A personal story
Discovering my style
"I believed in order to live 'beautifully', it had to look like what I was seeing on Instagram. And this had led me to make design choices that did not reflect my personality."
Designing a home for me
What's your style?
Try to take a little stroll through your closet. What do you see hanging in there? Are you more of a classic, chic dresser or do you prefer to live life on the wild side with some flowery pieces? Your fashion choices can be a great indicator of your personal style, so use them as a starting point for your home decor journey.
Look at what you have
Next, take a good look around your current home. What pieces do you already have that you just adore? Is your collection full of vintage treasures or are you more into clean, modern lines? Identifying the styles you already love will give you a good idea of what to incorporate more of in your decor.
What makes you tick?
Now it's time to gather some inspiration! Flip through those home decor magazines, scroll through Pinterest, and browse your favorite home decor blogs. Save pictures of rooms and pieces that make your heart skip a beat and try to identify the common threads between them. Do you notice a particular color palette or furniture style that really speaks to you? Use this information to help define your decor style.
Make it yours
I hope this will work as well for you as it did for me. With an idea of what your style is, you'll be well on your way to creating a home that is truly a reflection of your personality.
Happy decorating, I can't wait to see you in the next article!
