    Creating your own interior design is often the most enjoyable part of building a new home.

    However, with so many decor styles on offer, it can be confusing when it comes to choosing the colours and style for your home.

    The most important thing to remember is to choose a style and theme that complements your personality. The interior design process starts at your colours and selections meeting, and will continue after handover as you move your furniture in.

    Contemporary

    Defined by open space and ‘sophisticated’ neutral colours like white, beige, taupe and black, contemporary décor is all about clean, neat lines. The furniture often has a clear, defined shape to provide a smooth profile, and not many accessories are required. If you want to add something a little extra, large pieces of art or a defined feature wall is the way to go.

    French provincial

    French provincial is a warm and inviting style that emanates from the French countryside. Marble, stone and timber are all used in beautiful whites and creams, with curved legs and other decorative details the standout feature on the furniture. If it is elegance you are after, French provincial is the way to go.

    Coastal

    Whether you live by the beach or just dream about ocean breezes, coastal-themed interior décor should reflect the beauty and luxury of living by the sea. It should have a relaxed ease about it and feel open and airy. White finishes with touches of light coloured wood and sea-themed accents in lights blues are perfect for a coastal home.

    White on white

    White décor has been a popular trend for some time. It’s a harmonious and pleasant shade to use in the home because it represents luxury, yet also has a relaxed vibe about it. White décor provides a good base for the home to then implement splashes of colour through cushions and wall hangings.
