Finding my style seems to be an ongoing challenge. A lot of our house isn’t “decorated” yet because I just haven’t quite figured out what I want to do.
On one hand, I think there’s a definite rustic element in our taste – which we definitely manifested in our fireplace. Other elements in the living room help contribute to the rustic feel as well.
On one hand, I really like cottage style – which I aimed for in the kitchen and dining room. I also think “cottage” fits better with our home’s exterior than rustic or modern styles.
Next, I really appreciate some elements of modern décor, which I think can add a whimsical character when mixed with more rustic elements.
And finally, I aspire to décor that’s just a little unique and unexpected, which of course always makes me think twice when I see something interesting.
With all those decorating styles, one challenge remains. Even if I successfully implement the look I’m going for in one room…there needs to be a continuation of style throughout the house. And there’s the rub
It’s a fun problem to have!
