A lot of you are probably reading this thinking I'm a little bit nuts. So many “;experts”; out there will tell you that you can ormustdefine your interior design style in order to create a home you love. But I totally disagree. I actually think it hinders people more than it helps them. Let me explain…;

Putting a label on your interior design style or “;defining”; it often has the unintended consequence of restricting your choices. And that is one of the worst things you can do when you set out to create a home that you love and thataccuratelyreflects your style.

For example, if you define your style as “farmhouse,” you may pass up a fabulous boho style bench that youlove because it isn’t “farmhouse.” Or if I defined my style as “;industrial”; I never would have purchased the gorgeous campaign style furniture that I love so much. That’s not how I roll, nor do I recommend it. You can mix several different styles in your homerustic pillow covers, especially when you create a sense of flow through your color palette.

People ask me all the time, “What is your design style?” And you know what?! I still don’t have a good answer for that. So I typically say, “It’s eclectic. My home is full of things I love.” I have pieces in my house that are industrial. Other pieces are rustic. And others are mid-century modern. I love them all. And the reason they work together is because they are unified by the overall color palette in our home.I have designed my home without ever giving my style a definition.

Now does that mean you should just randomly pick things you love and throw them into your house without giving it any thought other than to ask yourself if you love it. NO! That will also end in disaster. You do need to think through a color palette, create a space plan that works and be sure to pick pieces that are appropriate in size and scale.

The moral of the story is this… Giving your style a definition isn’t necessary or productive. A house full of poorly scaled farmhouse decor with a hot mess of a space plan does not make it a well-designed house. Make sense?

In other words, youDO need to create a cohesive design plan.
