It’s nice to have some guiding principles when taking on a project as monumental as designing a space. Maybe a few aesthetic room ideas to help you build your way to an ever-alluring vibe.

The Paris Apartment Aesthetic

There are a few crucial elements to the Paris Apartment Aesthetic that can’t easily be purchased: high ceilings, herringbone hardwoods, and some elaborate crown molding. But if you have white walls and lofty windows, there’s plenty you can do to mimic the airy, timeless Parisian vibe.

Parisian apartment windows always seem to be open. Let the city breeze billow throw some delicate linen curtains.

The “Hipstoric” Home Aesthetic

The Minimalist Office Aesthetic

If you believe the state of your desk is a direct reflection of your work mindset, a minimalist aesthetic is a perfect fit for an office. With clean lines and uncluttered surfaces, it’s much easier to slip into get-it-done mode.

I have these sturdy beauties in my own home. The low profile look never feels heavy, and it’s easy to give them a seasonal #shelfie refresh.

The Cottagecore Aesthetic

The cheery, social media-driven trend is still going strong. Cottagecore’s high-design nature can veer into too twee territory fast, however, so it’s helpful to have some guidance when decorating with the English countryside aesthetic in mind.
