Period Properties VS Modern Homes

Posted by | December 14, 2015 | Modern Homes | No Comments

PenthouseProperties are often placed into one of two categories – modern or traditional. The architecture and the exterior of a building usually reflects the style inside the property, so it’s important to understand the design of a home and what décor is suitable. For example, grand, period properties call for traditional furnishings and an old world style, whereas you’d expect a luxury penthouse to have a minimalistic feel to the interior design.

Whether you prefer the contemporary or the traditional style, we’ve selected some of the nation’s most luxurious properties on sale right now, especially in the South of England. How would you decorate each room? Do you fall in love with period properties or contemporary chic apartments? Take a look and see what you could be living in…
