How to Use Abstract Interior Design in Your Home
The Fresh Season is all about giving your home, your challenges and your space a totally fresh start. Within this Season, we will focus on 4 distinct design styles so you can dip your toes into different ways to decorate your challenges and your home.
What is this style?
Are you a lover of abstract art? The trendy interior design style is inspired by abstract art and uses clean lines, an emphasis on patterns and geometric shapes. The key to this style is using bold statement pieces like furniture, lighting and art and pairing them with neutral-colored elements, allowing things to really pop.
So what’s important to remember in abstract interior design?
Play With Color
A main aspect of this modern style is color. There aren’t specific colors you must use, but the idea is to be bold. But not bold all over, of course. Oftentimes abstract rooms balance bold colors with neutral colors, or use mostly neutral colors to allow a specific statement piece pop. Think a beige room with a blue, red and orange piece of art. Or a purple accent chair.
Consider a Statement Piece
Have you found an incredible turquoise couch that you simply can’t live without? You’re on your way to decorating with abstract interior design. Abstract interior design works well when building a room around a focal point. This can be furniture, art, a rug. Let the focal point dictate where the rest of the furniture is placed and what colors are used.
Use Shapes & Patterns
Abstract interior design mimics modern design in that it comes to life when patterns with geometric shapes are used. Think patterns with clean lines and shapes. Geometry doesn’t only pertain to patterns. Furniture and art can create clean lines, as well. There are a lot of couches, chairs, rugs, art, and other elements that can bring beautiful abstract patterns and shapes into your design.
Don’t Forget the Finishing Touches
As with any design style, the details are what really matters. Hanging an abstract piece of art you really connect with on the walls is definitely the way to go. How about a pillow with a beautiful geometric design? And lighting should never be overlooked. What about a metal geometric chandelier or a modern lamp in a bold color? Lighting can even be your focal point if done the right way.
The abstract interior design style is definitely one you should consider when decorating your home.
