What's Your Design Style?

Like anything else, styles - and design - changes.  In clothing, in cars, and in decorating.  With the advent of HGTV and websites, such as Houzz, anyone can gather ideas and make a few changes to vary the look of a room.  

Here are a few of the most popular current decorating styles:

  • Industrial - Think warehouse.  Open, high ceiling with exposed beams, brick and duct work.
  • Mid-Century Modern - Think "Mad Men".  Simply, sleek and retro.
  • Bohemian - Think whimsy.  Nearly anything goes, just follow your heart.  Bright colors, floor pillows and vintage finds are often incorporated into this design style.
  • Rustic - Think nature.  Twigs, logs and plants are used to bring the outside in for this style, coupled with reclaimed and cozy furniture.
  • Transitional. Think balance.  This design style mixes traditional and modern design for a bit of the unexpected.

There are other design styles and many people have their own personal style that can't be pigeon-holed into a category.  What's your decorating style?
