Moroccan

This exotic style is occasionally combined with more rustic styles to create a Bohemian look and the crossover does sometimes blur the lines between where Moroccan ends and Bohemian begins. True Moroccan design is moody and is characterized by deep, warm colors, muted lighting and geometric Moroccan mosaic patterns featured in places like rugs, curtains or tiles.

Minimalist

This style is derived from Japanese Interior Design, where space is regarded not as the absence of décor, but as a décor element in itself. This style combines uninteresting furniture with an excellent space, making use of natural light and large windows when available.

Arts and Crafts

The Arts and Crafts style is organic in feel and makes use of natural materials in all corners of a home. Very rarely will wood be painted in this style, but rather celebrated for natural variances in color and grain.

Classic

This style is based on classic Greek and Roman design. No modern elements are used when decorating in a Classic style and often this design works best when there are commanding areas of focus in a room, such as a fireplace or elegant staircase.
