ELEGANT MODERN HOME – If you have ever struggled putting an interior design together then my advice would be to consider Natural colors with soft tones as these add natural beauty to your home. You simply cannot go wrong as these produce a cooling, relaxing and airy atmosphere that commands very little attention but has the ability to make the entire home look warm, inviting and above all elegant.
Below is a home that has taken to heart the use of natural colors throughout and in the process has produced an elegant modern home that many folks would love to live in. Take a very careful look through all the photographs and I am sure some, if not all, will provide you with some inspirational ideas that you can easily incorporate into your home.

I personally think that outside dinning is a wonderful experience. Note the beautiful decking color that contrasts distinctly from the interior. Both the interior and exterior are brought together with the use of the huge sliding patio doors.
The exterior fireplace feature is also wonderful and I would suspect that this would provide a real spectacle during the evening dining which would only add to the overall experience of dining outside.
The open plan design works extremely well with the use of a light natural wooden floor. To provide character and that rustic appeal the designers have opted for a cow hide rug which really does break up the expanse of the flooring.
I’ve said this so many times, but look closely at the artwork on the wall. Contemporary art and Abstract art can work wonders for a modern / contemporary interior – it simply adds bright color where you would not expect it and fills the room with a really chic look.
Note how well the natural colors work throughout the home and blend so well with the modern furnishings. Each area just oozes brilliant design ideas, such as the contemporary light fittings or the wonderful deep brown leaf pattern cushions that just enhance the overall effect of the natural theme.
This has to be one of the nicest hallways I have seen in a long time. Again, everything is natural, from the stone clad wall, to the beautiful use of the Dusty Blue stair wall, which just re-enforces the boldness of the thick, chunky timber stair treads. The use of the large bolts holding the glass stair wall simply adds to the overall effect.
Before you leave, closely look at how well the blue and magnolia walls blend and how well the stone clad wall ties the two together. Be careful not to miss the subtleties of the flower arrangement in the divine stainless steel vases or the large rustic, earthen vase under the stairs that just adds so much character to the area.
If you ever wondered how to create a stunning entrance hall then the above has to be one of the most perfect examples of brilliant interior design I have ever had the privilege to view.
You probably noticed the contemporary light fitting above the stairwell – yes it is imposing and it’s meant to be that way. It adds such an interesting feature to the overall interior design and fits in so well with the modern look of the home.
One of the things I like about the interior of this elegant modern home is the fact that the interior designers have not overlooked what they wanted to achieve – that is an elegant modern home that looks completely natural. This has all been achieved through a lot of natural lighting, the use of natural colors and materials. Finally to re-enforce and tie the whole design together the designers included elements, such as those beautiful pots in the bottom left of the photograph. That’s what I call a well planned interior design.
No matter where you go in this home it all ties together with the use of the natural colors. I really like the idea that the bed wall is painted a deep brown which just sets off the entire room.
Another great feature to the interior design is this wonderful walk-in dressing room. Who would not want this in their home?
The bathroom is just stunning with the clever use of a modern bathroom suite, glass, natural floor tiling and that beautiful wall tiling. The use of the mirrors is also a very good idea as mirrors will always give the appearance of space, even in the smallest of rooms.
Did you like this wonderful elegant modern home? I do hope so and I hope that it has provided you, as intended, with lots of inspirational ideas for your own home.
