I firmly believe your home should reflect who you are. Anyone who walks into your home should instantly know who are you and what you like.
It may not sound like any of this is relevant when home decor shopping, but your space literally reflects everything about you and your personality. You can find out a lot about someone by their home. Your home should reflect the most important person in it, YOU! So, today I’m sharing with you tips on how you can find YOUR style and I’m sharing images from my favorite designer, Betsey Johsnon, and how she nailed her own person decor style.
I am so passionate about helping you come up with cost efficient DIY’s and showing you how to transform a space without a lot of money. I know it’s hard to decorate without much money, I’ve been there (remember when I made over my living room for $200?)! You don’t have to be embarrassed having people over to your home because it doesn’t reflect who you are, because you can transform a space on very little money. You just have to get creative.
So, how do you transform a space? First, you have to find your style.
“How do I know what I like?”
Does it bring your joy when you see it? This doesn’t mean to buy absolutely everything you see that you like, but you should only have things in your own that you love and most should serve a purpose.
I like so many different styles, how do I incorporate them all?
If you like all sorts of different styles, you may have an eclectic vibe. You can incorporate them all by finding your style.
Where can I find inspiration?
You can find inspiration literally anywhere. I think the best places to start is in your closet. How do you like to dress and what do you feel most confident wearing? Do you like to mix bold prints or do you prefer wearing all black? Maybe you love wearing floral prints, pastels, stripes, fur, leather, etc…The options really are endless and it’s up to you to incorporate your style and your design into your home. It’s fun!
Think of the jewelry you like to wear as accessories and finishings in your decor. Do you like to mix silver and gold or do you prefer one of the other? Do you like to wear small dainty jewelry pieces or do you prefer the big, gaudy, costume jewelry. Would you not be caught dead wearing fake diamonds or are you alllll about the Claire’s store? Your jewelry says a lot about the accesses and furnishings you should have in your home.
Still confused? If you like to mix metals on yourself, mix them up in your home.
If you prefer big, gaudy, costume jewelry, I expect to see a big flashy statement piece, such as a chandelier, in your home.
Home decor is all reflective of you so make sure your space reflects who you are, just like your clothing choices do.
