Think in Color Families, At first glance the home's entryway looks like a riot of color, but after talking to Mele you realize he was actually working with a tight palette. “I wanted a lot of white, first of all, and then a mix of blue and orange,” he reveals. The secret? Working with various hues within each of these two complementary color families. His blues included “cobalt, turquoise, delft, navy. Within the orange family, corals, tangerines, grapefruits. Really rich hues, not muted.” Blue & White Always Works, For Mele, using a combo of blue and white is like “wearing a white shirt with blue jeans, or a navy-blue blazer and a white shirt. It never goes out of style.” The classic color combination in interiors can be similarly dressed up or down. In the living room, Mele used a decidedly denimlike shade of blue grasscloth on the walls to add color and texture, which helps the silhouettes of the white accessories and the wingback chairs really pop. The overall effect is polished yet casual. “I think blue and white is the equivalent of black and white; it's just not as fierce,” says the designer. “It's more welcoming to most people.
A lot has been talked about contemporary. A lot of designers have worked around contemporary and created excellent designs but the sudden change in designs reflected in latest Interior Designs exhibitions across the world makes us wonder what next? After studying exhibits in Asian countries and the European continent, there is definitely a common thread; Contemporary blending with classical to form neoclassical as the new design ventures. With the interior clearly demarcated into either ethnic or contemporary, neoclassical interior decor offers a blend. Taking the graceful curves of Rococo and blending it with straight lines of Georgian and creating your own style makes the neoclassical style unique in itself. The line and form take precedence over color in neoclassical. It is the blending of shapes which is the most important element.
