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.
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.
