Decorating With Style – The Beauty of ‘Imperfection’
‘Imperfect’ is the new hot. If the designers of yesteryears mastered their craft to produce what is ‘perfect’, the designers of modern times sought what is beautifully ‘imperfect’. It sounds crazy. But this new trend in décor is gaining popularity by the minute.
More and more homes are now featuring these ‘imperfect’ home decors. Depending on the design, these home decors can be used both in classic style homes and contemporary style homes.
But what gives these items the ‘imperfect’ look? What makes them unique? What makes them exquisite? Let us take a look at some of the design features present in these items.
The Fade Effect
Recall what the paints and dyes of yesteryear’s home decors looked like. Are they not perfectly polished? Are they not perfectly even? Do you still remember those wooden furniture sets, photo frames, and vases that feature a beautifully polished and a perfectly even paint cover?
Well, some of today’s home decors feature something quite different – a faded look. And the fades are not even a fake or a visual effect. They are for real. Some parts even leave the wood beneath (in case of wooden furniture and wooden frames) bare and visible.
The fades create a beautiful ‘antiquated’ and ‘aged’ look – truly fascinating. It is now the new favorite.
The Beauty of Cracks
Another design feature used by enthusiasts of the ‘imperfect look’ is cracks. By adding a pattern of cracks or several cracks lines on an item, they are effectively giving it an ‘antiquated’ and ‘aged’ look.
Some cracks are not for real and are only drawn or painted on. But the most interesting ones are the real cracks. However, it is almost impossible to engrave exactly the same crack patterns on similar items. As a result, no two items look exactly the same. This makes each individual item looking unique and special.
The Scribbled Look
Canvas paintings, printed wall arts, and other wall decors of yesteryears also sought ‘perfection’. But today, wall decors are also starting to feature an ‘antiquated’ look through the use of ‘imperfections’.
Wall arts for example feature scribbled drawings. The style used is whimsical, comical, and rough. The unrefined feature of the drawings creates an exquisite look that is fresh and exciting.
The use of colors is also often ‘scribbled’ in nature. Dyes and paints exceed line borders and are somewhat ‘messy’. Even the framing lines feature a ‘messy’ look.
