Organic modern seems to be a style that is surging in popularity among my clients lately. Some of the key characterics are geometric shapes, clean material and color choices mixed with warm wood tones and completely organic elements ( think live edge wood slabs, lots of plants and nature inspired patterns). If this sounds like you then this project will be right up your alley. Check out  this

Organic Modern Great Room Design


All projects start out with an inspiration and design direction page. This sets the tone for the colors and elements that I bring into the space. I like to highlight certain key words and images that the client has used to describe themselves in our initial consultations, to help guide me in making style decisions.


A functional floor plan is key. I have said it MANY times. A good floor plan not only comes from the proper arrangement of furniture, but also from selecting pieces that are the right scale for the space. In this particular project the client had already purchased a rug for the living space, but after I got to space planning we realized that it was going to be way to small to anchor that area, therefore we had to change course and make some modifications.


We shifted it over to the dining area and used it as a key element in guiding our other design decisions. Since there was a lot of pattern and color in that textile a more modest pattern was used for the large scale rug in the living room. An oversize canvas behind the sofa helped bring in a bit more color into the living room side. Pops of mint were used in a few places to give the client the soft and muted color scheme she was looking for.




Two key pieces that embody the organic + modern aesthetic of this space were from World Market — one of my favorite places to shop for clients. This Brass and Marble Jayson floor lamp is a great scale for a vaulted living room and is just enough of modern flair for this space. And helloooo brass + marble. YES PLEASE.

This live edge coffee table is a super steal  for only $219, and will add so much warmth and texture to the space. I love how it contrasts with the clean and sleek lines of some of the other elements.

My favorite part of this project was the solution for some blank wall space between the windows. I wanted to add some texture and interest  without just putting up another framed piece of art. I found these awesome air plant holders on etsy and used them to create a pattern on the wall. In addition to addding color, texture and a living element to the wall it feels like an art installation. It is sure to be a point on conversation for any guests in the house.


Wondering how virtual interior design services can help you with your project? Check out the kind + amazing words from this client:

“We loved how you specifically told us measurements for installation. I really struggle with that, normally. Your work accomplished exactly what I’d hoped it would: confidence to pull off an intentional adult look (not random crap), the right scale for the space (always hard for me to get right size rug, etc) and more healthful than a typical space.”
