Which interior design style is best for your living room?
The styles below are some of my client homes and represent different interior design styles.
Eclectic Interior Design Style
It is a mixture of different styles. The sofa, coffee table and the chairs are traditional while the artwork, rug, end tables and accent color (orange) are transitional. This is a look that has a creative feel but is still very comfortable and easy to live with.
Transitional Interior Design Style
This is a popular look today. This look sometimes gets confused with contemporary. Transitional is very clean looking, but not as hard edged as contemporary. Transitional still has some traditional influences and can have soft lines. There should be less detail. Colors can be fun and accessories should be artistic.
Contemporary Interior Design
Contemporary is always changing, but it usually has straighter lines, polished metal, harder edges and white backgrounds. It is a great look for someone who likes to collect contemporary artwork. Brightly colored accents add interest to the look.
Traditional Interior Design
Most traditional interior design is made up of period furniture of the 18th and 19th century from Europe and America. There can be carving and large detailed moldings. It has a classic look and will never go out of style. The look is rich and dramatic. Colors are rich, but not too bright. Detailed and dramatic draperies are used. The accessories are layered and can be ornate.
Soft Feminine French Design Style
This feminine French style uses soft shades of blue and aqua mixed with off white. This look is all about soft colors and soft French lines. The chair has beautiful hand carved detail and the chest is hand painted. The draperies are made of a soft flowing print fabric hung on a beautiful wood pole. The look is finished with a French painting and crystal chandelier.
This look incorporates modern styling with menswear fabrics. This is a masculine look with herringbone sofa fabric, wool plaid pillows and alligator embossed leather. The sofa, table and armoire have a modern look and the tufted cocktail ottoman adds a dramatic touch.
