A blog on modern living

The beauty of modern style is making your home look effortless, yet polished. Think of these easy ideas as less of a full-home makeover and more like a face lift – each one is easy enough to knock out in a weekend, but adds modern style that will look timeless for years to come.

Idea #1: Lean your picture frames

There is literally zero room for error with our Profile picture frames. They exude museum-like quality no matter where you place them. Grouping these frames together makes the collection look cohesive, while a mix of sizes, finishes and leaning against the wall give it a uniquely modern point of view. (Not to mention, it totally beats hanging!)

Idea #2: DIY wall storage

Modern design brings function where it wasn’t before, ergo DIY wall storage. If your home doesn’t have built-in storage, Room & Board’s wall shelves and ledges make it easy to create storage that’s just as beautiful and helpful (at a fraction of the cost).

Idea #3: Pick a pendant

A modern pedant light is not only a beautiful focal point in a room, but it provides significant light output without taking up floor space. Almost all of our pendants are exclusively designed and made from a mix of unique materials.

Idea #4: Bring in a bench

A well-placed bench can take an ordinary room to the next modern level. Not only is it a space-saver, a bench can usually seat more people around a table and offers a distinct design point of view. Take our Ava bench, for example. Its plush fabric seat adds a fresh mix of materials next to the solid wood Madison table and Doyle chairs.

Idea #5: Use that wall space

We already talked about shelves and ledges, but have you considered additional wall-anchored storage or lighting? This clean look is ultra-modern and we love the contemporary feel and function it adds to a space.
