Despite popular belief, true modern homes do not follow popular trends. Modern houses focus on structural simplicity, order and functionality — monochromatic walls, basic materials and clean architectural lines are the foundation. This style includes minimalist and Bauhaus spaces, as well as grid-like glass houses. Modern interior design emphasizes strong lines, a lack of ornamentation and minimal texture; it uses straightforward furniture and dramatic modern art to complement the stark architecture. In a modern house, lighting is a key structural element that accentuates planes and highlights focal points. Modern design is often a love-it or hate-it style — many appreciate its minimalist, uncluttered feel, while others miss the warmth and variety found in other styles.
