15 Classic Interior Design Styles

If you’re thinking about redecorating your home, the first thing you need to think about is what style of decor you want for your home. There are so many different styles when it comes to interior design, from modern to industrial. We suggest you take this guide to help you decide before you shop:

1.Minimalist – Minimalist interior design consists of the bare essentials to create a simple and uncluttered space. Some say it’s very similar to modern interior design, only simpler. An important key is to keep the space sparse and very open.

2. Contemporary style – Contemporary style has more freedom than minimalist, the shapes are usually focused on square and graphic lines. It’s characterized by simplicity, subtle sophistication, the deliberate use of textures and clean lines.

3 Rustic – Rustic is a natural, rough, old and casual style. Rustic style emphasizes natural and weathered surfaces, raw wood, stone and leather. Rustic interior style looks like you’re taking inspiration from nature.

4. Traditional – Traditional is the most common and popular style of interior design. It’s largely based on the European styles of the 18th and 19th centuries. This style is very timeless and cozy without being fancy. When designing a traditional interior, choose pieces that appeal to you.

5. French country style – French country style is a mix of rustic and refined decor, inspired by the houses in the French countryside. This style is very grown up, with geometric prints and a mix of artwork and coffee tables.

6.Coastal – This style of decor literally screams beach. Coastal style colors feature lots of light greens, blues, beiges and whites. Think beach house with cozy, inviting rugs and sea glass details.

7. Shabby chic- Shabby Chic is a style with antique and French vintage design. It represents a worn, lived-in look with a mix of vintage and new decor and feminine accents.

8. Urban modern – Urban modern is a very trendy and current interior style. It’s very common in city apartments. This style has a softer, cozier look and is perfect for city living.

9 Bohemian – Bohemian style is a carefree style that’s characterized by a lack of structures. Bohemian style consists of different patterns, textures and colors. This style is very relaxed and carefree with different jewel tones and beaded fabrics.

10. Eclectic – This style is similar to the Bohemian style but more grown up and structured, still very energetic but more defined. There are still bold color palettes and textures, but everything is combined.

11.Modern farmhouse – When you think of modern farmhouse, you think of traditional country living. It’s a lot of warmth, practicality, comfort, and a relaxed approach in it. Rustic, industrial and minimalist all in one.

12. Scandinavian – This design style has three main elements that it prides itself on: functionality, simplicity and craftsmanship. Nordic style is characterized by organic shapes, white surfaces and gray undertones.

13. Industrial – Think warehouses and factories with a mix of urban style. It’s a dark, neutral color scheme. A lot of bare brick, metal and wood are used.

14. Modern country style -  Modern country style is characterized by a dynamic mix of rough and organic elements, which is a warm and cozy interpretation of interior classics. This style is characterized by a relaxed and natural look.

15. Mid-century modern- The mid-century modern style is inspired by the 50s and 60s and is a clear retro style. This style is characterized by narrow tables and table legs on dresses and tables. Very simple, straight silhouettes, organic shapes, calm fabrics and emphasis on functionality are the hallmarks of the Mid-Century Modern style.

Mid-Century Isn’t Dead

Where did this come from?

Last year Mid-Century Modern was predicted to move out of the spotlight. The clean lines and gentle organic curves of the designs became very popular as they gave us a new love for different materials and designs. Bauhaus architects and designers migrated to America as a result of economic changes in Germany after the Second World War and then started a design movement known as Mid-Century Modern.

The Style

Mid-Century Modern is characterized by simplicity and functionality. The style grew in America based on earlier styles such as Bauhaus which began in Germany, and the International style, which grew from the Bauhaus style in America. It has become such a trend today because in “uncertain times” people tend to look for more security in their spaces. And the familiarity of Traditional and Classic design elements is truly an antidote for uncertainty!

Distinguishing Features

The distinguishing features of this style consist of a classic, understated look, and clean lines with minimal fuss.

  • Functionality is important, as form follows function
  • Uncluttered and sleek lines with both organic and geometric forms
  • Minimal ornamentation
  • An exploration of different traditional as well as non-traditional materials
  • The juxtaposition of different, and sometimes contrasting materials

How to furnish in Mid-Century Modern Style

As with any period, do not feel a compulsion to create a replica of those times from the architecture to the furnishings to the landscaping. You can, if you feel compelled, but a lot of homeowners just starting out feel intimidated when tackling style they love. It can also prove to be very expensive to get authentic pieces, even though many are still being made or have been revived due to demand. Start by buying one large piece and then build around it. It does not have to be a set, but avoid too many patterns and stay within a color range, especially for wood.

Mid-Century Modern is still a very relevant trend, with popularity still on the rise. Going up 6% just this year alone.
