What's My Style?

Here's some more pages from my decorating file. But they confuse me somewhat. I mean, I love light, airy and romantic things like this ... (I can just see my cats having a ball with those curtains!)
But I also like bold and dark color contrasts and countrified things...



And then I'm back to this again which is a bit more in between...


What style am I?

I really like the country style look.

But in reality, I am the whatever I can get cheap or free look. We have miss match furniture here and there:)

I am in the same creek! I love that light airy look, but my living room is green, my kitchen bright blue and my dining room, red!! I just love color too much to do an all white and light room!!

Holly, I was thinking about your decorating notebook just yesterday! I was wishing I had started one a long time ago and thinking maybe it's not too late. I am just like you, I like the all white rooms, I like the cottagy-vintage look and I love country. I don't know if you can combine all these looks together, but right now I'm embracing my love of all things country and my kitchen and living room are headed in that direction. Have a beautiful day! Twyla

Hi, Vickie! Yes, the reality look! That's me! ♥

Holly said...

Hi, Twyla! No, it's never too late to start anything. Go for it!

Holly said...

Hi, Jenny! One of the reasons I've liked white walls through the years is then you can add any color to the room and it will work but I really can't imagine living in an ALL white room. ♥

Holly said...

Oh, Twyla! I forgot to give you one of these! ♥ ☺

Don't worry I think a lot of us have this problem! There are just so many great looks! I love dark wood but also love white painted wood. I have to say, having grown up with darker wood, that it needs to be dusted ALL the time. Maybe that'll sway your feelings!

Twyla and Lindsey said...

Thanks, Holly, I was feeling left out! Twyla

Holly said...

Noelle, It must be easier having just one taste! So good to see again! ☺ ♥


Katie, What's dusting? ☺ ♥


Twyla, ☺ ♥

Priscila said...

Holly said...

Hi, Carrie! I have red in my kitchen. It just seems to belong there! ♥

Holly said...

Hi, Pri! Yeah, let's go sit on that porch! Ya want too? ☺ ♥

Lori said...

Holly, Gosh you have such patience to wait! I agree with you about the colors, I love the reds, and deeper shades along with it, no brown please, but I really love my pink and pastels! Guess thats why I have the familyroom red! Its such a contrast to walk in there! Well girlie, have a beautiful Easter! Love,Lori

Holly said...

Lori! I didn't know you had a red family room! There is hope for me yet! ♥

Hey girl,
I'm stil here...lol! Still reading...
Anyway about your style and files...I love them. I could live in any of those rooms, for sure! I think maybe your style is country cottage eclectic...don't quote me on that one though. What's important is that you have a style that's your own, a home that's filled with things that make you happy, and that you are loving it...which you do...
I think you can mix it up, until it suits you. I'm like you... in that I do like alot of styles from the light and airy, to country cottage, and I'm also drawn to the darks too...and I love the victorian country look too, anything romantic style. I just try to mix in, until I it pleases my eyes.
In my living room, I put away my cottage pillows for a change, and went with my black tapestry victorian looking pillows with the floral inlay. I love so many styles...I just change things out when it strikes me. Girl, I'm crazy like that! LOL! hmmm, maybe that's why I have no closet space. Though I have to admit, I took some red floral pillows that I made and sold them at a consignment shop this month. That was a good thing. I did my cleaning out anyway! ha ha!
Hope you have a great day!
Big hug,
Queenie~

Queenie, I once lived in a house with 4 walk in closets, 2 storage rooms and a full (dry) basement! THAT was nice. Never before (or since) have I been so organized! ♥
