2022•08•02

Nevertheless, every interior design style is different from another. Designing an art deco interior design is different from designing a coastal or a minimalist interior design.

WHAT IS MAXIMALIST INTERIOR DESIGN?

Maximalist interior design style takes a more-is-more approach with layers of patterns and colors, oversized objects with unconventional shapes, and rooms where we spot design objects in every inch. For instance, maximalist interior design often decor ceilings with bold colors or patterns and showcases an array of eclectic homeware.

HOW TO DESIGN A MAXIMALIST INTERIOR WITH NEUTRALS?

If you want to create a maximalist interior with neutral colors, stick to the color palette and be as bold as you can dream of. Curate furniture pieces and design objects that are oversized, eccentric, and blend in with art pieces.

BRUTALIST

WHAT IS BRUTALIST INTERIOR DESIGN?

Brutalist design is a design style that emerged in the post-World War II era. This design style is predominant in architecture. Most people associate brutalist design with brutalist architecture. This is due to the “monstrous” buildings made from concrete to provide housing for people after the devastation and poverty that resulted from the war. This is why brutalist design became hated in the late 70s – it was associated with poverty, urban decay and soviet regimes.

In addition to raw concrete, brutalist design is represented by industrial materials such as wood, glass, steel, brass, and brick. In terms of shapes and forms, brutalist design is either organic – with rough and unpolished textures – or extremely minimal and streamlined, caring for function over anything else.

HOW TO DESIGN A BRUTALIST INTERIOR WITH NEUTRALS?

Design a brutalist interior with furniture pieces made of natural materials – glass, wood, metal, and stone – with chunky, blocky furniture pieces that mimic the fascinating brutalist buildings. Respecting the natural color and texture of materials is another feature that will help you to pull off a brutalist interior design project.

Therefore, upholstery with stripes with a stylish and efficient way of decorating a coastal interior design with neutrals.

RUSTIC

WHAT IS RUSTIC INTERIOR DESIGN?

Rustic interior design style relates to a natural and pared-back style and favors simplicity and authenticity over prominent design displays. While the meaning of the word itself might suggest anything rural or country, in interior design, it can include a range of styles, from farmhouse to log cabin, to coastal and Tuscan.

Rustic homes are usually decorated with antique or vintage finds, bunches of wildflowers or greenery, raw or reclaimed timber and stone, plus natural fabrics like cotton, canvas, and linen.

HOW TO DESIGN A RUSTIC INTERIOR WITH NEUTRALS?

Choose natural materials such as wood, stone, leather, cotton, and botanical silk. However, choose these materials soulfully. Travertine furniture, for instance, is a great option for decorating a rustic style home. Combine it with other stones, such as white marble or sandy onyx, and with wood furniture pieces and decorative objects.

WHAT IS MIDCENTURY MODERN INTERIOR DESIGN?

One of the most influential design movements of the 20th century, the effect of the midcentury modern interior design is still being felt today. It relates to the surge of creativity that originated from the post-World War II boom of the late ’40s, the ’50s and ’60s. As a result, mid-century style is grounded in simple, functional forms, organic or natural-inspired shapes, and democratic design.

Architecturally speaking, the geometric lines and large windows are still prescient in modern homes. The design can be incorporated easily into many interiors — mid-century pairs well with the warm, earthy colors of the ’70s.

Pick out furniture pieces with clean lines and sober silhouettes. Feel free to combine different fabrics and materials. To give a true midcentury modern vibe to your neutral interior design project, dare to add some pops of color with decorative objects like pillows.
