In this blog, we take a look at the different interior design styles that you can choose from to make your new home in Barcelona into your own personal oasis.

Scandinavian design has become all the rage lately, with people gravitating to its minimalism and white and grey colour schemes. This design movement is all about embracing simplicity, with fluid lines and architectural furniture. Bright spaces with lots of natural light, the Scandinavian style relies on functionality as well as aesthetics, with a lot of the furniture pieces looking like pieces of art.
At the complete opposite end of the spectrum we have the Bohemian style. A comfy and warm atmosphere characterises the ‘boho’ style which makes it perfect for those who want their homes to be the epitome of comfort. Lots of texture in the form of rugs, blankets and wall hangings give bohemian styled homes a soft and welcoming look, as well as the traditional deep-coloured colour schemes.
If you’re moving to Barcelona to take advantage of the cosmopolitan atmosphere, then a modern interior design is the one for you. Inspired by chic city-living, modern design incorporates a lot of sleek lines and minimalistic finishes, think glass, stainless steel and acetate. However, accessories in modern designs can be flamboyant, giving the space pops of colour and more character.
Like modern design, industrial style takes advantage of different finishes, but to the extreme. Industrial interior designs tends to rely on the aesthetics of old factories and workshop. This includes exposed brickwork, copper piping and steel accents. This works best in lofty spaces in buildings that have been converted into homes from an different original use.
On the other hand, Barcelona is very well known for its beaches! So if you want your home to reflect the light and breezy atmosphere that goes along with the beach, nautical is the design style for you. It is usually characterised by its blue and white colour scheme and use of bleached woods and linen,. The nautical style works well when the sea air blows through your space. Feel like you’re home has been turned into your own private yacht!
