What do you think of when you hear the words ‘interior design’? If you’re anything like me, you probably picture interior design Kelly Wearstler flouncing around an empty room, spouting words like “airy”, “minimalist” and “revolutionary”. But interior design is big business these days, and clients will expect your average tradesman to be at least on nodding terms with it. So I’ve compiled a quick bluffers guide to help you sort your ‘colonial style’ from your ‘shabby chic’. Just memorize what’s below and you’ll even fool Kelly Wearstler.

Styles are important in interior design. Nobody wants their spanking new kitchen looking the same as Mr Smith’s next door, so if you’re going to learn about interior design, you need to have some popular styles memorized and a dose of sense of humor! 😉

Contemporary Kitchen Design. Minimalist, warm contemporary Kitchen Design. #Kitchen #ContemporaryKitchen #MinimalistKitchenIdeas

Contemporary – Here, you will find lots of straight lines and an overall minimalist feel.


Contemporary Kitchen. Contemporary Industrial Kitchen Design. #ContemporaryKitchen #IndustrialKitchen #MasculineKitchen

Industrial – Also known as “unfinished”. Industrial means the client wants to see the wiring and is happy with a grey concrete slab as a wall. The interiors usually feel “raw” and masculine.

Bathroom. Bathroom Design. Minimalist Bathroom Design. Industrial Bathroom with steel barn door. #Bathroom #BathroomDesign #IndustrialBathroomDesign



Kitchen. Retro inspired kitchen design. Kitchen. #RetroKitchen #Kitchen

Retro – The clients love the past and its unique shapes and design.

Like any trade, interior design has its own terms. Unlike most trades, however, interior design terms don’t sound straightforward and boring. If you want to master passing for an interior design expert, you’re going to have to learn to love these artsy phrases:
“Exploring your inner style” – It sounds like something a man in tights tells you on a yoga weekend, but don’t worry. Exploring your inner style just means trusting your designer’s instincts. Use it when you’re having a think.

Feng-Shui” – It means ‘wind and water’ in Chinese, but homeowners won’t thank you for giving their plumbing a once over and checking for draughts if they mention it. Basically, it means finding a way to place everything in the room to encourage Chi.

“Chi” – A term usually used with Feng-Shui. It’s an old Chinese term for positive energy, or good feelings. Placing furniture in a certain way will give you good feelings.

“Objet d’Art” – A French term for a small object with no real use except to give the owner a chance to boast about how much they paid for it. 🙂

Faux-Finish” – A term for using paint to make one surface look like another. So you might paint concrete to make it look like wood. Sort of like laminate flooring, only posher.
