  • Modern Rustic Interior Design Style

    Modern Homes With Rustic Aesthetic

    You can have both, a modern and rustic style home.

    Who says you can't have the best of both worlds?... If you love modern design, but also love rustic style living that makes you feel far away from city-life, go for it. Just take a look at these images for inspiration...

    They all qualify as modern interior design, yet they all feel warm and rustic while still current and stylish. This living room above mixes textures with patterns perfectly, and a large rustic pendant light is the perfect cherry on top of any modern living room.

  • Interior Design on the Light Side

    Modern Design With A Pastel Color Palette

    Pastel clad interior design.

    So, the other day we talked about modern design from the dark side, and today I wanted to look at some pretty designs on the lighter side. Pastel colors are a huge trend right now and rightfully so.

    Landry Light Gray Sofa

    It's a fun way to lighten up (pun intended) modern design, which can sometimes be a cold and rigid. A pastel color palette is also a great way to add a little femininity to any space without the flowers and lace. A modern grey sofa would be a great starting point for this look...

    Loma Vista Blue Glass Table Lamp

    The fun thing about modern lighting is how well it can reinforce the design of a room. This sofa above is amazing, but it's brought to life even more with the turquoise table lamp by its side.

    Don't forget your vertical design... You can include some pastel accents on the wall as well. This modern dining room above does a nice job with their minimal art wall. The frames pair perfectly with the fun pendant light and mint dining chairs.

  • Prefab Perfection in Copenhagen

    Earth Day Celebrates Prefab Architecture

    Celebrating prefab architecture on Earth Day

    Happy Earth Day fellow modern design lovers! It only seems fitting to study prefabricated architecture on this day.

    Not only are prefabs usually designed with a modern, clean aesthetic due to the mobility factor, they are smart and energy efficient. Let's take a look at this prefab in Copenhagen...  

    Layers In Prefab Architecture

    Different layers used in prefab architecture. 

    Since the home was constructed somewhere else and made to travel, tons of waste has already been saved in comparison to homes built on-site.

    Another way prefabs are energy-efficient is with their tight construction. They are made to travel, which results in excellent insulation.

    Modern Prefab Dining Room With Hanging Light Fixtures

    Modern dining room in a prefab home with hanging light fixtures.

    The best part about prefabs, and also why I chose this home to showcase, is that they don't have to mean living out of a shipping container.... Today's current prefab homes are attractive inside and out.

    We here at Euro Style Lighting prefer simple, uncluttered design... Better to see the modern lighting that way.

  • Modern Sculpture: Suspended Cloud Painting

    Modern Art Exposed With Track Lighting

    This is what a marriage between painting and sculpture looks like.

    This sculptural work by Joris Kuipers is a beautiful marriage between painting and sculpture. There so much depth and movement in something that can also be so still.

    Detail In Each Flower Painting

    Depth and detail in each flower.

    This Dutch artist took his many years of studying traditional painting and applied it to large-scale installations.

    This suspended cloud piece spirals around a room, successfully combining the two methods of art.

    Fantasy World Created With Modern Art

    Modern art can create a wonderland if you allow it.

    Let's not ignore the importance of lighting when it comes to showcasing beautiful works of art. Modern, clean and smart track lighting is key. Without great lighting in galleries, you wouldn't be able to truly appreciate the art.

    The same goes for your own home and the way you showcase your family portraits or smaller artworks. Picture lights are perfect for smaller installations or residential art walls.
