Who needs simplicity when you can do things with style? While minimalism and simple modernism are still quite effective as well as evocative in their aesthetics, there is something that is even more attractive about artistic spaces. But if you’re a connoisseur of both, then that is just as much possible. Further, let’s take a look at how you can make even the simplest of interior designs artistic.
1. Your play on materials
The alternating use of different materials can definitely have an artistic impact on any interior design. You simply have to be careful about walking that fine balance between too flashy and too restrained. When you find that perfect balance, you’ll end up with an interior design that hits all the right visual sweet spots.
2. Getting creative with illusions
HDB’s are usually small, and it can be quite hard to emulate all your dream home aesthetics into that limited amount of square footage. You can make an artsy play on the aesthetic by using illusory techniques to make the best of your small space. You can go for a full looking mirror cladding or a half-wall design scheme to introduce a playful vibe in your home designs.
3. That special feature wall
The one challenge that ever designer faces during the design of bedroom is the feature wall. If you’re too hardcore with the design the bedroom ends up looking too small and overbearing. On the other hand, if you hold your hand, the bedroom ends up looking too minimalistic. You can see a good example of the how you can be both at the same time in this image. The white tufted feature wall is the perfect blend of simple yet artistic.
4. By design
Artistic by design is the best way to go. You can use different textures and even create customized patterns with various surfaces in your interior designs to achieve this aesthetic. The wardrobe come media wall in this image are the perfect example of this technique.
5. Minimal luxury
Using differing surfaces and large, luxurious fixtures is a great way to introduce a blend of artsy and simple in your spaces. This kind of a technique works best in a bathroom setting; just imagine having epic views of the cityscape from your bathtub along with a mix of light and dark surfaces that make up the interior design.
