Rustic Interior Designs style is beautifully unrefined and cozy.  If you like to for your home to be a “getaway” from your work and the rest of the world, this could be the perfect style for you.  Mountains and lake style  are the two most places for rustic design. Many of these lodge style homes have stone fireplaces, high beamed ceilings, and use lots of wood, stone, metal and leather.

After seeing my examples and interviewing me, Cindy Farmer decided her design style is Bohemian.  Many people who are always drawn to bright colors, furniture, art or accessories that make your heart sing, then like,  Cindy,  you do not know what to call your  interior design style. Bohemian style allows you to express your personality. It is full of life, culture and items from all over the world. There is lots of bright colors, especially jewel tones with mix of different patterns. Fringe, glass beads, burlap and second hand furniture contribute to this Mix and Match style.

Modern and contemporary designs are not exactly the same  but are usually grouped into the same style. If you prefer sleek, spacious and simple designs, then you should decorate your home in Modern- Contemporary Interior Design style.  Focus is on function. No clutter, neutral colors, chrome, glass, concrete and geometric fabrics are emphasized in modern and contemporary homes.  Accessories are considered more an art piece than just an attractive item sitting on a table or shelf.  All lines whether it be furniture, rugs, accessories are straight and geometric. Many times even table wear is straight lined.  Example: square plates.
