Quick: what one word best describes your decorating style?
Not sure? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Even if you love decorating, it’s not always easy to pinpoint exactly what makes your house your home. But once you know what to call your style, you’ll find decorating decisions become so much easier – and shopping that much more exciting!
You probably have sooooo many projects you would like to tackle,sooooo many different styles that you LOVE,yet there's a nagging hurdle that's preventing you from putting your projects in motion.
YOURSELF!
That's right. You have so many thoughts running around your head that you cant figure out the direction you need to go to begin transforming your ideas into beautiful spaces. There is an easy way to defeat that design block that has you dragging your feet. Determining your design style will you help you step into the right direction!

Eclectic Style-This is my favorite!! I really love mixing other styles together. The natural woods with primitives,cozy cottage white fabrics,worn reclaimed items throw in a reclaimed piece of furniture describes our home perfectly! You will find many of these type of things in my home. I am also a big lover of decorating with family photos. Surrounding myself with the ones I love!
 Beachy Style-This is such a great style-crisp white furniture and walls and blues with pops of nautical decor and warm woods give any home a cozy beachy feel. You don't have to live on the beach to feel like you do!
Primitives Style-There is a special place in my heart for the love of primitive style! Usually this style is antiqued with yellows,deep reds,greens black & navy blues. The perfect antique items displayed with love around the room. Braided rugs are commonly found in primitive styled homes along with different wood grains combined together to create a warm comfy feeling. Makes me feel like I want to curl up in front of the fireplace with a good book and a quilt!
 French Country Style-This style usually includes a collection of various patterns, stripes with floral just like in this picture. Furniture items are usually ornate with wood and alot of curved edges and style to them. Greens,pinks,whites and some blues are usually the colors of choice. I love me some french country style mixed with a cottage feel myself.
 Modern Decor Style- This style uses alot of straight lines with some dramatic colors. Sometimes furniture can be a blunt shape or hanging art can be whimsical,dramatic or abstract. This pictured room has alot of straight lines along with a pop of dramatic color in furniture but the rug underneath the round coffee table warms up the space.
