Warm Modernism

I despise the notion that a contemporary interior need be cold and minimal. That misconception fueled the Swatchbook of the Week–as did another misconception, that high style comes at a high price. This living room option proves that it’s possible to achieve a cozy, modern interior — even on a tight budget. Opt for a terracotta or rusty red to establish a cozy vibe. Wood elements add further warmth, especially when paired with a sleek modern sofa. When on a tight budget, turn to stores like CB2, Ikea and West Elm for large pieces, then hunt for affordable accessories through Overstock, Amazon or the sale section of your favorite sites.
