As I've already told you, in a week or so. I am moving - which have caused me to look at a lot of furniture in the last couple of weeks. Here are some thoughts on different styles I fancy and why.
My type of interior style is mostly industrial with a hint of modern and Scandinavian interior. Modern farmhouse, as industrial, are very popular nowadays with exposed brick and wood as well as more hints of metal and concrete. If you are unfamiliar, think Espresso House, typical dark interior bars all over the world as well as more modern looking pubs. It has always been a big ”interior turn-on” for me and although I am not happy about feeling unoriginal I like that the style is so common that finding just the right type of furniture is not a struggle.
The modern style is very important to me. It’s not that important that I stick with it 100% and I am not a huge fan of the style itself. But I do like it, a lot. Mostly because, to me, the style is like a palette cleanser. If your home has some modern or more neutral styled furniture you might not get as sick of it as you could be. Take this for an example: 2 weeks ago my mom and I went second hand shopping. I found this gorgeous, red, velvet, vintage sofa for a very low price point that looked close to un-used and I fell in love. I had to talk my self out of getting it simply because, even though there was an instant attraction it wasn’t a sofa I could spend the rest of my life with. A more modern sofa is. And if you’re afraid you’ll get tired of it, get a couple of sets of blankets and throw-pillows and change it up whenever you feel like it. By choosing the modern or more neutral couch I am making a sustainable and budget-friendly choice.
I’m not a fan of the hipster aesthetic because it feels cluttered and here is where the Scandinavian interior design style comes in to play. I love white walls with wooden floors as well as the concept of having a decluttered and almost minimalist home – or a least the looks of it. I love watching videos on YouTube about smart living in small places. Every corner and furniture has a specific purpose and I imagine people feeling a lot happier and less stressed in a decluttered environment.
The only thing I truly appreciate about a hipster aesthetic are the many plants along with the Christmas lights.
