1. BEGIN WITH A SPECIFIC PLAN FOR A COLOR SCHEME
I like to play with textures and sparkles to help make the space evoke a feeling.
The very first step is to create a color palette. You can define this in a design board layout, in a rendering, or even in a painting or mixed media collage to define the overall feel of a space. I recommend sticking to a 4 color max color palette. From room to room, the design can evolve in other ways. In each room, you can create a sense of harmony.
2. LET THE GOLD HANG OUT
Metallic finishes already add plenty of sparkles, but the sheen will make a bigger impact and act as a focal point in a variety of colors. And combining these with natural elements for a modern and classy home decor scheme is the perfect way to transform your space.
Whether it’s a bright golden gilded wall, a copper-toned kitchen island, or even a shimmering silver chandelier, metallic accents have the power to completely transform a room.
For a modern and classy home decor that stands out, try mixing and matching different metallic colors and textures. Add a few touches of metallic accents here and there in the form of lamps, frames, cushions, or bedding, and you can easily bring your space up to date.
These touches of metallic goodness can be subtle and detailed, or bold and vibrant. Whatever your style, you’re sure to create a beautiful home that combines modern and classic elements. So don’t be afraid to let the gold hang out.
3. PUT INVESTMENT PIECES FRONT AND CENTER
Investment pieces are the key to creating a classic and timeless space. Though these pieces may cost a little more upfront, they’re often worth it in the end. Investing in quality pieces will save you time and money in the long run, as they’ll last longer than lower-priced items.
Consider a marble table, which is both modern and classy and can last a lifetime with proper care.
Other luxe pieces to consider include a classic chaise lounge, timeless artwork, and creamy velvet chairs. When it comes to modern and classy décor, don’t forget about the little details. These can often be the most impactful and make for a truly unique space. Add subtle reminders of the things you love, such as a collection of vintage books, a few candles, or some quirky throws and pillows. These accents will tie the whole room together and create a space that feels completely authentic and true to you.
I am also a fan of the Egg Chair design you can see below.

4. FAKE HEIGHT WITH LOW FURNITURE
Create strong verticals and avoid horizontals. Use low furniture so the room seems taller. For something extra special, try incorporating terrazzo into your decor as it has a timeless look and feel, as seen in this Ibiza chair pictured below.
5. WARM UP A ROOM & MAKE IT APPEAR LARGER WITH A MIRROR
Mirrors are a great way to give a room a modern and glamorous feel. They can also help your space appear bigger. Try adding some mirrored panels to warm up your room and make it look larger.
6. DON’T CUT YOUR BUDGET ON THE SOFA
Transform your living space with these modern and classy home decor ideas! Make a statement in your home that lasts a lifetime by investing in a timeless and quality sofa. An iconic look that will stay in style for years to come is the Chesterfield design. As a fan of tufted furniture, I am partial to the contrasting texture of leather and tufted surfaces, which creates a refined and stylish appearance.
If you want to make a bold, modern statement, why not mix and match different types of materials?
Try pairing a smooth leather Chesterfield sofa with a velvet armchair and a shaggy, purple rug. A well-crafted piece of furniture, plus the right combination of interesting textures, can elevate the look and feel of your living room in a way that is both eye-catching and sophisticated.
With some careful consideration, you can easily transform your living space into a modern and classy home decor paradise. Invest in quality furniture and accessories, and think outside of the box when it comes to adding details. Those small, subtle touches will make all the difference!
So, don’t skimp on the sofa – invest in a timeless design and the right fabrics, and your home decor will be transformed in no time!
7. PILE ON THE THROW PILLOWS FOR EXTRA LUXE
One pair of neutral color pillows looks skimpy. Use two pairs, in contrasting patterns, colors, and textures. Take a chance on small pillows, they look like something that came with the furniture.
8. GO DEEP WITH LAYERS IN SMALL SPACES
Small living spaces don’t have to feel cramped. When decorating your small space into a modern interior design masterpiece, you must be smart with your layout. Use space wisely and take advantage of your vertical storage options.
