1. “Transitional” style

In the original, the style is called transitional, that is, “temporary, intermediate, transit.” It would seem, what does this interpretation have in common with the interior?

The direction combines modern style and traditions: classic lines are preserved, but modern colors and accessories are selected. As a rule, rooms in this style are “immersed” in soft upholstery, pillows and textiles.

The color palette is minimalistic, more relevant to modern interiors and should create an atmosphere of peace. Therefore, often designers choose gray-brown, flesh, beige, vanilla color.

The mix of classics and modernity extends to accessories. There can be no “random” decor in the room – only perfectly matched and emphasizing calm and fluidity.

Furniture should maintain this balance of styles. Smooth curves, but at the same time large sizes.

3 Sea style

Marine style is not very popular in the design of ordinary city apartments, and completely undeservedly. The marine interior is not only about ropes and white and blue stripes – it is much more interesting.

White and blue (as well as its shades), of course, dominate, but the designer’s task is to make this color combination harmonious and not boring. Natural wood will definitely find its place in the interior. And antiques and antique decor will add charm to the “marine” room.

four Wabi Sabi

From the name it becomes clear that the style was born in Japan. The interiors of this country are always minimalistic, beige, gray, milky colors predominate, and dark wood is more often used in furniture.

Lighting is of great importance for creating a wabi-sabi interior, so it is recommended to choose one that emphasizes the textures and expressiveness of interior items.

7 Hygge

Hygge style is the absolute hit of the season. Born in Denmark, where it is cold and uncomfortable for most of the year, hygge has become the “assistant” of the northern inhabitants in the embodiment of the necessary comfort. In order to create the right atmosphere, you need to follow 4 simple rules.

  1. Collect little things that are dear to your heart. These can be an old grandmother’s box, a blanket bought with a loved one and reminiscent of warm evenings, old photographs that will take their rightful place in the frame.
  2. Lots of candles. The hygge style embodied the Danish love for fiery light sources. It is believed that one inhabitant of this country accounts for up to 6 kg of wax. Candles also create soft shadows that are the best way to create coziness.
  3. More light. The above candles are not about lighting, but about creating an atmosphere. Hygge lighting is also important. A variety of sconces, lamps, lamps look very appropriate in such an interior. .
  4. Lots of furniture. The hygge style was created for families and large friendly companies, which means that it is necessary to provide a place where to accommodate everyone who wants to join cozy gatherings.

5 Characteristics of Mid-Century Style

  1. Free space connection. In the 50s of the last century, the idea of ​​​​expanding space was not new, but it acquired a special meaning. Then for the first time they began to attach an attic to the room, put panoramic windows in order to create the impression of being close to nature.
  2. Furniture in such an interior more often resembled the Art Nouveau style.
  3. Bright walls. Most often, wallpapers with patterns and colors gravitating towards the colors of the earth were chosen – this was associated with security and the affirmation of life.
  4. Special lamps. They can be compared with art objects, they performed the role of decoration rather than their direct function.
  5. Appliances and electrical appliances – after the war, new items of equipment began to appear in the West: toasters, vacuum cleaners, music players.

9 Backstage style

The concept of backstage does not need to be translated. This word has already entered the Russian language, in the dictionary we will find the meaning of “inside out”, “behind the scenes”. An inside-out interior is also possible – it will deliberately reveal functional and technical details, as if behind the scenes of a theater or in a restaurant kitchen. For example, on the project below, the designer deliberately left light wiring.
