What's Your Style - Do You Know?
Begin by finding out what you like
Choose a style and mood you find attractive and comfortable for the family. Good design is as functional as it is beautiful. Few have the luxury to create a new room from scratch. So begin with an existing carpet or sofa and make one your focal point. Then begin collecting samples closest in texture and color. You might also collect pictures of rooms that appeal to you, but be realistic in your choice of pictures since you want to live comfortably in the room you're decorating. Remember YOUR home is YOUR sanctuary. So by now you may have an idea of what your style is. Is it?:
- Traditional (formal, rich fabrics, cherry wood, elegant)
- Country (antiques, pine, collectibles, comfortable warm feel)
- Contemporary (clean lines, dramatic)
- Romantic (soft, elegant, ruffles, lace)
- Oriental (antiques, dramatic colors, high style)
- Southwestern (earth tones, textures, artifacts)
- Transitional or Eclectic (mixes of any style)
If there's a lot going on in a room you should remember that pattern scales, proportion and color in draperies, accessories and carpeting should be balanced. Use a limited color palette to unify.
Don't restrict yourself to only one range of colors. Experiment with a variety of colors and textures. If there is a strong pattern on your permanent fixture, use those colors as the basis for your new color scheme.
Once you decide on a scheme in terms of colors, materials, furnishing, and details, wait a few days, then go back and try to loosen it up a little. You don't want everything to match perfectly since the room will look contrived and unwelcoming. Throw one extra color into the palette you've chosen, or use throw pillows that don't have the same textures as the drapes and it all comes down to an environment which then seems much more natural with your own individuality.
Celebrate Your Style and Individuality!
