Features of modern interior


The modern style in the interior is very diverse and practical. Of course, it is based on both human requirements and constant development in the field of furniture design, engineering, finishing materials, etc. However, an ordinary person with no special education has a very vague idea of ​​interior styles and their differences. In this article, we want to give you an idea of ​​what the modernist style is, its main features and characteristics.

The word "modern" is most often misplaced in design and architecture. In the translation of the "modern" style is not so modern, in fact, it is based on the designer movement, which arose at the turn of the 20th century.

The modern movement continued to grow throughout the first half of the century, and later, the style itself was already consolidated, and its derivative - postmodern.

In the native German and Scandinavian architecture and design, the modern style is simple and unparalleled. In fact, it is connected with the buildings of the 1920s-1950s. On the other hand, the modernist is not a reflection of a certain era. It changes over time and adds modern elements. For example, in a few decades, this will be a new style, which will also be called modern, because it's what's on the trend today.

One of the key postulates of the modern movement is the idea that "form follows the function." In other words, the design of all furniture and decorative objects should reflect their intended purpose, and if the interior has parts, objects or decor, which does not have a practical purpose, then they should be removed.

Such a modernist philosophy makes it an ideal choice for those who love simple, unencumbered spaces with clean lines and the lack of pretentious ornaments.

There are several main features and distinctive features of modernism

Convenient furniture arrangement in modern interior

Today, most townspeople live in apartments, and our apartments usually do not have spacious rooms, high ceilings and large windows. The Art Nouveau style in the interior is focused on the convenient design of small apartments. The main feature of the modernist is to arrange the furniture as comfortably as possible. Any tricks to organize the zoning will come up here so that a single space that is so fashionable today would come up. In other words, there are many possibilities for re-planning any apartment, and in the Art Nouveau style it is welcomed.

Color of modern style

In the modern interior, as a rule, walls act as a background, so it is best to choose neutral shades: pale olive, light gray and ivory, and white walls have long been a cult in interior design. Dark colors can also be used in modern interior design. For example, the trendy shade of indigo is ideal for walls. But, here it is important to remember that the dark interior needs to be able to properly decorate.

Color accents in the modern interior also have the right to life. Bright and expressive colors can "revive" the room. One of the most popular techniques is the accent wall. However, this is not the only way to introduce saturated colors into the design of the room. This can be done using textiles or other decor.

Particular attention deserves the prints. Geometric and graphic drawings, tropical motifs not only decorate the space, but also create a special mood.

Eco-friendly interior

In modern times, this topic is very important and relevant. If you can not use exclusively natural materials in the design of your home, then at least give preference to those that can be called environmentally friendly. It is also desirable to use textures and shades similar to natural materials.


Illumination in the interior is almost an individual kind of art. Correct placement of lighting not only makes it possible to make the room's decor more pleasing to the eyes, but even emphasize the smallest details. Smart introduction of lighting and additional sources of artificial light allows you to look at the same interior in a completely new way. One can not but mention the design of chandeliers, floor lamps, sconces and table lamps - this is far from the secondary elements, but a full-fledged, if not leading, decor.

Probably, the battles on the topic of how interior design in modernist style should look, so will continue. Because the essence of the style is to reflect a particular era and its main tendencies, which are constantly changing.

Nevertheless, many people, even unknowingly, include elements of modern style in their homes and offices because of their simplicity, functional nature. Since many people strive for simplicity in life, and such a design seems to simplify everything.
