Remix – Of Swanky Retro and Playfully Funky
Hybrid designing is all the rage these days. Various styles of interior design and architecture are paired up in a dichotomy of auras that can either come out being complementary or contradictory. The design you get a result that touches the sweet spot on that designer instinct. One of the hybrid styles that are very common these days are the retro and funky fusion style. With only retro, you get a vintage vibe with the disco era aesthetic – but when you combine it with the funky fusion style, you get something cutting edge and contemporary. This fusion hybrid plays off the color palate and the mid-century modern aesthetics – using the best of both to create something bigger and better to offer to the masses. Part of the color scheme needs to be necessarily bold, and the other half needs to be mild – only when the balance is perfect, can we get the desired results. Below, we would be discussing a few fusion retro funky schemes and their defining characteristics.
Authentic Dichotomy of Design
The retro scheme is well known for its pop out and disco era art themes. This interior takes the effective color scheme of the funky genre and mixes it up with the pop art style of the retro scheme. This creative amalgam creates a distinctive but systematic layering of the two concepts that have been consolidated in the best possible way. The pastel highlights throughout the room stops the interior from leaning towards a rather drab setting, and the meticulous placement of attractive trinkets and baubles throughout the room work in tandem with the theme.
The bold and the beautiful
Most designers are hesitant to go all out while choosing the funky color scheme – this palate is known for inducing a cringe worthy effect of not checked out and balanced. It is hard to achieve that perfect proportion, but the design below takes the popping colors of the funky scheme and layer it out with a nice does of contemporary retro. The lemon yellow couch with its accompanying cushions does not defy the logistics of the space and creates an environ that is sufficiently playful while not being overbearing. It also uses a bold line pattern in it fixtures to deviate attention from the strong color palate.
This interior setting is perhaps the most commonly depicted outcome of a hybrid retro and funky fusion. With a base coat of modern that drenches the atmosphere in a kind of stark austerity, the funky color scheme adds a bit of character to the entire setting. Combine that with the retro furniture style and you’ve got yourself a common hybrid formation. The amalgam of this outcome is pretty routine and may find the setting rather bleak, if you’re not into the whole contemporary dichotomous situation.
