Young, Cool, Hip: That's What Make These Homes Stand Out

June 2, 2015
BOOKMARK

It seems like everyone nowadays is hopping on the hipster bandwagon and the same definitely goes for homeowners with many of them seeking out interior design firms to help them to create homes which are bursting with personality.

The hipster trend is a way of life and what better way to channel your cool factor then by creating a home that you can marvel at. Here, we share with you 8 homes that have all the right hipster elements, setting the bar for an eye-catching interior.

1. Although unfinished brick walls are an ubiquitous interior design element, these homeowners artfully merged the brick wall with an undone wooden wall to create this quirky masterpiece. To channel an industrial feel, the coffee table resembles a wheelbarrow while a clock and lighting are integrated into the exposed piping on the wall. Hanging pendant lamps also inject a cool, laid back vibe to this living space.

2. We can’t rave enough about this trendy home. The floor-to-ceiling blackboard that is artfully drawn on with chalk creates a café-like ambience to the dining area. We also love the effortlessly chic incorporation of magazines into the design of the bar counter. Even the bathroom is Instagram-worthy with its patterned monochrome floor tiles and free-standing bathtub. The cherry on top is the subtle use of bricks throughout the home.

3. Doesn’t the living room of this home look like something taken from a movie scene? The myriad of dangling lightbulbs are enchanting and together with the full length windows, the whole space is suffused with light and appears charmingly cool. The geometrically-quirky study chair is another unique element and the quirky vibe of the entire home certainly makes this home a trendy one to live in.

4. This home definitely reflects the homeowners’ attention to detail in the creation of a hip industrial home. From a vintage telephone in the living room to a leaning ladder bookshelf in the bedroom, this home bears all the markers of a 1980s shophouse. Peranakan tiles add a quaint finishing touch to a retro-industrial look. This home takes a step back in time and shows that an old-school design can be trendy too!

5. What better way to up the style factor of a home than by including some tasteful artwork? These homeowners definitely got it right as seen from the paintings and picture frames around the home. The floor-to-celing mural tie in nicely with the black and yellow throw pillows on the sofa. The hipster look in the living room is completed with hanging exposed lightbulbs. Framed posters aptly displayed on a brick wall in the dining area is another funky element in this chic home.

6. This home is such a joy to behold. The classic brick wall bears a vintage clock setting a cool old-school ambience to the living room. The homeowners add a personal touch by displaying Polaroid snapshots along a leaning mirror. Not forgetting the casually plopped beanbag chair at the corner, which oozes a laid-back vibe. Inspired by trendy cafés, this interior’s dining area also has dangling lights and a wall mounted chalkboard, which the homeowners have decorated adorably!

7. With every corner in this interior displaying quirky elements, Katy Perry would be proud to call this place home! The neon love sign emanates reddish-yellow lighting, bathing the living room with a soft romantic feel. In contrast, the brightly coloured island with bar stools and pop art displayed on the wall evokes a funky mood to the kitchen. The bathroom with its yellow and black colour scheme uses Lego-like floor tiles and a honeycomb design on the wall to channel the feel of a beehive. Hip factor 10/10!
