Interior design, as with fashion and even art is subject to various rules and trends. One of the easiest ways to miss the target when it comes to decoration your home is through mixing styles in a non-complementary way. In this blog post we'll be taking a look at some of the most prominent styles and what items you should look for to achieve the look.
Arts & Crafts
The Arts & Crafts style of interior design dates back over 100 years, and finds its routes in a time when Victorian furniture was being mass produced and had become somewhat regimented. As the name suggests, the essence of Arts and Crafts is found in the unique, bespoke craftsmanship, with simple and organic materials at its heart.

Simplicity is the key to the minimalist approach to decoration. With a stripped back and organised style, straightforward shapes, little ornamentation and simple materials, minimalism is ideal for large open spaces with natural light and creative storage solutions.
The key to the classic look is order, symmetry and balence. Classic space centres on a focal point such as a bed or a featured fireplace. Classic design is also characterised by natural colours, natural flooring, including woiod, stone or marble and elegant fabrics.
