The Summer season is really the time to redecorate your home. With more time to focus on home projects, you may want to start with a completely blank slate. You’ll need new furniture, new decorations, a fresh coat of paint, and new floors. Before you invest your time and money into this big undertaking, consider your personal decor style. Here are five of the most popular design styles on the market right now.
The Farmhouse Style has been popular for a few years now thanks to HGTV stars like Chip and Joanna Gaines. Using elements like reclaimed hardwood, black or silver steel, and worn-out finishes, the style creates the appearance of a modern country living space. Rustic looks may also incorporate vintage accessories and many real or fake plants throughout the house. Most importantly, the Farmhouse style aims to create a sense of warmth and comfort, instead of the cold, harsh tones of more contemporary designs.
To achieve the perfect modern look, you will want to use furniture, flooring, and accent pieces with clean and crisp lines. Don’t go heavy on the color. Keep the room light with neutrals. The Modern Style is quite broad, but the main theme behind the design is the keep it simple. Don’t clutter up your space with unneeded decorations. Instead, opt for geometric artwork or patterned pillows to add a slight contrast.
This creative and interpretive style as inspired by the designs of the 1950s and 1960s. There has been a resurgence of nostalgia over the last couple of years, and the millennial generation tends to lean toward Mid-Century Modern elements. Its retro elements combined with the funky and geometric shapes of the furniture and decorations make the style both functional and fun.
Another huge trend among the millennial generation is the Bohemian or Boho style. This style is not about uniformity, but rather reflects the carefree lifestyle of the individual. Use anything from vintage chairs to modern rugs to crystalized chandeliers. It is all about being unique and using decorations found from your travels or your bargain hunts. Just follow your instincts and put together the room as you please.
Although not as popular as it used to be, Traditional Style home decor pieces are still in abundance at furniture galleries and craft stores. Inspired by European elements like dark, finished woods, rich colors, curved lines, and ostentatious patterns, this style has been used over several decades. The furniture and accents are usually very timeless and can give any room depth and dimension.
If you still can’t decide which home decor style suits you best, try the transitional approach. This way of decorating blends several styles into one, without looking overbearing or mismatched.
