Interior Design Styles

At the start of any interior design project, it’s always a good idea to define what style should be incorporated to create in our own home in order to feel good in that environment.

Although the top 5 design styles are typically Modern, Contemporary, Traditional, Industrial/Urban, and Classic, decorating styles have dramatically evolved over the centuries. Many of these styles were created out of previous styles and have evolved into very unique forms that allow us to express individual personality and taste.

Come join us and explore a few fun and adventurous approaches to design.

INTERIOR DESIGN STYLES: TONAL CHIC

Create a modern tonal chic decor style by using one or two colors or by layering pale neutral shades of toffee, cream and caramel. A modern feel can be achieved by incorporating a tonal palette enhanced with reflective surface treatments such as gleaming hints of brass or silver that catch the light. These clean lines don’t need to be cold and minimalistic – add layers of earthy organic pieces, lush layers and contemporary pieces. One of our favorite interior designers is Mollie Johnson. Her interiors lean toward a pared-down palette, yet each one is incredibly inviting and unique. “When you have one or two colors, it’s just much easier on the eye.  It’s quieter than a bunch of shades, but can be more elegant and beautiful.” – Mollie Johnson.

COASTAL

INTERIOR DESIGN STYLES: COASTAL

A coastal look can easily be achieved by incorporating a sandy palette, gentle hues of blues and greens with whitewashed accents. Nothing says “coastal living” quite like an open living room, oversized sofas, nautical stripes and sea inspired accents such as ropes, sailboats and sea-side prints. Rich polished wood reminds us of the hull of a mighty ship, and thickly woven jute, high luster finishes and crisp linen pair well with a range of oceanic hues and stormy grays. Navy and white are the backbone of a sailing-inspired look. You can tone down the nautical theme by incorporating pillows in modern prints and creamy neutrals instead of stark whites as shown in the featured image above (designed by Muskoka Living Interiors designer Cory DeFrancisco). Create your own breezy and effortless chic space with these coastal-inspired finds.

FARMHOUSE

INTERIOR DESIGN STYLES: FARMHOUSE

Farmhouse decor and decorating style reflects a slower, more relaxed pace of life in the country. Farmhouse decorating is all about simplicity and keeping things organic. The finer details matter with this approach, and it works best when elements incorporated portray a rustic, minimal and cozy feel. Old is gold and it’s good to keep things as authentic as possible. Think exposed beams overhead, distressed woods, natural textures, floral curtains, vintage and whitewashed décor, a neutral color palette, galvanized metal accents, salvaged goods and implementing raw and organic materials in the foundation. Forego clutter and be selective in where items are placed. Bring the outdoors in with houseplants, preserved wreaths, and herb gardens. When in doubt, fill a mason jar with fresh flowers to complete the look for any space. When it comes to colors, neutral hues create a calming space; linen and cotton upholstery reinforce this laid-back style. Rustic wood furniture and galvanized metal finishes add to the lived-in feel.

URBAN EARTHY

INTERIOR DESIGN STYLES: URBAN EARTHY

Urban, earthy & au naturel, these stunning spaces accomplish their balance and sophistication through the layering of textures, keeping color scheme to a minimum and incorporating organic and monochromatic accents. If you are designing a monochromatic color scheme based on neutrals, it works well to tailor your neutral scheme to harmonize with the neutral colors that already exist in the room. Think natural furnishings, monochromatic accents, wood furniture, burls, sea-grass planters, cane Hoffmann dining chairs and an influence of the outdoors.
