Add contrast to your interior with the City Chic style
There are several ways to create contrast in your interior. Think of colours, shapes and materials. You achieve the best result by applying contrasts of all three variants. The City Chic atmosphere is ideal for this! When you are busy compiling your interior, a mood board ensures that you can capture these contrasts at a glance in a clear whole. This way you can also easily remove and add elements to see which contrasts best suit your taste and interior.
Color is one of the easiest ways to bring contrast to your interior. Frequently used contrasts are cool-warm and light-dark. With a few simple adjustments you can add colors that contrast with the basic colors in your interior. For example, paint a wall, place plants or add home accessories such as colored candles, vases and decorative cushions.
Cool vs. Hot
Both corner sofa Diane in fabric Bodega and color Steel as it carpet Landro in the color mix 22 are light gray and therefore cool in color. The warm golden color accents of the home accessories create a nice cool-warm contrast. The decorative cushions and plaid in warm tones contrast beautifully with the sofa, just like the golden vases behind it.
Light vs. Dark
In this interior, the light-dark contrast can be seen in the dining area. Here is chosen for a light table and dark dining room chairs. The dark colors are emphasized by the black window frames.
Creating contrast with shapes often works best with large elements. You want the different shapes you use to actually have an effect. So do this especially with the furniture in your interior and reinforce the contrast with home accessories in different shapes. Shape contrasts to think about are round-straight and high-low.
Round vs. Straight
The straight corner sofa Diane and the straight carpet Landro immediately stand out in this interior. It is therefore important that round or organic furniture is also placed to create the round-straight contrast. In this set, the round coffee table, the semi-circular side table and the organic dining table for a contrast to the straight furniture. To give these round shapes more power, you also see round lamps, round vases and a round mirror.
High vs. Low
The high-low contrast is perfect to apply to the table styling. On the dining table you see a combination of high and low candlesticks and on the side table are high and low vases. A tip to easily create height is to use plants and branches.
The material contrast is probably one of the tricky variants. Materials are very decisive for your interior and combining materials is quite a challenge for some. So don't make it too difficult for yourself and choose, for example, the contrasts matte-gloss and soft-hard.
Matte vs. shine
In this City Chic interior, the matte-gloss contrast should not be missed. This contrast creates a very chic effect. The matt base of the floor and walls contrast with the large glossy carpet. The matte dining table also forms a contrast to the velvet chairs and brass table decoration.
Soft vs. Hard
Soft materials often make an interior chic and hard materials provide a tough look. By combining them you get interior the best of both worlds. The wooden dining table in combination with the chairs that are covered with velvet, form an attractive whole. This contrast is also created by the soft fluffy carpet on the hard floor.So.
