Stuck between a classic and modern feel? Get mixing the two and create a classic modern living space. It’s easy to achieve a modern look with neutral coloured walls and bold furnishings, but to add character, why not go for a herringbone flooring design?

Designflooring: Use traditional skinny planks, and place them in an eye-catching herringbone design for a timeless classic modern floor design.

Check out our design team’s top tips and tricks below to learn how you can inject classic modern living into your home.

Bright & bold colour: It’s the use of colour that really pulls this look together. Choose bold, colourful accessories, paired with neutral white walls adorned with colourful prints. We’re loving burnt orange at the moment. It works in any interior space and adds a warm and welcoming feeling.

Modern furnishings: Clean-lined furniture such as this simple coffee table and neutral coloured sofa helps retain a modern look.

Personalisation: Add personality to your herringbone floor with a keyline (as above) or tramline border. Use borders to define your living space and create a smart and slick finish.

Mix old and new: This look can also be achieved by mixing classic, statement pieces against more contemporary pieces. Such as our traditional Da Vinci Florence Mid Oak planks (shown below) paired with a large modern canvas painting and statement pieces such as the armchair and wooden clock. As you can see, burnt orange makes an appearance here as well (we really do love it).
