Perhaps you love the sleek look of modern design elements, but you already own a more traditionally built home that you love even more. Maybe your historic Victorian style needs an upgrade, but you’re not sure you want to change everything completely. You are definitely not alone and with a little creativity, there are some clever ways to add the simple sophistication of modern design into any existing style. Here are a few ideas that can help you get started in building a look you love.
Blend in Your Baseboards
This is such a simple trick, but it makes a big impact. As a residential remodeling team in Atlanta, we see our fair share of traditional white or off white baseboards against walls painted a different shade. Make it modern by painting your baseboards, molding or trim to match the walls.
Pick One Color to Pop
One bright, bold color used sparingly is a great way to get a more updated feel in any room. Try a fire engine red bookcase or a deep, violet purple rug somewhere that they’ll stand out amidst a sea of calmer colors.
Artful Mixing and Matching
Adding a well-chosen piece of large, contemporary art to a wall is good – adding a mix of art in differing but complementary styles and sizes are even better. Try to find frames for each piece that all look very different in style, but are in similar shades of the same color to pull the pieces together.
There is no shortage of unique residential renovations in Atlanta. If you keep an eye out for modern pieces that speak to your existing sense of style, you can almost always find a way to weave them into a look for your home that you’ll love.
