4 Trendy interior design styles to be inspired by  featured image

Even though there may be similar exterior house styles to your own locally, you may find that you wish to spruce up the interior design of your home in a beautiful and unique way best fitting your aesthetic desires. 

Knowing some of the home design basics can help you find the style or even multiple styles you like to update your home. 

Mid-century modern

Mid-century modern styles began to form in the mid 1900s and are categorized by reserved yet not barren decor. This style often features sleek and uncluttered furniture placement and furniture types. 

One major defining feature of this style type is the use of wood to stabilize the overall design. Exposed wood via the walls, furniture and flooring can give any room a warm, earthy and cozy feeling sure to make a house feel like a home. 


A new design currently growing in popularity is the industrial style. Industrial homes use a great deal of the shade white, red brick and stainless steel which almost gives off a traditional factory vibe. 

Homes with an industrial design are simplistic, clean and well-put together. They often utilize just 1 or 2 bold hues, making it easy to highlight fun and eccentric pieces. 

Shabby chic

Shabby chic puts a modern, slightly more romantic spin on more traditional styles. This style uses light and neutral hues, floral patterns and vintage accessories to highlight a modern yet classic appeal. 


Contemporary design is characterized by its minimalist decor design, great use of cool tones, natural materials and “clean” aesthetic choices. Rooms with this design type are often sleek and have features with deliberate use of unique  lines and hue to complement and contrast the simplistic nature of the space. 

There are so many amazing design typers to choose from and take inspiration from when decorating your home. Using the aforementioned styles, you may find the perfect choice to create an environment that tells your story in the way you’d like for it to.

About the Author

Debbie Goldberg

I'm a full time Realtor with over 30 years of experience yet young enough to embrace today's ever-changing scope of marketing and technology. Having grown up in Connecticut and moved many times (too many to count!) I can empathize with today's buyers and sellers. Strictly maintaining ethical standards and being a fierce advocate on behalf of my clients are things I take very seriously. As a buyer, you can expect me to listen to and evaluate your real estate wants and needs. I can assist in explaining relevant forms, agreements, and closing procedures. I will guide you through the process of finding the right home, negotiating your offer, adhering to all contract dates and terms as well as final walk through and closing procedures. As a seller, I will listen to and evaluate your goals, needs, and timing in order to properly price your home to get the maximum exposure needed to attract the right buyers. In addition to negotiating on your behalf, I will make sure we communicate throughout the entire process as we navigate the contract terms, finance and inspection contingencies, as well as all closing procedures. I was born in Japan, grew up in Hamden and lived in New York, Ohio and Southern California before settling down in New Haven county to raise two kids, two dogs and a cat. I'm passionate about good food and love to bake. Some of my free time has been spent volunteering at Temple Beth Sholom, a synagogue where my family has been members for over 40 years. I also spend time at Tower One/Tower East, an assisted living center in New Haven where my mother-in-law now resides. 30 years of helping buyers and sellers achieve their goals has given me the peace of mind to know that what I do everyday matters. If you are thinking of buying or selling please keep me in mind.
