Your own personal decorating voice, or style, is similar in many ways to your style of dress. When shopping for clothing and accessories you think about:
- putting the outfit together from head to toe
For some people everything just seems to come together
they know what they like and they know how to create a look that is uniquely their own, whether it s a clothing style or the look of their home interior. Do you know someone like that? Their house is really cool, their wardrobe is creative, they probably have the perfect hair style, too.
Many people that I meet, though, don t find the home decorating style question quite so easy to answer. When I ask them about their style, I get that deer in the headlights look. They really don t know what they like, or if they do have a feel for the look, they don t know how to describe it.
And, spending $200 on an outfit is a little different than forking over $5,000 on furniture mistakes can be very, very costly. No one wants to be in the position of having to tear up the carpet, order a new sofa, take down the new window treatments, etc. You may know that feeling well, no worries!
