It should have light and light furniture, light upholstery, especially on sofas, as well as fresh textiles such as cotton or linen. As for construction materials, smooth surfaces, light floors (whether they are flooring or porcelain), and light furniture.
2. IT’S OKAY TO RISK A LITTLE
A modern house takes a lot of courage when choosing the furniture. You can put some design icons and be daring with the pieces you choose and all of a sudden include an antique piece. Being a bit transgressive, for me, is modern. The furniture with very straight lines and very clean, without moldings, they also look good in modern environments. And a lot of white in contrast to the black. Floors, in large format, if it is wood or stone, too.
3. IF YOU ARE GOING TO GET INVOLVED IN RENOVATIONS, JOIN SPACES!
