Back in the day (just a few years ago) styles such as Contemporary and Traditional were the lighting choices that were offered. Now, many styles with new names have surfaced. Following is a guide for these new styles offered by a couple of my vendors; Crystorama and Maxim.
Before tackling a major home renovation, it’s important to understand your interior design style. What style do you gravitate towards and what style to you want to stay away from? Styles are constantly changing and evolving so this is break down when looking for decor inspiration.
Styles I will mention in this blog and continue in the next are Boho, Minimalist, Eclectic, Modern, Traditional, Rustic, Industrial and Glam.
This is one of the most common styles, incorporating classic details. Structure, symmetry, and rich colors with detailed fabrics represent elegance and comfort.
Bohemian design is generally inspired by those who lead a free-spirited, norm-defying life. Layering with natural materials, different types of lighting and eclectic patterns instantly help to achieve the look.
One of the most refined of design styles, commands bare essentials and clean lines. Everything in the room must have a purpose with functionality and most of all, simplicity.
I think this style speaks loud and clear of our home. This style encompasses a mixture of textures, time periods, trends, and colors. This style is about presenting your personality without the rules of predictability. The use of unexpected combinations, textures and statement pieces can be fun. We have many old items from our parents and bright colors that I love, leather furniture as well as wild prints on comfy chairs. I do believe this is my favorite style and I’m sticking to it.
