So, how many of you are cray-cray obsessed with have seen the series that Jenna from Rain on a Tin Roof created called What’s Your Style? If not, you have to check it out! Best series ever! The series has lasted through January, February and March, and it included 13 bloggers sharing their decorating styles, and showing how their homes are decked out in that particular style. Sadly, the series is almost over, but you can still go back and stalk all of those 13 blogs and see their individual decorating styles. They have one more part that you can catch too, that hasn’t been posted yet.
See, I am not a professional interior designer. And hard though it may be to believe, I have no training whatsoever. I know, it is stunning, right? Ha! I kid, I think it is quite obvious that I am not a pro here, people. I have always had a love for decorating though, and if I could go back in time and be 18 again, I would totally major in interior design! But alas, that is not going to happen. So, I kind of feel my way around in the dark and just do what I like. Thankfully, I have so many awesome blogs to read and learn from! I have asked myself many times what my design style is. And I could never quite decide.
So thank you to Jenna from Rain on a Tin Roof, and all of the other 12 bloggers who participated, for helping me get started on my own personal style journey. One blog in particular, So Much Better with Age, was such a help to me in getting started on this journey. I loved the way Jamie broke down how she found her own decorating style. Her style is Industrial Beachy French, BTW. And she created a cheat sheet using each of those three words, Under each word she wrote key words that helped to define each of the three words, and what they mean to her, industrial, beachy and French. When I saw her cheat sheet, that really hit home with me, and helped me to believe that I too, could define my style, finally!
After much researching, pondering, stalking other blogs, and pinning away, I think I have a handle on my own style. I am calling my style Eclectic Modern Polished Casual. I even developed my own cheat sheet, wanna see it? I will show it to you, and then we will talk some more about how I cam to these realizations, and I will show you some pictures of my style.
There is so much I like about this kitchen, starting with how light and airy it is. This kitchen is a mix of both old and new. It looks like things were collected over time. The stainless steel appliances are modern and shiny, and the blue stove looks vintage. The butcher block and the hanging light pendant both look old too. The ceiling gives it a casual vibe. Everything about this kitchen makes it look collected over time, homey and casual.
I would love to have this bathroom. I love the clean white cabinetry, the marble counter tops and tile flooring are timeless. The wall sconces, mirrors, faucets and glass knobs are all shiny and add some bling to the room. I love the upholstered blue chair. It looks like a comfortable place to get ready each day. The Television on the wall would be awesome to have. This room looks both polished and casual at the same time.
Thanks for sticking with me through this wordy post, and if you are like me, and wondering how to define your own style, I hope you found some inspiration here today. Have a great week!Link Parties:
