One of the more informal types of elements known in modern interior design is asymmetrical balance of shapes. This is also a style that has been proven to be more difficult and complex as it looks at the first sight. When it comes to placing various objects in any interior space, in terms of asymmetrical balance, objects with a diverse visual weight are placed in such a way that they essentially balance one another around a singular fulcrum point in the space.

Pictured above, a playful balance of shapes in various sizes scatter all throughout the room. From the straight, vertical assets of the drapes to the edgy style of the straircase, the balance is cohesively asymmetrical.

Light can be designed in one of two ways: natural and artificial. It’s also one of the many elements of modern space interior design that is important in terms of achieving an amount of harmony within an interior space of any kind. Light is also something that can affect the overall visual perception of an interior element and space in general, making it catch attention over a particular area.

In modern styling, the essence of light is significant as it gives vibrancy in any room. As shown in the bathroom layout, task and accent lighting fixtures are designed in specific areas to give life to the room.

Another important element of modern interior design is the element of emphasis, which, in simple terms, talks about the main focal point of an interior space. This is that point of a room where someone’s eye will be caught by a specific piece of furniture, an accessory, or even a particular design. Whatever the object is, it should always be emphasized with elements of interior design such as form, line, texture, and color. 

In this setting, the focal point of the modern family home has definitely got to be the two-seater swing by the terrace area. It's no other ordinary bench or outdoor seating furniture, but it's a fun and quirky swing tossed with comfy cushions for a relaxing spot by the terrace.

Colors are the most noticeable elements in a room as it brings life to the interiors and creates depth and character. For modern styling, not much of loud colors are needed to be offered on the table. Subtle neutral colors are first on the list, followed by tones of whites and greys that balance out the palette. Black and rich browns also add contrast and formality to the style, which is why most modern home designs feature a lot of these shades. A pop of bold color or two may be featured in modern styling, but it can lead more to the complimentary approach of interior designing.
