Miskelly Furniture feels the beauty of interior design is that you can decorate to your own personal style. There are no rules or a “right way” to style your home; you’re able to create a design that fits your preferences. Not to mention, it’s fun! But if you’re not quite sure what your style is, that’s okay–we’ve broken down a couple of popular decorating style to help guide you.
Contemporary – If you like a clean and fresh-looking home, a contemporary style is the way to go. If you’re looking for “less is more,” then this is your style. A contemporary home not only has clean lines and a modern style, but neutral colors are a must. Typically neutral colors and black and white are used as the backdrop for contemporary rooms. Try a toned-down background, expansive windows, open floor plans, and lots of natural light.
Eclectic - Eclectic style reflects a variety of periods and styles and is brought together through the use of color, texture, shape and finish. Eclectic style interior design is the way to go if you just can’t choose one style. An eclectic room should feature pieces with commonalities to create harmony within the design. The color schemes used can be diverse, but as a general rule, neutral colors are important both as a backdrop and for large furniture pieces. Perfect colors for this style include white, cream, gray, black, brown and tan.
Traditional - Traditional home design is the most popular style for homes. It’s inviting, warm and classic. Traditional decorating is less formal, but no less elegant. It reflects brighter color palettes and less-structured prints. Different pieces of furniture can be mixed and matched. Old and new pieces are paired side by side. This interior design style remains popular for many. Miskelly’s has a large variety to fit your “traditional” needs.
Rustic - If you like to be unique and prefer to avoid anything formal, quaint, or matchy-matchy, rustic decorating just might be your style. Rustic decorating is for decorators who enjoy unusual or one-of-a-kind pieces. Vintage styles could be categorized under a rustic design. The rustic look has become increasingly popular over the years.
