Honorable Mention: Modern White + Wood Apartment

For a warm take on a modern white apartment, designer Lauren Rubin outfitted each space with light wood accents. Furniture in vivid reds and blues pop against the neutral walls, as well as provide cozy spaces for lounging.

Modern Open Concept Living Space

In the living room, a rose-colored velvet sofa serves as a whimsical statement piece. Thonet style bentwood chairs surround an oval dining room table under a modern, white pendant light.

Modern Great Room

Bright red and pink accents break up this blonde wood-dominated space. To maximize the space, a hidden door in the wood paneling leads to the enclosed master bedroom.

Modern Sitting Area

Two, bright red chairs and a playful, modern print of an apple add whimsy and color to this neutral space. A white fur rug brings warmth and contrasting texture to the sitting area.

Open Concept Modern Kitchen

Without a high gloss finish, the natural wood grain of these cabinets shines through, contrasting with the white walls. Bright blue barstools add a pop of color to the neutral kitchen.

Modern Girl's Bedroom

White walls are the perfect blank canvas for colorful art and pillows. Although minimalistic, this Scandinavian style girl's bedroom boasts plenty of charming elements, like the gold chandelier, white fur rug and graphic throw pillow.

Modern White Bathroom

White tile and a light-colored wood floating vanity make this small bathroom feel brighter and bigger than it is. A glass shower panel opens up the space even more.
