If fashion is about dressing to impress, the same can be said about interior design — homes should be given similar attention. Spaces reflect your personality and individuality. It is a representation of boldness, joy and the hidden pizzazz in you.
However, it is considered a mandatory breach in the world of interior design when spaces look ‘unconventional’ in terms of clashing colours, loud prints and contrasting furniture pieces. Logic tells us to choose something ‘safe’; putting functionality and practicality over the simple rules of aesthetics. While your idea of aesthetics may be different from others, it is okay to sometimes play along with the idea of creating ‘fun whimsical spaces’.
Famous designers like Karim Rashid, Patricia Urquiola and Marcel Wanders are not the kind who would go for conventional basics. There is no room for ‘matchy-matchy’ – it is monotonous and boring. Break conventions: stop putting things in pairs, put large furniture in small spaces and paint your wall with a colour. Stash symmetry away and stop sticking to one style throughout your home.
Inspire yourself with these bold interior design ideas that dare you to make decisions without fear. Let your creativity fly along with original and outstanding spaces, synonymous with your personal style.
