Technicolor with a splash of trendy
Color and interior designing are two sides of the same coin. You can never have one without the other and each flip side offers some great value to the interior in its own way. The Technicolor theme is all about creating interiors that are overflowing with colors of the more funky variety. That is not to say that these colors have to be jarringly exuberant or vivid – just the right amount of vivacious to arrest the eye but keep it moving around. The Technicolor theme is hard to imbue in interiors mostly because many clients find the idea gaudy at first description, but if done right, it can definitely seem sufficiently playful with a sophisticated edge. So without further ado, let’s take a good look at some interiors that have managed to carry the Technicolor theme really well.
- A mix of dull and bright
Technicolor doesn’t always have to be all neon rainbows and sunshine packed into a small space. It can also be a fine combination of dull and bright, to ease off the visual capacity of the eye of the beholder. The interior design in the image below features a great Technicolor theme; it is edgy with just the right amount of softness and a peculiarity that is added by through the uniqueness of the design.
- The right flavor of exuberant
Sometimes, all you need is a neutral base to make even the tiniest of Technicolor interventions to shine on their own. The image below features an interior that offers a unique color palate of reds, blues, lime greens and yellows which stands out even more against the stark, austere base of the white hued backdrop of this interior.
- Even in small spaces
Bathrooms might seem like the worst possible places to hold a Technicolor theme interior, but the smallness of the space allows for this idea to work exceptionally well in a contained sort of way. The image below features a small bathroom design that is splashed with patterned floors and the barest amount of reds with a brushed gold light accenting. Together, all these elements come together to create a great small style space intervention.
- Just that single object
If you’re planning to work with a color scheme that is all neon rainbows and sunshine in a small space, then you need to set the boundaries. The image below features an interior that has just one single, temporary object as a Technicolor intervention; the couch cushion. However, against the dull blue and grey backdrop, it manages to bring a zany vivacity into the space without which this interior might have been one object short of perfection.
- Mismatched and hodge-podge
The image below features an interior that is all about breaking tradition – with mismatched furniture, an underlay of shabby chic interior concept and an overlay of Technicolor lighting aspect enhanced by careful lighting design, this is easily one of the best designs created in the image of this theme.
