Home and Lifestyle


Designing your home can be one of the highlights of moving into a new property. Or even starting to feel differently about a home you have owned for some time. We can all get a little bored of how our surroundings look, perhaps having a strong urge to change a colour in one room, or completely change around furniture or even change the use of another room. Summer is one of those times of the year that we can all get a little frustrated with home interior decor. The sun shines brighter through the window, and something that once looked fantastic may not do in the light of day. I thought I would share with you some common interior styles that you may want to consider implementing into your home.

Modern and edgy

Do you like clean lines and white walls? Perhaps you love the look of modern furniture and a clutter-free space? Then perhaps a modern and edgy interior style is what you are looking for. Some people like to keep things neutral with only a hint of colour when it comes to accessories or styling. Other people like to incorporate metallic tones into the room. Modern and edgy interiors can work with all styles of home, and definitely will appeal to the masses. This style would work well if you were planning on selling and moving on anytime soon.

Shabby chic

Shabby chic is an interior style that hit many homes a few years ago and the look is certainly not disappearing in the near future. It is a decoration that is filled with items that appear old, but that isn’t so. A shabby chic home is filled with cottage style furniture and items that look pleasing to the eye but could have a traditional look about them. Something like the David Gundry furniture would work perfectly. Other things to consider would be a neutral colour palette once more. Lot’s of creams with a touch of floral pattern and pastel shades to add sparks of interest.


Vintage and retro

Maybe you like things that have sentimental value, or a style that could be nostalgic of years gone by. Then you may want to consider a vintage and retro interior decoration to your home. You may want to focus specifically on a decade or mix things up with bits and pieces from different eras. Websites like Pinterest are full of ideas to inspire you. You may also want to check out local sales and even eBay to find bargains of older furniture and vintage pieces. This style could work well for many different rooms in your home.

Rustic and cosy

Finally, although it may be summer you might still prefer a cosy and rustic interior decoration to your home. Something that would ignite memories of holidays in a log cabin and roaring fires on cold winter nights. A great tip for this sort of interior decoration would be to place a focus on wood. That might mean unpainted but treated wooden furniture, or even a display of wooden things such as logs strategically placed by the fire. You may also want to consider lots of soft furnishings when it comes to styling the room.

I hope these interior ideas have inspired you for when you next decide to decorate.
