dressing my home.

A good friend of mine asked me to describe my style of decorating at about the very same time my good friend Anthropologie sent me an email asking me the same thing! So, here goes...



















I honestly have trouble defining my sense of style. I often think about it and try to narrow it down to something but I just can't.

Decorating my home is a HUGE passion of mine. It has always been something very important to me....ever since I was very little.

This is something that I don't talk about very often but I don't have open range to do whatever I want with my home and this is a huge struggle for me. Although this sounds ridiculous, it saddens me very much!

My style in a few short words. Things that I like and make me happy.

I think of myself as eclectic with a strong emphasis on a cozy and welcoming feel. I like splashes of different styles.

My favorite magazine is Country Living and my favorite store is Anthropologie so those two have a very strong influence in the direction that I like to decorate. I get so much inspiration from them both!

I like pieces that have a story behind them and aren't so common. I like making things myself and working on home projects rather than buying something that you could find in any living room. I also pay VERY close attention to details.

I try to stay away from trendy, new prodcucts made to look old, putting something somewhere just so it's not empty.

I like different aspects of french country, garden, rustic, scandinavian but I wouldn't say just one or all define my style.

Your home says a lot about you, I think. I aim to have a pretty, refreshing, unique, cozy place. Where people feel welcome and have a lot to look at, especially things they may have never seen before or atleast not often.

I live in what I call a "cookie cutter" house so I try very hard to make it stick out (in a good way) from the rest of tract houses!

So, I'm curious...What would you say your style is? I would love to hear how you like to decorate!

Well, I'm an interior designer with a huge passion for simple lines and bold colours. A life is synonimous of colour, energy and passion. I believe we all identify ourselves with a colour and most important, a colour shade...

My interiors are very eclectic. All my objects have stories to tell. I like new and old yet simple.

Have a good day.

I don't have a particular style either. I love what I love, and I use it. Very eclectic. I love Anthro also...it's very whimsical and eclectic too.

I say if you use what you love, it can't be wrong. Why bother decorating with stuff you don't love just because it's within a style's parameters?

Great post! That's a very good question...don't know that I can define it - I need to think about it. Have a wonderful week!

This is a great question. I had enormous troubles when I started my blog and had to describe my style. I think my style evolves as well, but I guess I have narrowed it down to vintage mixed with coastal. There, I said it!

My style - depends what day you ask me! I'd like to own about 10 houses so I could have all the styles I love. Leigh
