What's your design style?
In a classic sense, design styles can be categorized within a few major genres: Traditional/Classic, Modern, Contemporary, and Country. There are many sub-genres and interpretations within each, influenced by historical and geographical elements. Most people will gravitate toward one particular genre; take a look at the examples and descriptions below and see what catches your eye. The possibilities for design are limitless, making every space truly unique. I often bring subtle elements of more than one style to my designs because, when thoughtfully composed with proper scale, balance, and proportion, they are more interesting and have more depth than a room that is singular in style.
Traditional or Classic
Contains some degree of formality, often uses symmetry and verticality, has a good balance of soft and hard elements. Architectural embelishments such as moldings and windows are integral to the look. Has its roots in classical Grecian design, employs geometry and ornamentation. Some examples of sub-genres include British Colonial, Romanesque,
Is an evolving style as it refers to designs that are currently fashionable. Some examples of current contemporary styles are Transitional, Mediterranean, and Soft Modern. Contemporary designs are often a 'softened' version of a major genre; Transitional is traditional with a more fluid, geometrized ornamentation and Soft Modern has references to the sharp geometry of Bauhaus or Mid-Century Modern but with softened lines and often natural themes .
