Modern homes. That's a sentence that really crams a lot into it without disclosing too much information. What constitutes a modern home, after all? Well, we've taken a look at what some of the best interior designers have been creating in terms of contemporary living spaces and we've cottoned onto a few key themes, which we're going to share with you today!
