A coat of white paint on the fireplace does wonders to harmonize a space filled with modern design elements. Lanterns offer an updated alternative to traditional lamps.
Bold polka dots, geometrics, and even stripes can fit into a modern design. Just place patterned pieces strategically near solids for balance.
Out-of-the-ordinary pieces work well in a sleek and minimal space. Wooden and green elements help give this modern room a natural feel.
A single focal color in various shades really stands out against a white backdrop. To modernize an old fashioned fireplace, consider a cool concrete façade.
