the modern life concept house

Elle Decor invited 10 "designers to watch" to decorate rooms in two Manhattan condos and wouldn't you know it, they are fabulous! The designers each teamed with a retailer to execute their vision. Here are a few of my favorite rooms...

With the help of Room&Board, Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller created this bright retro-modern living room.

This living room by San Francisco designer Beth Martin and Calligaris is exactly what I'm envisioning for my next place. I LOVE the gray couch and wood accents. 

Oliver M. Furth created this study using USM modular furniture. I like that he didn't take the word "study" too literally... not every study needs to have mahogany and leather-bound books. :)

This kitchen by Katie Lydon and Bosch is a lovely classic twist on modern... a lot of people find modern to be stark and cold, but this is a good example of "warm modern".

And finally, this GORGEOUS patio designed by Rafael de Cardenas and Extremis... so creative and interesting!
