The many moods of mod­ern de­sign

Cecil Whig - - OURCECIL -

— With roots dat­ing back to the 1920’s and 1930’s, mod­ern in­te­rior de­sign en­com­passes a wide va­ri­ety of aes­thet­ics and moods. From an ur­ban in­dus­trial loft to a sleek beach house, the ver­sa­til­ity of mod­ern de­sign can morph to match a va­ri­ety of en­vi­ron­ments. Whether you pre­fer raw spa­ces and re­claimed ma­te­ri­als or crisp lines and min­i­mal em­bel­lish­ment, there’s a mod­ern fla­vor to fit your per­sonal style. Euro­pean min­i­mal­ism Syn­ony­mous for sim­plic­ity and func­tion­al­ity, Euro­pean min­i­mal­ism is well versed in the no­tion of less is more. Clean lines and sim­ple or­na­men­ta­tion al­low for an open, nat­u­ral flow, while a muted color scheme and light wood floors cre­ate the foun­da­tion of a calm­ing space. The neu­tral pal­ette is bal­anced with rich tex­tures, mixed ma­te­ri­als and nat­u­ral light­ing to in­vite guests in with­out of­fer­ing over­whelm­ing dis­trac­tions. Un­fin­ished in­dus­trial Draw­ing in­spi­ra­tion from fac­to­ries and ware­houses, ex­posed brick, re­claimed wood and un­fin­ished met­als de­liver a func­tion­ally


min­i­mal aes­thetic. This de­sign ap­proach strips spa­ces down to their bare essence and brings struc­tural com­po­nents to the fore­ground. In­cor­po­rat­ing sleek fix­tures with pur­pose­ful de­tails brings a mod­ern sen­ti­ment to a vin­tage space. With a sim­plis­ti­cally beau­ti­ful bent tube spout, the Litze Bath Col­lec­tion by Brizo ex­em­pli­fies the fu­sion of cre­ativ­ity and man­u­fac­tur­ing. Thought­ful de­tails such as three dis­tinc­tive han­dle op­tions and tex­tu­ral knurl­ing ac­cents through­out the col­lec­tion de­note stun­ning crafts­man­ship with an in­dus­trial feel. Bold con­tem­po­rary Bold con­tem­po­rary is an eye­catch­ing twist on mod­ern de­sign. Cou­pled with a neu­tral back­drop, con­tem­po­rary de­sign de­tails — such as pops of color or geo­met­ric shapes — bring a space to life. Warm fin­ishes of­fer a con­trast to a cool black-and-white pal­ette, while or­ganic el­e­ments, such as air plants or bam­boo, keep the space from be­com­ing too stark. In­cor­po­rat­ing tex­tured gold tones, such as the Brizo Bril­liance Luxe Gold fin­ish, against a monochro­matic back­ground de­liv­ers a so­phis­ti­cated take on mod­ern de­sign. Faucets, fit­tings and ac­ces­sories in this same fin­ish help cre­ate a co­he­sive, bold look through­out the space. Ur­ban Zen Min­i­mal­ist in de­sign, ur­ban Zen uti­lizes the sim­plic­ity of clean lines and a warm neu­tral color pal­ette to pro­vide a serene, quiet home de­sign. In­fused with nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als, this mod­ern de­sign ap­proach brings the out­doors in­side with el­e­ments such as rock tiled show­ers, bam­boo floor­ing or stone sinks. Soft col­ors such as cream, taupe, gray and gold com­ple­ment the nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als to de­liver a sooth­ing spa-like ex­pe­ri­ence.
