What’s Your Home Aesthetic?
Many of our clients start thinking about their interior design before their dream home layout is even drafted! Many renovations and new builds stem from longing for change.
Are you looking for that refresh in a rebuild? Do you know your aesthetic? Or is it just time for you to step into a change for your new chapter? Let's explore!
Below we've listed some classic interior design aesthetics to inspire your next change:
Author Cara Greenberg coined this name in her 1984 collection; mid-century modern is an American design movement in interior, product, graphic design, architecture, and urban development that was popular from around 1945 to 1969, during the United States' post–WWII period.
This trend was inspired by industrial spaces and old factories, perhaps out of necessity to convert old or abandoned buildings into urban living. The "industrial style" consists of incorporating building materials into a room. Think bare bricks, metals, and wood incorporated with recyclable metals/materials.
Nautical décor can be defined by the natural cool colors associated with the ocean and brighter shades inspired by the sea and the vessels we use to navigate it. If you are a beach person, this design helps you keep the beach near you. This very age-old style adds coolness to your space.
If you are a minimalist or strongly believe in the beauty of simplicity, Scandinavian design may be for you. During the early 20th century, this aesthetic began to embody and merge a sense of functionality and minimalism that is still favored today.
[Urban] Modern design is characterized by a monochromatic color palette, clean lines, natural materials, and incorporates natural light. This style, which was an aesthetic movement in the early to mid 20th century, also often includes architectural design features such as exposed beams and unfinished surfaces.
One of our personal favorites, the Bohemian design style is best defined as a more artistic form of living. Lacking structure, this style opts for more carefree layers of texture, bright/bold colors and unorthodox patterns.
For those who value practicality and comfort, the farmhouse design may be the one to consider. We simply mix modern furniture with rustic décor for the perfect blend of the traditional country look with the more minimal contemporary design. Characterized by vintage pieces, reclaimed wood, pottery, and metals, this look is becoming more popular with our clients.
"Less is more" with this uncluttered and clean design style. Minimalism is about avoiding the unnecessary and finding elegance in simplicity and utility. Embrace the most of fewer things with a monochromatic palette, clean lines and pops of color.
