What is your Design Style?

What is your Design Style?

Would you like to replace some furniture pieces you received from your parents after college? Have you moved from a Craftsman home to a rancher and want your interior décor to reflect the architecture of your new home? Is your bedroom in need of a facelift? All of us desire a functional space that feels comfortable and expresses our identity to visitors.

Before adding another piece or decorating an entire room, decide how you want to use the room and what furniture or décor you have now that you like, and then consider what piece you desire. Is it a bed, side table, or light fixture?

Now, figure out what design style it should exude. Because there are thousands of pillows, lighting fixtures, or dining chairs to choose from, knowing your specific style helps the decision-making process - you're pointed in the right direction and choices can be simplified. Determining your design style, or even a few styles that overlap, will not only help with looking for a new piece but your choices in the end will complement each other and enhance the design flow of a room.
