Minimalist Style

If you love too much stuff, then this might not be your style. The concept of minimalism is about stripping things down to their most basic form by using the bare essentials to create a simple, clean and uncluttered space. Minimalist design is characterized by simplicity, clean lines, and monochromatic pattern.

With this theme, you won’t find highly patterned furnishings, ornamentation, or decoration. The goal is to create a sense of freedom, purity, and relaxation using minimal essentials. This means instead of having highly patterned artwork.

A minimalist home will have one single piece of artwork adorning the living space or one big beautiful vase on the dining table. On colors, this trend looks to reduce forms and colors to their simplest state. This means a monochromatic color scheme consisting of beiges, greys, and whites to create a bright, airy and elegant space. 

Mid-Century Modern Style

The other trendy interior design style is the mid-century style with a modern twist. This style is set apart by vivid color, interactive dialogues with nature, and crisp lines. To create a mid-century modern theme, you must appreciate its origin. The emphasis of the interior theme is based on integrating your home with its surroundings. The color palette for this style usually floats in hues of orange-brown, green and yellow, a mixture of earthy tones and neutrals.

While these colors are reminiscent of the 1950s and 1960s design era, they are perfectly suited for today’s décor. They inarguably make the space feel fun, lively, comfortable and welcoming. 

How to Achieve a Mid-Century Modern Style

  • To update your home to a mid-century modern style, you can try the hairpin-legged tables or retro-inspired light fixtures. 
  • You can replace your normal seats with the Eames lounge chair and the ottoman. 
  • Add a natural wood credenza in that bare corner in your living room.

Scandinavian Style

 A Scandinavian design dates back to the 20th century but gained traction in the 1950s in the US and Canada. The scandi design intersects broadly with the mid-century modern design because they were heavily influenced by industrialization and the modern Germans’ Bauhaus movement. A Scandinavian design reflects both contemporary trends and traditional trades. The overall design blends fresh modern design with timely elements of craftsmanship.

To create a scandi home, you can begin investing in high-quality, practical, and multipurpose pieces. To keep up with the craftsmanship, Scandinavians have a unique and hard-earned appreciation of nature. This means honoring texture by incorporating the natural elements is key. We are talking about investing in wood furniture, using nature-inspired sculptural pieces, and natural upholstery. For example, instead of the normal rug and throw blanket, you can opt for a jute rug and throw in a linen or wool throw blanket.


A Scandinavian home uses eco-friendly and sustainable materials.
