Element By White Interior Design

In the early years of brick making the natural process of using mud, clay and water and firing it at high temperatures to produce a solid and sturdy building component material were born. Today in modern design the appeal of brick is untouched by many materials. Its uniformity in pattern makes a gorgeous backdrop for urban lofts as well as adds texture and color to any room. Choose to leave brick in its natural state as a focal point or paint over brick to use it as a subtle backdrop to showcase its reveals.

Let’s face it: Whether you’re designing a room for the guy in your life, or you’re a guy looking to upgrade your decor, you’ve got to have at least one leather piece—though more than one is by no means out of the question.

Also, on the man-made side of the equation, metallics continue to be a preferred texture. A smooth-finished counterpoint to rough stone, brick, or wood, metallic finishes can be used in small doses through accessories and lighting fixtures, or on larger pieces, such as a credenza. The masculine kitchen seen here is a wonderful mix of textures, blending brick, stone, and strong metallic finishes—including the oxidized metal of the support beam.

The problem with Interior Design is a lot many people confuse it with Interior Decoration. While the former refers to designing an entire living space from scratch, the latter refers to decorating an existent living space with added furniture and upholstery. Interior Design is indeed a science that is bound by its own elements and principles and yes, it is not as simple as one imagines it to be! Generally interior designers go by the rule book that states that ‘There are 7 elements and 7 principles of Interior Design’.

10 Ways to Bring Natural & Organic Elements into Your Interiors

One of the reasons we love nature so much is our inherent connection to the outdoors and to natural elements that are living or decor that was living such as wood, cotton, leather and seagrass to name a few. Choosing materials that resonate with your personal style is the first step for bringing them into your home. One homeowner may enjoy the rugged nature of natural rock walls in their kitchen – while another may prefer the more sophisticated flair of dark mahogany flooring in their living room. Choose natural elements that incorporate your style and connect you to your interiors.

So when you’re ready to take on your next man-cave overhaul, skip the AstroTurf carpet and foam finger wall art and try creating a space with these six elements of modern, masculine design.

Whether you call it modern minimalism, a Scandinavian saturation, or just a sheer love affair with neutrals, it’s impossible to escape just how popular all-white interiors have become. Choosing an all-white colour scheme may seem like the safe option, but there’s a world of difference between a fabulously chic aesthetic and a stark, bland space. We’re sharing our top dos and don’ts when decorating an all-white interior, so you can achieve all white perfection in your home.

Is there any room in the house that you love to relax & get rejuvenated for the new day than your bathroom? Connecting your body to water and heat can transport your mind and soul to serenity and calmness. There is no better way to complete your bathroom sanctuary than with natural materials. Wood walls like this bathroom are inspired by a dry heat sauna, while the minimal lines of the fixtures and natural daylighting are ideal for creating that one-of-a-kind bathing experience with nature.

Do you remember when the only greenery you used to see in people’s homes were artificial and usually covered with a thin layer of dust! These days nature is finding its way into more and more interiors in the real and natural state as flowers, potted plants such as succulents have created easy ways to bring natural appeal to your dining room table, coffee side table or front foyer table. In the past the upkeep of tending to houseplants was looked at as a chore. Today, planting indoor bulbs, or keeping low maintenance plants such as succulents, cactus, or just adorning your home office desk with a fresh bouquet can instantly cheer up any room.

With the reemergence of green living and conserving the Earth’s precious resources there has been a renewed interest in homeowners finding building products that have been recycled and used in new ways, reclaimed from other building projects or repurposed into new functions. From old wood railroad ties being used in ceiling support beams to give a rustic appeal to your room to lumber yards supplying contractors and builders with reclaimed and locally sourced wood products – think of these ideas when remodeling your home.

Many homeowners complain that natural materials are expensive and tend to ditch the idea of using it in their home remodeling projects. Instead of scrapping the idea why not use less of it? An accent stone wall can be just as gorgeous as an entire room adorned with the same product. If natural materials are still out of your remodeling budget why not try veneer products? Pre-engineered, laminates and veneer stone applications offer the look of nature without the high cost. While these may not work in every application, look to a home design specialist to help you price out materials that will make a natural design statement!

