This weekend's Get the Look: Decor features Etsy's take on modern homes designed by professional architects and interior designers as featured on HGTV. These inspiring spaces show how investing in a few pieces of modern handcrafted furniture allows the architectural details of your home to stand out. Pair these special pieces with your choice of colorful artwork and decorative elements to create your own distinct mood and setting.
"Our increasingly complex and stressful lives make us crave simplicity. Modern style, with its clean lines and neutral palette, takes us back to the basics. But this isn't a carbon copy of mid-century modern. Today's modern is softened with rustic or natural elements like the stacked nesting tables, fossil lamp and French oak stool below." — HGTV
Visit HGTV's Designers' Portfolio for even more great spaces and styles to help you create the home of your dreams. The following Etsy Finds provide basic decorating ideas that will give your home a modern minimalist aesthetic using handmade and vintage furniture and decor accents available on Etsy.
Andreas Charalambous, AIA Principal Architect, FORMA Design, Inc.
"Traditional go-to colors for modern spaces: white and black. Get the updated version of this look by using a neutral, natural palette: soft gray, muted khaki or creamy oatmeal. It creates a clean yet simple look, which is the keystone of modern style." — HGTV
Christopher J. Grubb Principal, Arch-Interiors Design Group, Inc.
The cool blue tiles and pebble vanity top give this bathroom a clean, relaxing look.
"An aquatic feel is created using dual colors of blue tiles on the floor and walls. A cantilevered vanity topped with pebbles in resin rises up the wall and contains a semi-recessed sink on top. Sleek vertical lighting on each side of the mirror was used for soft indirect lighting." — HGTV
