The Beginner’s Guide to Interior Design Styles by Commune

Welcome to the exciting world of home décor! As a first-time homebuyer, you’re faced with countless decisions about how to turn your new house into a home. One of the first and most crucial decisions involves choosing an interior design style that reflects your personality and fits your lifestyle. To help you navigate this creative endeavor, we’ve compiled an overview of popular interior design styles along with tips on how to incorporate pieces from Commune Lifestyle to achieve the look you desire.

1. Scandinavian

Characterized by simplicity, minimalism, and functionality, Scandinavian design emphasizes clean lines and light, airy colors. This style is perfect for those who appreciate a clutter-free and harmonious space. To achieve this look, opt for Commune’s Aspen Sofa with its sleek lines and subtle color. Pair it with our Oliver Coffee Table for a touch of natural wood, a hallmark of Scandinavian aesthetics.

2. Minimalist

Minimalism takes the concept of “less is more” to heart, focusing on the idea of reducing form and color to essentials. This style is great for those who seek tranquility and simplicity in their living environment. The Geo Armchair in a neutral color from Commune is an ideal choice, providing both comfort and a statement of understated elegance. Complement it with simple, functional pieces like the Streamline Bookshelf for storage that doesn’t overwhelm the space.

3. Modern

Modern design celebrates natural materials, neutral or earthy colors, and the elimination of unnecessary detailing. It’s a great choice for those who love sleek, spacious interiors with a focus on strong lines and a clean, uncluttered look. The Luna Media Console is a perfect fit for a modern living room, with its fine craftsmanship and smooth finishes. Pair it with the Eclipse Dining Table to maintain a cohesive, contemporary aesthetic.

4. Industrial

Industrial style is often inspired by an urban loft or warehouse aesthetic; it’s about proudly displaying the building materials that many try to conceal. It incorporates elements like exposed steel, distressed wooden pieces, and exposed piping. For an industrial vibe, choose the Rivet Sideboard, which features metal elements and a rustic finish. Add the Ironcast Coffee Table for its utilitarian appeal and robust character.

5. Bohemian (Boho)

Bohemian style is known for its vibrant colors and eclectic mix of patterns and textures. It’s ideal for those who enjoy a carefree and adventurous aesthetic. The Ziggy Armchair with colorful cushions can set the foundation for a boho living room. Combine it with the Mosaic Rug to add layers of colors and patterns, enhancing the free-spirited feel of the space.

Choosing the right interior design style can transform your house into a personalized retreat where every corner reflects your identity and aspirations.
