Popular residential interior design styles Interior design is concerned with more than just creativity, style and comfort. When designing an interior space there are principles to adhere to and forms to follow. Professional interior designers understand the ‘rules’, keeping everything balanced and harmonised, and providing an effective overall aesthetic together with increased functionality for your living space. A keen eye for detail, however seemingly inconsequential is a key skill of the residential interior design. Tastes in residential interior design are constantly evolving. Periodically a brand new style may emerge, or a previously popular style may return with a new lease of life. Below is a few of the currently popular residential interior design trends: Black & white - This is a truly classic tonal combination that’s never truly been out of style. This year it’s back in full force with new combinations of natural earthy hues such as; light browns, soft pinks, light greens and greys. You do need to be careful with the right balance of colours here and it's always good advice to lean more on the lighter tones, using black judiciously. Brasses & gold - Metals have made a comeback this year in residential interior design. Brass and gold adds glamour and splendour to almost any type of home. However, it's important to use them sparingly, so as to avoid the possibility of them looking gaudy. You can use them with accessories and hardware for carefully considered detailing. Eco-friendly interiors - This is less a style, more an ethical decision. With residential interior design we have many choices to make, and we can choose responsible, ethnic materials. Eco-friendly tiles, paints, floorings and other accessories are all available for the environmentally conscious consumer. Biophilia - Biophilia is the affinity between humans and the natural world. With residential interior design it’s about bringing nature to your home. This is an ever popular idea, and ever more so with each passing year. Biophilia within residential interior design not only enhances the look and feel of your home, but can have a positive effect on your health.
