Love modern design but also love the rustic charm of a colorful quilt? You don't have to choose one or the other, and you don't have to just stick to the bedroom to add a little quirky quilt love. These nine rooms have mastered the mix of modern design and colorful quilts, and they may give you inspiration for your own home this weekend!

A colorful patchwork quilt in a herringbone pattern hangs perfectly in a wall alcove, surrounded by a minimal array of modern, sleek furnishings.

More comforter than quilt, you can still see how a bold pattern goes perfectly with a floating platform bed and a cool concrete backdrop.

This patchwork denim quilt fits in with a room that isn't overly modern — there's beadboard on the wall, after all — but its unfussy, uncluttered array of furnishings and a bed with clean lines shows the versatility of quilts and how they can add to the modernism of a room, not just contrast it.

Combine a bold, colorful traditional quilt with a room with an equally bold color palette for quite the look.

This photo is from a tutorial for that modern neon simple light fixture, but it also proves that a small, compact quilt in just black and white can complement well with modern colors.

This is such a favorite photo and shows how you don't need to spend a lot of money on huge wall art; a bold, colorful quilt paired with two equally boldly colored chairs (okay with maybe a fun light fixture and rug thrown into the mix) is about the only thing you need in a white room to give it life and personality.

Nothing warms up the affordable Scandinavian subtly of IKEA furnishings like a warm quilt in a bunch of fun colors.

We're adding this Urban Outfitters photo into this post even though the room isn't terribly modern to prove that you can still afford really bold, bright quilts. Add something like this to your bedroom, or as shown above, hang it on the wall for an oversized piece of art that will steal the show!
