3 Steps to Finding Your Design Style

3 Steps to Finding Your Design Style

Many homemakers struggle to find their home decor style. Home owners often just don’t know where to begin. While there are many resources out there for discovering your design style, it’s important to remember that most people don’t fit into one category. People often mix two or three styles when developing their individual style, and that’s okay! We are here to give you three steps you can take to discover your design style:


1. Make a list of the items you already have in your home.

Take a look at the furniture and accessories you have, the color of the walls, and the different patterns and fabrics used throughout your space. These items most likely will give you an idea of what you like.

2. Do some research!

Grab some home decor magazines and cut out the photos that speak to you, or create a Pinterest board of photos for inspiration. Compiling design photos that you really like will reveal the ideal look of your home that you should be going for.

3. Find the commonalities!

Look at what you have and look and what you desire. What common characteristics do the two share? For example, do you notice a lot of darker colors and raw wood furnishings? If so, you may like the industrial style. If you notice that the things you like fall into two categories, then perhaps it’s a good idea for you to mix the two styles!
