Your home is an extension of who you are and you should therefore make sure that you are expressing your personality through interior design and decoration. The style you select speaks of who you are. Happy, go lucky people tend to go for the eclectic style, while melancholic thoughtful types prefer more traditional styles of interior design. What is your home saying about you? Here are some interior decorating styles that could ring true for your personality!
Let’s start with eclectic decorating. This style tends to be a mixture of bold, happy colors and prints. Pieces of furniture that don’t quite go with anything in particular, but when they are part of a bigger picture they look pretty good. Artsy types, who tend to be happy go lucky, will enjoy the arts and crafts decorating style. This style embraces stone, wood and various fabrics inspired by art.
Country decorating is for those who love French provincial design and/or the American country. It includes lots of wood and floral patterns. This style of decorating is close to the traditional home decorating style. This is basically the style that your Mom has in her house as it is associated with the older more mature generation. Both of these styles tend to create a very warm and cozy atmosphere. This category of people also enjoys the retro-style of decorating which includes vintage flair and flea-market shopping for knick knacks to put on display.
Then there is the modern or contemporary style of decorating for the cool calculating types. This style works with clean lines and angles. Warm colors and accessories can make this decorating style quite welcoming too. If you love travelling, you can reflect that part of your personality by decorating various rooms in styles from various cultures. Get your creative juices flowing and express your personality through interior design.
