#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…

Foundation

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!

#FridayFavorites: Interior Design Styles – Contemporary

Today, we’re showing off some really great contemporary items you can place in your homes at an affordable price! Contemporary is so sleek, chic, and an amazing design style to use in your home if you entertain guests often. It has a very sophisticated look to it. This design style is often used in big city apartments and in huge demand by young professionals. We love the “cosmopolitan” vibe it gives off. Check out how we create this look…

Cool tones on the floor keep this style from having a traditional look. Wood flooring typically completes the foundation nicely, but contemporary is also very open to tile flooring as well.

Furniture

Keep everything somewhat simple. Have almost a minimalist mindset with an unusual twist. The quilted back gives that plain black office chair a tad bit of pattern. The simple bar cart is perfect against that plain wall you don’t know what to do with, and the nesting table crossing over the coffee table gives the central area of the living room a unique look.

Decor

Keep simplicity in mind when picking out decor as well. Don’t go too far to get anything extremely loud or bold. More than likely it won’t fit in with the rest of the vibe. Keeping the decor to neutrals and metals is ideal, but don’t forget to add in your own personal style with the design of the items!
