The Pop Art focuses on the contrast of colours, both bright and soft. The most popular tones are: red, orange, blue, green and yellow. The main thing in a Pop Art style interior design is to create an ambience. This is a straightforward, humorous style that uses a host of different materials. Pop Art is synonymous with eccentricity, openness and daring.
Easy to recognize a Pop Art interior: there are always colourful frames or posters hanging there, à la Andy Warhol. This style denounces the excesses of the consumer society and transforms consumer products into playful and original works of art. Who doesn't know Campbell's cans or the multicoloured portrait of Marylin Monroe? The colours used in Pop Art amaze and dazzle.
To bring the Pop Art style in your home, simply add colour accents on your walls, furniture, accessories, lighting, curtains, etc. An old vintage piece of furniture will add character to this type of interior. In order not to overdo it and avoid kitsch, be sure to keep a sober white wall, which will balance the different colour combinations.
Colour Combinations: Variations Of The Same Tone
For a Pop Art style interior, there's nothing like bright colour accents. And, for perfect harmony, the ideal is to choose a few variations of these same colours and to dress your accessories with them. Do you opt, for example, for a bright red wall? Then add orange or light red accessories. This will create pretty colour combinations without going overboard.
Dynamic And Playful
Pop Art is an artistic movement dating back to the 1960s, but still widely used today. A Pop Art interior exudes energy and good humour. While “vibrant colour combinations” is the keyword of this style, soft tones are equally important.
Finally, opt for the right furniture, which will polish everything. Arne Jacobsen's Egg chair, the famous Panton chair or a vintage arched lamp are all Pop Art elements par excellence!
