Country

Muted colors and distressed furniture are hallmarks of Country style. This look is similar to Farmhouse, but less industrial. Vintage floral fabrics and creamy colors are all you need to create a Country style.

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.

Traditional

Traditional design is usually heralded by rich wood tones and a cozy atmosphere. Luxuriously padded sofas meet sturdy furniture pieces in classic styles, such as Queen Anne.

Eclectic

Just like the name implies, this style is developed by combining pieces from several different periods and design themes. An eclectic style is best for people who find themselves drawn to several different, but complimentary design types.
