While speaking to Briefly News, architect and interior designer, Erwan Kabwita gave some professional pointers on how to give your house a modern look.

"Start with a base of neutral colours like white, black, grey, and beige. These shades create a calm and sophisticated backdrop. Add pops of bold colours like navy, emerald green, or deep red through accessories, artwork, or statement furniture pieces," he shared.

For furniture, Erwan suggests that clean lines and smooth surfaces are perfect for giving the home that modern feel.

"Avoid overly ornate pieces. Choose functional designs like storage ottomans and extendable tables," he added.

Incorporate natural materials like wood, leather, and metal, as well as sleek options like glass and chrome. The interior designer advised people to stick to minimal patterns and solid colours for textiles, mixing rich textures like wool and silk for cushions and rugs.

"Maximise natural light with large windows and use a variety of ambient, task, and accent lighting. Select contemporary art and sculptures complemented by modern planters with greenery and opt for hardwood floors or polished tiles, using simply designed area rugs to define spaces."
