A “Modern Family” inspires – home décor from the movies

14 Dec

Got used to the glam and glitz of the TV shows and now your apartment seems all gloomy and plain? Well, maybe there’s a way to bring a bit of glamor to your own home.

“Modern family” was one of my favorite TV shows, not only because it was all witty and funny, but because I absolutely loved the homes’ design, especially Claire and Phil Dunphy’s. It’s got some shabby chic elements that make it look so cool, yet real. It’s a perfect blend of vintage and modern pieces that come together to create a dream house for a typical chaotic family with children.

Even if we won’t be able to find the exact same colors and models as seen on TV, film sets can be a real inspiration when looking for fresh ideas to spruce up our apartments.

Depending on your budget you can start with small accent pieces, like colorful, striped pillows, comfy throws, or beautiful deep red drapes. A high-quality rug would be a welcomed addition to any room; while they vary a lot in terms of texture and style, rugs may fulfill a series of decorating functions such as warming up space, serving as anchor pieces or simply adding color to minimalist decorating schemes. They also come in a rainbow of natural colors so whether you’ll choose an all-fiber rug, a heirloom or a hooked one, you’ll get the desired effect, be it luxurious or casual. Home Goods is a great resource for this kind of home furnishings and accessories. And Pottery Barn has some interesting pieces that will give your home a “Modern family” look.

Then you’ll want to choose a nice coffee table, a rustic yet stylish cabinet and maybe a trendy plush sofa. Crate&Barrel is a great store for finding unique home décor, ranging from kitchen ware and bedroom decor to sofas, sleepers and loveseats, linens, tapestries, carpets, and much more.
