At Drees, we understand the importance of making the perfect selections for your dream home, so we’ve rounded up seven home design styles that are sure to inspire.

1 | Bohemian

Global and free-spirited, bohemian design often features neutral walls with pops of color for a happy aesthetic. Lovers of the boho vibe will also integrate Mediterranean tile patterns on floors or backsplashes.

Accent walls in an earthy color like rust or yellow are popular with this design style, and indigo and green kitchens are emerging as a hot boho trend. Both lighter and deeper shades will be popping up in kitchens everywhere in the coming year.

For décor, think house plants along with woven or rattan décor to really bring this style together.

2 | Contemporary

A contemporary style of decorating is defined by simplicity, subtle sophistication and clean lines. For a contemporary look in the home, focus your interior design so that it showcases the space rather than things.

Paint walls in a basic neutral, black or white, to achieve a wonderful backdrop for bold accessories. Or, select bright, bold paint and use neutral colors for your décor. High ceilings, bare windows and strong visible lines are quintessential components of contemporary design.

3 | Rustic

Rustic style means staying as close to nature as possible. This home design is defined by using organic elements – think wood, stone and natural fabrics – to create a relaxing environment. Rustic design focuses on warmth, comfort and embracing the beauty of natural elements.

Hardwood floors, iron accents and warm color palettes bring this look together. Add in hearty rugs and woven blankets to amp up the complexity.

4 | Modern Coastal

This Nantucket-inspired style is simple, light and airy with a color scheme that reflects the ocean and sky. If you’re going for a modern coastal vibe, include crisp whites, deep blues and neutral hues.

Inspired by organic colors and textures of nature, modern coastal decor might include light woods, woven baskets, natural fiber rugs and easy-care fabrics like cotton and linen. Consider deep blue-gray cabinetry with patterned white tiles, dark wood floors and weathered wood bar stools that create a coastal feel.

5 | Mid-Century Modern

Although this style grew out of the early 20th century Modernism movement, the simplicity of mid-century modern design put this style in high demand today.

Mid-century modern design is defined by simple forms, an emphasis on function and connection to nature. Warm wood tones paired with pops of color create an inviting palette that are ideal for everyday simple living.

6 | Modern Farmhouse

Modern farmhouse is a refined, yet relaxed style with modern features, rustic elements and industrial-inspired accents. To achieve this style, start with a neutral palette and add finishes with a contemporary, rustic edge.

Consider simple Shaker cabinets, copper or black light fixtures, board & batten, wood beams or a-frame architecture.

7 | Sophisticated Traditional

Sophisticated traditional style is timeless, calm and ornate. Soft colors and symmetrical designs are key components of this design.

Consider selecting traditional finishes such as marble, crown molding and neutral color palettes. Keep it light with simple glass light fixtures and unexpected pops of color. Also consider breaking up matching sets of furniture by injecting simple metals and mirrored accents.
