Finding Your Personal Design Style

If you’re having a hard time figuring out your particular design style, you’re not alone. Most people take a hybrid approach when it comes to their decorating style.

To make the most of your competing style preferences -- in a complementary way -- one suggestion is to pick a dominant style and then have accent pieces and accessories in another style. Read through some home decorating magazines and watch some home decorating shows – doing so will help you decide which style is best for you and your home.

You could also visit a local gallery and take pictures of pieces that you like -- when you get home and lay them out, you may find patterns emerge that will help you plan your environment.
