Your decor style is a visual representation of things you love and make your home come alive. There are so many design styles to choose from, such as modern, traditional, transitional, farmhouse and so on. But how do you determine what style is best for you and your home? 

FIND YOUR STYLE

The pieces in your home should tell a story of who you are. When looking for inspiration, it's natural to begin your search on Pinterest and decor magazines.  Narrowing down a personal style can be overwhelming because we tend to gravitate to more than one design style. Here are a few easy starting points. Find images that speak to you and what you are envisioning for your space. This could be images of movies, nature, fashion, etc. Soon you will see a theme forming.
Modern luxe design is the art of combining clean modern pieces with luxurious textures and fabrics. This design board was created for a client who wants clean lines, bold statements, and has a love for fashion. For this dining room, the style I envisioned was classy, elegant, and chic. This image of a contrasting black and ivory dress became the inspiration and the concept behind the framed artwork.

A TOUCH OF UNEXPECTED

When it comes to design, I like to include an unexpected element. Sometimes this can be in the form of contrasting colors or a furniture piece from a completely different style. On this occasion, I liked the juxtaposition of the modern lucite chair against the wooden texture of the dining table, or contrasting patterns like these pillows below. Don't be afraid to play with unexpected pairings. The piece you least expect may be the one to reflect your personal style and change the entire look of the space.

TEXTURES

 
A modern space can sometimes feel cold but using textures such as the brass chandelier combined with the wood of the dining table allows this room to feel warm and inviting.
