Modern things that are ok but nothing spectacular.. 

Today I am sharing with all of you things that are not spectacular BUT THINGS THAT ARWE COMMONLY USED but amazing in look and appearance.

Not horrible ceiling lights

You know that certain type of spine-tingling horror that happens when you’re walking around a perfectly wonderful space only to have it ruined by looking up and seeing a terrible-looking ceiling light. Whether from it being too old and outdated to just plain ol’ boring, your flush-to-the-ceiling lighting needs don’t have to be neglected. (Or turned into a horror movie.)

2Modern has a delightful variety of ceiling lights that are modern and definitely not boring. So if you’ve got a small space, have to have something flush enough for a door to swing or just don’t like it when lights hang, here are six lights to check out:

10 really cool LED light fixtures

Remember when LED lights looked terrible?!!? Or when they gave out a weird, cold robot-y sort of light? Sorry to burst your light bubble, but LED lights aren’t just cool…they’re totally mainstream. So along with getting all the great benefits of LED lighting (longer life, better energy efficiency, eco-friendly, to name only a few) you now get to choose from some pretty stellar and sleek modern LED designs. From names like Cerno, FLOS, VIBIA, Mio, Pablo and more, we’ve chosen ten of our favorites (but don’t just stick to this list; you can find all of our LED lighting options here) for inspiration:

Modern Fireplace ideas...

Mmmm. Do you feel that? It’s a slight chill…a small breeze taking shape in the air. It’s the undeniable proof that colder winter months are on their way. That part of the earth and its inhabitants will soon be thrust into a time of reflection, hibernation and snuggly-ness. The perfect modern accessory for that sort of weather and those sorts of activities? Why a beautiful, modern fireplace and mantel, of course.

If you’ve been looking for some ideas to borrow that are truly unique, modern and unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, you might be looking for Berthold Haas’ work. The Austin-based craftsman doesn’t just build fireplaces — he’s got countertops, fountains and more under his belt — but it’s his fireplaces that have us so tickled with inspiration right now. Obviously it would take someone with his skill to create and craft fireplaces this good-looking (and any Texas residents or designers should probably give him a call) but we’re hoping these photos give you some ideas of what kind of things there are out there.

Even if you don’t have the money or time to renovate your whole house, modernizing a focal point like a fireplace could really anchor a space’s style and do a lot for someone wanting to live in a more modern space. See more of his work (of all sorts of things) on his online portfolio.

Wall lighting by Sally:

From the manufacturer: “Our stunning powder coated metal wall light is an exquisite piece of wall art which flaunts a stylised modern magnolia lamp for soft mood lighting. Evocative of stained glass windows, its floral symmetry adds dramatic and sculptural impact to a feature wall, even unlit. Flick the switch to add an ambient glow and stunning shadows to an alcove for intimate dining or above an occasional table to lowlight your favourite pieces.” Find more information on the manufacturer’s website.
