One of my favorite areas to look in any modern house interior design is the kitchen. A lot of people are turned off by kitchens (maybe because they associate them with the chore of cooking or negative connotation with food), but I am actually fascinated by them because I think that they are provide an awesome centerpiece to any modern house interior. To me a kitchen is the epitome of beauty meeting function. It takes a really creative and skilled designer to make everyday items feel whimsical and glamorous, but this one managed to do just that. This modern kitchen design doesn't shy away from appliances and such, but rather uses them as almost a decorative piece of art. Just brilliant.
I love the whimsical nature of this modern house interior design because it mixes hard with soft elements (in an abstract way of course). For those of you who have no clue what I am talking about, I think that this modern dining room is a great example of what I am talking about. There are a lot of rigid elements that give of a very masculine energy just as the wood beams, mid century modern dining table, and just the sleek architecture in general. I love how these elements are balanced by softer and more feminine touches like the delightful blown glass chandeliers, fur rugs, and vibrant orchids. I imagine that this same vibe is continued throughout the rest of the modern home interior and really colors everything in the dwelling.
One of my professional passions is definitely creating gorgeous and unique modern house interior design. I have spent many years honing my craft, and finally feel that I have developed my own personal brand and technique. In my opinion, the key to really good modern house design is achieving a balance of soft and hard, masculine and feminine, whimsical and obtuse. For each element that I choose in one of these categories, I try to balance it with its opposite. For example, for these modern living room ideas I was first inspired by the stunning and fun staggered glass globe chandelier. Because this was more of a whimsical element, I needed to balance it with something much stronger. That is why we chose the bold all black two-story fireplace that would have felt too foreboding in another setting.
No matter what size area that I am working on, I really like to start with a great foundation of modern house interior design to create an elite canvas underneath whatever furniture and decorative accents I may bring in. In the case of this open concept living room and kitchen, this show-stopping modern staircase is the main focal point and everything else just fades into the background. Sure this was a high dollar element to create, but you do not need to spend as much on ornate furniture or artwork because all of the design is centered around the architecture. If your home has outstanding architectural details like this (whether they be modern or more traditional in style), keep you interior design ideas subtle and let the house be the focal point.
It is interesting to see how interior decorators carry modern house interior design into bathrooms. I have always considered bathrooms to be one of the more boring aspects of the house because it is not an area that you can really allow your creativity to shine. At least that is what I thought until I saw some of the modern bathroom designs on this site! I am amazed at all of the different ways that they can turn standard bathroom elements into something super cool by using unique materials and unexpected layouts. Take this master bath, for example. I would have never dreamed of putting the shower smack dab in the center of the room, but boy does it work well in here. Not only that but all black tile and trim is definitely an edgy thing to bring into home interior design, but it works so well in here.
I spend a lot of time looking at modern house interior design, but I have never really focused on the exterior before until we bought this property and need to actually build a home. I have been pouring through modern house plans trying to narrow down what general look we are going for, and it has been very eye opening. This design stood out to me because it sort of has a barn look (which goes well with the 100 acres we purchased), but with a more modern edge. I love the support pieces along the roof and the cement fire place that brings a more edgy feel to it. Plus, I had never really considered black for exterior house colors, but I am definitely sold on it after seeing how awesome it looks on this house.
