How to create great spaces : Get the look

June 2016 : 

Bohemian Coastal, Country Classic and Eclectic.

Whether in the planning stages of building or looking to renovate, structural and design options, including how they will impact on the overall functionality and feel of the space are important considerations. Transitioning a room to create a great space can significantly increase the value of a home, while creating better living environments for homeowners to enjoy. Elements, including the doors, can offer design relief from the limitations of four plain walls and a flat ceiling to create a room that is more interesting and has a personality of its own.

Whether the preferred style is eclectic, bohemian coastal or country chic, there needs to be a streamlined flow from the door, to the floor, to the décor. Whilst all elements are important, the door can in fact, tie an entire look together.

“A simple design can act as a blank canvas that doesn’t overpower or dictate a specific look, but instead works in harmony with a wide range of designs,” says Athina Solomou, National Marketing Manager, Corinthian Doors.

“The door can be the first thing someone sees when they walk into a room, so it is an opportunity to set the scene for what’s to come,’ states Ms Solomou. “Whether you want to create a rustic feel or perhaps focus on modern, clean lines, start with the door and continue on with a basic colour palette.”

The home is a reflection of a family’s lifestyle and personality, which is why it’s important to consider every element and choose an interior style that complements personal style. Inspirations for style can come from experiences such as a great holiday, a stay in a hotel or simply be a much-loved look that can be re-created. What’s important is choosing a style that is ‘you’ and creating a home that reflects this.

Leading door experts, Corinthian Doors help define three distinct looks and offer simple tips on how to achieve each of these styles in the home.

BOHEMIAN COASTAL

BOHEMIAN COASTAL

When creating a bohemian, seaside look, opt for a subdued colour palette that is complemented with classic must-haves. Create a space that is light and inviting, decorated with soothing hues of softer colours that are brought to life with natural features such as luscious green plants, organic linens and natural textures. Keep the larger areas of the room neutral by maintaining a consistent colour across the entire wall and door. A bohemian, coastal interior is heavily décor-based, so include a door design that is classic yet sleek. The door should blend in with the look, not overpower it. Incorporate turquoise accents, coloured glass bottles and distressed furniture to create the earthy, laid-back vibe necessary for this style.

CLASSIC COUNTRY

CLASSIC COUNTRY

Creating a classic country look is about achieving a balance of style, elegance and comfort in which a simple colour palette works best.

For this style, two-toned walls are a great way to add dimension and interest without overpowering the room. Wall colours including soft greys, creams and blues are a good choice. Choose a door that is elegant and sophisticated, painted in one of the highlight colours in the room.

When deciding on furniture and accessories, choose pieces made of natural materials such as wooden tables, woollen floor rugs and woven cane baskets, which add both texture and interest. The perfect finishing touches for a classic country feel are a few signature antique pieces that offer a story of their own.

ECLECTIC

ECLECTIC

As with any great space, start with the backdrop. The eclectic style loves colour, however, the walls and door shouldn’t overpower the varied textures and patterns within the décor. Start with a door that will add to the room’s texture but not distract from the overall look.

The main colour of the walls should add to the space but not be the main focus. Pastels are really on trend at the moment, so think buttery yellow, sky blue or a soft pink colour. Once the base has been decided, focus next on pulling the look together with accessories and furnishings to complement the style. Incorporate colour contrasts, playing light against dark, textured rugs, modern artwork, harsh lines and retro furniture. Each object must have a purpose to the space but at the same time be adventurous and fun.

Moda Collection by Corinthian Doors offers over 24 different styles that are perfect for an array of interior styles and architectural designs, and can create a wonderful sense of drama in a space that truly reflects a personality in its own unique way.
