With so much emphasis on sleek modern spaces, it's nice to enjoy a little extravagant inspiration from time to time. The two homes explored below share many features with neoclassical design, an elegant and intricate style that appeared in the mid-1700s and retained its popularity until the early 1800s. Neoclassicism arose in direct response to the perceived busyness and frivolity of the rococo style – making it the minimalism of its time. Neoclassicism was a revival of Greek Classicism, and interestingly enough, Art Deco was too – both styles share roots despite having opposite intentions. First, let's look at a space that takes an updated approach to the classic Louis XVI style, titled Chateau Margaux. It has a dark and comfortable theme yet avoids feeling imposing. In fact, the darker colors actually help the sophisticated space feel even more comfortable and intimate. It's a truly incredible take on neoclassical era design: not a reproduction but a very creative interpretation.
You may have heard or read minimalism in home interior designing and in modern furniture. So what exactly does this mean? As stated above, minimalism in design is the use of the fewest and barest elements or essentials. The traditional way of furnishing a home is having plenty of furniture. Minimalism, on the other hand, is having modern furniture that is practical and functional. It is about organizing your home and minimizing clutter by removing what is not needed and keeping only the essential items. This is the goal of modern furniture – to be multipurpose. To have a minimalist home design, you need to have serviceable furniture that serves more than one purpose. The following factors will help you choose furniture to have minimalism in your home.
Common Elements. There are a few common elements that tend to be found in urban industrial spaces. They include, but are not limited to: Exposed brick walls, Cements floors, Raw, unfinished materials, Sleek, metal and glass, lighting, Exposed beams, Stainless steel accents. Get the Look. The key to achieving a no-frills industrial chic look is simplicity. Avoid excess furniture and accessories and keep only what's needed. The interest and depth in the space will be found in the mix of textures and patina. Start with a neutral color palette (grey, white, black beige), then layer in some warm wood tones. Look for woods that have some wear and tear. Scratches, knots, and nicks will just add to the authenticity of the look. Be sure to also add plenty of metal. Whether it's metal windows and railings, or metal furniture and lighting, galvanized metals and steel will combine brilliantly with the wood. If you have exposed beams, pipes or brick in your space leave them as is. Industrial chic spaces are often wide, open rooms that feature these elements.
