Making an effort to consciously design and decorate your environment is so important for a balanced and peaceful mind, particularly when referencing your home interior. The emotions that are cultivated from a space are significant and can vary from room to room. Choosing a style that best reflects you can make enjoying your space that much easier. But what style is you?
At Eureka Street Furniture for example it is paramount that we offer a wide variety of interior design styles. From coastal Hamptons, modern country to mid-century and Bohemian, the list goes on and on, and often the best stylists opt for an eclectic mix to complement their theme. It takes some skill, but taking on a design project, even for your own home requires a little strategic thought and planning. Make sure to do your research and envision how things are actually going to look in your space. Below is a brief outline of the current interior design styles that are hot right now.
There is perhaps no other style that has made more of an impact on interior design in this moment than the Hamptons. White, bright and clean, the Hamptons represents quintessential coastal elegance. The Hamptons style is crisp yet traditional and is achieved using classic pieces placed amongst coastal elements. You can find gorgeous Hamptons white libraries, delicate console tables and beautiful Hamptons display cabinets at Eureka Street. Pair these with Nordic themed accessories like coral and beach woods, blue accents (ginger jars and cushions) and a few traditional pieces and you will achieve the perfect cool and elegant Hamptons home.
When looking to achieve a relaxed yet chic space, you should consider a modern country home. This interior design style is cultivated through the use of thick distressed timber furniture, crisp linens and earthy tones. A good rule of thumb when drawing inspiration from modern country is to use only authentic pieces, rich with character and rustic charm – nothing synthetic. Eureka Street’s Provence range, made from reclaimed elm, is ideal for this theme. Chunky refectory tables and rustic hall and coffee tables are all available at Eureka Street. Soft cream provincial sofas placed against the heavy recycled timber creates the perfect juxtaposition. Farmhouse style accessories tie this look together and barn style lighting can also add so much to modern country décor.
If you are drawn to a more contemporary minimalist style featuring straight lines, sleek blonde timber and pastel tones then perhaps you should be thinking about a Scandinavian space. This style is also linked to mid-century design because the same quality streamlined timber furniture became extremely popular between the 1930s to the 1970s. Mid-century style has now been revived and has made an important impact on furniture design.
Eureka Street’s Orleans range, made from American oak, is inspired by this look and has so many great pieces that can help create the perfect Scandinavian home. Although true Nordic style is clean a minimalistic, the space should not feel cold. Warmth is created through the use of real wood and cosy accents. Art is extremely important in a Scandinavian home so make sure your walls are not bare. It is a delicate balance of clean yet warm however when it is achieved the Scandinavian style is perfect for people who hate clutter.
Bohemian or global décor utilises a colourful and eclectic mix of furniture and textiles from around the world. Bold reds, pinks and purples are often strong themes in this style and an array of art, unique accessories and recycled timbers piece them together. You can find such pieces in Eureka Street’s Nandi/Kashmir range. Made from timber reclaimed from 200 year old Indian boats, every single piece from this collection is unique, often still with the remanence of colour from the original paint. Rich Moroccan rugs and warn vintage leather chairs and ottomans all feature heavily in the warm, fun and fascinating Bohemian space.
