Discussing a particular interior, we use a variety of characteristics. And among them there is such a thing as “expensive” the interior is designed in style and looking impressive. And there is such a thing as “rich” for too flashy, not combined interior sound with sarcasm.
Why are these originally similar in meaning of words in this context carry a different meaning? How not to break that line and what you need to know to create “expensive” interior, we asked interior designer Irina Fefilova.
Naturally, money played a major role. The investment will enable us to attract professionals who will develop a good project and will advise you not to skimp on building materials and interior items, advise on lighting and atmosphere and will do everything properly. However, even a good budget can’t guarantee a perfectly balanced design. To achieve balance you need to consider some points.
From one extreme to another
Interiors with good budget are often limited to one of the extremes.
The first is the predictability and the loss of identity. All too clearly and correctly. This is a good option for public areas where a personal approach is not required, however, for home interior is not the best option.
The second extreme is too much ideas. Like a few paragraphs out of different books — all complements each other, and Vice versa — every little thing trying to draw attention to themselves. This approach makes the environment chaotic and scattered.
The Golden mean important in the interior as anywhere else. Do not have to wear a bright design idea. Most importantly — a wholesome style, the harmony of each subject and colors to create a complete view of the room.
Detail is an important part of the interior. They complete and enrich the overall picture. Work on the little things can be a decisive factor in creating the image. It is a versatile option for big-budget project, and ordinary interior. Everything looks harmonious, when every detail supports the overall style. Battery, window frames, skirting boards and so on.
And some unexpected details can be a wonderful fireworks display, adding brightness to the interior and revealing it fully.
Taste and bad taste
Expensive projects have the right and even the obligation to be unique in every way to show their personality. There are a variety of ways of expression that can carry a completely different message. For example, to emphasize a large area of space as an interesting art object and a gold-plated columns.
Both decisions have a right to exist and perform one task — to show the scale of the place. But there is one significant difference — the mood they are different.
Imagine a house with high ceilings and huge square and place in the premises of standard furniture. It will look like a doll. Small lamps, sofas with low backs, ordinary Desk — it looks out of place in this room. Furnish the interior of this magnitude is not simple. It is important to calculate all the proportions and to choose the necessary furniture.
Selection of color and light
This is one of the important factors in creating the “expensive” interior. Sometimes in those dark colors that looks like a winner, and neutral paint can ruin the whole picture. Output — brand paints, clearly matched to the size of the room and artificial lighting.
To provide need and the work of lighting designers who create different lighting scenarios in every room depending on its purpose.
It is also important to consider the combination of colors with each other. For example: in a room with seasoned business style may not be bright, colorful paint. Each color must complement each other.
Inner peace in the interior
Not in the interior forget about the reflection of the owner. The generated image must be created around the person living in this place. The interior is like a book about a person, about his Hobbies, the concept of beauty and comfort, the peculiarities of his life and lifestyle. The work of the designer lies in the subtle approach to creating atmosphere, so it needs to be a sincere man and excellent psychologist to create the right conditions in the house.
Options display personality may be different. For example, you can add space objects “memories” — antique, vintage items, items from the past. You can refer to any cultural identity, transferring it by any means the national colors. You can start from Hobbies — subjects of sports, arts and various interesting ideas.
Gold — the new trend
“Dear” the interior is often associated with gold. Many reach inappropriate gilding everything. But this new trend is to use with caution: it is not necessary to gild the doors, chandeliers and order furniture with gilding. Everything is good in moderation.
The use of gold in small details and small accessories will add a subtle sense of luxury. Gilding needs to sound like a hint of elegance, not as a cry for wealth. Give your interior elegance and sophistication, as in the interior of any style and budget the main thing to not Express their wealth, and their sense of the beautiful and the sublime.
