Collidoscope – When Interior Genre’s Collide
Fusion is a pretty common concept when it comes to architecture and interior design. The monotony of a single design concept can become a familiar refrain throughout society if once in a while, there isn’t an adequate twist. Collidoscope refers to the combination of two interior assets of different genre and their relatively articulate composition in the given space. There are so many different styles of interior design that one style is bound to leak into another anyway. A single design interpretation becomes a bit of an unembellished commodity that loses its char after a while. But when you fluctuate, the space comes alive and transcends the monogamous aura of an individual design. When two different styles come together you have to be very careful to determine an appropriate balance – neither one can out shine the other. This proportion is a very important part of the Collidoscope concept. Below, we would elaborate on some unlikely design styles that might appeal your sensibilities.
Funky and Industrial may not seem like the best of buddies on paper, but if a meticulous application is carried out on the desired space, this combination can definitely become bombastic. Industrial style carries it appeal in the dull tomes of its scheme, in the bareness of its structure and the almost minimalistic aura of its aesthetic. When you combine it with the bright color palate of funky, the contrast is strong enough to carry both genres and keep them afloat. It can turn out to be classy with a touch of ditzy.
Modern interiors are well known for their austere monogamy. They are stark and sleek and carry themselves with a severity that makes the space frosty. Rustic on the other hand has an inherently organic charm. Both of these genres of interior design are sufficiently contradictory I their aesthetic. But when you combine then, you can get a transitional style that is just as classy, but with a hint of cozy intimacy.
While Kitsch is very vintage, it can also emulate retro. There is a certain distinctive vibe about it that is at the same time very loud and very subtle. It can clamor in your head but not let you know what it is. Contemporary is a static affair. It has no single form. It is ever changing but always classic. The marriage of these two genres creates something completely avant garde that may be an acquired taste.
Vintage can emulate many forms. It can take on the form of a powder blue cabinet set with an eighty’s vibe, or it can take on the form of an elongated wooden media cabinet. Combining vintage with contemporary can be a tricky endeavor. Both of these designs have distinct personalities that can clash horridly if not done in the right way.
