Four Popular Design Styles Explained

Interior decorating involves more than adding scatter cushions and lighting to an interior space. The space that you design or decorate should follow a trend, and all elements of that space should fall within the guidelines of that trend to create a consistent, unified space.

One thing people forget to “match” is their furniture, especially built-in cupboards. However, when building or renovating your own home you have the freedom to choose the colours for your built-in cupboards and permanent furnishings to match your intended décor trends. To make things easier I have listed four popular design trends along with my product suggestions from the PG Bison product range.

Bohemian

The bohemian décor trend captures the beauty of a carefree, adventurous lifestyle. This style is built by collecting what is good from all corners of the world and bringing it back into your home. Bold patterns and vibrant colours, scatter cushions, throws and rugs are indicators of this adored boho-chic trend.

Product suggestion: PG Bison’s MelaWood SupaTexture boasts the perfect bohemian colour, Napoca.

Scandinavian

Scandinavian design introduced a minimalist look to architecture and interior design. Scandinavian décor trends feature simple, functional furniture, with light peaceful tones of grey and white. Playful accent pieces can be added, but these usually follow softer tones. Scandinavian home décor creates a harmonious and peaceful environment by avoiding clutter and bold, clashing colours.

Product suggestion: Simple Scandinavian style wants simple lines such as MelaWood Storm Grey.

Industrial

The Industrial design trend looks back to the industrial era and shows off raw steel, distressed wood and un-plastered brick work. This is a masculine, mature and rustic form of décor and is often used in bars and restaurants. Cleaner lines and elaborate ornaments or furniture pieces can be added to the mix for a bit of excitement.

Product suggestion: Formica LifeSeal worktops are now available in an attractive gloss range. Colour options like Tucana and Aquila are perfectly suited to an industrial or urban look.

Nautical

Think beach house and you will probably be imagining nautical décor. This trend is formed on colours that remind us of the sea; mainly white, shades of blue, and sand-coloured furnishings. Unfinished wood, sea shells, ropes and deep texture can be found in this sensual design trend.

Product suggestion: One feels the sea and it only makes sense that your nautical décor should use textured, realistic-feeling wood panel products. Calais from the MelaWood SupaTexture range is the ideal fit.
