Take a picture it lasts longer…
I’m sure that you’ve all noticed the design challenge going around where bloggers have been asking people to select one photo that represents their own decorating style.
For the longest time I’ve been trying to decide what the perfect picture would be. You see I have a bit of design ADD. I love little bits of everything. I love cottage style, but I also love boho chic and why not thrown in some contemporary elements as well. I think the main key to being a good designer is being able to work with many different styles and help your client reflex their own personal style in the home as well.
On Saturday my mom had some of her friends come over to show them my new digs. They all ohhed and ahhed and loved everything they saw, which was super rewarding for me. I have no really been able to pin-point an exact name to my design style. I just know what I like, but one of the guests viewing my house described it as Traditional Modern.
I have never thought of myself as very traditional or very modern, but in looking around she was right. I like old homes full of character and love keeping some of those elements in place, yet I love color and little pops of fun throughout my home as well.
Enter one of my favorite design images that has everything that I love:

I love everything about this room. The window treatments and wallpaper can look a bit traditional especially if you continued with that look throughout the room, but adding pops of color and fun and you get that glam modern look that I’m loving.
I love all the different textures throughout the room. That touch of ruffle from the windows to the wrought iron bed. Oh love it all! Even though the room may seem a bit busy to some I think the crisp white bed linens help to balance that.
Now as for the fun in the room I’m loving the pops of turquoise and of course that to die for Chevron rug from Madeline Weinrib. Add to that one of my favorite accessory items the handbag and the touch of whimsy with the little bird and I’m one happy lady.
My favorite little tiny detail from the room has to be that orange book. It didn’t need to be there, but in my eyes it totally helps complete the look of the room.
So my loves have you all taken part and posted a favorite image of yours? Tell me all about it, because I want to go check them out!
