Classical art & sculpture steal centrestage in these three modern home interiors, adding time transcending attraction and intrigue. The art pieces instill character into their modern surroundings, build culture, and create a worldly, sophisticated air. One of our home tours combines these classical art pieces with a colourfully eclectic setting in Manhattan, where huge and luxurious rooms brim with decadence. Our second home tour unfolds under dramatic archways that frame a meeting of modern furniture, contemporary lighting, and traditional mural painting. Finally, the third home design we will tour edges us into the future, where classic art becomes the backdrop for an eye-catching futuristic kitchen design and unique geometric furniture and accessories.

The rectilinear form has dominated our modern homes for a long stretch but it’s curvilinear forms that more closely emulate our natural environment.

These two contemporary home designs embrace and meld curves into highly polished settings, where crisp minimalist design rules. Clean linearity is ever present but the softness of rounded furniture silhouettes and racetrack-shaped decor elements bring comforting balance to each scheme. Here, we’ll explore inspiration for the rounded form in luxury living rooms, peaceful bedrooms and chic modern bathrooms.

However, a boldly creative colour combination will fashion a much stronger connection through a modern interior, just like the two intriguing home designs we feature here today.
