The word “modern” can often sound sort of extreme when explaining decor. It can suggest a style that is maybe uncomfortably minimal or wildly avant-garde. However, there has been a great shift in modern home decor that places livability at the forefront of its design. A blank surface in your home is the perfect vehicle to sprinkle with modern flair without losing your personal touch.

Because vinyl is removable, you can constantly adjust your room when you feel it needs freshening up, or easily transition your decor seasonally. Due to their incredible thinness, vinyl wall decals make big statements while still retaining a minimalist tone.

Modern shelving not only highlights your personality, but becomes a decorative aspect of the space as well. Wall shelves of interlocking wooden shapes can often double as art pieces while still remaining practical. Striking geometric shapes in vibrant hues add character without looking overwhelming.

A big way to heighten your plants decorative properties is with modern looking wall planters. Earthenware is making a big comeback, so clay pottery adorning your walls can create a very boho-chic atmosphere. Wall hanging cement planters are a huge modern trend as they give spaces a smooth industrial look while still looking lush.
Hanging family photos is nothing new, however frames a making a huge impact on modern decor. Covering your wall entirely with mix-and-matched frames is a fun way to not only modernize blank space but make it completely customized as well. Prints and photographs can be swapped and switched out whenever you like, so you can constantly create new moods and themes in your space while surrounding yourself with images that inspire.
