Modern Monday: B + W Bed

Modern Monday invites you to bed B&B Italia style.

The iconic Italian brand designs elegant furniture with streamlined finesse. This bedroom features a glossy white bed with curved lines. The side table is a portable egg-shaped stand with a sleek silhouette. The white area rug has an abstract pattern in black that plays off of the linen.

The design takeaway is that in an all white space, you can layer style using one color by adding different textures and finishes to the items in which that color appears. You can choose one contrasting color and repeat that for a high-impact space.

Modern Monday: Parisien Peacock

Modern Monday showcases the bottom level of a two-story Italian restaurant situated in Paris; specifically in Jean Paul Gaultier’s former flagship store. The staff even wears JP’s signature striped marine styled T-shirts.

The space features existing brick walls, raw cement columns, grey columns, peacock blue banquettes, green marble tabletops and wicker chairs and dramatic chandeliers.

I appreciate the bold colors of teal and green grounded with wood, wicker (synthetic), brick and cement and brightened with white paint.

Tres bien. Allez!
