Cross Stitch – A Hybrid Reconciliation
Cross stitching is an age old art where you embroider a bigger picture by stitching small blacks that make a whole. It is an intriguing and worldly idea if you want to have a philosophical take on it, but mostly, it shows how small, inconsequential parts can come together to make a brighter bigger picture. Similar is the case with contemporary and neo-contemporary interior design – there are so many choices, that in the end, you can end up with a mostly hybrid amalgamation of various style that complement each other in the best of ways. Knowing how to choose from that long list of styles is the most challenging job for any designer. Most styles come in clusters, with a few resembling qualities and others come in rather individual styles with a solitary stance on their aesthetic. Knowing the difference between too little and too much is what makes for an interesting design outlook. Similarly, choosing the best complementary styles is what can set an interior apart. So keeping all of that in mind, we will be looking at a few hybrid compilations that show off the best characteristics of their design amalgamation.
Rustic & Modern
Not the most unlikely of design mates, the rustic style can imbue a bit of warmth in the cold austerity of the modern aesthetic. In the interior below, you can see how the rich wooden texture can overlay the clean, stark vibe of the modern underneath, but still retain an aura of rigidity in the clean, straight lines of the design.
Classic and Kitschy
The classic style is well known for its simple elegance and a sophistication that is almost inherent, and the kitsch style is a complete contradiction, with clutter as a theme of design. In this interior, you can see how the stripes overlay the classic lines of the traditional style, but still manage to retain that cognitive elegance all the same.
Modern & Minimalistic
Minimalism and Modernism can sometimes come hand in hand, but the difference comes when the modern theme imbues a vivid starkness in its design. This theme uses both the simple formation and a combination of earthy and achromatic vibes of the modern genre to create a well-rounded hybrid.
Although there is very little traditional Victorian in this design, it does stand out where it is incorporated though. The sleek, fabric donned lamp smack in the middle of this setting is all the Victorian this design needs to counter the white frigidness of the modern scheme.
Mid Century & Transitional
The tasteful combination of the colorful accessory palate with a slightly warm color palate make for an interesting mix. This combination is not only eye catching but also organic, with the use of natural light and views tapped into the mix.
