In interior design, the creative approach of designers often creates unusual but successful and attractive mixes of familiar styles. The exclusive use of a prevailing style in the interior is no longer fashionable.
However, the search for syncretism in design is not trend New. The challenge of reconciling two or more different styles seduces many contemporary designers and artists from various art fields. Not only is it possible to create something completely new, based on familiar styles that have stood the test of time, but sometimes surprisingly good results.
In this article we will present two examples of interior design where two of the most modern designs are mixed today: the industrial and the rustic.
The mix of styles in the interior
At first glance, these two styles seem quite difficult, if not impossible, to combine by their opposite properties. Even their names evoke two completely different worlds. The adjective rustic it means land, rural, while industry is connected with the city and the production factories.
But let’s take a closer look at what each style consists of. On the one hand is the notion of modern rustic style (a term that has become very popular) that implies rustic charm and warmth combined with modern comfort.
The modern rustic style – definition
The key to a modern rustic space is maintaining and exposing an open floor plan, modern furniture and natural architectural elements. The color scheme is very simple, natural colors dominate like natural wood, green and dark red, beige and the other neutral colors.
The large windows that open onto a natural landscape are characteristic of the style. This style has an informal elegance and the message he conveys sounds like this: live a comfortable and modern life in harmony with nature!
Wood and raw stone
This is perhaps the most important feature of a modern country house. Lovers of this style want to bring nature into their homes. If it is an old house, it is important to preserve the character and the original architectural details. When a new one is built, its beams can be left blank and reclaimed wood used or a stone fireplace can be incorporated into the design.
When choosing this style of interior design, you should never forget the fifth wall: the ceiling. A-shaped houses with wood-paneled ceilings are very popular.
Interior decoration – industrial style
It is a trend in interior decoration that finds inspiration in old factories and industrial spaces. These rooms have been converted into modern houses in recent years. The industrial style is characterized by the use of eroded wood, building systems, visual stone, industrial lighting and concrete.
The most commonly used decorative elements are exposed brick, pipes, concrete floors, large windows. The design elements and materials used give the room an unfinished feeling. The color palette includes natural and neutral colors, but mostly cold.
In the gallery of photos that we present to you today, we see a splendid mixture of these two styles: the modern rustic and the industrial. You will be surprised how harmonious this interior looks like and the question will be asked: Is a new style created in the interior? and if so, what’s the name of it – rustic industrial or industrial rustic?
The modern country-style décor blends with the industrial style of living. The combination of rustic furniture with accents and industrial ideas gives an interesting contrast. The concrete floors and recovered metal are interspersed with the warm shades of wood and natural rattan. We have selected two solid examples here.
Of the two examples that can be seen here, one is an attic that looks as if almost everything is lost in it, and newly found objects or perhaps salvaged from an abandoned industrial building.
The other house is impregnated with tradition, there are many decorative pieces designed especially for the room, but juxtaposed by concrete and modern style. See how the balance between industrial and rustic style was created to achieve something original and interesting. And why not put this way a new trend in the interior?
