How should you decorate your apartment?Pinterest has been preparing you for this moment for years. The only problem is that you’re a fan of Urban Outfitters, but you’re also into antique Persian rugs, which means you’re a bit lost on where to begin when it comes to choosing a style that fits your aesthetic. To help you out, here are 3 of the most popular styles of interiors ranged from hot to hottest to kick-start your interior decoration journey.

Bringing in traditional elements can add a touch of fancy ornate flair to your space. Though some people today aren’t ready to deck their entire home in tans, pale colors, and brass, traditional elements can be found throughout most homes. For a cool contrast, putting an antique style chair in a fun accent color into a modern space can add a unique touch that will make a great impression.

If traditional isn’t your thing, but ultra modern isn’t exactly your thing either, you’re in good company. Welcome to the wonderful world of transitional design. Transitional is the happy medium between traditional and contemporary and includes elements from both. Transitional tends to feature a simple color palette and focuses mostly on the different metals and textures in the space. Clean lines are the norm and decorations are kept to a few strong accent pieces. If you’re a minimalist at heart, transitional may be your calling. You can break transitional norm if you choose and add a bit more color to your space while staying true to the simple lines and textures typically found in this style.


What’s hot right now: Industrial

If you were super pumped that your new space had a console sink and exposed brick wall, chances are you’re an industrial interior design lover. The industrial interior design revolves around making the elements typically hidden in a home the focal point of the space. The result is a cool warehouse look that is very hot right now. You may think to achieve an industrial look is a simple task, but it takes careful consideration of what elements to expose and which to hide. Raw woods, concretes, and pipes are staples of this look.

Congratulations! You’ve aced your crash course on what’s hot right now in the design world. You now have a solid platform to work from when it comes to curating your own personal style.
