Fusion has replaced strict interior styles that dictate strict rules for organizing rooms. It has become a worthy substitute for a modest, almost ascetic minimalism and a functional to the impossibility of constructivism. Fusion style in the interior is their complete opposite. It allows you to go beyond the generally accepted framework, allows you to express yourself creatively, to experiment with textures, materials, decor. The peculiarity of the style is a combination of the incompatible, the courage of ideas and the novelty of their embodiment. At the same time interior design in fusion style looks stylish and tasteful.
The appearance of the fusion dates back to the 1970s – 1990s. It manifested itself not only in the interior, but also in other spheres:
The style rapidly penetrated into various areas of activity oveka, gaining more and more fans. Everything traditional was served under a different sauce, presented from a new point of view, uniting continents and nationalities. If fusion music originated in the 70s, then the style got into the interior at the end of the twentieth century. Materials, decor from exotic countries have penetrated into traditional interiors, giving them the spirit of freedom, unfettered openness to everything new.
The first fusion style in the interior was mastered by American designers. They created bold interiors, combining classics with ethnic motifs or baroque with hi-tech. At the same time they filled the space with decor with Latin American, Chinese or African motifs. So, a soft armchair with a patterned fabric upholstery began to coexist with an unusual table with a mirror table top and a rug in the form of a leopard skin, a zebra, or simply with a geometric pattern.
In the 90s of the twentieth century, the notion of "fusion style in the interior" began to sound. What it is? Translated from English, fusion means fusion, fusion, synthesis. This definition has been used for interiors that combine incompatible. That is, in the interiors of houses, cafes, hotels, designers increasingly mixed signs of different styles, complementing them with decor and furniture of different nationalities.
For example, the classic interior of a bedroom with a comfortable bed, white walls and ceiling, classic curtains were complemented with color spots characteristic of pop art, a futuristic chandelier and an Egyptian bust. Objects of furniture that are completely incompatible at first glance acquired a new meaning in a good neighborhood with each other. They became an integral part of a single space.
Even today designers are turning to fusion style with an enviable consistency. After all, the fusion style in the interior of the apartment helps to create a unique bohemian space, which is characterized by both simplicity and complex pile of textures, colors and materials. Fusion easily combines these incompatible concepts. The combination of colors and patterns sets the tone for the whole interior. Although at first glance there is no logic and at least some regularity in the fusion colors, this is not so. The color palette is carefully selected, creating the impression of complete chaos.
Most often, the following colors are used as a background for interior design:
These colors can used alone or in three colors at the same time. With their help make out the ceiling, walls and floor.
As color accents are used as pure solid colors , and patterned motifs or paintings. Bright color spots against a gray or brown wall look life-affirming and fresh.
The most commonly used are:
Light green .
Fusion-style interior design is notable for an abundance of various patterns. They quietly get along next to each other, creating a unique creative space. To emphasize the individuality of the interior, its character and freedom use such patterns and drawings:
By creating a fusion style in the interior of the apartment, you can safely use different materials for finishing and the decor of the rooms.
For example, such:
Large ceramic tiles
It is important that textures complement each other visually and tactilely. For example, if a wall looks volumetric, then by touch it should be rough and voluminous. If the wall looks like river pebbles, then it should be tactile and smooth, consisting of small semicircular stones. If the surface depicts greenery, fresh spring grass, then it should resemble it to the touch (to achieve this effect, you can use relief plaster).
The rather colorful and unusual aesthetics of fusion are emphasized by the combination of smooth, glossy surfaces with textured fabrics (canvas, linen, homespun carpet, velvet), animal skins (or artificial carpets for animal skins). For example, the flooring of natural or laminated board with a clearly defined wood texture can be supplemented with a cow skin. And the bed can be turned into an art object with the help of game patterns on fabric, voluminous pillows and bedspreads.
Natural materials are used to finish surfaces:
Along with these materials are actively using modern technologies such as self-leveling floor with 3-D effect, bulk plaster with a picture, gilding, gouging, draped panels. The proximity of these materials gives an unusual effect.
