6 interiors that brim with elegance
The literal meaning of elegance translates to graceful and stylish; and that is probably the bar set for most contemporary, modern and minimal interiors. Because of their decidedly austere formations and lack of ornate decorations, these styles thrive on a simple, unadorned and straightforward ambiance that oozes elegance and sophistication. This expressive simplicity is one of the defining characteristic of these genres. Further, we’ll be looking at a few amazing interiors that have been designed on the contemporary-modern-minimal style palate and brim with elegance.
- Utilizing the space
The interior below has been designed in a way that utilizes each nook and cranny of the space without decorating it with useless frou-frou accoutrements. The walls have been designed in a textured way which balances the contrast of the glossy ceilings and walls. The natural light also provides a striking contrast against black and beige furniture. The overall combination is distinctive and elegant.
A black and white interior is always swanky, but the one below takes it up a notch. The phenomenal contrasting has been done in a way that carries a lot of visual weight. The demarcation of black to the floor dais is a good decision on the designer’s part, as it allows the rest of the interior scheme to remain relatively constant while maintaining a sophisticated and elegant look.
- Using candy colors
One would think that using vivid colors in an interior would never be able to accomplish an elegant vibe. The interior below is a sheer contradiction of this particular theory. The pastel bright green and orange looks extremely chic against the otherwise monochrome setting of the interior space, proving that the right color, materials and contrast can accomplish anything.
- In a single seating space
Sometimes, the entire ambiance of an interior can be defined be a single, defining space. In the interior below, you can see one such example of this kind of a space. The lighting fixtures may be the feature element, but without the playful, coltish design of the furniture, the space would not have been as stylish and elegant as it is now.
- Wood and bricks
There is something extremely elegant about the use of simple wood and brick within an interior that exudes elegance. In the image below, you will see the physical manifestation of this concept, where the wooden media wall contrasts beautifully with the exposed brick, and white painted wall on the left. The planter on the side imbues a fresh bout of color amidst the otherwise monotonous scheme of the interior.
The image below shows the elegance of an expertly designed neo-classical interior. While restrained on the ornamentation, the spectacular combination of contemporary classical elements and the monochrome color scheme present a striking end product.
