Sometimes, a couple interior desgin tips are enough to get you started

Here are just a few interior design tips to help you find your true style and how you can reflect it in your home.

Interior Design Tips Based on Style

Before you begin shopping for new furniture and decor, it's important to make sure that you measure your room and note where the entrances and windows are and how much room there should be for getting around. Once you have those measurements down, it's time to discover your personal style. 

Shabby Chic

Are you the outdoorsy type who wears your heart on your sleeve? If so, you might be interested in the shabby chic style sleeper sofa. Originating from 1980s England, shabby chic combines worn, vintage furniture with interesting brush and paint effects (usually in white). 

American Colonial

Feeling presidential? Recognized for its use of geometry, there's nothing like the cozy American colonial style. By furnishing with predominantly dark finished wood, this interior design style unites homey with diplomacy. 

Arts and Crafts

Celebrate true craftsmanship, woodworking skills, and natural beauty with the arts and crafts style. Incorporate muted, earthy tones with wooden, glass, and stone furnishings can help reunite man with nature in your own home.

If you believe, "less is more," then you are some of the few minimalists left on this earth. Embrace open spaces and clean, subtle furniture, and you'll feel like your home is where you can feel at peace with both yourself and one another.

This is one of the newer interior design styles to appear in recent history but has already taken the interior design world by storm. Inspired by art deco, the modern style blurs the line between art and furniture.
