Basic colours such as white, grey and brown are still widely used in modern inspired decor when combined with natural materials such as wood, rattan, and bamboo.

Lighting in the modern style and decor
Lighting is one of the most important finishes to your interior, so including minimalist forms in combination with wood, rattan and even gold is often popular. However, we attach more importance to the overall appearance of our homes by mainly showing it through lighting. Indirect lighting has become increasingly important in modern decor this year as it gives a warm and atmospheric effect to a white or beige wall.
