Interior Design Styles
Editor In Chief, United Home Improvement
Interior design is a process of illuminating and accentuating
interior surfaces, including but not limited to window treatments,
upholstery, furniture, walls and floor coverings. There are hundreds
of varieties of interior surface treatments, most of which can be
grouped into unique styles.
Popular interior design styles include your Traditional/Classic
Design, Country Style, Contemporary Style, and Eclectic Style. You
also have your Colonial and Victorian styles as well as Southwestern
and Mediterranean styles. Such styles mimic interior treatments from
their unique worldly places.
Traditional/Classic Designs are timeless styles. Rich colors,
luxurious fabrics, elegant wood finishes, and brass are common
components of the Traditional Design. It is considered to be a more
formal design approach.
Country Styles can be divided into American Country, French Country
and English Country. All three offer an overall feeling of serenity.
Vintage antiques, simple cabinetry, a fireplace, and charismatic
accessories are used to create a relaxed, cozy environment.
Contemporary Styles offer a sleek modern appeal. Angular and
geometric lines are used to create a spacious, sparkling look. Color
schemes are commonly used with contemporary styles. Other modern
styles include the High Tech Designs which incorporate stainless
steel, chrome, and black accents.
Eclectic Styles integrate a variety of styles to form a fresh,
layered appeal. Both old and new styles, as well as an array of
colors, fabrics and textures can be used to create this style. Each
room can have its own unique feel and identity.
