Necessity is the Mother of Invention…or so they say! Inspired distinctively by the 21st Century urban culture, Modern Urban interior
design is a fusion of complimentary as well as opposing design elements from different eras. Stemming from minimalist modern and taking cues from its cosmopolitan environment, urban modern adds a glamorous ethnic chik and on the edge design to its mechanism.
Inspired by global accents, urban furniture lends its stylish and in vogue look to any home. Setting the mindset of the decorator, the furniture- beds, sofas, end tables, etc tend to be low and sleek instead of the
larger look. Options for decorative accessories like mirrors, coffee tables,pillows, rugs ask for a creative edge and an artistic touch. The decor can be a blend in of vintage items carrying the ethnic heirloom with some modern elegant geometrical designs. For instance pair a mid century coffee table in the living room with an ethnic middle eastern rug. The city dwellers develop cosmopolitan yet chic taste which is reflected essentially in their Urban decor.
The favourite hues of the Urban Mod are gold or copper coloured furniture. The elementary function of the urban décor is to create more room and offer a casual yet lively ambience for your home.
Industrial decor is often this rustic and mature look that makes us look back to the turn-of-the-century industrial era. The key feature here is the exposed brick walls which accentuate the liberal use of exposed steel with distressed wooden elements. Ceilings tend to be very high to highlight the tone of the industrial look. To deepen the moods further include copper or steel tone accents in the furniture and accessories.
Depending on personal preferences you can opt for a dark antique look or lighter, chic looking furniture representing the more industrial era. In terms of general feel, industrial decor goes equally well with elaborate ornamentations or the opposite of it, the orderly vintage look.
Galvanized steel, concrete floors and metal sliding doors set in the atmosphere further for Industrial Decor. Furniture around the house tends to be low, sleek and modular. Accessories are more utilitarian, light fixtures are more of task lights and windows are unornamented squares. Make sure to add copper or steel brackets for that extra finish.
