Industrial home décor is based on the industrial era and uses metallic and wooden elements quite liberally. It can use brick walls too to give the home more of rustic and mature décor.

A key element in industrial décor is rugged visuals and ornamentations. Although, you are also free to go with antique styles too, especially if you are using industrial furniture that’s characterized by tufted Chesterfield sofas, rustic coffee tables and dining tables, and other wooden decorations that you typically find in a house.


2. Farmhouse



The farmhouse is another popular home décor theme that takes a modern approach to the cabin-inspired décor. The good news is that creating the décor is rather easy. You can start by sourcing some greeneries including dried lavender and other flowers and arrange these plants carefully to create an authentic “feel”. For the furniture, you can go with distressed wood and upholstered fabrics like linen, and the color palette can be focused on beige and white. One more thing- seasoned home designers would want you to lean towards accent colors that are light yellow, turquoise, etc. but you can take a different approach and add bright colors for a strong impact.


3. Urban Modern



Urban décor draws inspiration from big cities with lofty buildings and monuments. As expected, you will find a slew of complementary and opposing traits in the styles. For instance, you can use ethnic heirlooms, sophisticated ornaments, and rather edgy designs that evoke strong emotions.

There are many directions that you can take to give your home a makeover with modern décor. For instance, you can replace your current furniture pieces with their larger counterparts and achieve a sleek and chic profile. You can also add decorative accents with artistic and bolder mirrors, pillows, etc. that have unique geometric designs. Just be sure to do your research beforehand, like learning the difference between modern design and contemporary design. 


4. Nautical



Nautical décor is all about creating a comfortable and positive ambiance. It’s also referred to as cottage or coastal décor as it draws inspiration from beach house style elements. To be more specific, it builds a foundation on the following colors- white, brown, and blue- the elements of sand and the sea. As for the materials, you can go with unfinished wood for the furniture, mainly the tables and chairs. You may also want to incorporate pieces that reflect sea life viz. jute ropes, sailboats, maps, etc. Just be sure to not go overboard- you don’t want to make your house look like the inside of a submarine. 

Bottom Line

In this blog post, we shared some of the most popular home décor themes in today’s world. They may all seem good to you, but it’s important that you make the choice with care.

Also, you don’t have to exactly follow the styling in this blog- you are free to experiment with your own ideas. Have fun, and good luck!
