What's your style and how can you express your style at home? Decorating becomes so fun and simple when you let your personality guide the way. Here are few tips for finding your decorating style. Your favorite place can inspire your decorating choices. You might translate that ocean-side vacation into a beach-style living room or fun memories of grandma's farm might inspire a country-style kitchen. Your wardrobe can provide mini clues about decorating. If you're fearless about wearing pattern and color, use them in your room décor. Are your clothes eclectic, romantic, classic? Translate the look into your furnishing and accessories. Turn to nature for decorating inspiration. Choose colors and textures from the outdoors and use them in large swatches. Consider the mood you want to create. If you want the space to energize you, try bold hues and dramatic shapes. Do you want your home to calm you? Choose muted colors and soft snuggly textures. Perhaps the most important tip is the simplest one. If you really love it, it will work. When you decorate with the things you love, you'll end up with a home that's personal and perfect for you.
