With so many different styles, such as modern, Victorian, Asian, country-specific, Gothic, Mediterranean, etc., being popular these days, people often get confused deciding which one suits their temperament and liking. So, here are some useful tips for determining your favorite decorating style, which are sure to help you out. Let's have a look...
Tip # 2
In the last few years, you must have visited homes of your friends, family and acquaintances. So, is there any particular house or room, whose décor you still remember? Think about the restaurants or hotels that you visit often.
Tip # 3
Check out your closet. What do you see in there mostly? Jeans and t-shirts or skirts, blouses, formal dresses? Well, if you like to be in your jeans for most of the days, it shows that you prefer a comfortable, casual style.
Tip # 5
For the last few years, which all holiday destinations have you been to? Do you prefer the mountains, the seaside or the countryside? Do you prefer to go to places which have a rich history and culture or do you like to go to modern cities? This will give you an insight into the kind of interior decoration that you want.
If you like seaside, go for Mediterranean décor and if you prefer rural life, opt for rustic décor. Or, if there is a favorite country that you visit often like Italy, France or Spain, you can consider decorating your entire home after it! Italian, French, Swiss, Swedish, Japanese, Mexican and Moroccan interior decorating styles are very popular these days!
Tip # 6
Analyze yourself. Are you a laid back person who does not like to spend much of his time in the upkeep of the house? Or, are you someone who likes to keep his house spic and span, come what may? This will help you decide what kind of furniture and fabrics to opt for.
For instance, leather sofas are easier to maintain than those that are covered with upholstery. Similarly, curtains as well as window treatments need to be washed after every few months, while blinds and shutters can last for years without any maintenance and care!
With these tips, now you won't have any problem deciding on the décor for your home interiors. You can choose any specific style or mix and match a few, to come up with your own! It's absolutely your choice in the end. So, be creative and have fun, decorating your home!
