Warmth exudes from these three modern home interiors, through rich brown and grey colour palettes, natural wood tone and soft lighting. Such a palette feels like a hug to come home to, or an inviting blanket to snuggle up in. However, there is nothing remotely fluffy about these homes. These are spaces that are shaped by contemporary furniture choices, ultra stylish accessories, cutting edge appliances and superb lighting designs. These are abodes for the discerning homeowner who has impeccable taste and a budget to complement it. Designer pieces and collectable art dot these warming scenes of comforting sanctuary, creating reposeful balance between a passion for the creative and a need for sanctum.
A curved modern sofa hugs the lounge area of home number one, next to an Easy armchair designed by Pierre Jeanneret for his cousin Le Corbusier who designed the city of Chandigarh, India in the 1950s. AD has an interesting backstory for the curious.
Behind the curved sofa, a panda print and a KAWS sculpture bring art to the interior. The sculptural element continues in the form of a carved wooden side table and a unique coffee table.
Bespoke furniture fills the lounge with more light wood tone, which creates soft harmony with pale grey furniture elements, matching window drapes and a silver grey area rug.
Pieces of nature infiltrate the modern scheme in the form of decorative dried wheat, loose pine cones and cut logs.
A low hanging dining room pendant light emits a subtle glow over the modern dining set, along with a sleek track lighting system.
LED shelf lights cast a gentle glow across the kitchen diner wall.

Taupe drapes dress the large window and a leafy green view.
The TV wall is a custom created run of cabinetry in duotone wood. The darker framing complements a dark wood ceiling treatment that washes across the whole open plan.

The green furniture and accessories are inspired by a beautiful little courtyard area to one side of the kitchen island, where a small tree reaches up to the skylight from a pebble bed.

A Cesta dimmable table lamp lights up a low level bedside table, and the gentle folds of sheer window drapes.
The two bedroom window seats look just too comfy to resist, and separate nooks mean there will be no arguing about how far to pull the shades for best reading comfort.

An Eames bird peers out of a narrow wood effect bookcase by the desk, as though it might flutter onto the leaves of the house plants.
