In this homify feature, we visit 6 stunning homes that are the epitome of elegance and modern design. So, if you're in the need of hints and tips to help with your interior design, then have a look at these lovely living rooms, simple dining spaces and gorgeous decor for inspiration.
In the modern home there is plenty of light, whether it be artificial or natural. In this living room we see gorgeous glazing emphasized by glamorous lighting and of course modern furniture in trendy colours. You can't go wrong with a window that incorporates sunshine throughout the space too.
Exposed brick walls decorating a living room in a retro inspired design may be the perfect option if you already have this canvas to work with. Include a few comfy sofas, an interior braai area and a decorative rug to complete your design. Don't forget to include some lovely scatter pillows while you're at it.
Here's another example of how lovely illumination can upgrade an interior. The dining room may be small, but its rich colour scheme is romantic and inviting, especially when paired with a brilliant glass dining table and fascinating floral arrangement.
A focal wall decorated in a textured wallpaper promises to add an opulent effect to a modern dining room, and with bright, eye-catching colours it may just be an attraction on its own.
Chandeliers in an eclectic kitchen are just the element to enhance the space perfectly. Complete the design with all-white counters and modern appliances, while a gabled ceiling ensures it looks authentic.
