Balancing Functionality and Style
Interior decor is not only about fun colors and decorative. It’s a blend of functionality and style. In most cases, your personality will dictate your style. If you’re the kind of person that detests claustrophobic spaces, you are likely to stick to a minimalist theme with subtle decorative elements. Check out this contemporary apartment by NOW DESIGN.
The living room, which plays the functional role of a rela or entertainment area, has a big gray, white couch and two or three throw pillows for some extra comfort. Since the room adopts an open plan concept, the dining area is distinguished by the dark colors that slightly contrasts the couch. Walls, on the other hand, provide a sharp contrast with their black textural appearance.
Every other room, from bedrooms to kitchen to study room flow with the minimalist approach by making use of whites, grays or light browns. Different pieces of furniture placed in the bedroom are very few and strictly functional but at the same time stylish. In addition, plants, flowers, and artistic frames are placed in every other room to prevent monotony from creeping in. They add depth and life to the house. The children’s room, however, adopts light pink and blue colors which have an impeccable ability to spark a feeling of calmness.
In a nutshell, it all narrows down to ensuring a room is functional while at the same time it reflects your personality.
