#FridayFavorites: Interior Design Styles – Bohemian

One interior design style that has been trending for quite sometime now is bohemian. It’s very fresh, fun, and creative. Bohemian style can really showcase personality in a home and can really bring some originality to a space. It’s usually tied to people who live very artistic and unconventional lives, but it’s really caught on as a design trend in the industry and has taken a huge spin on fashion as well.

Bohemian was a huge it in the 60s, but as time has gone on, we as designers and casual homeowners have put our own twist on it. We keep updating it to our liking, even reconstructing the name to “boho-chic” for some. So how do you get this look from the ground up? We’ll show you!

The flooring should have a very rustic sanded wood. A large part of this design style is layering colorful rugs, and this look tends to have the best effect on this type of wood. We also suggest white or light colored paint on the walls, because the furniture and decor tends to bring a lot of color to the room. Try to keep a simplistic foundation so you can show off individuality with a fun, bright couch or a busy tapestry on the wall.

Here, you can see your options are really pretty endless. For fabrics, you can choose loud patterns or muted (but still colorful) solids, and when it comes to tables, you can use an antique look or more modern wood patterns.

Decor

Get creative! Show off your artistry with your decor items! Drape a cool, unique throw over your accent chair. Pick a vibrant decorative tray for your coffee table or kitchen island. Create an unparalleled vignette with etched skulls, ombre vases, and natural outdoor items. Just have fun with your home decor and make it your own!

#FridayFavorites: Interior Design Styles – Traditional

So many homeowners love that traditional style. Some people try and say it’s out of style, though. We’re going to show you that keeping a traditional style in your home is definitely not out of style. It’s all about what you as the homeowner wants to see every day, so make sure you absolutely love everything you pick out! Here’s how, from foundation to decor, to make your traditional style dreams come true…

When looking for flooring, stick with hardwood options. Darker woods tend to have a classier look to them. For all around the house, feel free to go crazy with crown molding. The molding design on the cabinets and drawers screams traditional in a gorgeous way that gives the kitchen a personality.

You notice immediately that it’s mainly neutrals, but that’s not always the case. Although choosing bright furniture will be a little harder to coordinate into this design style, you still want to make sure your personality shines through your home. When it comes to finishes, try to keep going with dark woods and not too shiny metals. Keep in mind rusted metals always tend to add a really unique look to traditional pieces.

Decor

Add in your style while decorating each room! Add in your favorite colors, metals, and textures. This design style can be a little hard when trying to fit in a funky statement piece, but it flows pretty easy when it comes to decor. You don’t have to go above and beyond, but don’t be afraid to break out of the all-neutral color palette and all dark wood finishes.

Give the traditional interior design style a personal twist, and like we always say, let your personality shine through your home’s design!
