What's Your Style - Home Decor

10/08/2013


You know what's proven to be kind of challenging for me? Picking out a particular style when it comes to home decor. Do any of you have this problem? I mean I've always loved the cute cottage appeal of French Country, and the grand old antiques found in Victorian styles. Matt and I both totally fell in love with the simple, straight lines and incorporation of natural wood when we traveled through Bali and then there's always the cool, retro look of Mid Century Modern. I have a feeling that when we do end up decorating our future home, it's going to be an eclectic combination of everything.

Here are some fun links of different home decor styles:

Love this rustic and eclectic attic workspace. 

Beautiful French Country inspired bathroom. Hello yellow clawfoot tub!

Cool Mid Century Modern living space (love the chairs)!

This Balinese style home is probably my idea of perfection.

Girl, I am right there with you! I feel like a crazy person when I try to pinpoint my style. When it comes to home decor I bounce from loving clean, simple lines and bright pops of color to loving rustic elements and a sort of eclectic sort of Moroccan vibe. I haven't quite figured out how to make these things live together in harmony, but I'm working on it ;)

Love your mantel!

I like a mix of styles as well and it's kinda fun to figure out how to make them work together.

I definitely lean towards "cozy". I notice when we stay in very modern hotels it never quite feels like home. Although we both appreciate the style!

I've wavered back and forth between Scandinavian modern and French country provincial and now I'm heavily leaning towards the latter. I love that exposed brick you have! That goes with any decor. xo

Oh I love questions like this! LOVE them. It's so hard to choose, isn't it? Sometimes it's easier to react to what I know I *don't* like that to what I do, you know? So hard to narrow things down.

I do know that cottagey and French country tend to be a bit fussy for me and sometimes mid-centruy can be too stark. I lean minimal, and I'm with you: that Balinese home is perfection. Totally NOT what I was expecting AT ALL when I clicked on the link!

I really struggle with this as well. An old coworker, who's style I respect, once told me that if you only buy what you love...it will all mesh together perfectly. I love that advice but I still feel like my home is a hodge podge.

My parents always had such eclectic taste, and I thought I'd never be so mismatched–but as it turns out, my traditional style has a little bit of my parents' mismatch in it!

i like to call my favorite style vintage-modern; it's kind of nondescript and encompasses just about everything. and, yes, that bali house, i'll take one of those.

I can never pinpoint the style of our home. All that matters is it's warm, cozy & ours~

always, koru kate

Cohesiveness is overrated! As long as you love everything in your home, it'll fit together just right. :)

I think it's fun to just be eclectic! In my apartment, I think the only connecting theme is "stuff I love." I have no idea what my style would be called but I guess it's a mix of lots of different genres. I always enjoy a blending of modern and traditional as well.

yes i feel like i am forever not happy with our home decor either that my styles change frequently but my bank account cant keep up with my desires for change

A Mid Century Modern interior would be amazing! But then I'd go and mess everything up with a photo of a giant hot dog, my Coke collection, and some old toy. Haha.

I love the lampshade in the rustic and eclectic attic workspace. I haven’t seen something like that before? Is it from a branch of a tree?
