BREAKS IN STYLE FOR MORE INDIVIDUALITY
With the "no dress code" from the comparability
Breaks in style or "mix and match" result from the combination of different designs that do not seem to go together due to their contradiction. In fashion, they are referred to as “no dress codes”. Anyone who uses breaks in style will get an exciting, individual and unmistakable ensemble that is second to none. For designers and furnishing professionals, breaks in style are a great opportunity to demonstrate their planning skills.
A break in style can be quite provocative. It is an ideal instrument for giving your home uniqueness, liveliness and dynamism. After all, a home should express the personality of its occupants - it is not necessarily harmonious, simple or linear and does not necessarily have to be in harmony with the architecture.
The skilful play with contrasts and breaks in style is what characterizes an individual furnishing style. A bit of country house style is added to the purism, round meets square, rough meets smooth. Architectural colors contrast with bright tones, making them a statement. Modern furnishing elements correspond with pieces of furniture from earlier eras.
As is so often the case in life, it is the right balance that counts with such combinations. Too few contrasts and a room can appear monotonous or sterile. Too many contrasts and the ambience appears restless or somehow untidy. As an important element for skilful breaks in style, the combination of different materials such as wood, stainless steel, metal, glass, ceramics or stone can definitely give rooms structure. Whether positioned accentuated or in zones, they give each room its own identity. Furniture in different designs is a good way to divide a room in just a few simple steps. Shelves and consoles can become room dividers through certain placements or define certain functional zones. Accentuated, they set a visual highlight.
Of course, contrasts and breaks in style can also be used through floors, wall colors, tiles, textiles or other accessories such as lamps and contribute to a completely unique furnishing style. Individuality is a trump card here, in the interest of the viewer.
