 We have chosen 5 popular styles that show off your personality and help you decide a style that would work for you:

  1. Nordic

In recent years, this style has become very popular. In fact it is probably the decorative trend that has achieved the most followers. Originally found in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark, where sunny days are scarce for much of the year, this style focused on a solution to the lack of light. The answer – light colors and elements related to nature.

The color palette is very well defined by whites, grays, beiges and muted tones, and nuanced by soft contrasts. Forests and mountains are the main inspiration, which is why we observe that in most cases there are wooden furniture or elements in the middle of light gray walls.

For them, liquid porcelain floors or polished concrete walls would be very useful to recreate this trend. With the seamlessness of microcement flooring, one can recreate the simplicity and naturalness found in Nordic environments. They also combine perfectly with the typical wood of this style giving a feel of longevity and modernity.

In addition to the wood and gray colors, the furniture stands out for its simplicity and straight lines that give a distinctive touch to the space. In the rest of the decoration, green plants and flower patterns predominate, although lately the use of geometric figures such as squares and vertical lines is more common.

  1. Scandinavian

Very similar to the Nordic style is the more general Scandinavian style. It seeks to bring light into homes in environments with little sun, hence the preference for light tones on the walls.

The distinctive feature of this style is its clear, open spaces that evoke a similarity to minimalism. The objective of the Scandinavian style is to convey peace, simplicity and tranquility. In this view, white is a dominate coloring compared to the gray of the Nordic trend. The ceiling, floor, walls and furniture are usually in the same color or very similar tones.

Furniture and decorative elements usually have light wood colors such as beige and gray, in combination with metals, or shades of stones and natural fibers. You could cover your floors with cement giving that gray touch of this style. Throw some thick wool rugs on the floor for winter warmth. For your walls and ceilings, you can use the same color or choose a different color to add height or create comfort. Vintage-style furniture looks great in this decoration as do vintage textiles.

  1. Minimalist

“Less is More” is the defining premise this decorative trend. It is indicative of the desire to simplify as much as possible and dispense with elements that are not essential. Originally from the United States in the 1960s, this style is perfect for those who feel comfortable in simple and serene spaces. To create this look, for fewer pieces of furniture and superfluous ornamentation. Choose pieces with straight lines or shapes. Once the needed items are arranged, the ultimate looks manages to create a style that opts for environments in which warmth and beauty are distilled.

If order is something that governs your life, minimalism is for you. In this pattern, the better option is to go for contrasting elements – take a liquid porcelain floor in gray or cream and pair it with dark, glossy wood or black furniture that give a feeling of opulence. Additionally, smooth, glass or ebony-like surfaces predominate.

On the other hand, one can flip the ideas, and use dark gray for the floors to make brightly colored furniture pop in the space. Whatever you choose, the minimalist style is more than meets the eye. Where some might think it’s a cold interior, minimalists see an elegant space.

  1. Industrial

Also known as urban, it is inspired by a warehouse or lofts in major cities. Its origin dates back to the 1950s in New York, when artists began to settle in abandoned factories and warehouses in search of space and light to work. Compared to other buildings, in the industrial style, iron, wood, cement, concrete and other building materials are shown without masking. It was though the space itself inspired people to be more creative.

Today’s interior designers are inclined towards these elements in the decoration that proudly show the construction materials that others try to hide. Some key elements of the industrial style include high ceilings, old wood and hanging metal lamps, with little furniture.

When choosing furniture, look for items made of metal or iron. If there a little rust is on them, it adds to the style, and not distract. Untreated woods and veneers are also used. Add one or two decorative pieces such as paintings or photographs to add a touch of color.

Gray is one of the favorites for this style. To counteract cold or dark tones, a large amount of natural light is necessary. One way to do this quickly, is to use liquid porcelain or polished concrete for walls, floors and even furniture.

  1. Art Deco

One of the most important trends in interior design of the 20th century is Art Deco. This style is a symbol of glamor and sophistication, inspired by the Twenties.

Like many of the other styles in the article, geometric lines, rectilinear shapes, and monochrome palette. When choosing a color, think of the color and its shades. The key is in the contrast between light and dark or bright colors, such as red, blue or yellow.

Elements like geometric prints in bright colors are never lacking, resulting in ornate, modern spaces that evoke extravagant glamour.
