Styling Tips from a Stager | Bring Organic Modernism to Your Home

Alright, I'm putting my Stager hat on again + sharing with you my favorite tricks for making your home an organic modern oasis. It's a talent that we at The Platform Experiment literally experiment with everyday + we've found some tried + true tricks. I like to think of staging a home as bringing out the essence of a home + designing it the way the house was meant to be, in it's pure state. Minus the shoes strewn about the entry, muddy fingerprints on the doors + pet hair everywhere, a house has a true essence + staging captures it for a brief yet, beautiful moment in time.

That's not to say you can't implement staging tips + tricks into your own home! By utilizing these tips you can begin to draw some of that essence back into your space + create a lovelier more organic + beautiful space. At Platform we have a very distinct style + it happens to go right along with the heartbeat of my blog: organic, bohemian, modern + clean, so check it out below + enjoy!

8 tips for a modern + organic space

Soft + Hard Lines

When you take in your entire space make sure there's a balance present of hard + soft. Rectangular lines of the sofa + accent chair are softened by the round coffee table, poof + floor lamp. The dining area mixes rounded edges to soften the modern kitchen.

know your placement

Utilizing key places in your home will allow for an organic flow that feels natural + purposeful. Homes with modern lines + harsh angles are softened by curved furniture + appropriate placement. The rug above softens the space while not adding clutter.

old with the new

You've heard it before but, I'll tell ya again. Mixing + matching old furniture with modern is one of the best ways to achieve the organic modernism look. Make sure the woods are good quality + the stains go well together. These red woods are so divine.

have a magazine worthy moment

Have at least one moment in your house where you can sit, take in the moment + imagine it on the cover of your fave magazine. This moment perfectly incorporates modern lines with textured bohemian textiles + that moon poster...forget about it, so beautiful!

art that is fresh + modern

I love placing antique frames or artwork sparsely around the house but, the main art should be modern or better yet, organic + modern like these prints above! The colors are muted but graphic + the black frames stand out against the white backdrop.

wide open spaces

Natural textiles, colorful rugs, rattan pops + a mixed material coffee table lends for a feeling that is eclectic yet pulled together. Keeping space between all these elements, even in a small space, will make the pieces shine + the room will feel even bigger.

always edit ... then edit again

Whenever we style a home we usually go through 2 or 3 versions of whatever we may be styling, textiles, consoles or bookshelves. Give yourself time putting together your styling + the more you practice the better you'll get. For more styling tips check this out!

Layer it up

This is my most favorite part of any staging or styling project, the textiles!! Layer linen, satin, mud cloth, I really feel you can't go wrong with an eclectic yet, clean bed. Create the color story by choosing a base color, complimentary + a pop, then go to town!
