Urban Style

Have you thought about how big the influence of the urban style trend is in our everyday lives? At commercial venues like restaurants, shopping arcades, coffee shops, and many other places. Not forgetting how it also affects us when planning the interior design of a home.

Urban style interior design can exist anywhere, not just in cities. Weathered brick walls and exposed ceilings certainly is urban style design, but if your space doesn’t come equipped with those, you can also get the look with original artwork. Urban style design often has a cosmopolitan vibe, and artwork is a way to achieve that look.  Don’t start worrying about the expense, street artist sales, where students put their work up for purchase, are the perfect places to get one-of-a-kind pieces at great prices.

Urban industrial design is best embodied by the idea of the converted industrial loft. Brick walls, rugged wood or concrete floors, and enormous steel windows creating a sense of laid-back cool, while open floor plans and lots of natural light give these spaces an open, airy feeling.

The modern urban style is a softer and more comfortable look than the harder ‘industrial’ styles which always used to be associated with the word ‘urban’.  Modern urban style is interior design for living in such as a home that welcomes us in after a long day, nurtures us and protect us from the ‘big bad city’.

The lighting of urban style design is also very important to create a relaxing ambiance.  Do not have the lighting too bright in some areas where you want to feel more chilled out. For example, in a bedroom, a study, a dining room, a family room, and others.  A grey, black and white colour scheme balanced with sleek handle-less cabinets, utilitarian style freestanding units, original art work and slick gadgetry all combine to give you the Urban Style look.
