With a modern interior, you can take your style in virtually any direction. Most people associate this style with a cool and austere look – but that needn't be the case. Use bright colours as accents or make a statement with bold accessories.

A look inside: Design duo Truly Truly

Design duo Truly Truly live directly under the roof of a 19th century building in Rotterdam. How did these two designers choose to furnish their home?

Contemporary living with character

We paid a visit to design duo Truly Truly in Rotterdam. The pair live directly under the roof of a 19th century building, combining the older elements of their home with modern influences such as a rug with an unusual design and bright colours. The sofa that the duo designed for IKEA is also a contemporary, eye-catching piece.

And taking of eye-catching: The old milk factory in Zeist where Saskia and Dioni live is a truly astonishing space. Over the course of two and a half years, the couple converted the building into their home — with a lot of help from family and friends. The space has very high ceilings, which makes interior design quite a challenge: How do you make sure that furniture is not swallowed up in such a large space?

A dream home in an old milk factory

If you're going to transform a dusty old milk factory into your dream home, you need a vision — and a lot of motivation. But once you've got started, you'll have a truly unique result. After 2.5 years of hard work — and a lot of help from family and friends — Saskia and Dioni can finally relax and enjoy their new home. Take a look inside!

A modern, multifunctional bedroom

You can also transform your bedroom into a haven of contemporary design. How? By combining practical elements with a sense of style. We show you how to give your bed a contemporary four-poster feel, create a relaxing reading corner, and ensure that you have plenty of storage for all your clothing. If you've got a spacious bedroom, add a table where you can really relax and practice all your creative pursuits. Just a word of warning, though: There's a good chance you'll never want to leave your bedroom again…
