Defining Elements of Florida Style Interior Design

South Florida cities have the special tropical charm those of us who live here have come to love. And the interior design has evolved to feature this beachy vibe. While you may still see some Mizner pink or seafoam green in the décor, Florida has moved on from the Miami Vice-style pastels that were once so common in its interiors. Take a quick look at how Florida's style has evolved.


Modern Minimalism and Monochrome Rooms

Modern minimalism is a popular trend that is picking up steam in South Florida. Everyone is downsizing, Marie Kondo-ing their homes and loving the extra spaciousness it gives them. Part of this minimalist style is furniture with sleek lines and low profiles. These pieces may not take up less actual space, but they do give you more visual space.
Tone-on-tone color schemes help keep a space simple, relaxed, and stylish. The Bedford Customizable Sofa from the Lexington Personal Design Series exemplifies this aesthetic with its clean lines and muted palette. Bring in some metallic or glass accents to bring in a little shimmer that bounces light around and adds depth to a monochromatic space. Or, forever the design go-to, add some throw pillows with a bit of sheen on them.

Geometric Patterns Elevate Your Style

This trend isn’t going anywhere. One of the best ways to instantly elevate your living room and give it a designer flair is to layer different styles. Geometric prints are great for that. Try some throw pillows with a geometric pattern, or maybe an area rug. If you want to get really bold, upholster a side chair with a geometric print. For kitchens, add a geometric tile pattern to the backsplash, and in the bathroom, you can tile the niche or waterfall with geometrics.



Resort-Style Living in South Florida

The Florida weather and lush foliage practically scream tropical resort. You can play up this vibe by turning your bedroom into a mini-resort with the Round Hill Bed with Woven Panel Inserts from Tommy Bahama Home Island Estate. The vibrant island textures and materials create an island vibe that is enhanced by the headboard and footboard with woven lampakanai panels. Leather-wrapped bamboo carved posts add to the resort feel of the room. The room itself says "relax and enjoy." You won’t have to hop on a plane to experience the magic of your favorite resort, you can live in it every day.

Bathrooms as Wellness Escapes

The bathroom as a wellness escape is rising in popularity, and for good reason. Creating a space where you can relax and unwind at the end of the day, or week is becoming more of a necessity than a luxury. Whether you go traditional or modern, these spaces usually require minimalist design elements: light, airy colors, natural stone, and quality linens, with as much natural light as possible. Once you’ve created such a room, you can easily incorporate wellness moments into your busy day-to-day routine.

Nautical Accents That Bring You Closer to the Ocean

Nautical accents have always been a staple in Florida design, and that probably won’t go away any time soon. Blue and white décor, nautical prints, brass lamps and fixtures are all a part of the nautical theme. Mixing sleek, contemporary chairs with a rustic wooden farm table keeps the feel fresh and lively. Or, choose bamboo and wicker for a more casual look. Keep the look nautical with cushions covered in marine blue upholstery and accented with white piping.

Using these elements, you can create a home as light, bright, and breezy as the Florida landscape. However you do it, make Florida-style your own style.

7 Elements of Interior Design

A lot of people confuse interior design with interior decor. Although they are related, interior design refers to all the elements that make up the living space, while interior decoration refers to upholstery and furniture in the space. They work together, as the furniture and upholstery are used to bring life to interior design. Here are the seven essential elements of interior design and how to use them.

beautiful

1. Two-Dimensional and Three-Dimensional Space

Space forms the foundation on which an interior design plan rests. Therefore, it is important to know the space’s dimensions and function. Space is delineated in two ways: two-dimensional space and three-dimensional space. Two-dimensional space refers to the length and width of the floor and three-dimensional space refers to the length, width, and height of the entire living space. Within these divisions are the elements of positive space and negative space. Positive space is filled with furniture and décor items, while negative space is empty. Balancing positive and negative space is essential to creating equilibrium. This means that you want to avoid overcrowding the space with furniture and, conversely, not adding enough furniture and décor. Above, the Criteria Queen Upholstered Bed by Bernhardt grounds the space without overpowering the room. Upholstered in a warm and contemporary light gray fabric with decorative nailhead accents, it adds a touch of drama and elegance to an otherwise sterile-looking space.

