Crisp white walls and pale grey infusions make a serene life setting, especially when cast alongside the natural beauty of wood. Here, our four featured home designs employ smooth grey, white and wood decor to create an air of elegance within luxe modern open plan living spaces. The peaceful palette has been combined with stylish furniture, textured finishes and easy flowing layouts to create tasteful layers. The atmosphere of prevailing calm unites pale grey lounge spaces, contemporary oak and walnut kitchen designs and polished modern dining spaces. We’ll also look over one inspirational bathroom design, fashionable modern wall panelling, creative room dividers and an interior with en vogue architectural archways.
