5 easy ways to dramatize your interiors
Drama is a good way to set your interiors apart from the rest of the lot. But it can certainly be a challenging concept to work on. Dramatization includes ramping up the glamor, creating a certain aura and great visuals that reinforce grandeur in subtle and restrained ways. It is a good way to beautify your interiors and make them unique enough to be covetous. Dramatic interiors also run the gamut of light and dark color scheme all on the same scale. You have to be very careful about pursuing the right accessories, lighting and other interventions. Below, let’s look at a few ways to implement drama in easy but surefire ways into any interior.
- Black and white
The right combination of black and white can easily elevate the drama of your surrounding in a chic and elegant way. All you have to do is be careful about balancing the visual weight of theses hues in a way that won’t undermine or overwhelm the other. When the perfect balance is struck, you’ll get the best possible results.
Choosing the right accessories is a key part of any good interior design, but it is especially important when you’re trying to build up a dramatic ambiance. The image below shows the perfect way to work with restraint yet glamor hand in hand. The simple vase full of contrasting flowers against the black backdrop provides a great way to set off the glamorous side of your interior scape.
- Small interventions
Sometimes, all you need is some small intervention to bring out the best in your design. Lighting is a good and intangible way to introduce drama into your settings. The bedroom in the image below plays with symmetry and burnished lighting fixtures to create that certain aura of grandeur that brings about the right kind of drama into the surroundings.
- By the furniture
Furniture design is another good way to design with drama. You could always choose glaringly glamorous materials like leather and suede or something else to eek out the dramatic aspect of your interior. If you look at the image below, you’ll see how the beautifully supple leather couch brings out the glitzy side of the space with its swanky presence.
- Use dramatic elements
Design elements are another good way to play on the drama of your surroundings. The image below shows a great example of this idea; the sides of the corridor are lined with beautiful black wall beading that almost but not quite merges into the backdrop, while the end has been decorated with a large scale arch that is definitely bigger in size and scale but translucent enough in design to make the space seem sophisticated and understated.
