INTERIOR TRENDS | Unveiling the Italian Modernico Style

If you are looking for something original and unpredicted, you will be for sure inspired by the Modernico Italian style trend. 

 

Far from the Scandinavian minimalistic approach and way different from bohemian atmospheres, Modernico overcomes all limits and rules; it inspires a fusion of the ancient and the modern. 

 Modernico is a neologism that indicates a new Italian style and trend at the same time. Modernico brings together a mix and match of styles from different times within a contemporary minimalistic twist. 

Let’s dive into and find out how we can incorporate the new Modernico Italian style into our homes.