Fusion style implies bold use of absolutely any materials and colors for ceiling decoration. However, very often designers choose an ordinary white ceiling. The smooth plastered surface is painted with water-based paint. A simple white ceiling is a good background for an unusual modern chandelier.
Along with a simple design solution, intricate ideas are also used. For example, the ceiling is combined with the roof, laying it out with glass panels. They not only protect the room from precipitation, let the maximum amount of light through, but also give a striking decorative effect.
A few more ideas for a fusion ceiling:
Most often, when choosing a floor covering, the practical side of the question is taken into account. For the living room and bedroom pick wooden, laminated, parquet floors. In the bathroom and kitchen floors are tiled or linoleum. The terrace can be lined with natural stone. In this case, the floor can be completely monotonous. Then it is supplemented with a bright walkway, carpet or skin. Or it can be artistically decorated (self-leveling floor with a pattern, artistic parquet or mosaic). In this case, it does not close anything, allowing guests to admire the interior miracle.
For the design of the walls, several different techniques and materials are chosen at once. It is good if you can harmoniously combine a smooth painted surface with brickwork, wood panels with mosaic inserts, bamboo wallpaper with white smooth plaster. Walls are a space for creativity and self-expression. They are complemented with fabric draperies, paintings by famous artists, objects of mass art (posters, posters or comics), mirrors, photographs within. It is important not to forget about the red thread of the national color, which should pass through the interior, enriching it.
When designing a fusion-style interior design, the designer highlights lighting theme. With it, an ordinary room can be turned into a film studio or a disco hall. Light is used not for general lighting of the situation, but for highlighting specific elements, for creating a light show within the framework of a usual residential apartment. Of course, you can choose a central chandelier to light a large living room. Most often they prefer modern models with an interesting design.But at the same time they think up a spotlight of individual elements of the decor.
Tip: Place some guided lights directly in the floor area. A directional light coming from below will create a spotlight effect.
The following devices are used as lighting devices:
The fact that it is not necessary to select all the lighting devices from the same collection, paying attention to their shape and material, is important. Fusion allows for a variety of shapes, colors and textures.
Textile design is also subject to the use of the main rule - no rules. That is, when decorating a bedroom or living room, you can safely combine translucent and heavy textured fabrics, have several types of different pillows nearby. Fusion recognizes the layering, layering of different patterns, colorful fabrics, draperies. It is not necessary to adhere to one patterned line when decorating a room. Fusion admits a neighborhood of a geometric and vegetative theme in combination with national symbolism.
For a living room in fusion style, there is no need for a furniture set or set. To create an environment suitable items from different collections and eras. Next to the classic sofa, a glass table in the Art Nouveau style will perfectly fit, and you can put two completely different chairs or an unusual sofa near the fireplace.
You can use this idea for the kitchen - place 4 - 6 completely different chairs at the dinner table. Despite the fact that pieces of furniture can differ in color, texture and style, they still have to have one common detail. For example, chrome legs or leather inserts, or a patterned print.
Tip: Do not clutter up space with unnecessary furniture. Fusion promotes freedom, so the room should be as much free space as possible.
When choosing decorative decorations for an interior of a fusion-style apartment, it is important to express your own self through the prism of a variety of objects. They should reflect the taste of the owner of the dwelling, his passions, preferences and favorite objects. Walls can decorate copies of your favorite paintings, pictures of actors or your own pictures. Different mirrors do not hang alone, and have groups. Although the neighborhood of a large mirror in a volume frame with a floor vase, a floor lamp and a bust in ethnic style is permissible.
The alleged permissiveness of style hides a small risk of transforming a creative, unpretentious atmosphere with a touch of bohemian into tasteless chaos. This can be avoided by relying on your own sense of measure and taste, as well as with the help of several rules:
Rule - # 1.
It is important to remember that fusion requires free well-lit space. Too much furniture, decor, textiles will overload the situation and violate the charm of mixing styles.
Rule - # 2.
Shallow ideas are well suited to be embodied in fusion space. A bit of shocking does not hurt for such an interior.
Rule - # 3.
When mixing the epochs, materials and styles, do not forget about the sense of proportion and the line between high art and banal ignorance.
