Sparked by the need to reduce our environmental footprint and our desire to be one with nature, urban residents have found new ways to integrate agriculture into a digitalized world. Taking the advantages of technology and morphing them with original agricultural methods, Urban Adaptation has led to sleek designs full of beneficial environmental impact. Mixing natural elements with the artificial feel of technology has resulted in a new form of “modern farmhouse” designed for the urban, ecologically friendly, tech-savvy resident. Raw woods, vibrant greens, and muted blues provide a calming sensation of being one with nature, while more functional items, like planters, serve to depollute the air of waste carbon gases.
Color: Chlorophyllic greens, wetted olive green, silted sediment and wood-tone browns, and muted sea blues.
Pattern: Leaf motifs and marbling paired with clean and modern geometrics and sleek brushwork. Nature-inspired tree rings, porous forms, organic shapes in a mix of shiny and matte finishes.
Experiment with the color combinations below to capture the urban adaptation look.
