HOW DO YOU KNOW THE DIFFERENCE?

Dayka and I were having a discussion the other day about different design styles.

We were debating about what makes a space traditional, eclectic, contemporary, etc...


We thought that it was a good idea to see other views on the topic.

What would you say makes a space traditional, contemporary, eclectic, modern-vintage-glam (Dayka's style!)? And, what would you say your style is?

I'm too busy swooning over that first room to answer your question. I NEED that curved sofa. I REALLY NEED it! ;)(with a pleated back, please!)

Ah-hem. Oh, boy. the truth is my style is I only have singular items I am obsessed with... and I don't worry about the definition fitting into anything. And I agree, that first room is lovely...

Yes, that first room is just too much! (in a good way!) It's hard to label a style with a single word or phrase, and then to expect everyone to picture a similar style when mentioning that word. Perhaps this is why the phrase "a picture is worth a thousand words" exists. Janell

What an interesting conversation! Isn't it great to have a decorating buddy, someone you can talk "shop" with?
I don't know what makes a specific design style. I just google decorating styles and study pictures from HOUZZ {where they're categorized}.
I recently took a design quiz and came up with transitional style. I think it was accurate. Please excuse the shameless plug for my blog, but I'll include the link to that post. Have a good week!
