Light and lovely, these five modern home interiors will leave you feeling peaceful, uplifted and refreshed. Beige, grey and white flow in harmonious union throughout open floor plans dashed with tactile timber elements and elegant modern furniture. Whilst clean and uncluttered, these contemporary spaces do not feel sparse. Each metre features subtle statements of chic design in textured panels, soft furnishings and modest decorative displays. Unique lighting designs become all the more prominent in the soft room schemes, like floating art. We’ll witness how the balance of intermittent dark decor accents shift the atmosphere of light decor schemes, and how natural wood tone feeds the welcoming energy of a modern home.

Although furniture is minimal here, added interest is introduced in the form of textured wood panelling and smoother planes. A rounded square coffee table brings the woodtone element to the floor of the white lounge, on a carpet of palest grey. A matching square side table stands between a pair of modern lounge chairs.
Wooden volumes section the floor plan into dedicated areas of use. A bespoke wooden bookcase divides the lounge from the dining room. The wood grain bulk is mirrored on the opposite side of the space by floor to ceiling timber kitchen cabinets.
Modern dining room pendant lights arc over the formal dining area.
Open sided shelves give glimpses of the neighbouring space.
A beige rug warms a basic white bedroom floor. A slatted headboard feature wall adds character to the blank white walls.
A bedroom chair, side table and lamp make a reading spot by the windows.
Swirls of soft smoky grey engulf the bathroom, with sections of woodtone to complete the home’s cohesive decor scheme. Atmospheric light glows around the modern bathroom vanity and a custom cut mirror.
