Do you want to decorate your new home and are looking for thematic inspiration?

We cover 8 interior design styles common in modern homes. Practitioners actually mix different elements from several decorating styles together, but it is important to identify the essential aspects of each. Obviously there are interior design styles beyond the eight below, but we wanted to focus on the major schools that are currently in vogue.

I will keep this list updated every year - removing those that have lost popularity and adding new ones.

The most popular interior design styles


 Mid-Century Modern

The mid-1900s produced some of the most iconic pieces of modern design.

It features elaborate lines, simple silhouettes, and natural shapes. From Saarinen, Niemeyer, Eames, Noguchi, Jacobsen and beyond.

Mid-century modern masters defined innovative ways to use new materials such as molded plastic, plywood, and aluminum in industrial design.

Its pieces are versatile and can complement a myriad of styling styles.




This is a look that harkens back to the industrial age at the turn of the century.

It emphasizes the liberal use of exposed steel with corroded wooden elements, often complementing exposed brick walls. The modern form usually includes copper tone accents. In terms of the overall feel, industrial decor is often rustic and mature.




Warm, comfortable and positive.

Nautical décor (also referred to as coastal or cottage décor) reflects the spirit of a New England beach home.

This interior design style is based on white or sand, with blue as the main color.

The materialistic and distinctive décor includes the unfinished woods in its tables or chairs, as well as elegant linen fabrics for your lounge chairs and sofas.

Your options for decorative accents abound: seashells in clear jars, jute ropes, paddle oars, sailboats, nautical charts, and more!





Simple, contemporary and functional Scandinavian furniture has gentle features, playful accent colors and a balance of geometric and organic materials.

Many Scandinavian designs use Bauhaus principles and feature fluid lines, an emphasis on body proportions and a populist appeal.

The vast majority of Scandinavian interiors use white with shades of gray as the base colors.




One of the most popular interior design styles, the bohemian décor reflects the adventurous spirit of the avant-garde lifestyle.

It is characterized by rich patterns and vibrant colors, especially with red or purple undertones.

The key is to carefully present a purposeful messy look. Use textiles, pillows, and rugs to create a warm ambiance.

Look for pieces that have ethnic or Bedouin vibes. Moroccan, southwestern or tribal-inspired designs. This style loves textiles, wood, and metal.





Rustic décor is a modern take on cabin-inspired interior design.

Mostly transitional in nature with a few different traditional elements, it should impart a rural aesthetic with a French flavour.

Some dried lavender bunches and other greenery The delicate arrangement of the vases and the plant will enhance this style.

The farmhouse furniture features scattered woods and upholstered linen. In terms of color, it is similar to nautical decor with predominantly white and beige primary colors.

Orthodox rules dictate that similar colors be something like turquoise or light yellow, but I find it best to offer brighter colors.




 Urban Modern

It is one of the most popular interior design styles and urban interior design stems from the modern design lofts of major cities.

Taking civilizations from their global environment, urban talk is a mixture of various opposing and complementary features.

Simple, glamorous modern designs and exciting experimental designs collide in a distinct 21st century environment.

Larger furniture (sofas, beds, etc.) tends to be harmoniously elegant with a minimalist look.

Feel free to bring home leading modern furniture designs. Decorative elements (pillows, mirrors, tables, etc.) in urban décor often require artistic and creative expression, adding some elegant geometric designs, or vintage elements with traditional embellishment.





  • Shabby Chic

Emphasizes vintage elements and the furniture has an antique look, with the composition of the wood covered in lacquered milky paint to show signs of wear and tear.

The decorative touches of a delicate elegant décor should be soft and luxurious, often with a distressed feel, in order to bring the overall interior design to the contemporary standard.

Generously introduce linen textiles. The chic colors in this style are white, ecru and pastel, and don't be afraid to apply some vibrant colors.