2. Lines Provide Grounding, Movement, and Drama

Lines create shapes and forms, and establish a sense of cohesion and contrast in a living space. Lines are defined as three types: horizontal, vertical, and dynamic. Horizontal lines ground the space, while vertical lines create a free and expansive feeling in a space. Horizontal lines define structures such as chairs, tables, beds, and tables. Vertical lines are found on windows, doors, cabinets and armoires.

Angular lines are dynamic, adding a sense of motion and drama to a room. They are found on structures such as vaulted ceilings and archways.

3. Forms Establish Harmony and Balance

Forms in interior design refer to the outline of three-dimensional objects in a room. Forms can be a combination of two or more shapes and are often highlighted by other elements such as patterns, texture, and color. A well-designed room uses forms to bring harmony and balance to the space.

Forms are either geometric (man-made) or natural (organic) and can be closed or open. Closed forms are enclosed while open forms can be looked into. A basic understanding of space and line will help you achieve a good form.

4. Light Highlights Special Pieces

Light is an important yet often overlooked element of interior design. Whether natural or man-made, if there is no light, the other elements such as color, pattern, and texture have no significance. Light helps highlight every design element, including line, space, and form. Beyond this, the right light will set the mood, create ambiance, and make living spaces functional.

Windows and doors are the sources of natural light. Well-placed windows can flood a space with natural light. Artificial or man-made lighting is divided into three categories: mood lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting.

Mood lighting, also called ambient lighting, sets the tone of the space. Task lighting includes bed and table lamps that have a specific purpose, such as reading. Accent lighting spotlights a particular feature such as artwork, structures, and sculptures.

5. Color Creates a Connection between Objects

The color palette establishes an aesthetic connection between objects in the space. For example, if you have two pieces of furniture of different styles, you unite them with color. In addition, colors evoke feelings and moods, and you can use that when you choose colors for your rooms.

Each color has three characteristics: hue, value, and intensity. Colors are classified into primary and secondary, with sub-categories of tertiary, complementary, and analogous. These characteristics are used to mix into various color combinations, including monochromatic color schemes.

6. Texture Makes It Interesting

Texture in the broadest sense refers to how a surface looks and feels. It serves to add interest and depth to a living space and also to define the feel and appearance of surfaces. It is classified into two types: visual texture and actual texture. Visual texture is only seen, while actual texture can be both seen and felt.

Textiles such as pillow covers, bedspreads, and drapes as well as wall paint or wallpapers have a texture. The dominant texture defines the mood of the space while adding contrasting texture helps avoid monotony in a space.

In this room featuring the Modern Brando Bed from Universal, the monochromatic color palette comes alive with faux fur upholstery in the end-of-bed bench, a little shimmer from the metal embellishments on the furniture, and visual interest from the stone walls.

7. Patterns Hold the Design Together

Patterns work with colors and texture to liven up interior design. They add continuity in a living space. Patterns can be of almost any shape and feature repetitive and attractive designs.

Mixed Media Furniture Is Trending: Are You Ready?

Compare and contrast. Watermelon and pink sea salt. Honey and Parmesan. Chocolate with chili. If you’ve noticed a theme here, it’s because these unexpected combinations may seem unusual, but they actually work. Each element brings out something in the other that they don’t have on their own.
Unusual combinations can also add interest and personality to our homes. Furniture with contrasting materials such as a wood and glass dining room table or a wood and metal side table can give your home a contemporary vibe.

Add a Mixed Media Table to Your Dining Room

A mixed media piece can add subtle interest to your room. In addition, by incorporating mixed media furniture into your design style, your space will come alive with freshness and personality. And, mixed media pieces go well with any design style.

For a sleek, contemporary dining room, try adding a clean-lined mixed-media table such as the MacArthur Park Beverly Place Rectangular Dining Table by Lexington Furniture. With its elegantly simple metal base and wood top, this table is refreshingly unexpected and surprisingly versatile. The gorgeous diamond-patterned veneer top, eclectic steel base, and crisp stainless steel inlay bring beauty and function together.

Make an Impact with Mixed Media Accessories

Wood and metal are popular materials for mixed media décor and furniture items. This classic pairing works just as easily in family rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms. When using a well-known pairing such as this one, look for new interpretations and treatments to level up your room’s style quota. Try a dramatic combination of glistening stainless steel and dark polished oak lamp for a modern look.

