What Is Your Style?

Now that our weather is getting warmer, that means we are going to be able to do some more renos.  : )


Do you have a certain style or are you eclectic? 


DH and I are taking a mini vacay this weekend/family party. Once we get back, we are going to be seeing an exhibit from different designers who each got to redecorate a room in a brownstone, and I'm so looking forward to it.  I am trying to figure out if I need to have a specific style for our home or should I just go with the feel of each room.

I have always been a super contemporary girl .. but lately... I love to mix up the style to create a clean but cozy space that everyone can enjoy... I thought I was cozy contemporary, but I think I'm more of like a cape cod interior style lately... boy it's hard to really pin point my style but for me as long as it works you can basically mix anything and make it yours!

I love this post, Becca!


I think for me, it depends on the room. I love modern looks, especially in living spaces that tend to get cluttered. I like crisp, clean lines. 


In our bedroom, I love lush, romantic looks. I want a big thick comforter with lots of pretty accents.


I think it is easier for me to pinpoint styles that aren't me at all. I am not a rustic, country, or primative decor person. I love the look of it, and I have a girlfriend that has a BEAUTIFUL home on these lines, but it definitely isn't for me.

I think I'm definitely a contemporary person--but not TOO contemporary! It is hard to explain! I stayed at a Home2Suites hotel last week, and I swear it was the best decorated hotel I've ever been in! It was totally "me" I wish I had pics! I said, "I feel like I'm in an Ikea!!"

I think I have decided to be eclectic for our design style.  I will know more after we visit that exhibit in the city.  : )

Modern all the way! We're in the process of buying our first home and it is going to require a lot to get it how we want, but I'm excited about the challenge! I do like to add an unexpected antique piece every now and then though. ;)

Can't wait to see what you end up doing Becca!


I'm in the process of decorating our master bedroom, so when I'm done I'll post pics!

oh gawd! i would love to say I am the rustic elegance kinda girl... but that is only in two rooms. haha. I think I kinda have a different feel for each room... however, every room, I try to make it as cozy as possible. I want my home to feel well lived in, not just pretty in pics.


I agree with MissJess about the Master Bedroom! It has to feel lush and romantic.


So I guess I can sum up my style by saying its "pretty and cozy" <---- hahahaha

We like the modern contemporary style and I love to pair it with classic, sometimes romantic accents.

I have no idea what my style is! I love really open floor plans with high ceilings, marble counters and things that you would typically find in a more setting, but I also love all the older looking woodwork that is in our farmhouse...still trying to figure out a way to pair the two!

Definitely eclectic. I love modern or traditional pieces mixed up with weathered/vintage/re-purposed ones. For instance in our living room, our brand new Lazy-Boy sectional co-exists with a 100 year old trunk that serves as our end table/blanket keeper:) I also really love texture and layers--I think like Jaryce said, it contributes to the overall coziness of a room, and makes it feel welcoming.

 I think it is funny that I even write this, cause You all know me well enough to guess it. I think my style is 1900 century, I am an old soul. I like modernity only in the bathroom and the kitchen. The other rooms should be airy, not too stuffed, a few exquisite pieces of furniture. Light, clean, elegant, yet romantic with a warm feel to it. I may say french- bourgoise. nothing dusty,old or dark. and I love niches where you can sit in front of the windwo and read. these corners have colors, so eahc room gets a different frrl by colour
