With summer in full swing, and travel on everyone’s mind, we thought it appropriate create a blog post detailing our idea of modern beach house design decor. I’ve pulled images of two distinct but different design styles, one modern, but neutral with natural elements and modern rustic details…. the other, fun, colorful and eclectic. Both are winners no matter which you prefer…think Montauk, NY or the Hamptons, without the snobby rich kids sipping martinis and looking you up and down. LOL. Which one are you…organic modern sophisticated, or colorful eclectic? I hope you find our images as inspirational as we do…and a few of ModShop’s pieces you could use to … Continue reading Beach House Chic
Since being named Pantone’s color of the year in 2013, Emerald green has continued to dominate color palettes in the design world. From the brighter shades, to deeper tones of emerald and forest, this “it” color is everywhere, from the runway to home decor, today’s top designers are using this vibrant color to add layers of luxurious color to everything. Pair with warm organic materials like walnut or rosewood, accent with brass finishes to create eclectic spaces… Modshop carries a fabulous assortment of upholstery items in luxe emerald green velvet, and we offer any of our lacquered pieces in any custom shade of emerald green.

Our latest style obsession!!…Scandinavian or Nordic design. Both interior design and the furniture design itself. This style is generally characterized by white walls, wood floors, clean, minimal furnishings in natural materials accented by soft pastel hues and bold geometric prints. Due to the long winter and short summer days in Scandinavia, the use of light and open space is crucial in Nordic Design, this creates a contrast to the Nordic landscape and creates a warm, inviting interior. Whether you prefer the monochromatic palette, or the more feminine pastel variety, Nordic design has something for everyone. Here’s what we found inspirational, and some of ModShop’s own Nordic inspired collections. Enjoy!
This post is not so much inspired by, but more of a plea to the owners of all the cabins frequented by families like ours during the winter month…After returning from a quick snowy get-away to Mammoth Mountain, I did some research on condos and rental units available for rent…hoping to find one cool property to include in this post. Sadly, there’s not a whole lot to show. In general the decor of these rentals is depressing at best! It seems everyone shops at the same generic log cabin furniture store…and the offerings are not worth of the beautiful surroundings of the snowy outdoors. I think we should put together … Continue reading Mountain Modern
