The way in which we decorate our homes, offices and the spaces we occupy is often a reflection of who we are, and what we find beautiful. Interior designers can only assist you in arranging your space, but it is ultimately up to you to make your home space feel like home to you. Designing our spaces brings out the artists in us when we take on the task of filling the canvas which we call home.
There are many different design styles that can guide you into creating the perfect space for you, here are a few;
Minimalism, the concept of minimalistic design is to keep a space clean, open and reduce the decor in a room to the necessary elements. This is quite trendy currently, but it is timeless and is the epitome of the phrase “simplicity is key”.
Art Deco is a design style that consists mainly of geometric styles in the designs, sleek lines in the furnishing and glass tops.
The Arts and Craft deign style is a thrifters dream, the space is decorated with pieces that often show how they are made, or actual DIY pieces.
The Mediterranean design style is inspired by the coastal regions of Spain. It often mixes fabrics such as velvet, linen and silk and fills the space with lush items.
High Tech design style highlights structure in the furniture that decorates the space, it often has glass or metal finishes and the colours used in the space are mainly neutrals.
When designing and decorating, you do not have to limit yourself to one design style, you can fuse design styles that work for you and create a perfect blend. Think of it as an art project, it is about an expression of the self and finding creative ways to do so. So whether you’re into DIY or Lux and lavish styles go out there and make your space feel like home.
