The choices of interior design styles today are endless but you can eliminate confusion by knowing your likes and dislikes and being aware of the three basic categories that decorating styles fall into. You can then easily choose a home decorating style that suits your tastes and reflects your personality.
The three categories that home decorating styles fall into are Casual, Modern and Traditional. Interiors are characterized by distinct features in the colors, line and forms, patterns, motifs, material textures, patterns and scale of the furnishings and interior decoration. For example, Casual style exudes an informal, relaxed and comfortable appearance. This is achieved with natural and rough textures and lighter woods. Interior decoration may include found items from flea markets for a lived-in look. Complete the home decor with open shelving displays. Furniture arrangements are generally asymmetrical.
In Modern home interiors, lines and shapes are clean and geometric, pattern and decoration are minimal. Incorporate metals such as chrome and shiny finishes such as glass in the decor. Use materials such as concrete in unconventional ways – kitchen countertops for example. Interiors are generally clutter free.
Traditional decorating incorporates more ornate but classic and timeless patterns such as plaids, florals and damasks, shiny surfaces and darker woods. Antique and carved furnishings add historical ambience to interiors. The feel of the decor is understated and calm. Furniture arrangements tend to be symmetrical.
Also determine the degree of formality you want to express in the interior decor: will it be informal (less rigid sense of order), semi-formal or formal (strong sense of order and grandeur)then combine with one of the three design styles, for example, formal traditional, casual modern etc.
