Given the opportunity to start with a blank slate, which style of home would you choose? Would you stick with the style you have grown accustomed to, or would you throw caution to the wind and choose something entirely different? I believe that most of us evolve into our overall style from the pieces we choose throughout life, starting out with what we can afford and eventually replace and upgrade along the way. But given the opportunity to style an entirely bare home do you think it would be difficult to choose your furniture and decor and find your own personal design style without the help of a professional? Please let me know your thoughts and here are some of your choices:
Bohemian: or boho-chic, is more about free expression and conveys our inner hippie chick. It’s unconventional, easy, liberating and colorful.
Coastal: This style is comfortable and reminds us of everything we love about being at the beach.
Contemporary: means of the moment or constantly evolving. It borrows elements from traditional, modern, and art deco. It is neutral and clean and has no clutter.
Cottage: style is cozy and charming. There is a simplicity to the pieces which are often mismatched.
Eclectic: style is a mix and match combining many different styles. It doesn’t matter if it “goes”, it is just loved by the owner and can reflect many different aspects of our personality.
Farmhouse: style is known for its warmth and simplicity, characterized by natural textures and materials like wood or galvanized steel.
French country: style has an old-world aesthetic and effortlessly blends elegance with simplicity.
Industrial: style has an old factory and yes, industrial feel to it. It’s edgy, hard, grey and textural.
Mid-century modern: style is based on a design from the mid 20th century, 1933 to 1965. It has clean lines and organic curves, contemporary patterns and one of a kind accents.
Minimalist: style most closely resonates with what is uber modern. It is spacious rooms with minimal furniture and details and screams of simplicity.
Rustic: style has neutral and earthy colors that embrace an organic warmth. It often reflects nature-inspired textures and the furniture can appear to be repurposed or handbuilt, or used.
Traditional: style that was born in the colonial era. This traditional style is ultimately comfortable and casual and has warmth and familiarity. More than anything, it is classic.
