defining your style, our home tour

For so many years living in the same home, our style has changed dramatically. As people grow and change, so should your home. Just as you wouldn't wear the same style of clothes for 18 years! 

During the past couple years, I have been working hard at DEFINING our current style. The first reason is because, well, I'm kind of a design dork. And the second reason is because I think it is important and does make a difference as you purchase things and add to your home, whether it be for seasonal decor, new furniture purchases, or liking the latest pillow you see at Target. 

Try to add a word or words to what your style is. You may need to browse Pinterest. Or does someone you know have a style that you love and would like to emulate in your own home? I have several blogger friends that I admire, but none have the exact style I love. I love pieces of what they have, and when put together in my home it looks totally different....which is good! 

Each person and each family is different, being unique is a good thing. So to define OUR style and home, I think of 3 words.



With each pillow I bring in, each new sofa I may be interested in purchasing, or that rug that is on sale....I try to fit it into at least one of these categories. 

And when re-designing one of our spaces in our home (or outside), making sure it has these 3 elements will complete our signature look. The home flows from one room to the next, I want them all to seem put together. Sometimes I can't figure out why I don't love a certain space....but standing back and thinking about what style it has...maybe it might be missing that Earthy element such as a plant or something else from nature. Maybe it's missing something tribal such as feathers or a fun pattern, or maybe it's just missing that vintage farmhouse piece that makes a room cozy.  

I thought that I'd share a small tour of what our home looks like currently....























 



I've been leaning toward very neutral lately as you can see. Colors from nature...brown, black, white, cream, green, and blue are my favorites and make our home restful. 

So, I rather like the words earthy tribal farmhouseBut also welcoming cozy home! So go ahead and try to name your style, or ask others what they think your style is. I think having a home that reflects you and your purpose is just as important as the clothes you wear or the food you eat. 

I hope you enjoyed this updated mini home tour, things are ALWAYS changing around here, and I hope to share more tours with each big change of season. 
And follow along more of what we like on Pinterest or our day to day happenings on Instagram or Facebook
