Styling implies a sleek, simple and serene approach, and the use of neutrals with primary colors. No clutter or chaos allowed and decorative details and pattern are scarce. The essence of modern interior design includes basic shapes, functional lines and curves in furniture, architecture and sculpture and materials like metal, chrome, and glass. But nowadays modern mix interiors are a highly personalized interpretation of today’s world that can range from eclectic, a mix of the old and new and a twist of funky. Modern Mix interiors always let in the excitement of living on purpose.
These interiors are reflective of a mix of periods and styles and visual layering. There is an unexpected use of materials and accessories and a uniqueness in art and furnishings. It’s marrying together pattern, shape, texture, finish and color and old mixes with new. It’s a fun celebration of contrasts.
Interiors embrace the natural world through the use of texture, color and the integration of indoors and out. Inspired by nature, they reflect warm and cozy, earthy and quiet. Real, sustainable and local materials predominate and there is a deep sense of comfort and tranquility. Seldom formal, allowing the spirit of the ease of living.
New Traditional Modern life has revitalized the old with the freedom to mix finishes and periods with modern elements to jazz things up a tad. Heavier furniture and period details are balanced by simplicity. Formal furniture has more comfort, sleeker forms and personal touches without sacrificing the classic style of the familiar.
