Graphic splashes of color and bold accents bring a modern edge to this Spanish apartment. I love how the classic modernist furniture mingles with the traditional wall moldings in bright all-whites. The simple decor makes powerful statements, and warm wood and gray add warm textures. The detailing of the architecture in white keeps things classic and create the perfect canvas for simple, selective decor. I absolutely love this place – it feels so clean but has so much character. Its simplistic palette pushes each piece of decor into the spotlight, with emphasis on the interesting shape and texture.

This may be one of my favorite dining rooms I’ve shared on TS so far. Simple and understated, but with a spotlight on a dramatic golden wall embellishment and the beautiful detailing on the table. Also, this mix of dining chairs is fantastic!

This simple white shelving unit is packed with color to create a barrier between the living room and kitchen. I love the cheerful assortment of ceramic pieces and books.

The floating headboard and leaning floor mirror add sophisticated bespoke touches to this bedroom. And the gray and blue palette is so serene!

Would you ever take such a simple approach to your own decor? It definitely puts a spotlight on the pieces you use!
