    Ali, the person behind Call It Desin, created it out of personal passion. "I started getting into modern design when I wanted to renovate my 1-bedroom apartment," Ali told Bored Panda. "I myself try to avoid the extra fluff, that's why I started digging into modern design, and appreciating its simplistic and unique look."

    Ali believes people are drawn to modernism due to their inner desire to express themselves through simplicity. Think of it like this: when your space has no unnecessary details, you can't get bored of it. If everything has its purpose, you don't question its presence.

    "I started this page 18 months ago and made over 1,300 posts" Ali continued. "Based on the posts that have had the biggest engagements and interests, I can see clearly what design features my followers like the most." 

    "For example, they're attracted by the most simple and minimalist architecture; boxy style, linear elements, flat roofs... They may seem basic, but they give that amazing, stunning, and artistic look to a place."

    When talking about design, the words 'contemporary' and 'modern' are often used interchangeably but, although there are similarities, they are two distinct design styles from different periods.

    First, there was modernism, then came contemporary interior design; modern design flourished in the mid 20th century while contemporary design is still forming at present. But it's an easy mistake to make.

    The modernism movement began to unfold as it moved away from using traditional building and design materials like wood, stone, and brick, focusing on industrial materials such as glass, steel, and concrete instead.

    The most recognized and influential design philosophy was created by the German Bauhaus school of design in the 1920s.

    "The basic principle of the Bauhaus is 'Form follows function,'" interiors writer, stylist, and designer Cate St. Hill writes. "That means that designs were made to be functional, practical, useful, and simple, often before their beauty was considered."

    According to St. Hill, Bauhaus designs are defined by a lack of ornament, the use of clean lines, smooth surfaces, and geometric shapes.

    She thinks its core idea is exactly the reason why Bauhaus has persevered. "Because Bauhaus designs prioritized function and were carefully considered in relation to space, they have endured – this wasn't style over substance (although some would argue they didn't always put comfort first)."

    "Bauhaus designs still fit seamlessly into today's homes – because they're refined and functional, they still look contemporary. Simplicity just doesn't date. I think Bauhaus design is particularly relevant at the moment in relation to small space urban living and today’s multifunctional homes," the designer explained.

    Of course, there's more to modern design than Bauhaus. For example, there's Modern Rustic, Modern French, and other variations. And you can find pretty much all of them on Call It Design.

    It'd be fun watching a show or a movie in that bed while it's raining outside.

    This is stunning but as someone who've seen it in the past....You have to choose your trees very carefully...some roots can cause damage to the pool.

    Back in the days when you could travel the world I spent a week on Samos with some friends. We found a tavern just like this in a remote town, and I drank the best orange juice I ever had there.

    For an Eco house, that looks like a lot of lights, apparently plugged in on a power strip. Lovely room, though and fantastic view (with apparently hot tub outside!).
