Many times we get questions about our way of interior design. About what we like, where we get our inspiration from and how we make sure the designs we choose will fit together. Well, in this post you’ll get the answers…We collected 7 different materials to create a style, some of our favoroutes! This is your unique interior design style guide, go ahead.
What would we do without this wonderful natural stone? Propably you already know we like to work with a lot of different materials, and if we had to choose from all the materials…Marble is our first love. You can do so many unique things with this stone, and lately there are several exclusive marble printed wallpapers to create interesting rooms of interior design. Find more inspiration in our earlier marble moodboard.
The soft touch and great warm feeling which brass generates makes it a unique material to incorporate into unique furniture and finishes. Brass can be used in ultra modern homes, but also in the most sophisticated homes across the world.
To create a refined interior design look, we choose refined fabrics. Silk is one of those ingredients you need when you want to give the room elegance and romance. We use a lot of soft fabrics that create a warm ambiance, these silks are unmissable when you style a bedroom.
Japan, China, Thailand, these countries have a totally different philosophy on life, and that’s what makes it interesting for us to look at their designs. In our post about Japanese interior design, you can see how we created an Amsterdam apartment in a unique Japanese inspired home interior. Definitely one of our favorite cultures. A lot of red and gold color use, beautiful hand-painted patterns of Japanese blossom flowers, and other rarely used techniques. This is what we call ‘chinoiserie’; a passion for Chinese motifs, especially from the 18th century.
Charming with class
Remember the Italian Lake house from one of our projects? This is exactly what we mean with ‘charming with class’ in a unique classic way.
Rustic boho chic
Decorating a summer hide-away in a relaxing atmosphere is one of the most easy and laid-back styles. Use wood and special crafts, together with ikat rustic fabrics and there you have the rustic style!
Canal City Loft
It might be obvious that we have a passion for interior design ;), so we like to use a lot of designs that come from anywhere in the world. We travel and visit a lot of inspiring hotels, restaurants, museums and exhibitions that feeds us for creating uniqueness and unusual looks. We try to combine different pieces of art, design, furniture and decor. We’re not focusing on a specific style, but more on materials, patterns, finishes and feelings. One last tip, keep your eyes focussed on; custom-made, unusual materials, high quality and one-of-a-kind products. These are for a life-time, so they are always worth it!
