Modern home interiors are quite the popular trend in Singapore, but can you imagine how boring they’d be without wood? Let’s take a look at 5 times wooden accents totally transformed a modern interior design:
1. To balance out this white
While whites and wood is a classic combination, it can be challenging to determine the ratio of ‘wood’ within this combo. Many people simply end up going for too much white – which is fine, if you can do your floors in all-wood. The bedroom come study area in this image is a pretty great example of how you can harmonize the largely white and wooden counterparts within a space.
2. By adding different tones to a simple look
The best part about wooden textures is that they are available in such a diverse variety that you can have a lot of fun by creating different combinations. Even with the lighter hues, you can blend together accents to create a casual visual dissonance. This living room interior features an excellent example on how to do that without compromising the sleekness of the modern look.
3. Complementing with an understated ambiance
The natural texture of wood is very soothing in and of itself, but it can start to feel slightly rustic if used without restrain in a modern interior design. The best way to counter that is by surrounding the wooden texture with other understated hues. If you look at the living room in this image, you’ll see how the periwinkle sofa upholstery, grey consoles, and dim ambiance complements the bright vivacity of the wooden floor.
4. When it gets too dull
The modern palette – comprising of both color and material schemes – is mostly very restrained, if not completely on the dull side of the spectrum. Using the naturally bright and interesting visuals of wood can make such spaces seem much more livelier. The open kitchen featured in this image showcases perfectly how wood can even imbue life into dull-hued glossy laminates.
5. When lighting strikes at the right angle
Good lighting is always imperative when you’re working with wooden accents – especially when the ambiance is plain, minimalist, or modern. If you look at this living room interior design, you’ll see how the golden incandescence of light creates such a gorgeous atmosphere and brings out the best in the wood textured floors.
