Interior design styles can be customized to fit any particular taste.  Here are six different interpretations of modern interiors that give you a glimpse of ways to focus your decorating goals.  Whether you are an art lover, enjoy color or prefer pure white interiors, there is a modern style for you.  If you love nature, enjoy the minimalist style or prefer a more classic approach to modern design, there is a modern style for you.

The artist or art lover can focus their design goals around a favorite painting, piece of sculpture or a collection of artwork.  There are no limits to this style.  Integrate colors from artwork into the room design.  Design a monochromatic room of gray, white or neutrals and add a pop of color or a focal point with a painting or sculpture.  Incorporate pieces of functional art in your home with unique seating pieces or lighting.

A love of color is no reason not to try modern style.  Infuse vivid colors throughout the design or add splashes of color from a vibrant area rug or artwork.  If it’s just a slight touch of color you are looking for, add throw pillows or one chair that stands out.  For a more eclectic modern look, use various colors throughout the room with accessories.

The purist is one who enjoys a very clean and sleek modern look, perhaps a white interior.  This look has edge and power.  It is fresh and offers a blank canvas to display stand-out pieces.  In rooms with large windows, this look is bright and practically glows.  Include neutrals and natural materials to add texture and depth.  Accent with wood to add warmth to the space.  Try high-gloss paint on walls and other surfaces for interest and light reflection.

The minimalist modern style focuses on form, function and quality.  Invest in fewer high-quality pieces for an open, uncluttered look.  Architectural details show through and enhance the space.  Minimalist modern style is sleek and refined; ideally for the person who likes order and simple luxury.

For the nature lover, there are multiple ways to include natural elements in the modern home.  Wall gardens are a unique way to bring the outdoors in.  Planting mosses for a living wall adds great texture, interest and color.  Incorporate natural materials, such as rough-hewn wood tables, bent wood or rattan furniture.  A collection of branches or natural coral accent a modern space.  Organic shapes that mimic nature are perfect for the modern home.  Curved seating and plant-like chandeliers make a strong, elegant statement.

The traditionalist is a person that appreciates the aesthetic of modern but likes classic elements.  This style leans more toward contemporary and transitional design but still has a very modern vibe.  Lines are clean but accents are more personal and the room takes on a collected feel.  Classic modern pieces, such as the Barcelona chair, combine with worn leather pieces.  Warm woods and texture create welcoming spaces.  This style is a more relaxed modern.