The Island Fusion Hermes Reef Glass Cocktail Table by Tommy Bahama combines a fused glass top and open, metal Pan Asian fretwork base for a Zen-inspired look. The glass top mimics the look of ocean glass washed ashore on a tropical beach, contrasting nicely with soft sofa upholstery.

Mixed Media Goes Glam

If your style leans more towards Hollywood Glam than mid-century minimalism, you can still use mixed media to get that look. By adding hand-applied silver leaf and a mirrored top, you get a cocktail table that is on-trend with thoughtful sophistication. The Ariana Rochelle Octagonal Cocktail Table by Lexington Furniture is reminiscent of a Moroccan silver jewelry box with artisanal touches and a weathered patina.

Make the Design Your Own

Not only is the mixed media look wonderfully modern, but it is also easier than ever to achieve. The look is bold but also pleasingly mellow. Ultimately, you can put together your own spaces any way you wish. Go with what you are drawn to, but keep in mind the purpose of each space. Using one statement piece with different materials is a great way to make what could be an ordinary room feel special. By thoughtfully mixing various types of materials, you will be able to tap into different textures, colors, and visual interest to create a space that pleases all facets of your personality.

Is Leather Furniture Still Popular?

If you are in the process of redecorating your living room, or any room of your home actually, you may be wondering if leather furniture is still in style. The answer to this question will be a resounding, “yes!” Opting for leather furniture is one of the best interior design choices you can make. Leather furniture has a timeless, adaptability to it that can fit in with many different design styles.

What Styles Go with Leather Furniture?

Not only can you find leather furniture in any style imaginable, from mid-century modern to traditional and everything in between, but leather furniture also goes with every style you can think of. It is durable and functional while making a stylistic statement. Check out the Foster Sofa by Bernhard, and you’ll see why a leather sofa is always a classic choice for luxury and beauty.

Perhaps this is because leather has been a favorite since the earliest days of humankind, valued for properties that only it possesses. The earliest, simplest furniture was probably an animal skin on the ground to give humans a warmer, comfier place to sit or sleep.

That popularity has never gone away. Leather remains a top choice as furniture upholstery when you want beautiful, high-quality furniture.

Where Can You Use Leather Furniture in Your Home?

If you are wondering where you can use leather furniture in your home, my question is, where can’t you? Leather works like a warm neutral in any design, full of rich, yummy texture, and if you want a bold splash of color.

Leather goes great in the living room, den, and even the bedroom with a piece like this Los Altos Dominica Leather Rectangular Mirror by Tommy Bahama. The wood-trimmed leather frame features brown top-stitching and a natural finish that completes any look.

Leather also mixes well with upholstered pieces. A leather sofa grouped with two upholstered side chairs helps you avoid the matchy-matchy look. Mixing it up like this creates a visually intriguing look for your home. And if you are going for the ottoman-as-coffee-table look, a leather ottoman will quickly become the hub of a room of upholstered pieces.

Quality, Quality, and More Quality

When you a looking for quality furniture, you need look no further than leather. It has always been associated with top-of-the-line, premier furniture. A living room with leather furniture makes a lasting impression. Nothing looks and feels as classy as leather. They have a soft, glove-like feel and maintain this suppleness for the life of the furniture. Because of leather’s unique natural fibers and other qualities, it gets softer and more supple with age. Instead of looking worn, age merely makes leather furniture, even more, inviting.

When you choose a leather piece of furniture, pick a style you love and that will stand the test of time. Traditional styles and sleek minimalistic styles match with almost any look. A classic frame with a classic color is safe and beautiful while covering a classic frame with a contemporary color makes it a little more modern. Or you can do the opposite. Either way, you’ve got a piece of furniture that will bring you joy for years to come.

