As you explore the world of interior design, you can quickly notice trends. Interior design usually evolves over time, and while some styles simply become obsolete, others become perfect and evolve. Another interesting habit we tend to recognize is when two very opposing styles get blended together and can create a charming atmosphere when done correctly. If you are looking to combine new with old, look no further. Vintage Modern Design is the perfect balance of these two contrasting styles. To accomplish this look, just pay attention to a few key components:
When you look at vintage design, you will notice very ornate detail-this is a highly lavished look with intricate woodwork, trim, and pronounced patterns. Bulky furniture and beautiful fireplaces thrive in these environments. They can easily be noted by some of the keen detail used throughout the architecture in the environment.
On the other hand, modern design is very minimalistic. It is more about functionality rather than aesthetics. This does not mean that modern design does not have an aesthetic appeal. Most modern designs will use very sleek lines and an open layout to allow for many materials such as plastics, woods, and metals. This simple atmosphere will always feel open and airy.
The Melting Pot
So, what do you get when you mix the two together? Well, this style is the beginning of Scandinavian styling. While it is not fully there, it does adapt many of the basic elements. The open layout is borrowed from modern with simple décor; however, very lavished patterns and focal point furniture is also a key element. You can easily see the best of both worlds when entering the atmosphere.
Adding this to your home is a great way to enhance your space. It takes time to find the perfect balance between the two designs, so consider allowing your furniture and décor to be modern while embracing more vintage trim, flooring, wallpaper, and decorative fireplace. While this is not the only way to accomplish this style, it can help get your wheels turning.
