Finding Your Personal Style: {Interior Decor}

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with home decor.

Well, actually, I’ve always been a little obsessed. As a kid my favourite show was Trading Spaces, and even now, whenever I can watch TV it’s most likely on some type of home decorating show (The Property Brothers, Love It Or List, Leave it to Bryan, House Hunters…I love them all!). I also tried to convince my parents to let me redesign certain rooms in our house (it never happened but I still liked to plan it) and went through a phase where I seriously thought  I was going to make curtains for a living. Even just a couple days ago I was saying I should have went into interior design.

For me, the appeal comes from seeing how things are brought together visually to create something that is specific to someone’s personal style. So I thought I’d share some gorgeous images I found that really reflect my style.

I’m not sure I like the kitchen in the above image, but I’m in love with all the wall art and pillows. It’s just so interesting and different from what I’m used to seeing, but still clean and visually appealing. I don’t like when things are too simple. I like to keep it unique and fresh.

Loving the rustic feel with all the pretty items here. I’m definitely more of a rustic girl when it comes to interior decor. I like character and personality in design. When things are too modern it just doesn’t catch my eye. Again, totally a personal style thing!

What’s your personal taste when it comes to interior decor? Simple, rustic, bold? I’d love to know!

Hope everyone’s week is off to a good start. I’ll be back with more soon (hint: I”m on a super health kick right now, so I’ll be sharing some of my favourite healthy recipes. Can’t wait!)

oh p.s. still looking for guest bloggers if anyone is interested! For more info, read this post

    My mom only watched HGTV whenever we had TV time, so I was really into all the home decorating shows (and House Hunters!) I also love that 4th picture; I could see it fitting in with my style aesthetic if there was a giant phonograph in the corner and some crazy modern art on the wall.

    I don’t know what you would call my decor preference- maybe a bit Mediterranean? I draw a lot of inspiration from magazines/the web, but I don’t have the same eye for it as I do putting an outfit together, for example. I need a little help! Haha. :)
