Do you have a hard time defining your style? For example, when people ask me what my home’s style is, my answer falls somewhere along the lines of “ eclectic, cottage, farmhouse, vintage-inspired, Anthropologie-ish, not-quite-shabby, not-quite-traditional, almost contemporary, but really it depends on the day/week/phase of the moon, etc.” Phew.
It’s almost easier to define what isn’t my style than to define what is.

When looking at inspiration photos, one thing I’ve learned is to ask myself “what about this room am I drawn to.”
Narrowing down exactly what I like helps me to figure out exactly what I find pleasing in a room.
Secondly, I ask myself “will this room work for my family.”
Because, let’s face it, there are plenty of aesthetically pleasing rooms that I may like, but that do not fit my style, my home, and my family’s lifestyle.
Obviously there’s a lot more to be said on this topic, and it makes me wonder….
What tips/tricks do you use to help figure out your home decor style?
