Styles and Genres 3

Moving on from Bypass Variegated...

air traffic control aesthetic (Forton Services)

boutique hotel style: There’s quite a strong boutique hotel style going through this house. Sarah Beeny on Property Ladder (mainly consists of “different” taps and washbasins, folded coverlets laid across the bed, an “accent” wall with large-pattern flock wallpaper, and vases full of sticks – though they may be a bit passé)

dictator bling
equivocal metropolitan cocktail bar: the anomalous period between the world wars, against a rootless urban background of red brick and fumed oak, slot-machines on fluorescent seaside piers, huge ornate hotel lounges, equivocal metropolitan cocktail bars and fake Tudor provincial pubs… Julian Maclaren Ross on Patrick Hamilton

Executive homes built in the style of Victorian farm buildings converted into executive homes. (@IanMartin)

Expressionist anti-rationalism (Hadid and Libeskind)

faux chateau look (antiques expert Gillian Anderson Price)

fibreglass classicism

Henry Irving historical drama Gothic (late 19th century)

industrial chic (popular early 80s)

Jacobethan (1850s-1950s)

Modern Heritage Lounge Look: To create this traditionally-inspired Heritage style, a leather sofa with an antique feel looks stunning accented with sumptuous textured cushions in deep blues and plums. Adorn walls with Darwinian inspired botanical prints in bold picture frames and opt for paint effects and patterns with the patina of age. Occasional pieces with period detail and a sense of craftsmanship complete the Heritage collection. (Argos)


Post Office Georgian
pretend warehouse (John Lanchester)

quasi-neo-modernity: Past Times gone? But it goes against every indicator of deepening heritage kitsch! They'd survived quasi-neo-modernity! (@mwhitfield80/Matthew Whitfield)

riverside regen (Owen Hatherley)

rock-star rococo (Gaudi tiled walls and lots of huge ferns)

rough luxe

Tudoresque (aka Brewer’s Tudor, Mock Tudor)
