When we talk about customising spaces, what we have in mind is a place for everyday living that represents who we are, a place where we can live and work surrounded by furnishings and objects we like, without following any particular stylistic rules or guidelines.
The great variety of solutions, products and materials available on the market today is intended to help us make a choice that may seem simple and immediate, but very often isn’t.
After all, the heterogenous nature of contemporary design is one of its most evident features, as in the so-called mix and match style.
This style values unusual colours and shapes and juxtaposes very different materials, often from different times and places, reclaiming objects and finding new uses for them.
All in perfect freedom, with no rules and regulations!
Another example is decoration, a consideration very often set aside in contemporary minimalist styles which is now back in vogue in interior design with new energy and vitality.
As a highly expressive element, decoration is a direct form of communication of great appeal that can say a lot about us and our tastes and sensibilities.
In spaces for dining, wellness and fitness, hospitality and entertainment, decoration can also represent an added value, a business card for enterprises, and is no longer considered something superfluous that we can do without.
To help us in this creative process, the development of numerous technical procedures now permits us to imagine and implement solutions and effects that were unthinkable until only a few years ago, especially in the world of surfaces.
