Sugar pink accents sweeten the soft grey interior of this modern family home, where layers of geometric pattern layer in interest and energy. Visualised by Nata Bo, this is a precisely customised living space where bespoke cabinetry increases the usable area by bridging furniture, filling gaps and encasing corners. Uplifting colour accents and upbeat pattern build a playful vibe across this inviting interior, not least inside the kid’s room. In this space, pops of pink are swiftly switched out for a starry blue decor palette and a superhero theme, although the gusto for custom furniture remains.

Washington’s mayor granted several television interviews from her home in Colonial Village in 2018, all in the wake of adopting her baby daughter, Miranda Elizabeth.

Simple, relaxed and welcoming, this pair of modern home interiors build comfort through soft grey, white and wood decor. The two designs achieve balance between the crisp cool of monochrome and the textural warmth of wood tone in two different styles. On one hand there is an airy minimalist layout with bespoke fitted furniture, wood slatted dividing walls, and a laid-back low key feel – a place where family and friends can come lounge without ceremony and children play without borders. Home interior number two is packed a little more generously with home decor items, many of which have a more traditional flavour mixed with modernity, and lustrous golden touches.
