Add curves to your personal space and watch your room transform magically, says Sejal Parikh, interior designer, Wooden Street.
Sharp shapes have a classy appeal, extensively making their mark on the décor industry. On the other hand, curved lines are bubbling their way back to being trendy, and their soothing magic is what we all need. Studies have proven that our brain finds soft curves more pleasurable to watch over straight, symmetric lines. It takes less cognitive effort to process curved surfaces visually, compared to sharp ones.
The pandemic and resultant lockdown brought curves back. Due to the somberness of that period, today, one needs a cozy ambience to feel nested and content – which curves bring in abundantly! Curves activate a gentle ease in an area, helping us become stress-free. Curves have an emotional impact on us, influencing our mood for the better. Here’s how to incorporate curves into your interiors to feel relaxed and sorted…
Curved Platforms With Textured Décor
If you fear experimenting with your interiors, then infusing curves as a design element would suit you best. Go for curved platforms like tables and chairs paired with plain textured décor to make the curves stand out. This will bring a unique structural appeal to your space, while keeping it subtle. Curves also make the seating more comfortable; hence, tables and chairs with curves are a big yes!
Pick The Right Fabric
Like shapes, different fabrics also lend different vibes. Textured fabrics like velvet doubles the ease and softness of curves. Buying curvy furniture with velvet upholstery will double the calming effect of the curved lines. A wrong fabric choice can visually affect the softness of curved lines. Remember that plush fabrics suit curves best.
Soft Edge Statement Décor
Using the highlight spots in your home to showcase curved statement décor is a smart way to bring curves into focus. A mirror or circular piece of wall art are fascinating picks that display curve appeal. Embracing such a design component would up the calmness quotient of the room amazingly. Neat curves keep the view crisp and engaging. Overdoing them will create too many focal points, resulting in imbalanced interiors.
Plants and curvy planters are a combination made in heaven! While plants add freshness and natural appeal to a room, curvy planters boost the aesthetic appeal and relaxation proportion of a space. Match soft, rounded planters with the greenery to double the positivity of your room’s ambience. The very sight of this combo will spark hope and happiness in you and those around you!
