A combination of greige, beige, and brown shades creates a calming interior decor scheme, but how does this muted palette translate into interesting, modern spaces? In this gallery of two contemporary home designs, we’ll witness neutral decor that is applied with modern flair. Our first featured home design is a contemporary apartment interior with an open-plan living space. Rich brown accents add depth to beige and white surroundings, while texture, form, and art build intrigue. Our second interior concept is a spacious apartment with chic furnishings and a high-end appeal. In this space, curves and arches add smooth elegance and fashion an inviting flow.

Inside our first featured home, a greige linear sectional sofa, a bordered area rug, and tonal wall art create a warm grouping against a fresh white backdrop. Scatter cushions, a round coffee table, and a unique leather chair bring in richer tones of brown.
LED perimeter lights define the edge of the lounge space with a cozy glow. Heavy drapes frame full-height windows.
A large indoor plant thrives beside the living room windows, growing a vibrant splash of greenery that reaches over the couch. Wall-mounted figurines make playful silhouettes across one wall, creating a unique focal point.
Opposite the sofa, a wall-mounted TV is flanked by two tasteful columns of display shelves. Decorative vases and books adorn the slimline stacks.
A marble pedestal dining table places a clean white accent against a wood-paneled feature wall. Black dining chairs encircle the white table with dark contrast.
Display shelving gives the dining area an interesting backdrop that also serves as useful storage. An elegant white pendant light is suspended high above the table, which helps to anchor it in the open-plan living room layout. See more ideas for dining room pendant lights.
In the master suite, a textured beige bedroom rug complements a wooden platform bed. The headboard ends against the wooden bedroom door to create one uninterrupted flow of smooth grain.
A decorative wall mirror is mounted tight against the ceiling line to create a precisely tailored aesthetic. Perimeter lights accentuate unique headboard wall decor.
A mirrored door slides across the fitted wardrobes, leaving garments partially on display. A bespoke desk/vanity table is situated by the window where it can benefit from natural light.
The bathroom is a place for unwinding. Neutral colors and soft lighting build a calming ambiance.
Backlit shelves glow gently inside the shower space. Reeded glass shower screens add texture and light play.
The vanity unit adds a moment of warm wood tone, which is repeated in the bathroom door. A custom-cut vanity mirror spans the full width of the wall.
The second bathroom carries a similar aesthetic. This time, a round mirror complements the circular vessel basin.
Indoor plants add a soothing natural element.
A wall-hung toilet leaves floor space clear, which makes the small room feel larger.

Our second modern home interior features a refined palette of beige, brown, and greige. Rounded silhouettes soften the contemporary essence of the home interior, creating a welcoming space with an easy flow.
A racetrack coffee table sits in front of a curvaceous sofa design. An assortment of glass vases creates an elegant centerpiece.
Two brown lounge chairs darkly flank the light sofa. An eye-catching floor lamp offers bright task lighting.
A plush living room rug lays out a subtle pattern. Behind the seating arrangement, a row of rotating panels lightly divides the living space. On the other side of the room divider, there is a dining room and a second lounge area.
The second lounge area is a cozily compact space with a U-shaped arrangement of curved sofas and chairs. A small tree breathes life into the compact area.
A round rug anchors the furniture arrangement and draws a tonal link with beige scatter cushions. Modern pendant lights are clustered above to create a sculptural point of interest. Fluted wall panels shape the perimeter of the small seating area, where they gently cradle linear wall sconces.
Nesting coffee tables form a center point between the sofas and barrel chairs, making this a small area into a comfortable, social hub. Small side tables nestle in between the chairs and couches to keep drinks close at hand.
A racetrack shaped dining table stands between the two lounge areas. Indoor plants inject greenery and life into the neutral dining room decor scheme.
Modern dining chairs seat up to eight people at the large dining table.
Arched motifs decorate a modern console table. A decorative vase, a small sculpture, and wall art fashion a rich brown and beige vignette above it.
The beige and brown upholstered dining chairs create a soft, tonal arrangement. Their black framework sets down a heavy visual anchor. A beige area rug adds a soft and welcoming feeling underfoot.
A small lamp and a glass vase filled with greenery provide the dining table centerpiece.
This comfortable seating area is furnished with a modern curved sofa design. The couch is set against a slatted backdrop under a decorative arch. Black linear wall sconces darkly flank the arch and a striking piece of monochrome artwork.
Opposite the curved couch, slatted wall panels create an attractive mount for a TV. A floating TV stand underscores the screen with a thin line of pale wood tone. LED perimeter lighting highlights the textured focal point.
