Hustle, excitement and a fast paced, on-the-go lifestyle. The Midtown Modern trend describes when you want to savor every moment of each day that goes by — work hard to play hard. City living can sometimes move faster than we want it to, so this is an opportunity to turn your place into a modern space that allows for a moment of pause.

Live a "rich," urban lifestyle by implementing saturated hues like black or navy. Accent with a bright brass statement piece or any metal finish that you desire for that special sparkle. Plush fabrics like velvet, wool and satin can help elevate the vibe.
Project: Geometric Wall Mural
Sara Davis took inspiration from the 2023 Design Trend "Midtown Modern" to refresh her home with a unique accent wall.
