The modern classic theme is very unique and perfect for making a huge impact on Singaporean homes. If you want to emulate it in your homes, here are 5 ways you can do so:
1. Cheers to the classic bed
In the grand scheme of a modern classic interior design, just having a single classical style element can totally influence the modern surroundings. The best example of this technique is featured in this image. The classic tufted headboard of the bed is just the thing the ambiance requires to complement the sleek modern materials, lighting, and design elements that are spread around the room.
2. Up and down
You can emulate a beautiful modern classic look in your home interiors by dividing up the styles in different dimensions of the room. For example, if the ceiling is modern, some of the major elements on the floor can be classical. Just take a look at this gorgeous living room – its false ceiling is the epitome of modern elegance while the furniture on the ground speaks the language of the classical style.
3. Counteracting the design elements
Having several modern and classical style elements in a single space is also a good way to emulate the modern classic style. However, balance and harmonizing are key here. You can’t let one style get the best of the other. You can even play with the colour schemes with this technique. The pink and white formation of this bedroom is a great example of how to carry it out!
4. Material contrast
Sometimes, when you can’t find any contrasting design elements for a space, you can emulate the modern classic look just by playing with different materials. Pairing sleek surfaces with slightly distressed classical style ones makes a lot of difference. You can get inspired by the matt grey laminate and cloudy grey floor featured in this image.
5. When all else fails – marble
Marble is the top stepping stone on your way to the classical aesthetic. So when you need something subtle but impressive to balance out the modern in your modern classic theme, you can simply emulate the marble texture to get the desired results.
