Types of Interior Design Styles (Part 1)

The interior design style of a home should create a special “wow” moment every time you walk in the front door. Each interior design is always unique, because it represents the personality of the homeowner. Today, Ellecor Interior Design kicks off our two-part blog series as we highlight some of the most popular interior design styles.

Modern

Modern interior design consists of sleek finishes, geometric furniture, and overall simplicity. When you think of a modern home, you probably think of clean lines and simple colors, such as white, black, and grey. You will rarely find patterns or textures in modern styles; simplicity is preferred instead. This interior design style is most commonly found in upscale urban locations such as New York City or Los Angeles. Interior designers like to pair modern homes with modern interior design and artwork. 

Mid-century Modern

One of the most popular interior design styles is mid-century modern. The defining quality of this style is its use of design elements from the 1930s to 1950s with a modern twist. These home designs often incorporate subtle curves, different materials and textures, and clean lines. Mid-century Modern design offers the simple minimalism of modern design with the cozy feeling of a family home.

Minimalistic

Some people will mistake a minimalistic style with a modern style; however, they have their differences. Minimalism is really a lifestyle translated into the design of the home — complete simplicity and the elimination of anything unnecessary. All of the surfaces are clean and free of clutter. There are no unnecessary decorations, furniture pieces, or knick-knacks. A true minimalistic design is primarily white, grey and black; however, pops of vibrant color can serve to emphasize the rest of the minimalist style.

Contemporary

Contemporary design is a perfect blend of traditional and modern styles. This movement encapsulates several ideas from the mid-20th-century to the present. Contemporary designs feature monotone color palettes with browns and whites. In this popular interior design style, natural light and ambient light are key to creating the right experience.
