What a contrasting set of visuals: classical and modern. While the former is renowned for its extreme decorative qualities, the latter is known for its ultimate simplicity. So how can you combine such differing design visuals in a single space? Simple: by thinking out of the box. Below, we’ll be looking at a beautiful home where the best of classical and modern themes converges in a single space. Let’s take a look:
1. Bold yet sleek
The living room of this home combines the boldness of the classical style with the simplicity of the modern one in a masterful way. The achromatic color scheme is absolutely breathtaking. The darker parts have been strategically used on the sleek, modern surfaces. This helps them highlight all the classical accessories and home décor placed all around the space.
2. Plush vs. minimal
Another notable quality in the hybrid aesthetic of this living room is that it features a great blend of plush and minimal furniture. The sofa sectional is the magnum opus of the space, and makes itself a focal point with its lush upholstery and luxurious design. On the other hand, the media wall, coffee table and floor lamp contrast with a clean modern look.
3. Using statement objects
Since bathroom designs are heavily on the modern end of the spectrum, it can be challenging to incorporate a classical edge in them. However, this particular bathroom has done a great job of blending both aesthetics. It is mostly due to the statement worthy chandelier that’s hung in the middle of the bathroom ceiling. It beautifully contrasts the other modern surfaces used in the space.
4. Edgy dining room contrast
This dining room embraces both of its modern and classical counterparts by tweaking with the furniture. The sleek dining table itself is a contemporary masterpiece while the chandelier hung directly above it is an ode to the best of classic times. The surrounding white ambiance just adds to the majesty of the whole design
5. Using clichés
Sometimes, the best way to translate certain aesthetics is by using all the clichés in an innovative way. This bedroom is a great example of it. The sleek yet tufted headboard is the perfect combination of modern-classic, while the accessories all add a tinge of beautiful tradition to the rest of the modern surfaces.
