Keep It Clean and Simple
Modern design is known for its simplicity and clean lines. Less is more, so don’t clutter up your table or yard with too many elements. Keep your canvas clean and let a few showpieces really make a statement. Remember, modern style doesn’t have to be austere, so make the atmosphere comfortable and inviting. The flickering flame of the TIKI® Brand Clean Burn™ Firepieces
is always a warm and welcoming sight for guests.
Mix and Match
Another way to take the harsh edge off of modern décor is to mix and match elements. Contrast harsh edges with round, fluid lines. Soften blocks of color with a few simple patterns. Don’t have too many cold, metal objects around the patio or backyard. Offset metals with natural materials like wood and stone. Modern style can be experimental, so have fun and explore.
Part of displaying modern style can be displaying a modern mindset, too. While you’re enjoying the outdoors with friends and family, practice eco-friendly behavior. Skip the cooler filled with plastic water bottles in favor of attractive pitchers filled with ice water. Use tabletop linens and accent pieces made of recycled materials. Save energy by turning off inside lights when you’re outside. And fill your TIKI® Brand torches with Clean Burn™ Torch Fuel
. It has a plant-based formula that produces less soot and smoke than petroleum-based torch fuels.
