9 Basic Styles in Interior Design

At the start of any interior design project, we wonder in what style should create our interior home in order to feel good in that environment. While I emphasize the main characteristics of each one of them, I will try to join some interiors or products that illustrate each style separately.  If someone likes classic lines, you can’t suggest something modern because she believes that what is proposed isn’t represented for her taste, devoid of atmosphere, simple, and will not transmit anything.

1. Modern Minimalist Style

This style is a form of extreme accuracy, nothing is too much, without heavy backgrounds. The emphasis is on simplicity, the colors may be dull or bright, in any case, flashy colors. Pieces are either geometric shapes – square, rectangular, round, but the surfaces are clean, no scenery, no details. Minimalist modern style by its name illustrates the simplified forms.

4. Classic Reinterpreted Style

It is a refined style, elegant, where classic forms details are found in a new approach. The forms preserves the structure of old forms or parts in general updating them sometimes, or some elements of a furniture style combined with modern elements, creating that fusion between old and new. Finishing parts are in a new approach-painted and varnished, with different and innovative colors, surface gold, silver, finished with patina or serigraphic.

5. Retro Style

It is the style of ’50s, ’60s or ’70s. In that period it is anticipated design pieces to come. The songs have a playful approach, funny structure, their form and the play of colors and prints that we find in each piece. We find for the first time new approaches to design forms, yet they remain air-old began the design lines. Prints with geometric shapes, lines, plaid or printed with illustrations belonging to the Pop Art style.

6. Maverick Style

It is part of modern style, his approach is very inventive, unusual, and unconventional. Young, explosive, inventive not respect the rules. The structure can be obtained by joining pieces, overlapping volumes and volumes twisting colors can be randomly chosen even for the same room, seemingly nothing happens, only part of the eccentricity of this style.

7. Contemporary Style

The style is contemporary-modern style but maintains a hot line through selected finishes and color range used. The songs do not seem very new, modern, cool.  Colors are balanced, warm, bright tones and pastel can be out of the question when it comes to these style. Finishes warm, wood-veneer, solid wood doors with frames or appearance to look more polished and panels upholstered with leather or sometimes, may be characteristic of this style. Textile materials, velvet, plush, upholstered pieces ptr skin are often used in shaping the ambience characteristic of this style. Printed plates, vegetable or floral color stains can not be used to amaze complete certain parts of decorated cushions, carpets, etc. Scandinavian modern style can be defined as a contemporary style.

Screws, rivets, wheels apparent booms, rough metal finishes, appearances bulbs are specific to this style.

9. Elegant Country Style

Rural style is an elegant furniture style with influences from English, French, or Scandinavian classic pure style can be called rural chic. Furniture finishes are nice, bright colors-white, pastel colors, and forms were taking over traditional furniture but not abundant decorations. Surfaces are painted or sometimes have a slight patina.

Probably the most common variant of the elegant country style is the Cape Code style. Houses designed in the Cape Code style will include pastel colors, distressed wood features, wood-paneled walls, lots of windows, and what the folks at AnyWeather Roofing call “dormers,” which are windows that protrude from the roof of the house. Cape Cod-style homes are highly sought after for their cozy look and feel.
