At Modern Sanctuary, we love the new year, a time for fresh starts, new dreams and great intentions. We also love getting to look back at hundreds of beautiful rooms from the previous year to be re-inspired and re-energized! We hope you appreciate this compilation of the best of the best as much as we enjoyed curating it.