Leather is one of those quintessentially masculine materials that works in just about any space that aims for a manly aesthetic. Large pieces like Chesterfield sofas or side chairs are the perfect anchor pieces for masculine spaces, bringing a timeless, classic feel that you can build on with various textures, accessories, and art. Best of all, leather can be found in a variety of colors, from black to warm browns and even white, so in whatever way you choose to incorporate leather, it can have a big impact on your room.

While bringing natural finishes into your home isn’t a new concept. The concept of bringing nature to every room of your interiors is a game changer for many homeowners. Whether you look to organic sheets and bedding in your bedroom adorned with birds and rustic leaves or you enjoy a bubbling Zen fountain in your home office, nature can find itself into any space of your life. Design your room around what makes you emotionally charged, excited, calmed or soothed and feel how nature plays a role in your interiors. 

Be too perfect when working with all white, it’s good to keep styling loose and informal. White as a tone does tend to have more serious and sterile connotations and vibes, therefore, it is imperative that you balance this with relaxed and gentle feels via your styling, furnishing and decor choices.

Generally, you can’t go wrong with a strong geometric pattern in a man’s space. Masculine design is all about clean lines and sharp edges (as opposed to the curves and colors of more feminine styles), so having geometric patterns on textiles and accessories allows you to weave that aesthetic all throughout your space.

Wood furniture is one of the most popular as it is durable, beautiful and wood can be finished in any way imaginable. Look to artisan crafted furniture if you prefer a rustic and country appeal to your interiors, or look to antique wood bedroom and living furniture to bring back the nostalgia of early turn of the century home living. If your interiors prefer a contemporary appeal, wood furniture with minimal lines that is free from ornamentation can create show-stopping appeal in your kitchen bar stools or in your sleek headboard in your bedroom.

Add metallic or timber touches into more sterile areas of an all-white interior such as the bathroom or kitchen. Think hardware features in copper or brass and timber accent detailing to help add warmth and definition. Even decor in metallic or wooden finishes can help to make all the difference in these rooms.

2. Line Lines give birth to forms and shapes and are responsible for establishing a sense of harmony, contrast and unity (3 of the 7 principles) in a living space. They define shapes and act as visual guides of an interior space. Lines are broadly categorized into three types – Horizontal, Vertical and Dynamic. While horizontal lines adorn structures likes tables, chairs and beds, vertical lines can be found on windows, doorways and almirahs. While horizontal lines add a safe and secure feeling to the space, vertical lines emote free and expansive nature. Dynamic or angular lines, which are action oriented add drama and can be seen on structures like stairs. An interior designer must know how to utilize these lines to define the forms, another important interior design element.

Classic neutral palettes such as black and white work well in any masculine space. And, given the tendency toward darker tones, pops of color are an important way to break up color blocks. For this role, warm metallics like gold or brass are always a good way to go.

5. The new trend of bringing nature to every room of your home 

White is fabulous at unifying a space. If you have a home that is a mishmash of different building materials or architectural elements then its always a good idea to give it all a coat or two of white paint to create cohesion and to bring it all together.

3.  Wood as a finish has the ability to transform your mind and soul

Wood is one of the most versatile elements for your interiors

If you’re feeling really creative, look for furniture pieces that have some geometric design built in, like the stylish yellow credenza shown above.

A great way to achieve that patterned effect is with a rug. Beni Ourain rugs from Morocco, with their beige and black color palette fast becoming a classic, are a perfect choice for masculine spaces. The neutral colors and diamond geometric pattern are ideal for fitting into a neutral heavy space or brightening up a moodier one. And, depending on the size of the rug, the scale of the pattern can add visual interest to the entire room, alleviating the need for other patterned textiles.

Introduce a myriad of different textures to a white room. Think textured rugs, linen cushions or bed linen, velvet lounges, knobbly woollen knitted throws – these all work to add elements of tactile warmth to what can be an otherwise sterile environment. Plenty of indoor greenery is always a good idea to add a textural element to an all-white room and planters or plants stands can help add a little bonus splash of colour to your interior. The idea is to add textural layers into an all-white base, this really is the key to achieving a chic and cohesive all-white look in any interior.

