Decorate Your Home With Modern Art And Sculptural Furniture
I can appreciate homes with a modern aesthetic because they highlight great design and can be a great space to showcase art. Art seems to shine and take center stage in these types of spaces because of the emphasis on minimalist design. You do not have anything distracting you from the focal point. There are no extra frills or knick knacks filling up every available square inch and you end up with a functional and uncluttered space. Everything serves a purpose in modern design but that doesn't mean it has to be utilitarian and cold. That is why I appreciated this modern living room decorated by interior designer Tristan Auer.

He created a blank canvas by painting the walls, ceiling and cabinetry white. He added visual interest by using strategically placed pops of color throughout the room. He also kept things interesting with structural furniture made of metal, wood and marble.
Since most of us can not hire a designer like Mr. Auer to decorate our home I decided to showcase a few pieces that resemble what he has showcased in his design but at a more modest price point. One of my favorite finds was the marble wire side table from Kmart that is only $29.99. Now that is a fantastic steal especially when it comes to furniture. If you ever had to shop for furniture you soon realize that even the most basic pieces can be thousands of dollars. Luckily for you most of the items I found are under $300 except for the chair which is still a steal for under $1000. Similar chairs sale for thousands of dollars more. Plus it comes in a range of over 30 colors.
