Traditional Home Design:
Traditional furniture & home décor has thrived for so long and with reason! Although the traditional style is stale and outdated, a look that reflects the past preserves a sense of familiarity and comfort. Traditional deemed rooms emphasize formal arrangements which encourage conversation, with curvy furniture that avoids sharp angles and neutral colors that do not make a large statement. Instead, beauty is found in the finishing touches, such as molding and trims. If a piece is not timeless, then it is not graceful enough to fit in this type of décor! Here is a traditional home décor video to help you get started.

Casual Home Design
Casual Home décor is perhaps best defined by its lack of regimented rules and unpretentious style. Despite its relaxed feel, a casual space is carefully put together! It merely gives the appearance of not so contrived, when in fact, different pieces are specifically hand-picked to mix in the bunch. A casual room is not matchy-matchy, but rather an intelligent blend of various decorating styles. Among the styles that usually get placed in this category are cottage, country, French country and shabby chic.

A contemporary design emphasizes a bold and trendy look. It also highlights shapes, textures and beautiful natural materials such as jute. Unlike in modern or traditional spaces, one that is contemporary is not afraid of using color. Having said this, using color is a reflection of personal taste, contrary to a monochrome palette. In addition, this specific home design is constantly evolving to keep up with trends. Yes, classic is timeless, but so is mundane. Keeping one guessing will never be uneventful!
