Get Cozy With Organic Modern Style

When you close your eyes and picture the perfect space for feeling at ease, it’s no surprise you might be thinking of the family room. It’s a warm and welcoming place where memories are made, and everyone feels at home. As we’re looking for ways to give this sacred space the style it deserves, we’re taking a look at how the organic modern trend is taking over.

What is Organic Modern?

We’re warming up to a look that doesn’t belong to one design style, but three. When the clean lines of modern decor and the natural elements of bohemian design come together, they create a unique look. It’s a pairing that’s cozy and inviting, making it the perfect fit for family rooms and living rooms. Add a dash of minimalism to create an organic modern space where beauty and function go hand in hand.

Achieving the Look

Simple shapes and sleek silhouettes are the foundation of any modern style. When you’re looking for a softer touch, throw pillows and woven knits create an inviting and elevated combination. For an extra dose of earthy charm, bring the outdoors in. Adding greenery is one of the quickest ways to breathe life into your room.

Organic Modern Hues

Think of your palette as the glue that binds these different looks together. The crisp, clean lines of modern interiors are instantly softened when they’re paired against a backdrop of warm neutral shades. Mystical Shade, Hushed Auburn and Angora are hues that embrace these styles for a space that’s light, natural and unencumbered. For a nod to your modern side, pair these soft colors with crisp whites or cool blues to add subtle contrast.

    • Is the paint color on the window trim Snowbound? I love these colors and am considering using them all when I remodel my house in the spring.

  2. Hello
    I’m moving into a small condo and would like one color throughout. On Pinterest I saw a SW color: approachable gray. Is it still available? If so, please send number and some similar color ideas. I would like to paint some furniture with SW pro classic paint.
    I would like a few color suggestions to contrast lighter walls that work well.

      Hi Margaret, Pinterest is a great resource, but does not always have the most accurate information. No such paint color exists – for any paint manufacturer. We have some names that are close. Look at Amazing Gray SW 7044, Agreeable Gray SW 7029, Anew Gray SW 7030.

  3. I just love the color UPWARD and have it in my kitchen. The problem is, now I am going to paint the dining room and need a color that can complement UPWARD – any suggestions? I’m not big on beiges though.
