What are the most popular homes on the Real Living website? We've noticed that our readers are really interested in homes featuring modern interpretations of traditional styles! If you mix modern elements with old-fashioned details, you will have a space that looks clean, but, still has character and personality

If you would like to have a modern home with interesting touches, you should invest in basic furniture pieces with neutral colors like white, beige, or gray. Brighten up the space with colorful furnishings and decor.
