Looking to update your home but not sure where to start? There are many different design styles to consider when giving your home a makeover, from Scandinavian and mid-century modern to French provincial and contemporary.

So whether you’re embarking on a large-scale home renovation or just giving your kitchen a refresh, having a strong sense of various interior decorating styles can give your home a polished and cohesive look.

Here, we take a look at 7 popular types of interior design.

1. Scandinavian

If you’re after a simple but cosy house interior style, consider Scandinavian (or Scandi). One of the key features of Scandinavian style is the concept of hygge, a Danish term which loosely means cosiness. It’s the idea of treasuring the simple things in life and creating a sense of warmth within the home.

According to Home Beautiful, Scandinavian style “has a particular flair for affordable, functional furniture, made using natural materials and traditional craftsmanship, and it is at the heart of Scandi style.

“You can learn a lot about a nation from their homes, and in Denmark, most of them have a very similar look: white walls, wooden floors, uncluttered surfaces and smart, designer touches,” says Helen Russell

“Every home is centred around a dining room table and having family meals together is an important part of life.”

2. Hamptons

A hugely popular interior decorating style in Australia, classic Hamptons style embraces a fresh, airy palette and natural textures.

According to Home Beautiful, the decorating style is “inspired by the architecture and decorating of holiday homes and buildings in the luxury seaside communities along the eastern beaches of upstate New York’s neighbouring Long Island.”

White and blue are key colours in Hamptons-style interiors, together with key elements such as well-positioned windows to optimise cross-ventilation, plantation shutters, nautical-style décor, timber floorboards and timber moulding along hallways and staircases.
