This bedroom design proves that you don’t need to have lots of greenery to get the indoor/outdoor vibe. By pairing warm greys with a statement plant, you can still achieve a beautiful, outdoorsy room. Plus, you’ll only have to remember to water the one plant.

Woods, whites and greens are a great combination and it’s a look that is easy to achieve.

2. Cosy country

You can bring a cosy country style to your home even if you don’t live in the countryside. While there are lots on interpretations of country interior design styles, often it includes florals, smaller-scale prints, vintage accessories and painted furniture.

Let’s take a look at some country interior design ideas.

How cosy does this little country set-up look? The woods and wicker give it a warm vibe and blankets in rustic colours are a great addition to any country look. It helps to have a cute dog in the picture too!

How adorable is the country style bedroom? The wooden photo frame with the image of the hares is a great touch. Hares, foxes, ducks, and other country animals will definitely help to give your home a country look.

3. Traditional

A traditional style may sound dull or predictable, but that does not have to be the case. Traditional homes usually feature furnishings that match, symmetry, antiques and a variety of textures to create a space that just goes together.

Consistency is key and with a traditional design, you’ll be able to create a calm and orderly space. Let’s get inspired!

This is a lovely example of a traditional hallway. The dark rug gives the space depth and won’t show up dirt that’s brought in on shoes and pets. There’s a range of pictures on the walls that also add colour and the antique side table really completes the traditional look.

This bedroom does an excellent job of looking modern and traditional at the same time. The patterned rug and matching pillows are doing a lot of the work here. They look great with the wooden floor and bedside tables too.

If you want to create a traditional look in your dining room, go for an antique (or antique-looking) table. You can either pair that with matching chairs or update the look with more modern chairs like those in this photo.

4. Modern

Modern is a pretty broad term but it generally applies to homes that have a simple colour palette with clean lines. You’ll often see these paired with metals glass and steel for that sleek, modern look.

Here are some examples of modern decor that you might like.

If you need your room to fulfil many functions, this is a great example of how to create a style that works throughout. It looks modern and polished and you could easily add a splash of colour with a few cushions, a throw and home accessories.

This modern dining room looks beautiful with lots of gold accents paired with neutral colours. The glass table makes the room appear more spacious, but be prepared to polish regularly if you opt for this kind of look!

5. Bold and bright

If your the kind of person that just loves bright colours, then you’ll probably want a bold and bright home too! Vivid colours represent excitement, energy and positivity and they are a great way to refresh any space in your home and they make a big statement too.

If you’re feeling bold, let’s take a look at what you can do in your home.

Just looking at all of the bold and bright colours in this bedroom is enough to make you feel happy. While it may not create the most relaxing environment, you can’t deny that it is full of personality. It’s also a great example of how you can use different prints and colours to create a cohesive look.

This bathroom shows that you don’t have to get the neon paint out to achieve a bold and bright look. Using accessories is a great way to add a splash of colour and if you want to change the style later, it’s easy to do so.

The bold a bright look in this gorgeous living room is centred around the orange sofa while everything else is a bit more muted. It looks fabulous and shows a clear sense of style.

6. Minimalist

Minimalism takes the neutral colours and clean lines of modern interior design a step further. Kim Kardashian is well-known for adopting this style in her L.A. mansion. There are no excessive or flamboyant accessories, minimalism focuses more on function and simplicity.

Let’s take a look at some minimalist interior design ideas.

You can stay true to a minimalist design and still have a bit more going on as this image shows. It sticks with light colours but introduces greenery which brings the room to life.

7. Industrial

The industrial interior design style draws inspiration from warehouses and urban loft spaces. You may see exposed brickwork, unfinished elements and raw-looking materials.

It can be quite a cool look with neutral colours, woods and metals. Let’s look at some examples.

The choice of table and chairs in this dining area helps to create an industrial look as the materials have a raw look. Light fittings are also a great way to bring an industrial vibe to any space and this one is a great example. Cats are not a requirement, although they are super-cute!

Here you can see an example of how exposed brick creates an industrial look. You can easily create this with wallpaper if your home doesn’t have brick features already.

While this room isn’t completely industrial-looking, it’s a great example of how you can use a large mirror to replicate the window of an industrial building.

8. Scandinavian

Scandinavian interior design reflects the simplicity of life in Nordic countries. The furniture is usually functional and understated but with some sculptural influence. IKEA is the perfect place to see some great examples of Scandinavian design.

This living room looks lovely and cosy while sticking with a relatively simple design. The neutral colours and woods make it really inviting, but beware of pale sofas, you wouldn’t want to slop your coffee down that!

This bedroom is light and bright with plenty of Scandinavian draw space. The woollen throw adds some cosiness and the simple pictures on the wall are a great addition too.

This office space is really functional and it looks great. Floating wall shelving is an excellent way to create more storage space and adding a statement wallpaper to one wall looks effective.

  1. I feel like I’m still learning my exact style. It a mix between Country, Modern, Traditional, and bringing in the natural elements into a space. I know I’m not bold and colorful, which I love when others decorate that way but I feel like I don’t have to the touch to do it right! lol

  2. I’m so happy to have stumbled across this. I bought a house recently and have been feeling kind of paralyzed by indecision. This post got the wheels spinning again. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Beautiful photos! I’m in love with the hanging flowers above the dining table

  5. At first, i was into the greenery look, but then I wanted to mix it with the modern look, but then I saw the minimalistic look and fell in love! I love the cleanness of the design, it makes it feel like you’re living in art. But I would definitely incorporate some more greenness to the look for sure xxx

  6. You’ve got some great ideas here & sorry I can’t pin them …

  7. Yes to bringing the outside in! I love the green and white combo 🙂
