It’s been a strange year and the uncertainty shows no signs of stopping as we head into 2021. In times like these, it’s important to focus on what really matters: family, comfort, and good tidings.
Despite the unique challenges we’ve all faced these past months, we’re thrilled to share that Modern Komfort had our best year yet! Since we first opened our shop doors in 2018, we’ve been proud to share our passion for creating beautiful spaces that work for the whole family, and we’re grateful for everyone who’s trusted us to help them create a home that reflects their vision in this unusual year. We’re so proud of our hardworking team and look forward to inspiring even more beautiful spaces in 2021.
We could all use some comfort, joy, and inspiration with which to fill our cups before we continue on and face the coming year. If creating a cozier home environment and hunkering down with your family has helped you fortify yourself against the challenges of 2020, join us as we celebrate our 2nd anniversary and reflect on some of our favourite Instagram posts from this year.
Here we go!
1. A dreamy dining room makeover
This delightful dining room makeover by Jo Galbraith, creator of @jogalbraithathome, struck a chord with over 700 of our followers. Stylish and summery, this warm modern cottage aesthetic creates a cozy dining area for family memories to be made.
2. The perfect spot to spend some downtime
Designed by Jenna Holland of Holland Homes NB, this modern cottage uses dark, dramatic hues to complement its ample light, open space. These comfortable furniture and accessory pieces allow you to feel snug and warm without that boxed in feeling cozier layouts can inspire.
3. A comfy cloud in a gorgeous space
Erin Conway from @kismethouse inspires us with a warm, comfortable place to lounge and unplug after a day of remote working. In this living room, you can curl up on your couch with a good book, a candle, a glass of wine or cup of tea (or whatever beverage you prefer).
4. A surf side print in a warm and inviting room
Do you want to lounge in comfort and dream of summer? Stare at the beach and feel the sea breeze on your skin well into the depths of December? Envision yourself in a living room like this one by Brianne Penney from @boneill_athome. You can make it happen with some small additions to your current setup, such as new artwork and some comfy throw pillows.
5. The transformation of a new home
Jo Galbraith’s dining room makeover was an absolute hit on Instagram, so here it is again from a new angle. Bench seating combined with traditional dining chairs, a simple and beachy colour palette, and a beautifully braided pendant lamp create an eating area capable of hosting a number of different styles of events, from intimate family-only meals to potentially larger soirees.
6. A welcoming space to keep family traditions alive
Lita of XO Frankie at Home shared with us this gorgeous dining room space she created using some of our favourite dining chairs and a modern pendant update to the traditional chandelier. This cozy space is well-suited to family dinners and evenings with friends.
7. A bright and crisp bathroom makeover
This beautiful bathroom makeover by our Modern Komfort team gives us some great ideas for our own homes. Who doesn’t love the look of a clean, modern bathroom with spectacular, bright lighting? This makeover expertly provides a calming space to start and finish your day.
8. Sideboard styling at its finest
If the houseplant craze has hit your home, you’re not alone. Many people found themselves the proud parent of a succulent or six this year, and nothing compliments greenery in your home like natural accents and wood furniture. Our Kara sideboard, made with mango wood, cane, and iron helps to create the perfect backdrop for your pothos, snake plants, and succulents.
9. Warm winter vibes
Along with the seasons, our homes change throughout the year. As we move into winter, don’t be afraid to embrace the greys and pale blues of the season. These cool tones can create a lovely and surprisingly inviting colour palette, especially when they’re paired with warm accents like our Mitchell ottoman, and they act as the perfect neutral backdrop for more festive decorations.
10. One of the coziest spots around
Tanya at House of Six Interiors created this delightfully warm and inviting living room. Whether curling up with a book, a cat, and a cup of tea, sitting down with friends or—let’s be honest—taking a nap on that incredible couch, this living room is the very picture of modern home comfort.
With all of us spending more time at home than ever, the way our indoor spaces look and feet has become more important. Whether you undertook a complete renovation, added a few small pieces and plants, or simply gathered inspiration with the intention of redecorating later, the whole Modern Komfort team, thanks you for sharing your homes and inspirations with us. As we celebrate another year of business, we look forward to what 2021 has in store.
