The Most Popular Interior Design Styles

Discover the most popular interior design styles. Modern, industrial, shabby chic….and the list goes on. A great starting point for an interior design project is to learn a bit about each of the styles and how they differ from one another.

With an abundance of unique design styles, it can be difficult to decipher which style will work best for you. Some also enjoy combining elements of several styles to create their ideal look.

Modern
Modern is a broad design term that typically refers to a home with clean, crisp lines, a simple colour palette and the use of materials that can include metal, glass and steel. Modern design employs a sense of simplicity in every element, including furniture. A word that’s commonly used to describe modern style is sleek, and there is not a lot of clutter or accessories involved with a modern style.

Contemporary
Modern and contemporary are two styles frequently used interchangeably. Contemporary is different from modern because it describes design based on the here and now. The primary difference separating modern and contemporary design style is that modern is a strict interpretation of design that started in the 20th century. Contemporary on the other hand, is more fluid and can represent a sense of currency with less adherence to one particular style. For example, contemporary style may include curving lines, whereas modern design does not. You can refer to modern vs contemporary article for more information.

Mid-Century Modern
Midcentury style furniture tends to feel more open and less bulky, and is known for being ‘livable’, which translates to both comfortable and stylish. Urban areas are also the main location for the industrial aesthetic, with tons of converted lofts and newer buildings mimicking the loft-feel.

Refined Rustic
Rustic beautifully blends informal decor with classic design. Stylistically rustic houses have a more traditional feel and much more space, creating a perfect backdrop for classic pieces of furniture.

Vintage
Overstuffed furniture, textures, and vintage collections might read as slightly formal.
