Home Decor Styles. so we’re talking about the basics I would have to say when most common basic questions that I get is what style am i so we’ve got to be a good idea to give you a basic question and decorating styles now the reason.
I haven’t talked too much about this in the past is that today it seems like most people have developed a style their own not really a text book style like the ones we’re gonna show you one in my book your style is better because on has a history in their stories behind the items and some maybe family heirlooms and all put together they create a home that is comforting familiar and just right for you so don’t worry so much about what style you are well once you getting ready to redo everything you want to make a whole new new cohesive statement which is exactly what sticking the one style will do for you alright one with a look at a couple the basic popular styles all right we’re going to start with traditional it’s a good place to start because it’s easy to understand about everything classic like classic themes collars and all the classic furniture styles you heard over the years you know from their styles like the Queen Anne with insert a curved legs they’re called Cabrio legs tradition is all about detail in ornamentation so let’s take a look at our traditional grouping a back here we have a Queen Anne style wingback chair with those short Cabrio legs inside wings and that’s what gives it its name traditional style area rug of course displays.
What is your decorating style and how to you find the one for your home.
That center medallion which is very common and like traditional furniture it has curved lines and lotsa detailee these traditional pillows habits or to seem to be a bit oven Eastern influence to them but I like their collar with what I’ve selected they’re made out a velvet which again is a very traditional fabric for the wall mirror and oval very traditional and a pretty floor lamp is that graceful curve in the traditional style and shade and some other refined detail you see like in the finial the swing arm along with that added tabletop so basically a combination of traditional elements will create a very classic and timeless look all cut in stark contrast to traditional ways contemporary style now or traditional styles have been around for hundreds of years contemporary furnishings have been around since about the nineteen forties now contemporary styles all about organic and geometric lines in shape so let’s look at our contemporary share now very clean lines basic rectangle was but put together to create a seat back in arms then just toss in a couple bold color polos on that neutral chair to bring in a punch of color now the pillows I think I just like art themselves now on the wall the contemporary mere uses geometric shapes circles to create a circular frame and its finished in a very nice glowing brushed brass now this very linear floor lamp with rounded rectangular shades fishes the contemporary look so basically with contemporary style.
And I know you’ve heard this before less is more all right let’s take a real quick look at transitional now this is a style that’s very popular today because I like somewhere between traditional and contemporary which seems like a tough thing to do but basically the left detailed traditional and softer more detailed contemporary well I can’t embrace style it uses neutrals and textures to the finish look is about comfort and practicality more relaxed probably comment today because it’s for busy active families now noticed that the chair has cleaner lines than the traditional wingback yet those soft curves that many of the straight line contemporary styles don’t have the rug is neutral but more curvilinear and detailed like traditional simple pillow has some detail but doesn’t go overboard in the mir’s in a nice wood but plain in casual less curves are seen lighting pieces as well in our transitional room see some clean line the occasional tables but then the softer on arms and back up the upholstery warms the room so that’s a lot to absorb for now and next time I think we’ll go over style and we’ll talk about French country which is very inviting colorful and Fulham old-world details mission style which emphasizes natural materials especially would and then americana which is a broad topic that we could probably cover myself so it’s very very now they’re all very interesting in the information is certain to expand your knowledge I’ve interior design and decorative style it certainly has my more information on decorative stuff is available on our site