5 Ways to Make Your Living Room Décor Pop

As smart TVs get bigger and bigger, it’s easy to see how they can take over your living room. This may not be the aesthetic you were going for in this multi-purpose space. With that in mind, it’s a good time to consider a living room refresh. These 5 easy tips will make your living room pop and take the attention off the TV.

beautiful leather sofa with map art


Create a Focal Point That Doesn’t Compete with the TV

A leather sofa, such as the Foster Stationary sofa is an instant focal point. This gorgeous sofa with rolled arms, plush cushions, and nailhead trim will definitely take center stage. Situated in front of a statement wall, it will instantly draw the eye of anyone who enters the room. Place the TV across from the sofa so that it doesn’t compete with the statement wall.

Add balance with pieces such as chairs with a similar scale and style. You can mix it up by adding a piece with fabric upholstery. Table lamps add height, and a coffee table helps ground the space.

Undress Your Windows to Let the Light In

A simple update is to get new curtains in a bold or fun pattern or print. Even better, dress down your windows to let in plenty of light. Add sheers that let the light flow through and create a more relaxed vibe in the living room. Take the curtain rod all the way to the ceiling and hang the curtains so that they fall all the way to the floor.

The bright, natural light suits the Coastal Living Home Escape Kiawah Sofa by Universal. It’s the perfect blend of comfort, style, and function. The natural light makes the colorful pillows pop against the clean white upholstery. Blue lamps and throw rug add to the vibrant feel of the space.

Personalize the Space with a Curated Collection

The living room is a space made for personalization. Since you spend the majority of your downtime in this space, adding personal touches will make it more inviting. You can add framed personal pictures, meaningful accessories, or a carefully curated collection displayed like those in the Ocean Club Pacifica Entertainment Console and Tradewinds Bookcases by Tommy Bahama Home. You can create a media center and have plenty of room to display personal items such as pottery, specimen corals, and books. There’s even enough room for your smart TV.

Create a Gallery Wall

Another way to personalize your living room and create a focal point is to create a gallery wall. Arrange a collection of black and white photographs, or colorful canvasses with a theme such as waterscapes or landscapes. This is a great way to display meaningful quotes and special pictures.

Add Some Greenery

As a final touch, add a plant or flowers to your living room. Plants such as the Chinese Evergreen, iron plant, peace lily, begonias, snake plant, bromeliads, and cacti are great low-maintenance indoor plants. These plants will add freshness and life to your living room as well as pops of color.

Glossary of Furniture Terms

Do you sometimes get confused about furniture names and terms? Couch, sofa, loveseat, divan, or Davenport (as my grandmother used to say) are all the same type of seating. Or, are they?

If you’re confused about what to call different pieces of furniture and other interior design terminology, you’re not alone. While no one will be confused – too much – if you say sofa when you mean couch, there are some other terms that will help you communicate with your interior designer or salesperson when looking for just the right piece for your home.

Chaise lounge: French for long chair and pronounced “shez long,” this piece of furniture is designed for personal reclining and is not normally a motion piece.

​Baer's Furniture Reviews: Great Customer Service

Online shopping has never been easier. However, when furniture shopping, most people prefer the tactile experience offered in a brick-and-mortar store. So, while I may shop, or “research” as they say these days, online, I like to buy in-store. I like the physical experience of seeing, touching, and sitting on the furniture before making the decision to purchase.

Because of this new retail dynamic, online reviews play a big role in the research phase. At least they do for me. For example, when recently looking for some new furniture, I came across these great reviews for Baer’s Furniture. You can get a lot of information from reviews, as these Baer’s Furniture reviews demonstrate.

How to Decorate a Small Bedroom for Maximum Impact

Florida condos, vintage homes, and modern space downsizing all require a design that makes the best use of a small space. If you want to redecorate your bedroom but are worried that you don’t have enough bedroom to redecorate, read on. I’ve put together some great small bedroom tips that can help you maximize your space without minimizing your style.

While you may see design shows featuring bedrooms with sitting areas, a king size bed, and office space in the bedroom, don’t forget that the bedroom’s main purpose is for relaxing, recharging, and, of course, sleeping. And you don’t need a lot of space to create a room where you can do all three.

In fact, your small bedroom could be the best thing for a better night’s sleep (besides the right mattress). According to the American Sleep Association, stimulating activities should be banned from the bedroom. Distractions such as the TV, work areas, and the Internet can interrupt your sleep patterns. So, the fewer distractions in your bedroom, the better and more sleep you will get.

Check out these tips for creating a bedroom that makes up in style what it lacks in square footage.