6. Texture Texture mainly deals with surfaces and determines how a typical surface looks and feels. Texture adds depth and interest into a living space and defines the feel/appearance and consistency of a surface. Texture is broadly classified into two types – Visual Texture where the texture is only visible and Actual Texture where the texture is both seen and felt. Anything that has to do with textiles such as pillow cover, bed spreads or anything to do with covers like drapes, wall paint or wallpapers have a texture. While there must be a dominant texture to define a mood, a contrasting texture must also be included to avoid monotony.

Perhaps even more than pattern, masculine spaces are a mix of textures, with an emphasis on hard, rough, or weathered surfaces. Natural materials such as stone and unfinished wood are always the first choices for creating a space with a rough-hewn, masculine feel. Brick walls are another perfect fit, adding color as well as texture.

3. Forms Forms mean shapes in general, an outline of any three dimensional object in the space. Forms can be created by combining two or more shapes and can be accentuated with the help of other elements like texture, patterns and colors. A well-defined form establishes harmony and additional forms add balance to the space. There are two types of forms – Geometric (man-made) and Natural (organic). Also forms are categorized as open and closed; open forms are those that can be looked into and closed forms are those that are enclosed by a closed surface. A solid understanding of the above mentioned elements i.e. space and line is required to achieve a goof form.

Let pieces of art take centre stage among the white. One of the greatest assets of working with an all-white interior is the ability to showcase amazing pieces of art, sculpture or any other element that commands attention, without them having to compete with the colour on the walls, decor or furnishings. All eyes will be on your prized collection without you even having to try when you showcase them in an all white space, you will have your very own art gallery!

1. Space Space is one of the most important elements of interior design. Space acts as a foundation on which the entire interior design plan is built. Hence it is essential that the designer is well aware of the space available, its dimensions and its utilities. Space is divided into two types namely – Two Dimensional Space which covers the floor (includes length and width) and Three Dimensional Space which forms the living space (includes length, width and height). A space that is essentially filled with furniture/décor items is a Positive Space and an empty space is a Negative Space. An equilibrium has to be maintained between the positive and negative spaces and either overcrowding or skimping on the furniture/décor items is going to affect this equilibrium.

We are going to cover all the 7 elements of interior design in this article, followed by an article explaining all the 7 principles. Let’s begin!

With the possible exception of bright florals or butterflies (though either could find a place in the right masculine space), it’s hard to define a pattern as strictly masculine or feminine. But some do make a better argument for inclusion than others.

Just because the room you’re decorating is designed to suit a man’s tastes, that doesn’t mean that your accessories options are limited. Look for pieces that add to the texture of the room, such as stoneware, statues, or pottery. Books are another great choice, particularly older works with interesting or vintage hardcover bindings. Finally, textile pieces such as throw pillows remain an excellent option for adding color and pattern to the space.

Choose the best colour whites for your home. It is essential to explore all the hues in the white family when decorating in all white as white is not actually a colour but a tone and believe it or not there are hundreds of variations and shades of white out there. To achieve a strong aesthetic and sophisticated all-white interior it is best to use a variation of white tones through a combination of paint, furnishings, decor and accessories. It’s not a meter of choosing the perfect white for your home, it’s about choosing a few perfect whites!

Paint your floorboards in fabulous shabby chic white and expect them to stay forever pristine! This is a high maintenance flooring option and one not for the faint-hearted. Either do it and choose a good quality topcoat for added protection and embrace the scuffs and imperfections or don’t do it at all as it is sure to send you crazy!

The appeal of painted brick is gorgeous for showing off uniformity and pattern

For many homeowners wood is one of the only materials that can be finished to look like shiny marble or can be left raw and unstained to reveal its gorgeous imperfections of knots and grains. Bringing wood into your interiors is one of the easiest and warmest of natural materials and comes in a variety of finishes, species and applications. From flooring to ceiling beams wood also can be reclaimed and refinished from older buildings to keep its life sustainability ongoing for years in your home.

The ability to bring nature into your home has been an ambition that homeowners have strived for over the centuries. For generations humans love the natural and organic appeal of elements that make them feel calm, at peace and above all welcomed into a space. In recent years the growing awareness of the dwindling of the Earth’s resources have made it even more apparent that bringing nature into our homes is essential as it is a design aesthetic we can’t duplicate. If you have been trying to think of inspiring ways to bring the outdoors into your home, take a look at these 10 ideas for bringing nature & organically inspired elements into your interiors.

