In the West, Modern interior design refers to a design movement popularised between the 1920s and 1950s. In our local context, Modern is synonymous with Contemporary. Hence, it refers to trends and styles that are popular now. In some cases, you can even bring in futuristic elements to accentuate the theme.

Plain or muted colours are best suited for this theme. Keeping to the same colour or not more than two colours is the key to successful execution. Choosing an accent colour for your furniture and other accessories will easily create a focal point for your home.

Shapes and materials are fundamental to modern furniture. Oftentimes, circular shapes and square lines are used to present the modern image. To soften the edge of these sharp designs, high quality soft surfaces such as genuine leather and plush cushions provide comfort and add charm to these furniture pieces.

Many Modern design looks take inspiration from swanky five-star hotels. From imported marble flooring to wide view windows, no effort is spared in making the home look posh and comfortable, just like in a high-end hotel. This can also be exemplified by giving your bathroom a luxurious look with ambient lighting, scented candles in beautiful jars and other accessories.

Space Saving Features
Modern design has to be clean and bare. If you need lots of storage space, choose furniture that provides cover-up for your belongings. For instance, cabinets under your bathroom vanity counter top, pull-out drawers under your bed or use a storage bed instead, chests and dressers strategically placed in different parts of the house, etc, can all contribute to a Modern look.

Light fixtures play a major role in giving your home that updated modern appeal. The designs can be as simple or intricate as you want them to be. From sleek and chic styles to those with innovative designs or a famous designer’s touch, the lightings you choose can either juxtapose the furniture or play a complementary role.
