In a modern, urban setting where glass, polished stone and artificial finishes dominate the landscape, a dash of rustic goodness gives the space personality and rugged charm. And one of the best places to try out rustic elements is the kitchen! Even the most modern kitchen can be effortlessly combined with carefully placed rustic features and you need not always go down the route of a full-blown kitchen revamp to get this done. While there are plenty of little tweaks you can make to give your modern kitchen a rustic tweak, few offer an easier option than those floating, open shelves. Rustic kitchen shelving bring a completely new dimension to your open plan living and also ushers in delightful textural contrast. Since most (if not all) rustic style shelves come in natural wood, you also get to add a ‘hip element to your contemporary kitchen.

It pairs well with most colors and can bring a whole new energy to a minimalist bedroom. Where a white modern bedroom feels open and airy, a blue modern bedroom feels peculiar and unexpected! No need to over furnish a bedroom that’s beaming in hues of blue – the color scheme alone will fill it up and give it a self-sufficient appearance! The unmistakable elegance of a blue bedroom mixed with white and cream elements is one that embodies the philosophy of modern minimalism! A dark blue bedroom with plain walls, clean shapes and gray bed is a perfect contemporary “sleeping cave” for anyone who wishes to rest in a room that channels the feeling of being deep underwater. For a truly dynamic and diverse bedroom, mix up different hues of blue. Darker shades are ideal for the area with your bed, while brighter ones are more appropriate for a designated workspace!
