Fusion Between Classic and Industrial ~ INTERIOR DESIGN

Classic and Industrial Concept

In the past few years, industrial design has become increasingly popular and it’s easy to see why. The look is based on combining the best aspects of old-world charm with modern sleekness. In essence, it’s a perfect compromise. However, there’s one big misconception keeping this style from becoming a household staple.

When picturing these designs, we typically think of lofts with big open windows and lots of exposed brick. Those who live in less urban environments may feel they don’t have the right surroundings, that their living spaces are too traditional to really pull off this look.

We’re here to tell you that couldn’t be further from the truth. Let us prove to you that every room can benefit from a dose of industrial style. Continue below to learn more about why this look works and how you can bring it into your own interiors. Before you know it, you’ll be ready to create an industrial design of your own

One of the first things you’ll notice about industrial spaces is that there aren’t a lot of bold pops of color. Instead, this style relies on using a combination of neutral shades to create a clean look. Keep this in mind as you choose your color palette.

That said, not all neutrals are created equal. In contrast to the starkness put forth by more traditionally modern spaces, industrial interiors tend to have more of a warm and inviting feel to them. This is because, rather than favoring black and white hues to create a harsh contrast, they incorporate a variety of browns and tans. Use these shades as your dominant colors with other neutrals serving as accents.

Don’t forget that natural materials also count as neutrals. If you’re lucky enough to live in a home with brick walls or exposed duct work, those should absolutely take center stage. Even if not, you could also consider incorporating a variety of wood, stone and metal pieces into your design.

Since we typically think of that urban loft space as the industrial ideal, it is important to try and re-create that feeling regardless of your surroundings. If you have the square footage, go all in on an open concept layout. If not, focus on making the room feel as open as possible.

You know this means making sure your design includes plenty of negative space. Instead of filling the room with lots of clutter, make sure its function is the focus. Keep any pathways to travel around the room as wide as you can and try to limit any purchases with pieces that pull double duty in terms of usage and aesthetic value

The concept of flexibility in architecture can divide into various topics depending on the residential building’s physical, mechanical and structural systems at the stage of planning, design and practice. 

This classification can change depending on the bearing elements i.e. built-in elements (columns, slabs, vertical installation shafts, vertical circulation elements) and variable parts (non-load bearing walls, plane of working, display elements). 

Archictecture describes flexibility as a method, which is depending on principles of construction and distribution of service spaces. He explains that the main components of flexible scheme are pre-planned relations between the loadbearing axis, loadbearing interior partitions, central heating, water and electricity services, main and service spaces. Ustun also notes that the adaptability is based on basis of planning and organization. 

Room sizes, spatial relations between rooms, load bearing internal dividers, the perception of space regardless of function are the parameters of adaptation.1 The adaptability is to provide opportunity for reuse of residential space with a different function at any period of time. Obsolescence of function in residential space is a problem, decreasing the value of the building. The solution is changing use without changing structural components; in other words it is the principle of adaptability, which provides flexibility. The variability is to grow outward, to expand by way of modules. As it is understood from this point, the difference between adaptability and variability is the structural components coming into play and their ability to change.

Interior design is defined as, “the art or process of designing the interior decoration of a room or building.” While a “process” may include a set of rules or stringent guidelines, the concept of “art” is much more fluid and subjective. Consequently, perceptions of design style can be confusing without a common frame of reference. If a client cannot clearly articulate his or her vision for decorating a residential or commercial space, it presents a great challenge for an interior designer. This glossary was created to inform, inspire and empower.

Purpose of this home decorating styles glossary

Inform – Serve as a comprehensive repository of style definitions

Inspire – Help clients visualize how various rooms and styles can be blended to create a personalized

What are the most popular interior design styles?

Much like expressionist abstract art, abstract interior design focuses on unique architectural elements, such as asymmetrical doorways and home furnishings. It’s similar to modern or contemporary design in that it utilizes clean lines, though abstract style also incorporates chaotic aspects to offer a fresh and unique perspective. This type of interior design lends itself to bold colors, such as yellows, blues and oranges. Black is used as a contrasting element to create a striking statement. Tables, chairs and sofas have clean lines, but much like the entirety of the abstract style, these furniture pieces are asymmetrical. Lighting also features simple lines and borrows from a modern aesthetic. You might see a geometric diamond-shaped pendant that casts abstract lighting throughout the interior.

This mid-century style combines modernity with idealistic minimalism. Unlike angular art deco, art moderne (a.k.a. streamline moderne) designs are tapered, rounded and have a more horizontal emphasis. Doorways, windows and other architectural elements come with curved corners. Raw, natural textures such as metal, terra cotta tile, copper, concrete and glass are all mixed and matched throughout the home as well. The key to art moderne is simplicity – decorative patterns are scarce. Instead, solid neutrals really help to make a strong statement. Furniture is stripped down and typically emulates a sense of motion with pieces like tiered tables. Chairs and sofas also have rounded edges and use contrasting material colors like black and white. Surfaces are glossy to give the furniture a modern feel. Floor and table lamps are popular light fixtures in the art moderne style. These lamps commonly feature frosted glass and shades are circular and also made of glass.

Just like art, A designer needs to satisfy more than just the pure functionality purposes of a design. The composition, the space, the forms and the interior give sensation and meaning to the design to create an experience famously known as “emotional conceptual”.

Space is one of the most important elements of design. Space is an intangible attribute of a design defined in terms of forms, shapes, size, color, smell, time, location. and atmosphere. In this article, we will discuss the basic elements of form and space, what makes up the space and how the positive and negative elements in a space create a unity of opposites that defines our visual field and experience. Designer is an art when one consciously or unconsciously creates aesthetic emotion in the atmosphere and when this environment produces wellbeing.

