Pet Beds For Top Home Decor Styles
The HomeDIY website shares with us the top 10 home decor styles that are most popular these days. Today’s 10 Most Popular Decorating Styles Article by Brittany Smart is all about people spaces and this article focuses about pet spaces!
Farmhouse Home Decor Style
Farmhouse Style Home Decor can be described as simple, sensible and savvy. Pieces are functional, quality and practical. Is Farmhouse Home Decor going away? We don’t think so, it is more like a lifestyle, rather than just a decor style. For those who have ‘farmhouse’ in their blood, it will always be a part of your decorating style and will continually evolve. Beds for dogs and cats that fit Farmhouse style tend to have simple prints, quality fabric and easily blend into a number of design styles including rustic, industrial or shabby chic.

Traditional Home Decor can best be described as a combination and evolution of European and American styles. The history of these design styles, combined with a more modern view, come together to create a classic and luxurious look with rich wood tones, elegant fabrics and magnificent accessories. This is a trend may feel very American, it has European roots. Once a very formal design style, it has become much more casual, but for some a more formal version will never go away. Today’s modern traditional homes feature a few fashionable touches such as an animal print rug, modern art pieces and tend to always show off trending colors. While featuring the trending colors, the current “in” metal finish and an abundance of accessories, the combination tends to always be very luxurious and more formal than most of the current popular design styles.
