July 23, 2020
When beginning to decorate a home, it can be a challenge to find your own style. With Pinterest, there are so many ideas and decorating trends out there. It can be hard to pull together a cohesive look. With more information on different styles, it can be easier to choose which one works best for home and personal style. In this article, we will look at two popular decors, modern and farmhouse, and the elements that go into creating them.
When creating a modern space, you should focus on open-concept layouts and creating clean lines throughout the area. The straight lines should be mirrored in the furniture as well. To add interest, you can use geometric shapes or pops of primary colors such as red, yellow, or blue.
Besides clean lines, this style also focuses on industrial elements such as concrete and glass with steel/metal finishes. Even with these elements, the design focuses on minimalism and does not feature a lot of clutter. It focuses on pieces that draw attention, such as a focal art piece or feature wall. You can also add interest and character to space by utilizing geometric shapes.
Farmhouse style features ship lapped walls, natural paints colors such as grey, tan and white, and a mix of old and new furniture. With this style, it features chalk painted furniture. To create a cohesive look, you can use the same color throughout the space and home. Incorporating older furniture or distressed furniture can add a homey element to the design.
