What style are you?
Trends come and go, but there are some main stay interior styles that stay the test of time.
During lockdown, I’ve been busy sourcing lots of inspiring room style images and ideas. I’ve written my latest blog to help you identify and make your own creative decision on your home style which I hope will give you the confidence to make decisions when you begin your next home interior project.
There are eight key interiors design styles from Scandinavian to Contemporary.
This week I’ll share some tips for you on 4 current trends,
The Scandinavian Room Style
Think cosy accents, Scandi is cool, and features simple colours. The design is inspired by the snowy mountains and the beautiful Nordic Fjords. Layer wool, fabrics and fur for this style of interior. Think pared back cosiness, clean lines and lots of textures. Follow the link for some chunky style cable throws or a gorgeous Stag scatter cushion.
The Ecclectic Room Style
Take this small cloakroom which mixes ideas from a range of different periods, styles and trends.
Break the rules, have a little fun with this style and inject your own personality into your decorating – that’s what the eclectic style is all about. However, don’t throw everything into one room, but pay attention to how each piece relates to one another. The very best eclectic interiors are a blend of old, new, colour, texture and pattern.
The Industrial Room Style
Think bare brick, mixed with rough textures but solid structures in steel, brass or stone. Stripped back floorboards give an effective nod to this Industrial trend. If you add a mix of statement lights this will help soften a cold space. Let your colour choice be guided by the raw materials for the true authentic look but keep in mind this is your home and not a factory. Its good to mix in Accent Chairs like our gorgeous Len Armchair, rugs, art and textiles to soften the edges.
The Vintage Room Style
Far from old-fashioned, vintage interior styling can be incredibly versatile. Whether you’re after a look that is charming and pretty or retro and edgy, adding some key vintage pieces can help you bring the room together. The best vintage interiors avoid looking overly twee by keeping clutter to a minimum. A vintage style dressing table is a fabulous way to update your interior in a stylish but practical way. Showcase your trinkets or vintage accessories and allow yourself to get creative.
The best way to create an inviting home is to mix new furniture with vintage pieces, this is the most effective way to soften the look of new furniture. The perfect way to incorporate a vintage style is to look at the room's initial colour palette and add something extra. It’s best not to use similar materials and finishes but be bold and have something totally different and unique. A vintage piece should never blend in the room but should be a stand-out feature of the room that has the wow factor.
