6 Florida Design Styles That Never Go Out of Style

July 1, 2020 Michael Flahaven

When we think Florida design, the first thought that usually comes to mind are those four incredible Golden Girls. These women set the scene thirty years ago for what the world would think of when they think ‘Florida’.

The wonderful weird thing has been, it’s stuck. The easy, breezy look of open air and tiled floors. Light colored walls meet easy-to-care for fabric all sewn together with a backdrop of the tropics.

6 Florida Design Styles That Last

Tropical Influences

Whether bold and bright or soft and subtle, tropical inspired patterns and furniture will always be a win in Florida decor. The elegantly curled fern wood accents and traditional turned legs give your living room the air of an island oasis. The tropical accents create a casual appeal characteristic of Florida style.

Neutral Palettes

Neutral palettes are always in style in one form or another, because they are so versatile. Whether in a bedroom or living room, a neutral palette brings a vibe of cool sophistication. Want a little more color? Add some accent pillows, a throw, and an area rug, and you have a new color scheme with very little effort. The neutral palette gives you endless interior design possibilities.

Whimsical Floral Patterns

This timeless favorite was championed by Laura Ashley in the ’50s and has remained a staple ever since. However, less is definitely more when it comes to florals, so use them on cushions and lamp shades to bring a touch of whimsy into your home decor without going over the top.Dining Buffet with Silver Sand Finished Doors

A Touch of Glam with Metallic Accents

Who doesn’t love a little bit of glitter, glow, and shine? A little goes a long way, but it can also elevate your style and make your décor memorable. One or two statement pieces is all you need. The silver sand finish combined with cherry veneers finished in dark sable offers a unique and contrasting appeal.

Fun-loving Geometric Patterns

Geometric patterns have a youthful, carefree air about them. Although they can be traced back to the Aztecs, their popularity in home decor really took off in the ’60s, and they’ve been in style ever since. Use them on area rugs, upholstery for occasion chairs, or wallpaper to make a statement.Ivory Key Queen Pritchards Bay Panel Bed with Leather Wrapped Rattan and Silver Leaf Finials

Awesome Accent Walls

The demise of accent walls has been grossly exaggerated. An accent inspired by the pastel homes and whitewashed roofs of Bermuda makes the perfect backdrop a beautiful wicker four-poster bed. Traditional elements blend naturally with natural materials such as woven raffia and leather wrapped bamboo to create quintessential Florida style.

Mirrors on the Wall

Using mirrors to open up the space, make it seem bigger, and bring it light is a design trend that will never go out of style. A fresh take on the mirrored wall of the ’60s is to lean a large, floor-length mirror against a wall. You get the same illusion of more space without the dated look. They are also great for Florida homes with lovely garden views.
