The Graphics Of Interior Design – Lines, Motifs, Patterns

Interior design is the sum total of a few very distinct design elements that make up a true whole. Every interior design consists of a combination of lines, motifs, patterns and graphics. Some of these elements may be more prominent than others in any given setting, but you can never truly make a space interesting enough with simply nothing. So today, let’s take a look at how to get the best graphics in your interior design.


1. Kitschy

Kitsch is basically an aesthetic that appeals to popular or lowbrow taste, but is often considered of poor quality. It’s a very vintage chic style that makes use of lots of patterns, stand-out material finishes and attractive color schemes. A combination of all of them can seem very overwhelming if it is done in a wrong way, but take a look at this image; the casual kitschy interior design is definitely inspiring.



2. Contrast in textures

A high contrast in texture can create a very distinguished interior design. It may require playing with linear geometry and various material finishes. If you look at this kitchen, you’ll see how the cabinet designs emphasize a distinct linear geometry while the mosaic backsplash offers some great contrast against the lightness of the wooden laminates.



3. Bold Design

If you take a simple cursory glance at this interior design, the only thing you’ll notice is the bold verticality. The shower, the columns, and the feature all – all the aspects that stand out in stark relief are very vertical in aesthetic. However, if you look closely, you’ll notice the horizontal overall of the bathroom tiles that is much more subtle in design. This contrast of lines creates such an attractive composition.



4. The subway tile phenomenon

Subway tiles are the newest take on an industrial aesthetic, and this room features an entirely new take on it. Most of the time, this kind of a tile is used as a backsplash, but never in such great numbers. However, the overall impact does turn out to be uniquely vintage and extremely attractive.



5. Sandwiched

This particular interior design is a sandwich of vertical lines between horizontal ones. The floor and ceiling create a very stark horizontal relief which frames the wine rack and dividing console pretty nicely. The overall impact is very inspiring as a whole.
