Recognizing modernism layouts is actually very easy because they all consist of simplicity and sleekness. These features summarized in the following:

  • Neutral and airy color palettes.
  • Relaxing vibes created with neutral hues and natural lighting.

  • Clean lines.
  • Usage of materials such as leather, glass, stainless steel, and dark wood.