Space by itself is inherently formless and can be as open or as closed, as cluttered or as empty as intended. It can be the smell of flowers in the garden or the cloudy sky occupying our view from the windows. It can be consciously meaningless or meaningful based on our brain associations with the form and mass in our visual field. 

It all starts with a point in the space in a given time. A point marks a position in space. Two points define the composition of a line. A line that moves away from its inherited direction forms a plan establishes length and width in the space. One of the key characteristics of a plane is shape which is the characteristic outline of the plane and the primary means for us to recognize and identify the visual constructs around us. Color, texture and pattern of a plane affect the visual weight and stability it carries in our visual perception. 

Neo Classic (Between Marble and Wood) ~ INTERIOR DESIGN

Elegant, luxurious and timeless, neoclassical design is all about melding tradition with modern, contemporary pieces for an interior that will seriously impress. Whether it’s the enduring colour palette that has you enthralled or the trend-defying nature of the style, neoclassicism is one of the most popular design genres for a reason. But how to get there, without feeling overdone? We take you through four simple rules to stick with to ensure a fresh approach.

Neoclassicism is all about muted colours. Whites, creams, greys can be accentuated with pops of black, yellow or green. In 2018, we suggest adding elements of gold and brown to modernise the look—beige might be good for a room, but colour adds much-needed depth to a home.

Neoclassicism is all about refined luxury—with some seriously over-the-top finishing touches. If that sounds like a contradiction, it is. As the colourway stays refined, it’s the shapes and accessories where the bold statements are made. Think bulbous furniture and classic styling, but add an element of luxury with gold hardware lighting, beautiful artwork or a chandelier. Take inspiration from the style’s Greco-Roman roots and decorate with ornaments for authenticity use—but don’t go overboard. A modern and chic take on the style is all about paring it back. Less is more.

When decorating in a neoclassical style, make sure to stay within the theme, but ensure there’s a point of difference with every piece. Confused? Don’t be. Stick with a theme and follow it. Think, furniture that’s in the same family: chairs with similar chairs and so on. For traditional neoclassicism, try geometric shapes, clean lines and detailed carvings. Use finishing touches like headboards and wallpaper to match the style of the furniture and tie it all together. In other words, everything should be the same, but different.

Going overboard on the colours or accessories can turn a beautiful home into a tacky one. And with neoclassicism’s potential for statement making, there’s a fine line to toe when choosing your furniture. When playing with neoclassical elements, we suggest enlisting the help of a professional interior designer, as the style is often tricky to pull off—especially if your house isn’t traditionally endowed with intricate architecture details. For at-home stylists, make sure to match like colours and mix textiles for a room with genuine depth.

Modern design refers to the specific time period from the early to mid-twentieth century. The style is a precursor to contemporary design, with key figures including Le Corbusier, Charles and Ray Eames, and Florence Knoll. The inception of modern design happened at the peak of the modern art movement, informed by Scandinavian and German Bauhaus design. The distinct style focused on simple form and function, which are valued as equals under this style. Think earthy palettes, natural materials like wood, leather, and stone, and streamlined silhouettes.

Unlike modern design, contemporary design doesn’t refer to a specific period of time—it’s constantly evolving to reflect the popular styles of present day design. It borrows qualities from modernism, minimalism, Art Deco, and other global styles, without hyper-focusing on any one in particular. Though contemporary design is, by nature, fairly ambiguous, there are a few qualities that help define the contemporary style. Neutral palettes, stark minimalism, clean lines, and organic silhouettes are some of the prominent characteristics. You can expect to see materials including nickel, steel, and chrome, combined with natural textures like hemp or jute.

Contemporary is, by definition, what’s happening in design at this very moment in time. This definition makes it more fluid and hard to pin down. Modern design, on the other hand, has a distinguishable aesthetic that emphasizes crisp lines, warm neutrals, and balance.

Classical interior design is a blend of both Greek and roman interior design. This designing basically deals with perfect harmony, balance and order. Giving your interiors a classical look means bringing them much closer to the earlier period when interior designs like Rococo, Victorian and many such were in trend. Classical interior designing has its own aura and is one which never goes out of style. So if you so wish to style your place in a more traditional manner here are some classical interior designing ideas that will surely help you in your interior décor.

Order symmetry and balance are the key features of classical interior designing. If you have at least one mirror in a room make sure to balance it with another. Also keep in mind to continue some features of a room to another. Do not decorate every room with a different style all together, this will surely lead to asymmetry.

Any wooden statue, a beautiful piece of wooden art or a beautiful wooden table can act like one of the focal points. Keep in mind that when you are creating a focal point, thus other accessories in the area should be in accordance with it. For example a featured fire place flanked on either side by matching armchairs with an ornate mirror above can help you give your room a classic look.

Hues common in classical interior designing style are basically inspired by nature. Shades of yellow, blue, green and brown, even some softer muted colours such as terracotta, grey and pink are very much in trend. When going for whites if you wish to have a more authentic classical look try and go for off-white but if you wish to give your interiors a contemporary feel choose bright white.

Pastel color schemes can be used with a variety of decorating styles. The most creative pastel palette ideas usher in summer and spring goodness. You can combine pastels with gentle whites or sophisticated grays and every combination looks absolutely stunning. Match the elegance and soothing charm of pastel hues with our guide below.

Whether you offset gentle shades with crisp white, combine them with more vivid colors, go subtle with a touch of pastel style, or saturate your space with these irresistible hues, you’re sure to have a winning interior.

We begin with a tried and true strategy for heightening the effect of pastels: pairing them with crisp white! In fact, many prefer to let soft hues speak for themselves simply by NOT covering the room with them. For example, an accent wall gets the job done, especially when complemented by silver lines in the same hue.
