Redefining Typical – The Art of Interior Design
Interior design, like architecture itself, is a vast, vast genre. There aren’t just a few stylistic expressions, neither are there a select general niches that you can pick from. In fact, there is so much dichotomy, so many expressions of art, structures and styles in this niche of design that some find it hard to deviate away from the typical. Designers can sometimes find themselves stuck in a rut – the creative outlet only limited to a select matter that has become too conventional. A combination of modern and contemporary seems to have taken over the market over the past few decades – as such there is nothing defining about any aspect of design that we find ourselves admiring. Most contemporary interiors today try to emulate the modern aesthetic without having any standout characteristics of their very static genre. It is both a letdown and an opportunity – to create hybrid designs that embrace the wide variety of styles available in our hatchet. Below, we’ll be looking at a few interiors that definitely redefine typical.
Of standout design
Bold lines and unique product design are a very inherent aspect of the contemporary design genre. Emulating a slick vibe through the use of latest materials and capturing an aesthetic that is one part rustic and two parts bold contemporary is what the designer has managed to achieve in this bold stylistic expression of this interior setup. The dim lighting with rick colors, the structural and lighting expression, along with some bold material choices make this interior avante garde and exceptional.
Of Industrial and pattern expressions
There is a certain simplicity in textures – the smooth surface of a glaze adorned with the subtle expressions of materials that are not actually there. Now combining that simplicity with actual patterns that are not only bold, but also stand out in the rest of the setting is an interesting way to go about material application. You have to be careful about balancing out the harmony between the textures and the actual patterns. Take in account the visual balance of the space and apply the material accordingly, and you will definitely get an interior that redefines the typical.
Of text and balance
A new genre in contemporary design explores interior design via application of text. Now you can write down your favorite quotes and make them an inherent part of the space you live in. these words are not only an element of décor, but they are an expressions of your thoughts – of what simple words can reflect of you and your personality in a limited amount of space.
Of mirrors and double spaces
An interesting take on designing small spaces is by doubling them up by the use of mirrors. These can not only double the size of your space but create visual mirage that can defy logic. It is a creative design secret that has been in use over the last half a decade and winning over the small space community.
