1. Modern style.
First, we need to emphasize that, contrary to the misconception, which usually occurs due to semantic misunderstanding, there is no essential connection between a modern and contemporary design style. While there are apparent similarities to the concept, these are two different styles.
The contemporary design focuses on the dominant styles relevant to modern times, while modern design refers to the elements we will explain below.
So what, then, is the modern design style?
The prevailing perception is that this style's roots come from the 1920s (to the 1950s) of the last century.
The modern design movement originates mainly from Scandinavian cultural sources, which have sanctified the principle of simplicity.
You will not find in this style architecture or vague decoration. On the contrary, everything will be straightforward and functional.
The guiding principle is that every object and space should be designed to bring Beatty its functionality and purpose.
If you like simple, uncluttered spaces with clean lines and a lack of fussiness, you probably have a fondness (even if you did not know) for this style.
Other important principles included in this design style emphasize horizontal and vertical lines with fewer curves. Also, regulations like - increased affection for "natural" elements, such as increasing natural light, and increased and almost exclusive use of raw materials such as wood (unpainted) and copper, along with genuine leather and fibers - and the like - are very significant in this design style.
very simple and functional
By the way, the principles noted above have created a natural connection to the monochrome style.
After all, monochrome means (in a nutshell) the use of a single shade of colors, so it naturally connects to the same elements of the modern design style.

In conclusion, if we were required to formulate this style in one famous sentence, it would probably be:
"Keep it simple (and natural)."
2. Country style.
If you are interested in warm and cozy feelings - the country design style is the one that will suit you.
The prevailing belief is that this style originates from old homes that used materials within their reach. And when you can not use pompous raw material, you use what you can find, and in most cases, these will be natural raw materials that you have been able to get your hands on.
The country's design style tends to be based on existing natural resources, materials in their basic configuration, and manual processing performed primarily by artisans and experts in their field.
In contrast to the modern style we expanded on in the section above, which idealizes the use of the raw material as is, the country style is not "ashamed" to develop and take the natural raw materials one step ahead straight towards perfection and progress.
In a non-specific way, the primary materials used in the country design are different and dark types of wood, natural stone, natural iron profiles, and ornate and rough textiles.
You can add color types like cream, beige, subtle shades of brown, and a decorative combination of red, yellow, green, and a variety of more dominant metals like copper.
A warm feeling of coziness
Country design is mainly expressed in its inviting and embracing look. Imagine for a moment a lovely grandmother on a rocking chair in a quiet, happy prairie in Texas, knitting a sweater for her granddaughter.

4. Minimalist design style.
The essence of this style is already known to some of you to a certain extent, even just from hearing its name.
The most important principle of this style lies in its motto - "less is more" (This sentence was minted in the 1930s by the architect Ms. van der Rohe).
Similar to the modern design style, simplicity also occupies a central place here. No unnecessary elements, and of course, only a few colors.
In a nutshell, the main characteristics of the minimalist design style are clean lines, monochromatic colors, open spaces with lots of natural light coming in, and a focus on purpose-built furniture only, which will, of course, lead to creating more free space.
The minimalist style strives to create an organized living environment, which is very convenient to arrange and clean. Of course, every element has a clear and defined place, logical, smart, and efficient.
With that being said, it is essential to beware of a situation where the principle of minimalism takes us to the wrong places - Places of boredom, emptiness, and a complete lack of personality.
"Less is more" - true. But "less" does not mean complete emptiness. Because, as mentioned, the line between minimalism and emptiness is fragile. Therefore one should pay attention to this principle, and if you are interested in this style, ensure to give the reins to a qualified professional in the field so you won't get lost.
It is also important to note that despite the similarity mentioned above between the minimalist and modern styles, it does not mean that there is a perfect match between them and that they are identical. Because they are not.
It is indeed true that just like modern design, the minimalist design embraces clean lines, neutral colors, functional furniture, and non-artificial lighting. But at the same time, where the modern design style allows for more spontaneous decoration, minimalist design only deals with the use of items that try to achieve a particular goal.
