How Meshing Different Styles Can Form A Distinct Personality For Your Home

When you want to change the style of your home, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut. No matter how many books you read, articles you browse, something just doesn’t feel right. If you’re unable to find the style you want, all your enthusiasm to change the look of your interior fades away over time. It’s a major event in your life to fully change the style of your home because our surroundings make us who we are. The subconscious impact decor, design and decorations have on the human psyche cannot be underestimated and are very difficult to overstate. A significant challenge many face is the selection and identification of styles to pick from. There are so many different variations of the same style that it gets blurry at times. This is understandable, after all, decor has evolved over centuries and pinning a category down is almost futile. However, your saving grace may be the fact that, you can combine existing elements of several different styles to create your ideal look. Why follow the crowd when you can be the one they follow?

Modern chic

Some say it’s pompous; others say modern chic is a broad design of the most popular styles of the latter decades. However, the main narrative running through this particular design ethos is that it’s actually post-modern. Tables, intricate chairs, cabinet, drawers and sofas are all obsessed with straight lines. This is to maximise room and size as the human population grows ever larger and space becomes scarce. Large sectional sofas with crisp lines have a sense of simplicity yet an element of elegance. Modern, sleek, and an evolution of the family sofa, this style is adopted in many luxury apartments and homes.

Contemporary clash

It’s often said around home design circles that this style is loved more than the post-modern variation because it puts style above practicality. As human beings we love intricate shapes, and complex structures. The contemporary design is said to be the older, more refined cousin of modern design. Specialists, like certain home remodeling businesses, have a proven track record and astonishing portfolio of utilizing this particular design and can be the ones you turn to for help. Curvy chairs and a playful attitude with light along with a delicate juggling of different colors, this design is mostly seen in lounge areas. A curvy lounge chair, with a twist on the persall style, is a great way to relax after a long day. The smooth lines of a glass coffee table make for the ultimate coaster for your drinks when chatting with friends.

Industrial

This style is minimalist in approach; great for those wanting to restyle on a budget. It’s a style for wanting to maximise the space you have and not clutter it up with extra decor either for show or to express your personality. Exposed brick walls, thick dark wooden tables and a mix of metal fixtures such as lamps, table frames and dangling lighting exonerate function from design. Although there’s not much visual stimulation, the style is inadvertently seen as abstract by artists. Taking a little inspiration from brutalist designs, the industrial style, in fact, celebrates mundanity.

Whatever you choose, make sure it is something that meets your needs, yet fits your personal sense of what a home should be.
