When it comes to injecting your personal style into a space, the first thing you need to clearly determine is your decorating style. Creating a cohesive look and feel throughout your home, all renovating and decorating decisions will always come back to your decorating style and lifestyle requirements.
Before we dive a little deeper into decorating styles, it’s important to understand that you don’t have to stick to one strict style So, keep an open mind, feel free to merge styles together, or select different styles for separate areas of your home – as it all comes back to how you want to feel in each space.
When it comes to decorating styles, in our experience there’s five key ones that our customers continually come back to: contemporary, traditional, Scandinavian, coastal and industrial.
This warm and inviting decorating style takes inspiration from the past, with perfectly placed elements that also feel familiar and comforting.
From antique pieces and floral-prints to refined cabinetry and regal tones, traditional decorating has a wide scope to work within, so no matter what elements you decide to run with, you’ll always make people feel instantly at home.
A refreshing and relaxing style that draws its inspiration from the sand, sky and sea of your favourite coastal town, this decorating style breathes summer all year long.
While you may want to incorporate coastal features throughout your home, such as an old surfboard, beachside prints or seashells. This design is more about taking its colour palette from your favourite coastal town (whether that be the Amalfi Coast, Byron Bay or anything in-between), to provide a carefree environment that is all about easy living.
