Setting up a new home can be a daunting prospect. After dealing with real estate agents, moving companies and sorting out all the boring practicalities such as utility accounts, the next step is making your new flat or house feel like a home. On the up-side, a new space means a marvellous opportunity to have fresh interior design. Rather than doing the same old thing, why not step it up a notch and go for a seriously sophisticated interior design idea?!
Sophisticated home interior design combines a modern, elegant approach to the decorative elements and and furniture used throughout the space. Important elements to consider include the materials used, the lines which break up the space and color accents employed to create a sense of visual continuity. In fact the overall color scheme is perhaps the most important factor in creating a sophisticated home design. Selecting the most suitable colors may sound like an easy task but it often takes a professional touch to navigate the myriad colour combinations available and bring together complementary tones to create the kind of atmosphere desired.
Each room provides the opportunity to create a special atmosphere. So after you’re done with the dull house moving tasks, why not have some fun and transform each space into an environment which is aesthetically pleasing as well as practical. Starting with the kitchen, consider bright colours which reflect the fun of cooking and eating in what is considered most to be the heart of the home. Yellow, blue and red are fantastically cherry colours you can use as accents on cupboards and skirting boards that will inject the room with a lively look. Decorate with original handmade objects such as a calender, prints, tea-towels and wall art to elevate room and make it a truly unique space .
Depending on your taste, the living room can be a refined, elegant space, or a rich and homey interior, or stark minimalist space. Neutral tones and natural materials make for a quietly refined interior design. Plenty of soft furnishings in rich colours, an array of objects d’art and books create a warm, homey atmosphere. If minimalism is your thing, take inspiration from the Japanese and strip away the unnecessary elements of the interior, using black lines to draw the eye around the space..
Bedrooms are perhaps the most important space to feel relaxed in the home. Choose a color scheme and interior decorating style which truly reflects you and is appropriate for sleeping in. Blue and green have known calming effects and make wonderful bedroom wall colours. Of course if you want to do something exotic, look around the world for style tips. For example Morocco interior design is a riot of colour, embroidery and silver accents and can work well when employed in a bedroom setting.
