Find Your Home Style
It's no secret that your personal style says a lot about you. From your decorative tastes to your approach to interior design, these things make up your sense of home. Perhaps your home has a clearly defined style like mid-century modern or rustic farmhouse but these days, it's much more likely that your home is a fusion of styles—like modern farmhouse or transitional (a hybrid style that borrows from both modern and traditional elements).
The room styles found on this page are only meant to be a starting point. Take note of what you like and don't like as you browse through living room styles, kitchens and bedrooms. Once you have a few rooms that you like (and a few that you don't!), look for similarities across the likes and dislikes to find a high-level theme. If you find that you hate mismatched elements or clutter, your style probably trends towards minimalist. Minimalist homes focus on creating a "less is more" environment where natural light and basic color palettes are front and center. Create more light in your minimalist living room by adding mirrors
. Alternatively if you appreciate the creativity and vibrancy in mix-and-match textiles and colors, you may learn toward eclectic or Bohemian styles.
Mixing Interior Design Styles
Don't feel like your home has to fit within the definitive lines of a particular style either. You can have a contemporary or modern living room but lean toward a Bohemian vibe in your bedroom. Feel free to mix and match materials, finishes, wall colors and furniture types to create your own style. The best style for your home is one that finds way to marry bits and pieces of your personal tastes even if that's changed throughout the years.
