Keep it streamlined. If it’s time to swap out lighting and accessories, such as a clock, go for simple and clean fixtures, which tend to be more affordable than ornate pieces. These days, they offer an array of styles to fit any budget. In this kitchen, Terracotta Design Build creates a streamlined style with a lone clock on the wall and two small fixtures over the sink.
An antique grandfather clock is paired a contemporary chair to give a modern update to this classic piece. Vintage paintings of the ocean, hung between the two items, help bridge the space, making the collection feel balanced.

Just off the kitchen, this quaint breakfast nook has room for the whole family.

In the sitting room, Chip and Joanna, hosts of HGTV's hit show Fixer Upper, blended a modern design with industrial details to create this unique space. The wainscoting was removed in the space and the walls were painted a warm beige, while modern slate floors, a clean, white sofa and simple, linen curtains finish the modern design. To bring stylish storage into the space, Joanna added industrial cabinets and shelving to complete the room.
With white porcelain tile walls and a gray slate tile floor, this master bathroom is elegant and simple. Repurposing an antique clock as a medicine cabinet adds storage, while the 19th-century Italian chair and antique Swedish bench provide a variety of seating options.
The mostly neutral, modern furnishings and hardwood floors of this living room are punched up by the orange rug, blue coffee table and assorted throw pillows. The exposed brick wall and fireplace make for a great focal wall and interesting place for the television.

Decked out in geometric patterns, decorative art and low-slung furniture, this living room lives in serious midcentury modern style. A starburst clock keeps time on the gray wall, while a sleek coffee table keeps a low-profile on the striped area rug.
