DESIGN TREND: A Natural Modern

The Natural Modern interior takes cues from minimalism but decorative direction towards industrial and mid-century pieces. This creates a balanced contrast of cool and warm through the use of linear and organic forms. Here, finishes lean towards natural untreated materials such as metal, wood, concrete and stone. Pops of color are used to create moments of interest though the general color schemes are more of a combo of neutral shades of grey, tan, white and black.

I’m loving this transition into more restraint. I feel like it establishes a continuity that is actually refreshing and timeless!
