If you’re in the market for a modern mansion or you’re just looking for inspiration, you’re in the right place. From the outside, modern homes often have a structured boxy look with large windows. Oftentimes, architects will use materials like steel, concrete, and plenty of glass to create a sleek, luxe look.
Inside, you’re likely to find an open layout where the living room flows into the kitchen, dining room, or entertainment space. Colors tend to be very neutral, frequently featuring black and white. Fixtures, lighting, and kitchen design is typically simple and sleek. The key to modern mansions is minimalism, sleek lines, and fewer standout features.
While we all may not be able to afford the mortgage payment on one of these mesmerizing mansions, we can definitely enjoy their stunning architecture and interior design. Here’s 6 modern mansions to swoon over.
