Design styles generally fall into 3 main catagories: Traditional, Contemporary or Mixed. No matter which catefory you fall into, Carlo Builders is here to help make that style uniquely yours. Let's take a brief look at each style.
Traditional designs may also be called Classic, Warm or Feminine. Traditional design looks are timeless and tend to appeal to all generations and cultures. Traditional designs hold a sense of austerity and authenticity and often includes historical elements. It is heavy on the use of wood tones and accented with deep and rich colors that you might find in nature. Distressed cabinetry and ornate trim work are sometimes incorporated.
Contemporary designs may also be called Modern, Trendy, or Masculine. With Contemporary designs we see an overall sense of simplicity. Contemporary looks are always changing based on what is fashionable or trendy at the time, however clean lines and seamless transitions are their hallmark, along with delightful and innovative surprises.
Mixed designs may also be called Transitional or Balanced. This style mixes elements of multiple design styles in a harmonious way by focusing on seamless transitions. Rustic-Contemporary is an example of a mixed style. Mixed styles are obtained by blending different design elements through a thread of similarity. This is most easily obtained through the use of color. In that regard Mixed styles rely heavily on the use of mutued or neutral tones like grays, whites, creams, taupes and tans, mixed and matched in an intelligent way. Using our example, we might combine cream-colored stone flooring with matte-finished, cream-colored marble countertops.
