Designer Picks : Tamara’s Modern Simplicity

MHD_designer picks_tamara_1


The key to decorating your home with a classic and timeless style is investing in high-quality staple pieces with clean lines and neutral finishes. Here I have featured a very classic sofa with simple lines and minimal decoration, this ensures that the furniture piece is void of any ‘trendy’ design features that may later date the decor. In this scheme I have also selected a cararra marble coffee table with a steel base, this piece may veer in the direction of ‘contemporary’ for some, but i envision this table as a chameleon that could be placed in many design settings. The clear glass pendants in a trio and the solid black walnut stool round out the timeless and classic decor pieces in this design scheme; now comes the fun pieces in the current trends you are coveting.

The Arne Jacobsen Swan chair is definitely a classic piece in design history, however it does lend itself to spaces in the more contemporary to retro inspired styles. So this piece may not always work as your design tastes evolve, but for now I am loving this bright pop of hot pink! The large Deluge Giclee water colour canvas by Zoe Garred is a statement piece that has inspired the entire decor scheme. A black spotlight floorlamp detailed in brass is a great addition to this space in conjunction with the brass spike decorations to place on the coffee table and a traditional silver teapot used as vase to juxtapose some of the modern lines.

To achieve this Modern Simplicity look try:  Benjamin Moore: 2121-60 White Diamond, 2131-10 Black Diamond + 2079-30 Peony.
