Over the last few months I have noticed a major change in my overall design style. What I was drawn to before just doesn’t seem to do it for me anymore. Much to my husbands dismay (thank goodness I married such a good sport!) there have been a lot of changes happening in our house lately. The thing is though, I don’t think change is a bad thing (in fact, my interior design education and career would be all for not if it wasn’t for change) and I think finding your design style is something that happens over time. A sometimes long period of time. The best part about interior design and the way we decorate our homes is that ever evolving sense of beauty. The more you read, the more you know, the more you immerse yourself in the world of design…the more your design style is likely to change.
In the today’s world of Google, Pinterest and all of the amazing design blogs out there, we are constantly surrounded by beautiful images. The more we search means the more we are going to see and absorb and that’s bound to have an effect on what you appreciate and want in your own designs. That constant submersion in such creative beauty is, inevitably, going to rub off on us and our design styles are bound to change here and there.
Design is a process. Decorating our homes is a journey. It’s not something that happens over night. I love the layers of design that happen over years of adding, editing, and molding your space to your life. Some of the best designs, in my opinion, are the ones that incorporate many different styles to create one cohesive space. Don’t feel confined to one specific design aesthetic. Mixing and matching styles and adding layers over time is exactly what creates dynamic, interesting, successfully designed spaces. Your design may, in fact, never be “final” but that’s the fun part!
As my style changes so does our home. We’ve been making some changes around here, big and small, that I can’t wait to tell you about over the next few weeks while I share my thoughts on how you can find your style and create spaces that truly make you happy! Ready for a peak at a project we’ve been working on?
Wait for it…wait for it…
