Eco-style in the interior: the main rules and details
Anonim

Eco-style is one of the main interior trends along with minimalism, pop art and Scandinavian style. Experts from the Moscow architectural bureau Pobeda Design, who are actively working on projects for private apartments, tell about him. If you also lack natural motives in your home, take note of their recommendations.

“In the original, eco-design means not only the use of environmentally friendly materials, but their recycling and reuse. Now eco-style is a much broader concept that includes not only decoration and furniture made from natural materials, but also filling the interior as a whole, including lighting, small decor items and other details. Let's talk about the techniques that will bring your home closer to eco-style."

Finishing

Eco-style finishing involves the use of natural materials. For the floor, it can be solid wood, stone, imitation of natural textures. Even the shape of the plank on the floor can be unusual, with curved edges. Alternatively, you can opt for wood look laminate, which will not show the seams between the planks too much.

  • As a decoration of one of the walls, you can use natural greenery, which is now fashionable, by providing a system of drainage, irrigation and lighting. The decoration of the wall or part of it with stabilized moss will also fit perfectly into the eco-style interior.
  • Vertical gardening is not the cheapest pleasure. Such a wall will cost you a hefty sum, and will also require careful maintenance, but it will certainly attract the eye and will not leave guests indifferent. In addition, plants perfectly clean the air in the room.
  • Plants placed around the room are an alternative to eco-style vertical gardening. The main thing is not to turn the room into a winter garden and to observe the style when choosing pots.

A stone or its imitation is perfect for wall decor. If you provide favorable lighting for such a wall, you can get an unusual effect.

You can also bring the interior of your apartment closer to eco-style if you just have a room with a light neutral finish and do not plan any major changes. This can be achieved, for example, with the right furniture.

Furniture

Eco-style furniture can be massive - made from a single piece of wood or more airy, wicker rattan. She can diversify minimalistic furniture in the room: racks made of rough wood will look very organic in this case. They will not require an overly active environment, and will also serve as a wonderful decor.

It should be noted that tables with a base of snags are in perfect harmony with sofas and armchairs of laconic forms and calm shades. An excellent alternative would be to buy boards from companies that demolish old houses. A pair of skilled hands in a duet with your imagination will create a wonderful and unique rack for an eco-interior.

It is easy to add green motives even to the bathroom. For example, you can install a wooden sink or a bamboo sink. During its use, you will see how not a trace will remain of the negative hustle and bustle of the day, and the mood for a positive wave, on the contrary, intensifies. There is another natural option - an onyx sink.

If you prefer more traditional sanitary ware, then the elements of eco-style in your bathroom can be cabinets with wooden moisture-resistant facades or a wicker basket for laundry, as well as all kinds of accessories made from natural materials: a wooden soap dish, natural bamboo towels, small baskets.

Eco-style does not imply traditional volumetric chandeliers that attract undue attention. The best option in this case would be built-in lighting, since eco-style light is designed to favorably emphasize the elements of decoration and furniture. If you dream of an unusual chandelier, then we advise you to give preference to stylized lamps that will fit into the overall concept as organically as possible in form and material.

An important detail of any interior is textiles. Eco-style fabrics, like everything else, should be natural. For curtains it is linen, for upholstery - matting.

Decor

Eco-style implies decor made from natural materials: all kinds of curly driftwood, potted plants, wicker baskets. An interesting technique will be to decorate the space with large pebbles. The main thing is not to overdo it and not overload the interior.

Summary:

  • When creating an eco-style in an apartment, one must remember that such an interior is not a room completely upholstered with wooden slats. In no case does he tolerate a huge number of attributes, otherwise you risk turning the house into a Russian folk hut with an abundance of benches, wooden shelves and tubs of flowers.
  • It is very rare to observe a "clean" style in the interior, so as soon as you add at least one eco-detail to a calm and laconic room, it will immediately transform. Another option is to create an eco-style in the apartment with decoration and add calm furniture to it.
  • And the most important thing: leave the interior spacious, so that you experience only pleasure and comfort from being in it.
