A modern concept home can definitely look charming and alluring, but very often its chic elements can overpower the cozy and homely vibes that a home should have. While stark modern looks and sleekness are all well and good, you can always incorporate elements to soften its strong character a little to achieve a sense of coziness. Therefore, we will be sharing some practical styling tips to make a modern space feel cozy and inviting. Let’s take a look:
1. Media Wall
A major design element like a media wall or accent wall can provide the perfect opportunity to balance sleek modern looks with coziness. The Inclover Design team has done exactly that with this particular media wall. While half of it is austerely finished in high-gloss laminate, the other half is in a neutral wood texture. Together, the overall impact of the design is not only eye-catching but also perfectly harmonizes modernity with warmth.
2. Colour Palette
The colour palette plays a huge and important role in making a sleek modern space feel warm, inviting, and comforting. If you take a look at these images, you’ll see how the Inclover Design team has expertly managed to combine lustrous blacks with cozy browns. The interpretation of this neutral colour scheme has been articulated stunningly with the right materials that balance out each other, presenting a look which is not only welcoming but also highly stylish.
3. Kitchen design
The kitchen is that particular part of a modern home that is almost always too functional to be cozy or inviting. However, it’s not impossible to get the best of both worlds in it. As you can see in this image, you’ll notice how the matt cabinet laminates not only circumvent the sleekness of the typical modern aesthetic but also enhance it. Moreover, the Inclover Design team has used warm gold under-cabinet lighting to give the space a sense of warmth and coziness.
4. Lighting design
Lighting has a very important and immediate effect on how we perceive certain spaces. This is why you can easily make a sleek modern space feel cozy and comfortable by designing the perfect lighting. The Inclover Design team has fully utilized this concept and used the artful ceiling design and innovative light fixtures to make this home interior feel fashionably modern yet welcoming at the same time.
5. Textures and patterns
Lastly, the textures and patterns that you use in a modern home play a large role in making it feel cozy. While the modern style typically features the neutral colour theme, you can interpret it in soft and subtle textures such as wood, plush leathers, gauzy curtains, and a touch of botanic decor to get a homely aura. That’s what the Inclover Design team has done in this home design.
