3 Creative Home Styles for Inspiration

Interiors can be the most fun to design because of the endless possibility for design styles. I love clean and uncluttered spaces, but other times I’ll love rich textures and lots of patterns. The opportunities are endless. Today we’ve rounded up 3 unique home styles with inspiration from Internal Doors UK to get your creative juices flowing!

The farm-style

The home farm style is a style of home architecture prevalent from about 1870 to 1910 throughout much of rural North America. Based on the British Tudor and Queen Anne styles, home farm buildings have irregular massing, steeply pitched roofs with extended eaves supported by large decorative brackets; tall, narrow windows with colored glass in various patterns; and large front porches. The name is generally taken to mean a house that resembles the types of farm buildings found on old-time farms of the era. Some refer to this style as Prairie Style.

The farmhouse style and the home farm style are similar in that they encompass characteristic details of the rural farm dwelling. The farmhouse style, however, is defined by the predominant roof form which is gable-end roofed. The home farm style has a gambrel or side-hill roof which leaves two wall sides with exposed log siding. Sometimes this house is referred to as a Waltz house because the early ones are said to have been built by German immigrants during a dance celebration or Waltz.

The pale, neutral Scandinavian style in your home

The Scandinavian interior style is simple, pale and neutral. In its crudest form it is called Scandinavian minimalist design. (Nothing new under the sun! So we all know how this works – everyone starts out with Bauhaus, then Jugend, in a brief romance with Scandinavian interior styles before moving on to some history-free mashup crafted out of C&C California, Arne Jacobsen, and Cole & Son butterflies.) But there’s something even more interesting about this style that seems quite relevant today: it is driven by ideals of sustainable living and refined simplicity rather than a fashionable design trend or postmodern nostalgia trip.

It’s about creating spaces where you feel at home and can relax in comfort. It’s about making the home into a haven of health and well-being – a place to retreat when you need peace, quiet, and solitude. At the same time, it’s contemporary and current because each individual space can be adapted depending on your own likes and dislikes.

The bright, cozy nautical home

Textured walls, inspirational wall art, and plaid sofa stripes are some of our favorite pieces of furniture and decor that speak to the nautical nature of this small home. The perfect living room to curl up with a good book and picture window that brings in the light helps make this house truly marvelous. The first thing you’ll notice when you walk into this home is the brightness and airiness. It is clean, well-lit, and filled with rich colors that can be seen throughout the house. A nautical theme can be found in the decor as well as in many of the accessories. The color scheme is white with accents of red, blue, and gold. The textures are warm since hard surfaces have been painted or covered with interesting patterned rugs.

Modern and sophisticated decor with a twist of glamour

A look into a stunning and very stylish modern home. Solid and coordinated choices in color palettes, interesting display, sleek style, chic etc. For me, interior design is about more than just aesthetics. I believe that it’s an expression of our values and a way to live life in a way that aligns with them. It can help define who you are as an individual and what your priorities are in life. Since I am first and foremost a mom of two young kids, my decorating is very busy-free. My style is modern, fresh, clean, and simple. I also like things to be glamorous with a touch of bohemian glamour sprinkled here and there…
