Interior Design Styles

When you first set off to decorate your home, it may be hard to define what style suits you the best.  There are so many different Interior Design styles to choose from!  Below are some examples of my favorite styles:


French Country interior design uses contrasting textures, colors and design; blending pale pieces against dark, oversized mirrors along with delicate classically shaped furniture or traditional furniture with bold outlines.  Below is a typical dining room using a simple rustic table with delicately carved chairs.  This style is similar to Shabby Chic

This classical style uses elements specific to the historical period of your choice. 
I personally love the use of rich colors and dark wood furnishings along
with the four-poster beds and Hepplewhite tables.


First Developed in the 1800's the Rustic style is for the outdoorsman in all of us.
It consists of handcrafted furniture employing tree trunks, twigs and logs to emphasize
nature.  Charmingly simple and ultimately rugged neutral colors with earthly accents.
Elements include, ceiling beams, stone walls and tiled floors.



Shabby Chic emphasizes aged and distressed furnishings, vintage
accessories, time-worn linen fabrics, soft pastel colors and subtle earth tones.
It's a cottage inspired style that is soft, feminine and romantic.

Fine craftsmanship define this style that began in the beginning
of the 20th century.  Basic furniture with rich tones and coarse fabrics.
It's a simple design but very warm and welcoming.
