Find Your Interior Design Style!
Before you begin any design project, it’s very important to discover the interior design aesthetic that works for you. Often, your space’s architecture can help define the tone for the interior; alternately, juxtaposing opposite design elements could be used to express your personal style. With various design genres to work within, a general understanding of each can serve as a foundation to begin defining your vision.
Listed below is a sample of the most frequently practiced design styles. There are many more to consider when establishing your personal design style and often, elements of some genres can complement others to create a space that is uniquely you. There are several examples of architectural and interior design styles to be seen throughout our website.
Classical design is characterized by symmetry, balance, and the use of grand focal points. Roman and Greek styling inspire this design genre that is steeped in classic tradition. Inspiration is drawn from historic periods where an emphasis on lavish styling and immaculate balance are key features. Designs are centered on a main focal point like a grand staircase or ornate fireplace, maintaining furnishings in strict order. Upholstery patterns are kept to a minimum, to place emphasis on the architecture and ornate decor.
Contemporary style is defined by clean lines, sculptural elements, and the carefully considered use of color. Furniture pieces consist of straight lines and are an artful mixture of wood, textiles, and metals. Whites and neutrals are often accentuated by bold colors. Texture is a significant aspect of contemporary design to ensure the space has an inviting aesthetic rather than feeling cold and austere. The focus of contemporary design is function first. Decoration for the sake of filling blank spaces is kept to a minimum; in modern design, accent pieces are strategically incorporated to serve a purpose while also adding visual interest.
In contrast with contemporary design, traditional spaces feature furniture and accents that are gracious and ornamental in design. Fabrics for furniture, windows, and other parts of the home will reflect elegance through a combination of floral prints, damask patterns, and stripes. Wing-backed chairs, claw-footed tables, and furniture pieces that hearken back to the 18th and 19th centuries are often used. Highly coordinated spaces are a trademark of traditional design where textiles are carried throughout, used on upholstered furniture, patterned wallpapers, and complementary window dressings.
Country-inspired design can reflect American, French or Swedish country. In all styles, the aim is comfort and honesty in design. Furniture is either handcrafted or made to look that way and presents materials in their more natural, unfinished state. Decoration is often comprised of antique or faux antique pieces that reflect life in the country. Fabric patterns reflect agricultural themes printed on toiles and bleached linens. Colors are usually muted to create a quiet and warm aesthetic.
