An amazing starting point for an interior design project is to learn a bit about each of the styles and how they differ from one another.
There are so many different styles that you can use to decorate your house to give you the feel of a home. A place that represents not only how you feel within but also reflects your vibrations. Come along and take a look at the different kinds of home decor you can implement to suit your sense of style!
Modern home/houses are typically defined as a place with clean, crisp lines with a simple color palette. The materials used are metal, glass, and steel. Modern design reflects a sense of simplicity in every element, including furniture. Modern style is synonymous with sleekness, and is bereft of clutter or accessories..
Contemporary design is based on the “now”.
Contemporary design is fluid and includes curving lines, showcasing pattern, repetition, rhythm, balance, contrast, emphasis, movement, unity, and harmony.
The concept of modern design, simplified art along with neutral and airy color palettes best defines the minimalistic form of home décor. Furnishings are simple and streamlined, without anything excessive or flamboyant in accessories. Minimalism reflects a sense of functionality and is synonymous with ultra-clean lines, repetition of geometric patterns – lines or squares, and is monochromatic.
An Industrial style draws inspiration from a warehouse or an urban loft. It reflects a sense of unfinished rawness in its elements – exposed brick, ductwork, and wood. An iconic home with an industrial design theme would be a renovated loft, high ceilings, old timber, and dangling metal light fixtures complemented by sparse functional furniture. You can add one or two pieces of abstract art or photography to add a tiny dash of color to this soothing and neutral color scheme which is derived from the primary materials of metal and wood.
Classic details, sumptuous furnishings, and an abundance of accessories best define the Traditional look. Rooted in European, British, Indian, Rural, Urban, or old classic American sensibilities, (rewrite this part) Traditional homes often display dark finished wood with rich color palettes and a variety of textures and curved lines. Furnishings have elaborate and ornate details and fabrics, like velvet, silk, and brocade, which may include a variety of patterns and textures. The designs encompasses depth and layering..
This is a vintage-inspired style. Compared with other styles, this tends to be more feminine, soft, and delicate. Shabby chic furnishings are often either distressed or are made to appear that way; paint tends to have antique-style finishes. The color palette include white, cream, and pastels. Light fixtures and wall hangings display ornate and continue the feminine vibe of the shabby chic design.
