Today I’m discussing my decorating style as a part of the “What’s Your Style” series. What words describe the look and feel of your home’s decor? Sometimes it isn’t as simple as a one word definition or description. What I love about decorating for myself in my own home is that there are no rules, no titles, no terms, no laws. All that matters when it comes down to it is that we’re comfortable. And what makes me happy (in a decorating sense) is being surrounded by a mix and match of colors and styles and things that I love. I’ve never been able to pinpoint one specific design style (see my home tour) to describe the look of my home. It’s always evolving, ever changing. I can easily describe my style in one word: “mutt”. You’ll find rustic charm, vintage but modern too, a touch of cottage style here and there mixed with flea market and farmhouse inspired decor with a bit of fun and colorful and even industrial elements. Quite a mix, right? So it goes without saying that “eclectic” is one word that encompasses the mutt-mix of design style in my home. I really don’t give labeling my design style much thought. I just do what I love. But after walking through my rooms, I’d call my style “intrinsic eclectic”, short for “eclectic-vintage-modern-farmhouse-country-fleamarket-cottage-rustic-charm”. It really depends on which room you’re standing in around here and what time of the year it is. As a part of the “What’s Your Style” series, we’re taking a look at living spaces. If you’re visiting from the fabulous Danika at Gorgeous Shiny Things, welcome! I’m so glad you’re here! C’mon in, make yourself at home! You can find a list of all 13 bloggers’ living spaces at the end of this blog post along with an awesome Mohawk rug giveaway. Our family room is casual, fun and definitely eclectic. I’m never afraid to combine periods and styles and prefer to mix new with old and flea market finds to create a space that feels at home in our home.Summary: Because of my love for decorating, I find that I’m drawn to flea market finds and DIY accents that fit my style (and budget) best… a fun challenge that drives my creativity and results in a unique look that I love. “Intrinsic Eclectic” sums up my style.
