This alludes to the central function of urban interiors which is to create space, sometimes in surprising ways. Combination living/working spaces have become traditional in inner cities and industrial areas, often referred to as studio apartments. Renovated warehouses might feature a concrete floor for large scale artwork or production and an upper loft for a living space. Industrial building converted into high-rise apartments, up scale condominiums and mixed-use buildings are other innovations to urban living spaces and rather that fighting the existing industrial feature within these spaces Urban interior design embraces them.
Worried your all-white home might come off a little too sterile? Whether it’s a sleek, modern space or a homey, Scandinavian-style interior, touches of natural elements and greenery will help to make your space feel more livable and welcoming. Try bringing in potted plants or flowers for a hint of leafy warmth. Or, consider rustic materials like linen, ceramics and leather for a polished yet down-to-earth vibe.
Rather, colours help to define and complete an all-white space, not stray it away from its theme. Incorporate one or two colourful pieces of furniture; or, you could paint your door in a different color (that also doubles as a visual feature at home). If you’re feeling less adventurous, bring in these colours through smaller accessories or soft furnishings. Just remember, add tinges of colour – not bucket-loads of them.
Whites with cool undertones (blue or green) work great for homes with ample afternoon sunlight. As the space takes on an orangey tone, cooler whites to help balance hues out. Alternatively, whites with warm undertones (orange) are better for homes that are slightly dimmer, to mimic that natural sunlight ‘glow’ in a space.
