My Own Design Style

With today’s popularity of FarmHouse style (mostly brought on by the Fixer Upper crew – that I love!)  it has brought up lots of questions lately about personal style.  Popular styles and trends in home decor come and go, but what is most important is to remain true to what you can label as your own personal design style.  Knowing what you like is just as important, if not more so, than following the current trends.

For me, there are just certain accessories, colors, and furniture that will always be part of my own design style, whether I’m dressing it up formal, or making a room cozy and comfortable.
