Interior Design Styles that Inspire You

Interior Design Trends

Interior design styles cover a huge range of tastes and trends. Today, you can take almost any direction you want with your interior designer at your side. Maybe you tend toward Traditional interior design but want to mix it up! Transitional furnishings and styles continue to be popular, but Boho flourishes and Modern minimalism are super appealing, too.  

Here’s your guide to sorting out interior design styles, which can inspire you to dip your toe into new décor for your home or apartment. Of course, we welcome you to visit Dwell Home Furnishings & Interior Design in Coralville to take in the latest trends in home fashion, lighting and furnishings.

Transitional — Merging Old & New

Transitional style is one of the most popular styles for Iowa City and Cedar Rapids homeowners. Transitional design can blend new furnishings and décor with your family heirlooms to create a grounded, comfortable space. Rich in a neutral color palette, the key to Transitional is bringing diverse elements together into a cohesive whole. It offers a more casual take than the more formal Traditional style.

Here’s a great example of Transitional style in a vacation home.

Our Coralville showroom continually refreshes its stock of furnishings and accents. To see a fantastic selection of Transitional furnishings and accessories for your home, visit us today.

Modern — Minimal and Clean

Modern interior designs are associated with minimal, clean design, but it doesn’t have to be dull! Today’s modern looks offer eye-popping blocks of color or splashes of graphics that add excitement. As you will see in our showroom, modern accent chairs and sofas often feature wooden or metal legs that look great placed on a graphic rug. A tonal color scheme using natural materials like leather provides a pleasing foundation for many people who love Modern design. Mid-Century Modern brings more color, curves, and space-age elements into a room.

Check out two very different Modern looks designed and furnished by Dwell Home Furnishings & Interior Design:

Cedar Rapids Modern

Boho Design – Textured and Exotic

Add color and conversation pieces to your space with Boho style! From rich, textured rugs to colorful pillows and artwork, Boho interior design elements reflect a creative Bohemian vibe. Bright gem tones contrast with native, exotic and earthy pieces, such as carved teak tables, brass lamps and faux fur rugs. Incorporate unique, handcrafted bowls and textiles alongside vintage finds for a vibrant, personalized space where almost anything goes! Fun and youthful, Boho style is appealing to people with creative and/or retro personal fashion tastes.

Traditional — Classic Comfort

For many families in the Iowa City-Cedar Rapids area, traditional interior design offers classic comfort and color schemes. Traditional homes tend to be more formal in their staging, with centered furnishings and artwork that brings order to the space. Classic style is timeless. It leans into traditional materials for seating, tables and lighting. Today’s Traditional homes embrace grays and earthy neutrals to create warmth for gathering with family and friends.

Marcus - Our Wonderful Logistics Manager!

Marcus graduated from Iowa State with a degree in Apparel and Merchandising. He’s the one who oversees all the tracking for special orders to make sure our merchandise gets from point A to point B, and every place in between! You can say he continued to pursue his love for apparel and merchandising here at Dwell through his tedious tracking and his coordination with our out of state projects.

Outside of his work here at Dwell, some of his favorite things to do are traveling, going to concerts, and spending time with friends, family, and his bernedoodle, Avery! 🥰
