HOW TO MIX & MATCH LIKE A PRO [BOSS]



😉 #SHAPES Edition



How do you mix #shapes in a design so effortlessly is our focus this week? The moodboard you see above is one that I shared for MOODBOARD MONDAY on my INSTAGRAM page which has organic vibes. The mood is SUMMER just adds to the overall feel of the board and it feels quite soothing to the soul.




 

SHAPES SHAPES SHAPES. HOW DO YOU MIX SHAPES IN A DESIGN...SEAMLESSLY.

Infusing a very feminine shape such as a curve then adding sharp angles, generally perceived to be a masculine aspect, you get an organic mix. Now, this is one way to merge masculine and feminine designs effortlessly. (As a designer, I prefer to go against the grain) and tend to go with what actually feels good to the soul. Being able to mix and match gives you an easy way to keep your design interesting and fresh for a longer period of time...meaning, fewer refreshes in the long run, which in turn saves money?


With your design being visually interesting, you not only get inspired but save money in the long run by always having something new to look at.




With your design being visually interesting, you not only get inspired but save money in the long run by always having something new to look at.

Other essential components to achieve a key to the seamless design is the use of MATERIALS and TEXTURES. Paying attention to these elements will add comfort as well as visual interest to space. It’s not just about the materials that are important but how they work together when mixed with other key design elements. For example, the inspiration for this whole design was the Jonathan Alder Lucite Hand sculpture. I was immediately inspired to go with feminine design aesthetics which brought in the curves of the lighting, the custom vanity sink console, and white porcelain vases


Next, the contrast had to be introduced. The softness of the acrylic and organic wood console needs roughness. Not literally though. This is where the sharp angles come in; from the geometric shapes in the mirrors and hexagon flooring. For the materials, bringing in concrete and natural wood grains adds a nice organic texture to the design. CONCRETE, WOOD & porcelain together...oh my.


There is just something about concrete and wood that is very special to me.
