Find your perfect style and match the home decor to suit.

When it comes to your home design, there are a number of ways that G.J. Gardner Homes can help you to get your dream underway. However choosing your decor is up to you.

What style will suit your personality? Below is a list of a few home decor styles we've explored that could complement your own personal style.

1) Minimalism

Ideal for those who love organisation and clean lines, the minimalist look will set your mind at ease whenever you enter a room. Removing the busy feeling of many other styles, the minimalist movement focuses instead on tidiness and everything having its own place. Cool artwork is definitely recommended here!

The minimalist movement can bring real peace to an environment because of the lack of busy clutter.

Typically associated with whites and straight lines, the movement can bring real peace to an environment because of the lack of busy clutter. Keeping this aesthetic consistent is not for the faint-hearted though, as it may require the occasional purge of excess items. Finding further inspiration is still necessary, so reading books such as these will help to shape your own decor choices.

A tip for keeping your home looking minimalist: always find a place in a cupboard or drawer for anything that will fit.

2) Bohemian

Much busier than the minimalists of this world, people who enjoy the bohemian movement appreciate drapes and showing off different colours and textures much more freely.

Often an Asian-inspired influence can be seen in the artwork, and comfort is the key for any pieces of furniture. A little bit of mess is not discouraged with this style as it only adds to the appeal. This is a perfect aesthetic for those on the go but who also love to travel. If you can find something to hang from the roof and throw lots of cushions on your furniture then you're well on your way to matching up as a bohemian.

IBISWorld reports that home furnishing purchases online in Australia generate $187 million in revenue annually, so the market is accessible from wherever you are located.

3) Homely

The most traditional of this selection, homely aesthetics tend to feature warmer colours and much more comfortable furniture. After all, the whole point of designing your own home is being able to make it work for you!

Throwing a rug down and having cool retro tiles are simple ways to match this movement, but to truly make it work you could invest in some ornate wood furniture that will really bring the whole look together.

Find your personal style and bring that into your new home!
