Late Summer: Tiny Modern Outdoor Spaces

Posted by Team GFURN on

There’s still lots of time to enjoy time outside before summer turns to fall and winter. You don’t need a large area to create an inviting outdoor space. Even the tiniest space on an apartment balcony or a postage stamp size backyard behind your condo can be turned into an appealing modern outdoor space.

In fact, as you can see in the two images below, all you really need to enjoy a small outdoor space is a comfortable chair or two. Of course, a little shade doesn’t hurt.

To our way of thinking, the more trees and plants that can be included in a very small outdoor space, the better. Add an occasional table for drinks and such, and you’re all set for early morning wake up with coffee or later with a good book and a cold drink. You’ll be able to make late summer memories in your tiny modern outdoor space to last you through a cold winter.

Side tables don’t always have to match your outdoor chairs, but this Acapulco Side Table might be an exception. It will look awesome alongside the Acapulco Chair shown above. In black or a matching hue, it’s the perfect companion table.

Very small modern outdoor spaces can bring on big style. Decorating a small space takes less time and a smaller budget than outfitting a large outdoor. Consider all the beautiful touches you can add to a small space, making it not just beautiful but stunningly simple and stylish. A super small outdoor space may not lend itself to entertaining large groups, but it can be just right for one or two. We hope you’ll be able to create a tiny modern outdoor space you’ll love.

Much to Love: Modern Dining Rooms

Pushing the Boundaries in a Chicago Home – Homepolish

There’s so much to love about modern dining rooms. To create your very own, begin with a clean slate. We favor white (of course you get to choose from a wide range of white tones) walls that are meant to offer a great background for your artwork, whether it’s an oversized painting, a row of photographic art pieces framed with wide matting or framed drawings that capture your eye and your heart.

A fantastic pendant light is perfect over the modern dining room table, while underneath the table, an appealing area rug looks like it belongs, but in a modern dining room, no rug at all is a viable option.

You’ll find modern dining chairs in a range of designs are available today. Different chairs work well with different tables. They mix and match beautifully. Many of us love the look of a modern dining table surrounded by a mixed group of chairs, each one different in its form and color.

Modern dining rooms can be created to suit your design aesthetic and your need for either a neutral or colorful look. In the image above, it’s all about color, while the space below is more neutral in tone. But, they’re both lovely modern dining room, each created to meet specific requirements of those who will enjoy morning, noon and night.

You’ll also find modern furniture has so many backstories to tell. For instance, who designed each piece, what materials they used, and why. Also, what informed their choice of shape for that particular chair or table. For instance, Saarinen’s Tulip Table and Chairs have become a Mid-Century Modern iconic dining set. These are pieces that mix well with other Mid-Centuries tables and chairs, as mentioned above.

World Traveler: Inviting & Irresistible Guest Rooms

Posted by Team GFURN on

Whether you have someone coming to visit who’s been traveling the world or just driving across the city to stay overnight, you want to offer that person a place to rest and relax that’s at once inviting and irresistible. The guest room can be inviting because it offers a bed that looks super comfortable or a sitting area that beckons to the weary traveler. It can be irresistible because of its color palette or its creative furniture and soft furnishings.

Let’s look at a couple of guest room possibilities and furniture options, shall we?

Mid Century Modern Bedroom - Bigger Than the Three of Us

Pinterest

For anyone who has been traveling a lot, it comes to mind that the most welcoming guest bedroom can be one that’s a bit minimalistic, not plain, but uncluttered. As seen above, that can include some color and pattern. Add great mid-century lights, in this case, a beautiful multi-arm pendant and cool lamps on both bedside tables. They’re just right for this room.

The Beata Nightstand/Bedside Table is thoroughly modern and just a touch of color. A wonderful guest room could be designed around this one piece of furniture. How cool would that be?

We’ve already talked about the importance of comfortable seating in the guest room is. The Kanion Single Seater Lounge Chair/Sofa (in a great gray called Whale) should fit the bill. It has a nice back and comfy arms and looks so modern. This seat should be perfect in the room that’s waiting for that special guest.

When you create a guest room with a special person in mind, every element will be infused with love and concern, and it will show. Be sure the bed and bedding are the most comfortable you can afford. And add lots of thoughtful extras like a basket filled with necessities that might have been left behind by your guest, plus water and juice or coffee and tea if your space has an area to brew it. Extra pillows and blankets may also be welcome additions.

Even world travelers need a place to rest that’s both inviting and irresistible, and a well-appointed guest room with awesome modern style can be that spot.

Playful Spaces - Modern Interior Looks for Kids

Posted by Team GFURN on

Rooms with a modern vibe don’t just consist of living rooms, dining rooms, and master bedrooms, kids’ spaces can also be made more comfortable and beautiful with iconic modern style. Go for a retro look or start with a few modern pieces like a child-size mid century chair or table and chairs or bring in modern lighting (lamps and hanging lights) and soft furnishings. Poufs, bean bag chairs, cushions, and throws can add to a warm and inviting environment in which a child can thrive.

The stylish boy’s bedroom above is designed to work at every stage as the child grows from “first big bed” to teenage years and perhaps beyond when he comes home on break from college. Other elements in the room include a wire shelving unit for toys and a playful cloth teepee for reading.

So cool and all fun, the Salome Pendant Lamp is at once stylish and playful with its intriguing modern look.
