Neutrality and sobriety are incredibly fundamental in modern style decor. Therefore, the color palette must be carefully thought out before use. But calm down this is simpler than it sounds. For starters, the white. This is the color most used in the modern style and should be used at the base of the decor, to contrast choose the shades of gray or black, but in smaller quantity. Earth tones such as brown and beige can also be used.
The most vibrant and striking colors should be used in smaller pieces such as pillows, clocks and vases, for example, they will give a charm and a special touch to the environment. Pastel colors are a good choice for bringing color without interfering too much with the neutrality of the environment, but you can dare a little more, especially using the primary colors blue, red and yellow. Bottom line: Neutral tones at the base mixed with primary or pastel colors. Very simple so far isn’t it?
Furniture and parts with function
All furniture and decoration objects must have a reason for being in space. No clutter with chairs, tables and other unused items. In fact, the concept here is ‘the less the merrier’. Another tip is to bet on multifunction furniture such as sofa beds and retractable tables, for example. The floor lamps are also a sure bet on the modern style as they decorate with a lot of functionality and leave the very beautiful environment. Personal objects such as paintings, picture frames and other trinkets should be used very carefully so as not to visually overload the space. When in doubt, one piece or another.
