We are loving this colorful living room from West Elm, with its abstract elements.

Fans of the industrial chic design style are all about a minimalist look with lots of visual texture from the materials. Often comprised of a cool color palette, industrial designs are contemporary and urban, but can still be very comfortable and livable. Exposed materials, such as brick walls, are great backdrops for your industrial design. The pieces from Pottery Barn seen above fit in with this style by balancing the linear metal elements in the side tables, along with upholstered pieces that are comfortable and soft, but still structured. If this style appeals to you, you are yearning for that idealized city living lifestyle. And with these tips, it’s right at your fingertips!

One trend that you can see almost anywhere recently is the Modern Farmhouse home decor style. There are many ways to encapsulate this look, but it most often includes rustic finishes, paired with polished, classic and comfortable pieces. Some key rustic finishes you’ll find are things like wood paneled walls, brick with a whitewashed finish and barn doors with exposed metal tracks. This look from Pottery Barn is a chic and elegant version of the modern farmhouse style. The rustic barn doors are in play, but with a understated black inset panel. Paired with a luxurious leather sofa, it elevates the otherwise white and rustic room up a notch or two. If this style appeals to your senses, you are yearning for a more balanced space. Find balance in your own home by pairing rustic elements with cozy counterpoints, like soft pillows and throws.

If you’re dream decor style has lofty intentions, then finding inspiration from the Grand estate style might be right for you. Featuring larger scale furnishings, typically in more formal fabrics, these pieces are set in a luxurious backdrop of a room that features detailed architectural elements. An ornate fireplace mantle, or some gorgeous wall panel wainscotting are typical features for this decor style. These elements blend best with classically designed furnishings; think rolled arms, cabriole legs and nailhead trims. If you’re feeling the grand estate pull, then utilizing those details in your home can help get you there. We love how this Ralph Lauren Home living room balances the heavier, large scale pieces with a lighter color palette overall, plus a more casual woven area rug to keep this formal space from feeling unusable. Time to take the reigns with your home decor style and make it grand!