7. Pattern Patterns add interest and life to interior design and work along with colors. Patterns tell a story of their own and add the elements of continuity and smooth transition in a living space. Patterns could be of any shape and mostly comprise of attractive and repetitive designs. Paisley, a design pattern which takes the shape of a droplet-shaped vegetable is one of the most commonly used patterns on wall paints, pillow covers and other decorative surfaces.

One of the easiest, cheapest and most beautiful natural elements that many forget about is sunlight. Natural daylighting can make any room come alive, it makes colors pop in your furnishings and wall decor and it makes humans feel healthy and inspired. Whether you use windows, borrowed light from solar tubes extended from your roof into closets or dark bathrooms, natural light can have an effect like no other throughout your living interiors.

4. Light Light is one of the most obvious elements of interior design. Either natural or man-made, without light other elements namely color, texture and pattern have no significance at all. Light sets in the mood and ambience into a living space and highlights the every other element including space, line and forms. While smart placement of doors and windows should take care of the natural light, man-made or artificial lighting is broadly divided into three major types namely – Task Lighting, Accent Lighting and Mood Lighting. Task light as the name implies, includes light sources like table and bed lamps which have a defined purpose, dedicated for a specific task. Accent lights are meant for highlighting a particular piece or show item like artworks, structures, sculptures and so on. Mood or ambient lighting basically set the mood of the living space and illuminate the overall space.

For the more cynical members of the home decorating business, a “guy’s room” has always seemed like the one in which all the design stops. It’s the room with the old, ratty furniture, mismatched accessories, and nothing on the walls but a really big television.

Finally, look for ways to connect your art to the wider decor. Using your art pieces to pick up and echo the patterns and colors found in your rugs and textiles is a way to create a nuanced, layered look that will add depth to your man-centered room.

No matter what room you’re decorating or what style you plan to decorate in, it’s always a good idea to make choosing the color palette your first step. Of course, a masculine room isn’t one where you’re likely to find a lot of bright shades of yellow or pink (though you may find some). Guy’s colors tend to run a different gamut, ranging from moody shades of darker colors on one hand, with warm neutrals on the other side.

Art is the perfect finishing touch to any space, and masculine spaces are no exception. Art is one of the easiest ways to add spots of bright color to a moody or neutral space. Gallery walls combining multiple pieces will create eye-catching statement walls while offering opportunities to include other non-traditional wall art. Black and white photography is also a fantastic possibility for spaces with a quieter, more reflective feel.

Go to extremes when painting with warm and cool whites. Too much of either end of the spectrum is sure to provide unsatisfying results. Too warm and your interior will look very 90s soft yellow… too cool and it will look like a soft purple. It is always wise not to mix warm, creamy whites with cool icy tones either, as the latter will tend to make the former look dirty and the creamy tones will make the cool ones look clinical and sterile. Play the white colour spectrum game with respect, caution and sensibility and always ask for a sample before you commit to any major white painting plans.

Awaken all your senses with natural elements in your bathroom

Perhaps that perception is not entirely fair, but it’s true that for almost as long as it’s been around, interior design has had a definite focus on women. But it’s entirely possible to create a space that’s both masculine as well as stylish and contemporary, provided you know the right elements to include.

5. Color Colors don’t need any special introduction. Colors establish an aesthetic connection between objects and set the mood. Colors must be chosen based on the psychology and the mindset of the dweller. For example, red is an excellent choice for dining room as it encourages appetite and green for bedroom as it is the color of tranquility and health. Each color has three distinct characteristics namely Hue, Value and Intensity, and an interior designer must be well aware of these characteristics to perform various permutations and combinations. Colors are broadly classified into Primary and Secondary colors and also sub-categorized into Tertiary, Complementary, Analogous and Monochromatic colors.

4. Natural wood furniture reveals craftsmanship at its finest

Avoid going all white in high traffic areas if you have kids, pets or annoyingly messy significant others. If you are a glutton for punishment and do choose white for these areas then at least choose wisely and select white slipcovers for lounges and washable wall paint so that you can keep your white interior looking fresh as a daisy.

For floor coverings in these all-white high traffic areas its best to think colourful boucherouite/kilims or earthy neutral like jute or seagrass. You never want a white rug no matter how beautiful it is!!
