Our Homes’ HOMES FOR THE HOLIDAYS
For Christmas 2016, Our Home presents HOMES FOR THE HOLIDAYS. Our Home, together with the graduating students from Philippine School of Interior Design collaborate for an exhibit focusing on three different themes: Contemporary, Industrial, and Neo Baroque styles of furniture and furnishings- all from Our Home branches.
I was able to visit the Megamall branch to check out some of the lovely Christmas designs. The PSID graduating students did an awesome job decorating their respective themes. Note that all of the items they used are available at Our Home branches so you can buy all the stuff that you see there! 🙂
The INDUSTRIAL Theme:
Heavy and rustic, with a strong masculine vibe, the industrial style is rough and raw but with a comfortable and cozy aftertaste. This trend focuses on deep, warm leather with wrought iron or cast iron accents and dark wood finishes providing a backdrop for the style. The industrial style is anchored in the tactile sense, owing its appeal to surfaces and finishes that can be felt or touched. Unique and a standout, this style centers on textures that appeal to an unconventional style palette. The style is homey yet stark, cozy yet hard and rough yet comfortable. Appealing to those who want to create an atmosphere that is quite individual and unique, the industrial style is guaranteed to elicit a twice look-over.
The NEO-BAROQUE Theme:
Posh and plush, luxurious and opulent, this style banks on the glamor and glitz of the 17th century and the sensible lines of the present to create a style that is both modern yet elegant. Soft and textured fabrics or leather punctuated with tufting in geometric patterns are the highlights of this style. A touch of shimmer and shine provided by gold and silver accents together with glass, steel and crystal evoke opulence amidst modern shapes and proportions. The Neo-Baroque vibe is modish and feminine, sateen and satin, mirrors and chrome provide finishes that evoke and elicit a classy and posh ambiance in a setting that is almost devoid of color with grays and beiges predominating or in a stark and dramatic black and/or white backdrop.
The CONTEMPORARY Theme:
The new and the now, the contemporary style centers of key pieces that are considered current and up to date. The contemporary style capitalizes on streamlined silhouettes and compact proportions that reveal a classy yet modern feel. Colors are light, encompassing the achromatic and neutral palette and are deemed safe and soft. Shapes are geometric with subtle rounded curves that evoke a smooth and straightforward approach to style. The contemporary style relies heavily on the premise that it is trendy without the fear of being dated. These are styles in furniture and furnishings that are constant and consistent, without the worry of being out of style. They consist of soft, solid textures devoid of print and are easy on the eyes. Glass, stainless steel, and light finished wood are the cornerstones of textures this style is anchored on.
My favorite from all the themes is the Neo-Baroque style. I had fun posing in the pictures on the living room and on the bedroom! The design is sooooo dainty and I really felt the Christmas vibe while on that particular set-up. Which one do you like from all three themes?
