Whats Your Style?

Often, whether it is buying a home, remodeling or just decorating, we are asked by professionals “What is your style?”.  Some people blurt out what they think is the answer and others honestly admit that they just are not sure.  Knowing the answer can help the professionals develop a plan that you will definitely enjoy for years to come and will compliment your existing property.

There are so many terms out there when describing design; contemporary, traditional, English garden, cottage, modern, art deco etc. etc. etc.  You can visit sites like HGTV to  get a better understanding of design elements, see samples and even take a quiz.

It is not a big deal if you don’t have the slightest clue, in fact even if you do know your design style, I have a simple tip.  Always carry a camera or use the camera on your cell phone to develop an album of the styles that “you” like.   Your style may be a combination of a few styles, and that is just fine.  This little bit of individualism will let you stand out against the “cookie cutters” Nothing can be more boring than seeing  every one’s homes all appearing to have been put together by one person.

Add this album to a collection of pictures cut out from various magazines, along with notes referencing textures, colors and materials

Now when you decide to have the front of your home landscaped, you know what you want and more importantly, so does your landscaper.  Yes, you may still have to modify your your plans a bit, but it will be done with minimum stress and you will end up with a completed project that will let you say “WOW”.

Go ahead and Feng Shui your lakefront home with a little bit of traditional modernism, dusted with a nautical waterfront theme, planted in the middle of flowery garden cottage lot.

    Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks
