I think I'm having a design identity crisis. For as long as I can remember, I've been drawn to gorgeous, clean-lined modernism. If you're here, I'm sure most of you love modern home style. I prefer monochromatic palettes, beautiful wood finishes, and a few well chosen accents. I've always loved how calming and neutral it felt, while still seeming really hip and livable. But lately, I've been drawn to a more updated "traditional with a twist" style. Granted, we're not talking Shaker chairs or anything like that, but definitely a more buttoned up feel, with pieces that get their inspiration from antiques or old classics. Lots more patterns. Way more rattan. What's happening to me? Luckily, there's a way to do both if you're somewhere in the middle like I am...   Robert Abbey Ventana Brass Sconce  | Kichler Modern Sconce It's created a bit of a design conundrum at home, that's for sure. In fact, there are a few areas of our apartment that I'm guessing will sit semi-unfinished for a while as I sort through this crisis. But in the meantime, I wanna know -- which style do you prefer? Modern sconces like these above look great on any wall, whether your style goal is modern or more transitional.   Carnegie Abbott Cigar Club Chair  | Jericho Modern Bonded Leather Chair Leather lounge chairs look great in any home décor style!   Girard Brass Floor Lamp  | Camber Modern Arc Floor Lamp Arc floor lamps have to be the best way to achieve a modern look for any space.
