me start by apologizing for the radio silence of late, I feel like my free time is non-existent right now..trying to get back to it, starting now.

So if you saw the first "Saturday Styles" post, you learned about traditional taste. Today we are going to totally contrast that and take a look at modern style.

What is Modern? Well when I think modern, I always think sleek, clean lines, polished finishes, geometric shapes. When I think of modern color schemes, I often think of achromatic (black & white) or monochromatic (different shades all of one color). I also use the cues from lighting in a space, and for modern they are globes, clusters, intricate, or abstract shades, etc. 

Some key modern pieces:

Le Corbusier Chair from Design Within Reach (DWR)

Barcelona Chair from DWR

Also by Le Corbusier, the Sling Chair

Again, these style definitions are my interpretation of that genre. This is how I see modern, and I hope it clears up how you see modern style. For a deeper look into what modern style is, check out the "Saturday Styles :: Modern" Board on Pinterest.

So what do you think? Are you more sleek and clean-lined? Is modern your style?

Happy Styling!

  1. I don't care to do more than admire modern, but a friend's home is done almost exclusively in modern style, and it's fun to visit...
