The most popular interior styles
When you think about design styles at home, first of all you need to figure out what options exist and which one is suitable for your apartment. It is he who will set the tone for the whole house and make an impression on your guests.
Today we will talk about the most demanded interior styles right now. And using the example of the work of our design studio V. Concept studio, we will clearly show how different styles can change the space.
Let's start with the classic style. It is understandable to many, therefore it is always at the peak of popularity. What is its main secret? It has simple forms, but at the same time, spoils its owners with pretentiousness of decorative elements. An important fact is that the classic style can perfectly fit into a small apartment or a large house. This is definitely a huge plus. This easy game with luxury and simplicity has always been popular with people. The classics love calm, warm pastel colors, which, in combination with the gilding of some elements, create a unique range.
But there are a few rules to keep this style from going over the edge! Firstly, the brothers and sisters of the classical style are baroque and rococo - therefore it is very easy to overdo it. To prevent this from happening, you need to take into account the size of the rooms, do not forget about the "air" in the interior and show the style in certain accents, and not immediately wherever possible. Thus, you will never become hostage to bad taste, which is often found where there is no subtle understanding of the classic style in design.
Minimalism is a favorite of many. It can be compared to a white sheet, with cleanliness and order, which is often lacking in the modern world. To understand minimalism and all its beauty, you need to understand - "less is more" (less is more).
Strict geometric shapes, a minimum of decor and unnecessary elements - all this creates the right atmosphere in minimalism. There is no place for many colorful paintings or plants, this style requires the most "clean" space. All furniture should be laconic. Functionality comes first! A sofa can also function as a bed, and a folding table will save your space. Do not forget that the most popular colors in minimalism are black and white. This is a base that does not take too much attention to itself.
Scandinavian style. He has a special philosophy that came to our countries along with the trend for "hugge", which translates from Danish as "a state of happiness and comfort in simple things." This is what constitutes the skeleton of the entire Scandinavian style.
To understand how such a special type of interior is created in these countries, you need to understand the values of the inhabitants of the Scandinavian countries. The fact that it is impossible for 85% residents of Denmark, Sweden and Norway to create a cozy atmosphere without candles and soft blankets speaks volumes.
The Scandinavian style is, in many ways, a tribute to ancestors. The combination of woody materials, soft light and folklore motifs in the form of homespun rugs or embroidered pillows gives the home an incredibly warm atmosphere. This style is impossible without natural ingredients in the form of linen and cotton. Do not forget that the Scandinavians are very fond of modern types of furniture and decor, in addition, there are world-famous shops where you can buy a piece of "hygge" in your home.
Loft. He came to us several years ago and became very strong in the hearts of many people. Its strong point is slight negligence, which only at first seems so, because in order to achieve this effect, you need to try.
Concrete "as is", brick walls, raw floor - all this is the aesthetics of a loft. Of course, not many people understand it, but this is the highlight of this style. Here you can let your imagination run wild and open your mood boards. Always dreamed of a ceiling made of beams or a chandelier that simply consists of light bulbs - everything can be brought to life. We really like this style, it will never let you get bored, it will always be interesting, because contrasts play an important role. We invite you to see how our studio V.Concept has completed the Woodsy townhouse project in a loft style.
Art Deco. A style that speaks of elegance and luxury. It originated in France, and got its name from the abbreviated name of the international Paris exhibition in 1925. Later, art deco became popular with people not only in the country-trendsetter, but throughout Europe. This combination of modernity and neoclassicism cannot leave anyone indifferent.
How to create such an interior style in an apartment? If we talk about materials, then art deco requires natural materials: wood, leather, etc. Choose rich, deep shades such as blue, burgundy, emerald. Combined with wood furniture or abstract floor tiles, these colors will be a great accent in the overall picture of the house. Also, you should think about buying decorative items. Abstract panels, unusual patterns on the pillows - all this complements the art deco style. Also, it makes sense to add a little retro style (table lamps, vases, figurines), it will dilute the design and make it more detailed.
