As you browse through your local home decor stores or browse through online shopping sites offering home decor and home accents, you will sometimes run across terms used to describe a particular decorating style. Terms such as rustic home decor, Tuscan style home decor, and country home decor. If you’re the type of person who just knows what they like when they see it, it may not mean much to you. If you’re interested in how a particular style suits your preferences and brings your decorating personality to life, then read on for a brief overview of some of the most popular home decorating trends.

Rustic style home decor is primarily dependant on things found in nature. Thinks woods, water, stones and natural metals. If you can visualize a cabin in the woods or a lodge in the mountains you’ve got a good idea as to what the rustic design style represents. Not everyone lives in a cabin or lodge however but there are ways to incorporate this look in your home or office. Choose simple home accents made of these natural elements and you’re off to a good start. Look for items that appear authentic or weathered such as decorative copper pieces, a washed wood bench for your porch, polished stones displayed on decorative metal or wood bowls and trays. Consider and animal hide or faux hide rug or wall hanging. The most important thing to remember is that the more natural looking the accent the more authentic looking rustic style home decorating will be.

Tuscan style home decor is a widely popular style of decorating. This luscious region of Italy is the primary inspiration here. Tuscan style is often referred to as “old world” because of the classic architecture in the region. Visualize both the natural beauty of the region itself coupled with its charming architecture to select the right home accents and color scheme for your home. The colors of this design style are often subtle and pleasing shades representing a variety of grapes and olives. Artisan pottery and stone, wrought iron accents and distressed woods are also good choices when selecting home accent pieces. The internet can provide a wealth of information to you regarding the Tuscan home decorating styles but be sure to research this region to get a real feeling for the style.

Country home decor is about as charming as it comes. Whether its French country decor, English country decor or classic American country they all have the same basic foundation when it comes to decorating styles. Country home decor is charming and quaint, aged but not old, relaxed. The best accents for this type of decor include aged, distressed woods and hand crafted fabrics. Look for distressed reds, blues, greens, yellows and whites.

There are many popular home decorating styles to consider and the most important is that consider what works best for your personal tastes. If you favor a particular decor learn everything you can about the time period and the basic elements needed to achieve the look. Selecting the right accents for home or office will tie any decor together perfectly.
