Hothouse Flowers – The Art of Interior Detailing
Designing a magnificent piece of furniture, or a really contemporary media wall may seem like an easy task on the surface, but when it comes down to it, any designer needs to an extra mile to stimulate the creative juices to their extent. A good interior may be easy to design, but the best interior takes time and meticulous detailing to even put on paper – you have to know the concept, know the brand, and know the psyche of the client – but most of all, you need to identify with yourself and think outside that box. It takes a lot of extensive knowledge and an exposure to practical practice for any designer to get that far in the game, and even then, the end result depends a lot on how far you can let your imagination run. A brilliant interior design takes design to the very next level by focusing on the detail – which becomes an integral part of the overall design. As Mies Van Der Rohe so aptly put, ‘God is in the detail,’ so today we will be looking at a few designs that go above and beyond when it comes to designing that perfect interior through detailing.
In the Lines
If you look at this picture, your eyes would move – that is the beauty of this interior. It uses a dynamic sort of movement through lines to captivate the eye – a literal eye catch. This movement is only one part of the design – the meticulous combination of white and black with the perfect glaze is another detail that sets this design apart.
This cozy bedroom has all the warmth of a rustic interior imbued into its design – the unrestricted symmetry of the design along with the perfect blend of materials creates an aesthetic that is as beautiful as it is imbued with warmth.
Product design can make or break the aesthetics of an interior – the stylization of the fixture design can make any space seem rigidly modern, or outrageously contemporary at the same time. The chair design in this interior is a detail that is highly contemporary in contrast to the rest of the simplicity of this theme.
Paint the Town Purple
A fun little unconventional interior, this design is set apart not only by the extensive use of the purple theme, but also by its uniquely bubblegum furniture set. The unchecked dissimilarity in the media wall design along with the popping furniture scheme are the details that make this scheme what it is.
This interior sets itself apart through a conceptualization that is placed in the cultural norms of an entire tradition – Zen. This Japanese style bedroom takes the augmented element of modern shoji/chic design and creates an entirely new concept out of it.
