HOW TO ACHIEVE THE ORGANIC MODERN LOOK IN YOUR HOME

Organic modern is a style term bouncing around in today’s design lexicon, so it’s a good time to look at exactly what it means. The term refers to an overall design style, a balanced mix of modern lines and often crisp white surfaces contrasted with natural forms and materials, and neutral colors.

If you love the clean feel of modern design but also appreciate the warmth of natural components, modern organic might be just your style. It’s part minimalist, part unruly naturalist, and all fresh and now.

Browse below for modern organic inspiration and tips for incorporating this earthy interior design trend in your spaces.

USE NATURE AS YOUR DECOR

Go big for maximum impact: a massive pile of logs, a giant set of naturally shed antlers, a long piece of driftwood propped up in the corner.

MIX HIGH AND LOW

Score most of your stuff from budget sources with good basics in white or black (Target, Ikea, Craigslist etc.) and punctuate it with one or two pieces you’ve saved up for that are more of a splurge.

THROW BLANKETS AND RUGS

Do you enjoy contemporary design and modern furniture but still want your home to feel warm and inviting?  Nothing says comfort like a rug.  Don’t be afraid to use throws and rugs in unconventional places.

A LITTLE MARBLE GOES A LONG WAY

Love the look of these marble waterfall counters? It’s a small luxury that can make a big difference in the look and feel of your space. Pair it with something smooth and wooden to bring in a touch of warmth.

PICK UP SOME HIPSTER PLANTS

Plants are for the most part inexpensive, yet are often overlooked in interiors. If you don’t have any houseplants, I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the boost they can give your decor.

GET MODERN ART FOR (ALMOST) FREE

Go to the newsstand and scoop up an armful of art magazines that catch your eye, then scour the pages for images worth snipping out and framing. Once they’re in nice little frames, no one will be the wiser that they’re not fancy limited-edition prints.

PAINT TRIM AND WALLS THE SAME HUE

Pick a slightly chalky hue, like milk white, putty, glacier blue or fog gray, and paint both walls and trim. Pick the same or slightly varied shades for each room to create an easy, organic flow.

SPLURGE ON BATH DETAILS

Little things can make a huge difference, especially in small spaces like the bathroom. Look for thin, fringed hand towels, a bath mat made from river stones or teak, and bath products in dark amber glass bottles.

SCORE SOME RECLAIMED WOOD

Even if a dining table like this one is beyond your skill level (and reclaimed wood floors are beyond your budget), it could still pay to track down a slab or two of cool-looking reclaimed wood.

GO FOR A ZEN LOOK

Organic modern style blends the clean lines of modern design with the warmth and ease of natural objects and materials. A little sleek, a little rustic, this popular style mash-up is easy to live with and seems to appeal to both men and women in equal measure.
