The modern style: the keywords of this style
The modern décor has attracted a lot of attention since it was used by modernist architects, with its innovation being based especially on the functionality of the environment, allied with an innovative design of the time.
When we think of this style, we often come to mind, for example, diverse uses of traditional materials such as concrete and wood, materials considered heavy and difficult to work on large constructions, with new cuts that allowed to create rounded patterns. But who certainly shines in this kind of environment is the straight line, used in many directions to ensure a simplified design for furnishings and decoration accessories.
Simplification is one of the words that best define this style that seeks to find comfort in an environment with easily obtained shapes. And when we speak in modern style, we can choose some aspects that best define this style, especially speaking in types of furniture and decoration, layout and quantity of elements in space.
In the idea of keeping the decoration simple, the modern style usually does not work so much the ornamentation, or of its furniture, that unlike the classic baroque and rococo styles, it dispenses subjects its floral decorations or based on the nature carved in the doors, and in the use of purely decorative elements.
With a few exceptions, such as frames and mirrors, the decorative elements almost always come out of this style. But that does not mean that the environment is without personality or very cold: the elements can be inserted but with caution and balance.
In this way, the organization of the environment is also prioritized, keeping everything in its place and, in general, enclosed in cabinets and drawers, without exposure on shelves, very common nowadays.
Hard materials vs. comfortable materials
Although it is in modern times that the concrete elements are able to acquire more organic and curved forms (it is worth remembering the architecture of Oscar Niemeyer to remember this), what prevails in the modern decoration are the straight lines, be they horizontal, vertical or diagonal.
The use of these lines, while they may give the appearance of a harsh and uncomfortable environment, are balanced with other types of materials that give the opposite impression, creating a balance in the environment.
Therefore, materials such as wood, leather and suede make a good contrast with iron and glass. In addition, the more yellowish lighting can also end up giving a feeling of warmth and comfort to the environment.
Why choose modern style in your decor
The modern style is a type of decoration dating from the twentieth century but that talks very well with the current contemporary style, especially the trends minmalistas and clean.
And this is not without explanation: these new styles of decorating that are catching the attention of everyone today were greatly influenced by the modern style that innovated in decorating, removing excessive and flashy ornaments that diverted people's attention to how furniture and other items of design performed their function.
The modern style also talks to who wants to go back a little in time and give some retro touches in the decoration, it can be a style that is on a threshold between current and former, perfect for those who do not want to return so much.
