A Walk on the Modern Side

Back in the fall, we were invited to dinner and got a tour of a young couple's new home. Our hostess has her own marketing firm and an eye for modern design. The home is contemporary and livable.  Come walk through this dynamic space with me.

The entry adjoins a warm carmel-colored sitting room decorated in brown suede but with a striking zebra print bench and black tables.

Those touches of black are repeated in the the open living room, dining room and kitchen. This fantastic entertaining space is dominated by a cherry red, wrap-around sofa with black pillows and two comfortable black leather chairs. 

 The red is repeated in the dining area draperies.

Upstairs a calmer palette prevails.  The guest room has white walls, a soft yellow print drapery, and gray silk duvet.
The master bedroom pairs soft grey with brown and seafoam for a restful mood.

But the lower level ramps up the volume again with a bold turquoise-and-orange color scheme.

I could just see teenagers squeezed into this wrap-around booth drinking cokes and eating pizza. 

One of my favorite parts of this lower level was the placement of hanging guitars.

Our enjoyable evening in this modern decor left me flabbergasted by the diversity of creativity. The variety of tastes and talents is as impressive as the distinctiveness of snowflakes and finger prints.  Wouldn't you agree?
