Classical, contemporary and modern styles and the products for each

 

Designing your home but unsure of what design style to follow? Did you know that sticking to one aesthetic is regarded by professionals as an amateur design hack to creating a home space? Mixing styles is an art on its own and we will show you how to blend styles to create your dream living room.

CONTEMPORARY – FUSION

Contemporary design uses mostly solid colours with metallic accents and geometrical forms whereas the bohemian fusion aesthetic relies on colour, pattern and organic forms. A way to blend these two styles would be to keep the larger pieces in the room contemporary and accent these pieces with more bohemian decor- such as a patterned armchair, colourful cushions and planters. A great way to tie in these styles in a room is by using art as a catalyst in the space.

MID-CENTURY – MINIMALIST

A room with a textured wall, an artwork, a sofa, a couple of side tables and two planters

If you are feeling the retro vibe but sometimes find it over powering, you may want to take a minimalistic approach to the mid-century modern style. The objective of this style is to achieve a clutter free yet bold aesthetic. To achieve this style, pick a retro wallpaper and pair it with mid-century style furniture in a similar colour palette to bind the room together.

MODERN – CLASSICAL

Classical style homes are timeless; everything about the symmetry, colours and texture spells elegance. But with the large changes in our lifestyle post the pandemic, you might want to add a modern twist to a classical style so it might suit our new age needs and also keep the space low maintenance. A modern classical style retains the functionality of modern furniture while still following the aesthetic of the classical style.
