Despite being around for more than a century now, the modern style has become immersed in many interior design myths over time. We’re here to debunk some of them, so let’s take a look:
1. Simplicity cannot be glamorous – says who
The modern style is known for its graceful simplicity and very little clutter, so many people miscalculate it for not being glamorous enough. That cannot be farther from the truth. In fact, it is the minimal beauty of the modern style that effuses it with such glamour in the long run.
2. Modernism is boring = False
The playing field of the modernist style may be very limited, but that does not make it boring. Instead, you simply have to find some newer, cleverer ways to break the monotony of your setbacks and ultimately make them the strength of a space. You can play with different textures, various lighting techniques, and even a plethora of simple patterns to achieve this end.
3. Sleekness can become dull – not really
Whoever says that the sleek aesthetic of modernism can become a dull thing to look at over the course of some time is absolutely wrong. In fact, one might say the sleek outlook of the modern style is one of the most timeless looks that you’ll ever come across. After all, it has persisted the tests of time and still very much beloved by people with highly contemporary sensibilities.
4. Modernism = minimal designing | depends on perspective
Many people believe that the modern style is averse to any sort of designing that may lean towards the elaborate. This may be true to a certain extent (modernism does prefer a very minimal outlook) but that does not mean that you can completely overlook style. The trendy light fixture and artwork in this image are great examples of how you can think out of the box while articulating such an aesthetic.
5. Sophistication can be monotonous = false
If anyone out there feels like ‘sophistication’ is a word that can be linked to either boring or monotonous, then think again. Yes, the modern style is extremely austere, but that sophistication always overcomes its coldness. If anything starts to feel to stark it can be easily balanced with subtle textures and natural accents within the space – it’s as easy as that.
