Characterized by its carefree aesthetic, boho style is all about playing with patterns, layering textures, incorporating natural elements, and creating a cozy space where you can just chill out.


A popular home decorating style in New England and along the East Coast, coastal style combines plush furniture with white, blue, and soft green hues to give off an airy, dreamy feel perfect for oceanside living.

Cottagecore is the hot new trend in home decorating. Mixing French-style country decor with elements of vintage, rustic, and farmhouse styles, cottagecore is all about comfort, simplicity, and romance.


Last year’s winner, farmhouse style blends minimalism with rustic and industrial elements. Farmhouse has been one of the most popular styles for the last few years, thanks to its neutral palette and cozy materials.


Global style is all about designing a worldly living space that reflects a love of travel and experiencing new cultures. Statement furniture, exotic patterns, and vintage finds are all part of this eclectic decorating style.


A hybrid of Scandinavian and Japanese interior decorating styles, Japandi style is a form of minimalism that focuses on uncluttered spaces, wood elements, clean lines, light color palettes, and soft furnishings.


“More is better” is the philosophy behind maximalist style. Unlike its minimalist counterpart, maximalism embraces a wide range of colors, mismatched patterns, and funky decor to showcase eccentric personalities.

Urban Jungle

Urban jungle style is characterized by its abundance of greenery, which creates a jungle-like feel. The base decorating style can be anything from boho to industrial, as long as the emphasis is on houseplants.
