Interior Design Styles

1. English Country Style

Imagine steeped charm, rustic warmth, and natural materials. English country style incorporates antique furnishings, layered rugs, charming architectural details, and florals.

If this whimsical charm resonates with you, consider including shelves of books, cozy reading nooks, and a mix of antique furniture in your space.

2. Modern Design Style

Modern design has evolved, becoming softer and more sophisticated. Clean lines remain, but the new modern style embraces a refined material mix, natural elements, and a tonal color palette.

Focus on sculptural and clean-lined furniture, mix natural materials, and incorporate contrasting artisanal accents for a welcoming modern space.

Simplify your material mix, focus on sustainable and eco-conscious building materials, and incorporate furniture made from sustainably harvested materials for a calming, rejuvenating atmosphere.


5. Bohemian Design Style

Embrace a free-spirited, eclectic way of decorating with Bohemian style. Layered color schemes, antique and vintage accessories, patterned rugs, and live plants create an eclectic and creative atmosphere.
