Tired of all those plain, glossy modern style homes that always take up the magazine spread? Want to style your home in a way that’s as tasteful as it is interesting? Well, no matter what the case, we’ve got you covered. Below, we’ll take a look at 5 quirky and artistic spaces that are stylish, unique, and sophisticated at the same time. Here they are:
1. Artwork for the win
Even if your home is designed in the simplest of ways, some quirky artwork can always spice things up. If you look at this image, you’ll see how the abstract artwork on the statement wall effuses the surroundings with a unique aura! You can use a similar technique yourself.
A great way to be artistic yet sophisticated with your interior designs is by using complicated and simple patterns that keep the eye moving from one place to another. As you can see in this picture, the horizontal slats of the bookcase, the frames on the wall, and even the furniture has been selected to evoke this effect.
3. Balancing the colours
One of the most important parts of designing a quirky yet still elegant home interior is to balance out the colours. For example, the blue and teal in this kitchen are balanced by the earthy industrial textures used in the upper half. The unique floor tiles provide great add-on’s to the whole space.
4. The importance of foreground
Having a nice foreground is important if you want the understated parts of your interior design to feel unique. That’s exactly what happens with this bedroom interior, where the wall outside has been designed in the quirkiest possible pattern so that the simple interior can feel like a visual break. It’s definitely an interesting technique that can be used in any residential interior design.
5. Using shapes to your advantage
At the end of the day, basic geometry is the crux of every interior design project. Without it, you’d never have anything to work with. So, this bathroom interior utilizes the best of this essential and delivers some amazing aesthetics. The neat floor finishes play in direct contrast with the zig-zag and hexagon patterns on the walls. Note that visual balance is important here, so don’t overuse anything.
