Black Interior Design: Modern Classic Style

15th December 2021

Modern classic interior design is very popular because it is a combination of the best qualities of both traditional and contemporary themes. To simply put it, modern classic style is the presence of clean lines, natural materials, and emphasis on functionality.

The main colour palettes for modern classic style are white, beige and black, but sometimes it incorporates earthly tones as accents such as timber. You can combine the colour of furniture, decors, and walls as long as you keep it simple as you can.

Form follows Function

Modern classic designs are in favour of clean, straight lines, uncluttered spaces, open-concept floor space, and an abundance of natural light. A mix of furniture, like a kitchen countertop, provides a visual distinction from the dining or living room without overwhelming the space is another characteristic of this interior design.

Natural meets Manmade

As previously mentioned, a mix and match approach to strike a balance between pure function and aesthetics, with furniture to be practical but still appealing. A touch of natural wood combined with some sleek black chairs will complete your modern classic theme.

Black is the name of the game

Black is the only colour that is mysterious, yet elegant and sophisticated. It has an amazing ability to arouse a wide variety of feelings and emotions. Black can be authoritative and powerful when used with flair. Black is surely a staple when it comes to fashion and interior design because of its aura of luxury that is both visual and tactile.
