Questions for Kimo: How do you  describe "Dutch Modern"? -Julie M.

Dutch Modern or Neo-Plasticism,  is one of my personal favorite design styles. I would describe it as Brady Bunch meets Bauhaus. Lots of bright primary colors and crisp clean lines. In it's infancy back in the 1920's it was more angular like a Modrian painting. Today it is a little more organic but Geometric, none the less. funky textures and geometric patterns. Overall it's very vibrant and tres modern. It's a style that's been applied to everything from furniture to coffee grinders and it would seem quite common place in George Jetson's world.

HHMMM, Never heard of Dutch Modern before. Does it involve wearing the wooden clogs?

Frankly, I wish we saw more of this style approach with staging. I'm a sucker for the mid-century modern, Scandinavian aesthetic.

And you're right about it being more organic these days. So many people associate modern design with cold, hard lines---but in actual fact, it can be incredibly warm.

I love how today's style makers are mixing old with new --- like a wood harvest table with white plywood chairs.

 Look no further than mags like dwell and domino, or blogs like design sponge to see evidence of this fresh no approach to interior design.

Now if only the local furniture rental places would catch on... or I strike it rich and have my own warehouse full of the stuff.

Oops, that was me that left the previous comment. I hadn't logged in...

 and I'll take this opportunity to address the above typo. 2nd last para, that would be fresh NEW approach, not fresh NO approach.
