Interior designs that feature an edgy and moody vibe stay far away from the cotton candy fluff that comes with eclectic and even contemporary style designing. Instead, it focuses more on a rather ‘grunge’ style look that is part shabby chic and part industrial in aesthetic. Further, we’ll be looking at 5 easy ways you can get an edgy and moody vibe in your interior designs!
1. The red brick road
Dorothy may have taken the Yellow Brick Road to Oz, but nothing can get more edgy than a beautifully rustic red brick wall. The best part is that they’re available in quite a number of textures. If you don’t like smooth, you can go with rough. And you’re wary about an actual brick cladding ruining your wall, then go for the wallpaper.
2. Light on dark
There is no definitive definition of an edgy, moody color scheme. However, professionals agree that if you layer dark colors in an otherwise brightly hued color scheme, then you can get an aesthetic that is certainly a match. The dark grey and plum colors that overlap with the lavender wall of this room are a great example.
Backlighting is the ultimate mood making aspect of such a design scheme! A backlit window that is covered with edgy venetian blinds can look absolutely stunning in a very glamorous manner. If you design your foreground with tints of grey and back with occasional splashes of color, the overall effect will enhance twofold!
4. Specific artwork
You cannot get the desired edgy effect in your interior designs by using simple artwork. Colorful graphics and whimsical paintings are simply out of the question. You need to think bolder and simple to get the moody vibe across this aesthetic. Signage and word art are the best way to incorporate artwork in such interior design styles.
5. Aluminum framing & track lights
Aluminum framing in glass doors and windows evoke a very industrial chic aura in the overall aesthetic. It adds an authentic and original vibe to the design of such interior design styles. Similarly, track lights feature a very authentic aura. It also emits a great accent-style spot light, which is excellent for lighting up such interior design styles.
