Statement Ceilings with Modern Masters

Pinterest recently shared their Top 100 Trends to try for in 2018, and among their recommendations was making the fifth wall a distinct design feature. The term ‘statement ceilings’ was up 310% in their saves and they shared that, “A statement ceiling can transform a room from the top down with bold paint, striking wallpaper or intricate texture”. We are wholeheartedly behind the call to ‘top it off’ and have seen many gorgeous statement ceilings created with Modern Masters. Here are a few of our recent faves!

The Warm Allure of Copper

Copper Decorating Ideas and Inspiration | Modern Masters Cafe BlogCopper has such rich, alluring tones that it’s made it a haute 2015 color trend for Interior Design.  It’s a fascinating color that works perfectly with neutral schemes and is a great metallic to add as a splash of color, working equally well with golds, silvers and bronzes.  There are variations of copper in both color and textures in many of our Modern Masters products and we’d thought we’d share some of them with you.

Color Expert Maria Killam recently attended the High Point Furniture Market in October and came away with Coppers and Golds being one of her favorite takeaway trends. She feels they “add a sophisticated feel to furnishings and accessories”.  Designer Cheryl Hucks also attended the Market and noted that for 2015, “copper will the be the newest trend in metallics”.  Several journalists covered the market as well and one noted that “[Copper]…added sparkle to dozens of showrooms and displays, from painted walls to lighting fixtures.” Be sure to look for more of this luscious color in upcoming design features and projects – but we’d love to know what YOU think of Copper.
