Breaking Conventions – Sophistication meets Youthfulness
Most of the times, when a designer tries to break conventions, they leave the modern and contemporary genre and choose a unique design palate instead. It not only gives a more open stance to designing, but also takes the theoretical and ideological aspects of an interior and molds them into an idiosyncratic concept. It is not necessarily a bad idea, to follow this trend, but it important to know that giving up on the modern aesthetic is not the only way to break conventions in interior design. Though inherently rigid, there are ways to modify the modern aesthetic in a more contemporary fashion. This can be done with the help of newer materials, funkier color palates, and avant garde furniture design. Together, all of these elements come together to break the rigid conventions set forth by the modern aesthetic, making it even more sophisticated and youthful. Keeping that in mind, we will be taking a look at a few such interior designs today.
Red, White and Yellow
At first glance, this interior setting may seem like a bit too retro, but on closer inspection, you would notice that it has all the underlying trappings of the modern genre. The clean and clear cut lines of the furniture design are truly modern, while the lighting is just the perfect blend of natural and artificial. However, it is the red and yellow overlay that sets this design apart – a figurative break in convention that defies the modern aesthetic in the best of ways.
The true modern aesthetic used to be extremely drab when it came to physical applications. Aside from a clean austere vibe, there was nothing to break from the modern conventions set by rigid rules of the design. This design, however keeps a simple look, and breaks conventions by elaborating on physical impressions – in this case a vodka bottle.
Chromes and Leather
Material application is one of the most important endeavors carried out by interior designers. It can make or break the design if done right or wrong respectively. The interior below is the perfect representation of this concept; the combination of chrome veneer with leather upholstery is an unlikely but awesome effect.
This airport themed home would be perfectly unconventional concept for those who wish to travel. The theme is perfectly followed in all respects, while at the same time retaining the concept of a home.
This whimsical little inter setting is all whimsy and part modern. The scale and settings define the modern theme with edgy lines and no curves, but it is the soft blue color scheme that embraces the unconventional, offering an unforeseen sophistication to the entire setting.
