Your home should be a reflection of your personality. Interior decorating has made this possible through the use of home essentials like art, area rugs, accent seating, and decorative throw pillows. Set the tone in your living room with contemporary throw pillows to express both character and modernity.
What is Modern Design?
Modern design is characterized “by polished surfaces, strong geometric shapes and asymmetry (HGTV).” Today’s modern trends incorporate everything from the use of primary colors, to eclectic prints, and organic materials. Modern throw pillows are a wonderful living room accent that can stimulate your interior with these new and innovative trends.
Tip #1: Mod is In
Just as fashion has a history of repeating itself, so does home decorating. Mid-century inspired décor with electrifying colors and large prints are perfect for the summer season. Want to make your interiors pop? Pair these charges furnishings with simple, neutral seating. Popular colors include orange, lime, red, and blue.
Tip #2: Win with Primaries
Not into flashy prints, but still want to enhance your space? Mix in simple throw pillows with primary colors to achieve a controlled, modern design. If you truly adore colors from the secondary family (orange, green, purple) you can always introduce them as well. Solid pillows help anchor a space as they are more structured and less fluid in appearance.
Tip #3: Geometry Isn’t Just in Math
Geometric patterns are the quintessential representation of modern design. They can also add dimension to your living room with their cascading lines and abstract patterns. Designer throw pillows made of hand-screened silk will give your living room a 60’s inspired (glam) makeover.
Tip #4: Choose Pillows with “Texture”
Nothing takes your space to the next level like a little bit of texture. Home décor throw pillows that offer a “textural illusion” will help enhance every line and material in your space.
Tip #5: Graphic Prints
If you are looking to create an interior with a jovial feel, try graphic pillows. Like print ads, graphic throw pillows are an implied way of revealing your opinions on life and ideals. They also go against the grain in terms of traditional design by incorporating text and unconventional imagery.
