Move over, minimalism and white walls. Spruce up your space with these cool yet uncommon home decor styles!
Moving into a new space? Toying with the idea of a refurb? Sometimes, you want something jazzier than the minimalist trend that has taken over your Instagram feed. Don’t get us wrong, sleek lines and monochromatic palettes will always have a place in our hearts. But for a standout home look, go for one of these unique interior design styles, we say.
Let’s start with one of the most cheerful themes, shall we? A good pop of colour can easily transform even the dullest of spaces. From a wash of paint on the walls to a tastefully selected contrast seat, there’s a joy-inducing option for every space. As far as unique interior designs go, this is also one of the simplest to recreate – all you need is one statement item!
We went furniture window shopping (virtually) at FortyTwo, one of our fave furniture stores, for home decor inspiration. And the eye-catching picks on our pop colours moodboard? The stylish Aldora chair (pictured top) that adds a touch of pink and navy to any room. There’s also the plush Helin ottoman in a deep midnight blue that we’d cop for the living room. Whichever you choose, we bet it’ll be your most-loved seat in the room.
If going back in time to the 50s, 60s or 70s sounds like a dream come true, you’ll love this one. Make like you’re on the set of an old Hollywood film with a retro glam interior that looks oh so chic. And it won’t break the bank either!
For starters, we love a good emerald pick, so FortyTwo’s Bernicia L-shape sofa looks like the ideal option to jazz up a Netflix and wine sesh. And because emerald and brown are a match made in colour heaven, we’re definitely adding the caramel coloured Loretta chair to our wish list too. With velvet upholstery and gold chrome legs, it fits the retro glam theme to a T!
Converting industrial spaces into stylish lofts have spurred the romanticising of this unique interior design style, and for good reason. With gritty metal furniture, muted tones and dark colours, this coveted look is modern and edgy at the same time.
Nothing says industrial chic like a rustic metal pipe frame, and the Ethel coffee table from FortyTwo is aesthetically spot on. Pair it with Ziya replica pendant lamp overhead for a stylish, black iron pulley lighting system. The best part? These pieces will fit into almost any space, even if you don’t have a two-storey loft to make over.
