For a masculine and modern bedroom, choose a bed with presence and a strong, geometric shape, like this contemporary four-poster style. “A mix of geometric and organic patterns and shapes in the same deep color palette creates a sense of calm in this space and helps to ground and unify the various patterns in the rug, bedding and Fantoni lamps,” says designer Amy Lau of this elegant retreat.
A square glass table with X-shaped bases provides seating for a large number of guests while complementing the jagged lines of a modern staircase. Lighting provides drama in the space in the form of a sleek, contemporary pendant, as well as a pair of amber-glass floor lamps that highlight a modern abstract painting.
The modern kitchen makes use of clean, straight lines: white cabinets without hardware, a long, dark brown island with seamless black countertop and square recessed lights. Adjustable task floor lamps make for one-of-a-kind pendant lights above the long dining table, which seats easily 10.
This sleek midcentury modern console features brass hardware and an eclectic blend of decor, including a gold table lamp and modern sculpture. A quatrefoil-shaped mirror –– a design where a four petal flour that intersects at a square –– is positioned above the console, allowing a peek into the kitchen.
This bedroom in neutral tones with blue accents features a headboard that combines wood and upholstery, a modern Parsons-style nightstand in gray, a textured blue square ottoman, and a geometric navy ceramic vase.
An vintage sofa pairs beautifully with the modern look of the white chairs and black circular side tables. The square black coffee table ties in the black accents that contrast against the patterned, neutral wallpaper. Small pops of color appear from the paintings and the multi-color striped throw pillows.
Cool color and subtle geometry is at play in this sophisticated Colorado bedroom. A tufted velvet headboard gets a modern lift from its sleek wood frame, and a square accent pillow in the same fabric adds a touch of fun. A petite lamp blends with the wall and lets the bed steal all the attention.
The open air dining room of this Point Lorna, California, villa home showcases the subtle charms of a European country estate, including this rustic dining table cosseted by cushioned, striped wicker high back chairs. The table is set with modern square chargers which complement the angle of the pendant lamp overhead. In the background, a fireplace warms the room while large windows frame a flourishing garden courtyard.
