Renowned for their simplicity, utility, and beauty, Scandinavian homes have a pure, pared backed style that is centered around warm functionality, clean lines, flawless craftsmanship and understated elegance. How to make your home Scandinavian? Let’s look closely at its characteristic features.
What’s industrial interior design, which is getting more and more popular now? It’s about ‘warehouse looks’ that combine a true industrial feel with a range of other styles. Such looks a widely used in loft apartments, modern homes and commercial spaces around the world, and if you wanna use them, too, or at least incorporate some elements of industrial style in your home decor, I have some ideas for you. 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. avoid contrasts: instead of juxta positioning brown and white, rock a variety of browns and tans. Use these shades as your dominant colors with other neutrals serving as accents. Warm neutrals help to bring visual warmth to the industrial style rooms, part of an area that might otherwise be overwhelmed by the coolness of metal pipes and ducts.
The contemporary exterior features contrasting colors and textures with charred cedar cladding and smooth white finishes that pay homage to its mid-century roots. An Ipe wood deck retracts to reveal a hidden hot tub. When it’s not in use, the hot tub is covered and ready for outdoor dining. Right by the lake, a Beach Hut was built to host a casual seating area next to the water. The side facing the lake was opened up with tilt slide windows that dissolve the indoor/outdoor barrier. The original house was divided up, dark, and wasn’t designed to enjoy the lake and surrounding views. It was transformed to allow in as much natural light throughout the day through carved windows and skylights. The interior was made interesting with much wood including weathered, fur, velvet and even hammered metals. The views are framed with large windows and whole glazed walls, which makes the interiors more peaceful. Take a look and get inspired by the amazing home pics below!
With its clean lines and eminently cool vibe, mid-century modern decor has been popular for about the last decade. The comfortable and stylish designs fit with today’s more casual lifestyle and open floor plans. What’s mid-century modern style? It’s really a reference to developments from the middle of the 20th century – mainly after World War II – in architecture, furniture, materials and technologies that become popular after the end of the war. Most sources generally accept that the heyday was roughly 1945-1969. Mid-century modern has many of its roots in Germany’s Bauhaus style. Thanks to the migration from Europe after World War II, designers brought this type of interior décor o the United States, where it became extremely popular and still is. The style is still popular today as it’s a perfect fit for today’s contemporary, modern and eclectic home décor styles. A connection to Scandinavian minimalism and the incorporation of natural materials is a core feature that fuels its following.
Mediterranean style originated in countries north of the Mediterranean Sea, including Spain, Greece and Italy, and is often referred to today as “Spanish modern.” This style became popular in architecture in the last century and some beautiful features of such decor have been incorporated into interior designs since then. Wanna integrate them, too? Here are some tips. Go for neutrals as the base of your interior, whites, off-whites and even buttermilk. Mediterranean colors echo those of the sea and sky and, depending on the region, can also include warm terra cotta, lavender and yellow. Incorporate much texture, too: layers of paint and glaze are hand-rubbed onto plaster or sand-textured walls to add visual depth. Simulate the look of a plaster wall with a textured finish using tinted drywall compound and colored beeswax.
