Classic Modern Homes
Leading interior trends always follow industrial, contemporary and classic modern influences. Classic modern interior is always in style and time and time again, classic modern homes are enhanced with little touches that make for a characterful and timeless home.
The stillness of calm, classic, modern interior provides a place for being completely quiet, clearing the mind of thoughts whilst surrounded in total tranquillity.
Not only is classic modern interior relaxing and tranquil, it is also modest. No matter the size of your home or space, classic modern homes can look wonderful in a home of any size. There are no distractions, there’s nothing fussy about it and it unapologetically boasts a statement without being fierce. It offers freshness and a consistent “clean” feel, which is important for a tidy mind. When we are surrounded by clutter our minds cannot pause or stop thinking, so a de-cluttered home provides space to enjoy not only stillness in your décor but stillness in your mind.
To recap: Choose unfussy, stillness, calm with few distractions when designing your home and always remember classic modernity is modest, fresh, timeless, straight forward and subtle in design, yet impactful.
