Add splashes of black and metallic to lift the modern element.
Black framed windows create drama and a sense of urbanity.

Add splashes of colour through artwork, books and cushions.
Inner Urban is about open living, so ensure there is a connection through adjacent spaces. Take the feature colour from a piece of artwork and reuse this as a highlight in kitchen furnishing, a dining chair or splashback.
