With so many different interior design styles, choosing the right one for your home can be daunting. So whether it is for a quick remodel or decorating your new home from scratch, we have compiled the six most popular interior design styles and home trends so you can select one that resonates with your personal preferences:
The Scandinavian decor style evolved around the mid-20th century in the northern countries of Denmark, Sweden and Norway and has become very popular worldwide. Characterised by minimalistic and one-dimensional designs, this interior style is clean-lined, practical and welcoming. The designs oscillate between mid-century modernism, heavily influenced by industrialisation, and the contemporary sensibilities of Germany’s Bauhaus movement.
The term Japandi defines a hybrid decor style that integrates the core design principles and aesthetics of Japanese and Scandinavian interiors. For example, Japanese’ Zen,’ or the concept of fostering relaxing minimalism, merges with Scandinavian Hygge — in which spaces are punctuated with a sense of joy and calm.
Often called the eclectic or quirky style, the boho look is ubiquitous. It’s a versatile interior design style where almost anything goes. Boho embraces raw, natural materials, such as wood and rattan, complemented with inviting fabrics like cotton, mohair, and linen.
Mid-century modern decor is characterised by clean lines, gentle curves, and organic shapes. It exudes elegant simplicity and a timeless aesthetic and remains highly popular in contemporary interior design. At Alankaram, we encapsulate the essence of this design scheme with high-quality natural materials like wood, organic shapes and solid bases.
Characterised by simplicity, clean lines, and a monochromatic palette, the minimalist interior decor style uses colour as an accent and reduces clutter. It coalesces an open floor plan, lots of light, and functional furniture, emphasising the shape, colour and texture of essential elements.
Rooted in heritage, the traditional style includes silk, linen and velvet upholstery. It melds contemporary elements at times too. The furniture type is defined by carved wood, window coverings or upholstery in damask, florals, stripes and plaids with ornately detailed dark wood.
