I like the art in the first picture. Very architectural digest looking!

tbh, I don't care much for the cold, office-like look of mid century modern decor. Is this style danish mid cen? I like mid century modern when still upholstered and not too much wood.

Don't care much for the graphic type in the third pic.

The style in the article is not really mid-century but it is an eclectic mix of styles very popular these days (2018) and it started back in 2009 with a resurgence of art deco elements from the 1920s.  Most trendy interiors now look like this.  Mid-century, despite being very popular with millennials, is fading at the top end of interior design in USA and Europe since it looks very contrite and ikea.  Mid century is still very popular in Asia because it has always been associated with the United States when America pretty much ruled S. Korea and Japan.  As with most things related to "global culture", Asia is always 10-30 years behind.

snap, can't see the picture of the room anymore but I can see the curvy sofa an art deco influence. But the Danish chairs stand out and that's what give it a overall mid century vibe.

I don't care for art deco so much either even though there are something I do like from that era. everything seem too coarse, garish, and graphicky to me too.

There are many variations of Art Deco, and each country emphasizes a unique interpretation in design and materials.  I have always loved French Art Deco the most and consider it the peak of white peoples´ artistic achievement in interior design since this was also the period when Europeans and their descendants reached the zenith in wealth and power before the revolutionary sparks of decolonization took over around the world.  Art Deco, and the Art Noveau which preceded it, drew inspirations from many cultures.  The root of Danish midcentury modernism came out of the Bauhaus in Germany which was active at the height of American and French Art Deco.  What we see now in 2018 is the same eclecticism of interiors as during the Art Deco period so it is hard to define what it is as we live through these design trends.  When 3D technology is perfected, design for furniture and home objects will not be so focused on form as it is on craft, and this shift in design and production method will likely define this contemporary style. Perhaps 3D-ism will be the name.  As Asia is becoming a dominant force in world trade, I predict the forefront of design will unlikely to remain in Europe and America.  Already, the center for reproduction of quality Art Deco period furniture has been Cebu in the Philippines for the past 10 years or so.

I like contemporary style too but with a little romance. ie vibrant colors, soft upholstery, and flowers. Definitely feminine.

for an average household where you don't have the time or money, there are many basic things you can buy even from big box stores like living space that can be attractive if you just know how to combine colors and styles.

If I have to pick a style that is distinct enough from the West and emphasizes excesses then I will have to go with Mughal India.  The Mughals are alternative spelling of "Mongols" for the Islamic dynasties descended from early Mongol rulers who converted to Islam and eventually conquered all of India.  So really the Mongols did not just ruled China and the Middle East but pretty much all of India as well.  This style of interior design combined aesthetic heritage from North Africa, China, Italy and native Turkic cultures to produce something so luxurious it boggles the mind.  The early Mongols who ruled China would never have dreamed that their mixed raced descendants could be so culturally advanced lol.  Even the emperor´s defecating pot is so beautiful in person that I would not mind wash my face from it.  The Taj Mahal was built by them.  Their wardrobes, their palaces, their gardens, their jewelry, everything about these people seem to me paragons of earthly beauty.

I appreciate the overly decorative style that is typical of Indian style and have fantasies about living in these palaces since I started reading the Arabian nights as a little kid. BUT, in reality, I prefer calm, comfortable, and understated with accent arts and flowers.

I don't like too much wood and lots of angular loosk. that's why Danish modern and zen styles don't appeal to me.

please do not call Mughal style as "Indian style".  Indians, remember, were conquered by the Mughals.  They HAD to live under Islamic rulers which they despised.  The traditional Hindu aesthetic is much more naturalistic, monotone and mooted.  Khmer courtly buildings and interiors were more like what you see favored by Hindu princes before the conquest in 1526.  If you see colors, it´s likely all gold.  Everything I have seen made for the Mughals had a balance to the colors.  The clothes you see worn by Indian women today that imitate the Mughals simply do not exhibit this balance.  Tons of colors but no harmony.  It is imitation not true mastery of the colors.







typical indian sari you see on the streets and even among wealthy indians...



supposedly the richest most lavish wedding by billionaires in India





there is no harmony in the colors at all.  Everything is so garish.

Trudeau´s robe doesn´t look too bad but it is likely made from all polyester fabric dyed synthetically instead of natural silk dyed with holy cow urine for a subdued golden hue.

a proper sari is a major expense. but it is considered exotic and sophisticated in western eyes. It's worn for formal occasions. For informal ones the woman just wear a tunic with slits on the side.

I was in an indian wedding once of a close friend in school. My friend was very sweet girl but some of the attendees, members of  the fashionable upper crust were quite snotty. I couldn't afford a sari of course so I wore a pretty red dress.

I felt like an ugly duckling tbh. Wedding is the one place the rich from poor countries get to decked out in their best display and look down on countries with higher economic status. See how ridiculous the Trudeaus look.

I was at a Moroccan wedding with all the women decking out in Islamic inspired attires including Indians and their saris. I thought my GF looked the best.  Too many colors can be distracting.  Just choose one nice solid color and work around it.

Thanks, this blog has been really helpful in showing me what it’s really like being an interior designer from the inside! I want to be an interior designer in the future, and want to find out more about it. Could you possibly tell me where I could find out more, work experience or different courses? I’d be very grateful. I really liked this, thank you.
