Retro, by definition, is imitative of the past; it refers to looking back to or bringing back the past. Therefore retro interior design could mean anything from the past, though it usually refers to the decades of the 1950s, the 60s, and the 70s—anything much older than the 50s becomes vintage. Others would argue that anything at least 20 years old is retro; this would mean that the 80s could also be referred to as retro. Along a similar vein, Ronique Gibson of freshome Design & Architecture Magazine says, “Save your clothes or furniture for 20-30 years [and] the styles will come back in fashion.” Bell-bottoms, anyone? That being said, some things should stay in their respective decades: orange-brown super-shag rugs come to mind here. You had your run, now please leave it be. Read More →

Minimalism, essentially, is less; less color, less visual noise—less of everything, really. Those who strive for minimalism in their lives appreciate the simple, restful, ease of maintenance that comes with this kind of design. It is ordered and focused. There is no clutter; just the bare essentials are used. It isn't about sensory deprivation or just getting rid of stuff; Pangaea Interior Design says, “It is about achieving better design through simplicity. It is about getting the greatest impact through careful editing and restraint.” There is a place for everything and everything is in its place. Read More →

Traditional interior design is a style that celebrates elegance and comfort. It takes its inspiration from the past and creates a look that is refined, dignified, and warm. The elements in traditional design feel familiar. They evoke a sense of order, of balance. Symmetry is also very important in traditional style, and this symmetry can be found in many places: in the choice of furniture and furnishings, in how the furniture is arranged, in the selection of fabrics and patterns, etc. Read More →

Arts and Crafts interior design, sometimes also called Craftsman interior design, began as a retaliation against the ornate, overelaborate style of the Victorian era. The Victorian era's focus was that of factory-produced furnishings and decorative accents, and this style emerged as people searched for a return to the handmade rather than factory-produced. It is a style that celebrates the hand-crafted, stenciled, and hand-painted. It is natural, organic, and simple. This style's hues are warm and rich and typically make use of colors that can be found in nature, colors of stone, bark, leaves, and grasses. In contrast to other design styles, this style's rules are fairly well-defined. The design guidelines are clear and embrace utilitarian lines and a lack of curves. Read More →

The terms modern and contemporary interior design are two terms that are often confused and used interchangeably when really the two styles are different. Modern interior design refers to a specific design movement that began in the early 20th century; it follows fairly strict guidelines. Contemporary interior design is different in that it is rooted to the here and now. It is innovative, forward-looking, evolving, and changing. It is what is current, what is trending. As such, it is more fluid than modern design. But that being said, there is still some degree of structure to the design. Typically negative space is just as important, if not more important, as positive space. Less is more. Lines are clean and surfaces smooth. Accessories are minimal and those incorporated into the design are simple. Read More →

Country interior design is loved by many because of its connection to the past, its tie to ancestral family. It takes everything familiar and comfortable from old country living and uses it to create an almost nostalgic living space. The design is a mixture of family heirloom antiques with new accessories. Real family possessions make the design particularly personal and conversation-starting, but antiques found in small-town shops and antique stores will work just as well. Read More →

Eclectic interior design is a style often misunderstood and, as such, is one of the more difficult design styles to accomplish. It takes a great deal of effort, thought and creativity because nothing by itself is intrinsically eclectic. Eclectic design takes elements from different styles and time periods and puts them together in a way that is cohesive and harmonious; alone, the pieces aren't really eclectic, but together, the look and design they create is.
