How to recreate the Modernism look in your home

The essence of Modernism style stems from the quintessential ‘contemporary’ design scheme through the use of oak and walnut timbers, paired with raw concrete forms and black detailing. To perfectly align with a mid-20th century interior, introduce designer furniture in muted earthy tones such as olives, navy, and rust. Replica or designer styles from influences such as the Bauhaus designers also sit in perfect harmony with the Modernism look.

When styling, opt for abstract, bold and contrasting elements which work perfectly with this scheme. Introducing contemporary artwork and indoor plants also help brighten this otherwise minimal theme — bringing interest and a pop of colour to each room.
