Camouflage seems to be a successful practice for exteriors, like we have shown you in this article before. The philosophy there linked to a more protective mechanism, in order to become one with nature and to hide from potential enemies.
What we will show you today, presents a slightly different strategy, and probably more artistic one than the one of the exterior architectural approach we have presented before. We gathered interesting examples that do not evoke the most hospital feeling, furthermore they are intentionally dedicated to a vivid, bold and courageous spirit. That’s why we name this style Neo Camouflage.
It is no secret how this look can be achieved: most or even all of the objects are covered with the same pattern, color or material. Furniture and interior accessories appear to merge with the walls, ceiling or floor and it all seems to be made out of one material and all borders are likely to disappear. The objects, that are being presented, visually connect with its surroundings and despite the strong and obvious colors and patterns, a naturalistic note comes as, as the stylings create an integrity as a whole. Also, if you embark to this style fully, those interiors have the ability to transport us to another time, place and dimension and reminds us to take a good look at the big picture instead of getting lost in details.
This might not be a decorative style that will endure for the next few centuries but during our extensive research it has emerged again and again and is always reinterpreted in new exciting and fresh perspectives. What matters above else is the split form tradition and to celebrate the courageous use of bold patterns and colors.
As a total opposition to tradition, this movement can be also seen as a continuation, as a stylistic and decorative addition of the tone – on – tone trend we have been observing lately.
