Bare rooms were thought to be in bad taste, so each surface had to be filled with items which reflected the homeowner’s aspirations and interests. Dining rooms were the second-most vital rooms within the home. The sideboard most oftentimes was the dining room’s focal point and extremely ornately decorated.

A theme will be a consistent idea that is utilized throughout the room to develop a feel of completeness. Styles should not be confused with designing concepts, or higher-level parties, that include a fuller understanding of architectural context, or the socio-cultural and programmatic needs of a client.

Instances include: Art Deco, Gothic, Indian Mughal, Minimalist, English Georgian, Mid-Century Modern, Feng Shui, International, Victorian, Islamic, Louis XV, Louis XVI and a lot more.

Louis XIV – In the middle of the 17th century, the king of France, Louis XIV, favoured a very grand style of interior. Furniture was heavy and finishings were fussy. Gilding was everywhere – on doors, furniture, mouldings – and yet more decoration was added with boule marquetry on furniture, (using tortoiseshell and brass) and detailed paintings on ceilings.
