3 Tips For Determining Your Style

Decide what you don’t like

It can be difficult to know what you like and why, but it is often easier to identify what you don’t love. Use this to your advantage and eliminate styles you know you don’t like.

Create a Pinterest board or two

Pinterest is a great place to go for interior decorating inspiration. It is also a great place to start when trying to determine your interior decorating style. Start by creating a Pinterest board and save things that you would love to have in your home. You could include a color palette, furniture, artwork, or other home accents. Next, look for patterns. You might find you like white kitchens and dark wood furniture. Or maybe you everything you saved has a minimalist vibe.

Take an online quiz

If all else fails and you are still not sure about your interior design style, you can take a quiz. There are tons of different quizzes online, but these two are the best.
