GEOMETRY OF A CONTEMPORARY HOME

Every color has a certain impact on a décor. It’s simply a matter of style and looks. A color such as the best of  yellow, for example, is bright and eye-catching and it would be a cheerful addition to a space such as the living room. In this home, a  yellow couch is the centerpiece of the room. The question that remains in a contemporary interior design is “how will you decorate the space around it?” Simple with Greys & Whites!

 

Well, the options aren’t numerous. One idea we used were prints and patterns on the wall to integrate the yellow sofa into the living room without making it seem out of place. The accent pillows are quirky and fun and they combine well with the yellow on the sofa.

We’ve said this numerous times: yellow and gray are two colors that work beautifully together. They compliment each other nicely. One is fun and vibrant and the other one is dark and neutral. Together they create the perfect balance.

What we enjoy most about this seating area is the way the colors on the abstract wall frames reiterate throughout the space in various forms and blends in nicely.

If you prefer a décor that’s warm, welcoming and elegant without standing out in a bright or opulent way, this tone of yellow seems like a perfect choice, especially in combination with the golden wood finish and the surrounding neutrals. After all that’s a key to contemporary interior design!

But not all yellows have to be that bright and flashy. Mellow tones like greys can be very beautiful as well and they combine well with light wooden surfaces and with other soft colors. A sofa such as this one can be the unexpected touch of color in a neutral décor.yello

Ethnic Interior Decor – An Apartment tickled by Colour…

Tickled by colour, Kaushik and his mother quite liked the idea of using warm colours & patterns and bringing in a touch of ethnicity into their small apartment. Personally, I thought an ethnic touch in this house would be a unique way to bring in all their tangibles  in a classic and electrifying style. Hence, ethnic interior decor it was!

So, after choosing a theme, I began working towards two key elements  the “texture and rich colours”. If you look into the history of Indian designs, you will notice that the Indians have an inclination for rich, warm colors. Reds, yellows and oranges have always been the first choice of  any Indian in terms of traditional interior design. I needed to keep one thing in mind, i.e the space was small, any design or colour would still maintain its openness.

Ethnic Living Room

In the living room,  I collaborated  bright red color on the furniture and the color blue on the entertainment centre which soothes the small space keeping it open and airy. The Madhubani wall mural with its splash of colour and its tradtional ikat print curtains balances the bold yet minimalist look in the living space. Gives rise to the ethnic interior decor.

The idea of wall art can be explored in a very creative and beautiful way. I wanted to create an effect of a cozy seating in the shade of a beautiful tree to bring in the nature. You could do this in your home. Great way to utilize a bare wall in the Indian way, right?

Floral Bedroom

We Indians are known for our colours and textiles, which are incorporated everywhere from window treatments to throw pillows to wall hangings. Here, in the master bedroom, the bed was injected with a beautiful hand-made Rajasthani throw and throw pillows in assorted patterns.

Kaushik’s mother loves flowers, hence we decided to incorporate floral designs which, for her, are like breath of fresh air. We chose floral design wallpaper as a back splash for her bedroom which enhanced the look and she claims it triggers happy thoughts and pleasant disposition.

The simple functional wardrobe was also adorned with a little hand-painted dresser in the corner to bring in the splash of colour to the expanse of rusty wooden browns.

Moving to the second bedroom, small as it was, for a single young mad, we decided to keep the colours fresh and neutral. Here, I chose a combination of blue and dark brown to give it a solid wood effect. With a back splash of a cool blue wall paper and the solid dark brown bed, study table and wardrobe, the room had a calming vibe. A mixed geometric pattern of stripes  added to the visual interest.

So this was a walk through this small yet cozy home of the Chugs. Nevertheless it is always good to look for  a color scheme that runs through each style and suits every temperature. I sure loved doing this home and had a wonderful time imagining it as my own.
