Mid – century Modern

This 1950s-1960s retro-reminiscent style is characterized by clean lines, furniture that focuses on function and form, pops of color, and intentionally placed plants. Functionality is the keyword with this style. When recreating this style you should try to keep it from looking too cluttered, instead aim for clean lines, and every ornamentation should be very intentionally placed. Try a mix of man-made and natural elements like wood and vinyl furniture or geometric metal decor and plants.

Modern Farmhouse

Think rustic, think cozy, think clean, and add just a pinch of bohemian in for good measure. This style is all about reclaimed wood, country and barn details, calming colors like dark blue, and natural elements like plants. It’s easy to keep it light-hearted with large typographical pictures to boost your mood and build inspiration. Because this is a modern take on a farmhouse, your style will incorporate everything you need for modern convenience and comfort.

Bohemian

If you’re looking for an expressive, cozy space, this look is perfect for you. Bohemian looks are usually colorful and pull from a variety of creative and natural elements. Natural materials like wicker furniture, reclaimed wood, and statement plants like Monstera bring nature right inside. Colorful couches or rugs can be used to contrast white walls. Eclectic pictures and tapestries are often incorporated to brighten up the space.

If you love the structure of bohemian designs but prefer a cleaner look, swap out the colorful elements for white and play up the plants and natural wood elements. Add soft lighting and fuzzy white rugs for warmth and create a calm, clean, and natural environment.

Rustic

Similar to farmhouse, this style uses a lot of reclaimed wood and vintage decor but is built around natural elements. The closer you can make your environment reflect nature while still maintaining a cozy and inviting feel, the closer you are to capturing this style. Wood furniture that emphasizes the natural wood grain and grooves helps tie the natural elements together. Pair it with white couches, green accent pillows or blankets, and warm lighting to make your space feel cozy. Further accentuate the natural elements with fur rugs, deer antlers, or decorative pine cones.
