Deciding Between Styles


Interior design is all about choices. Collecting the things you love, editing out what doesn't work in a room, while pervading your overall style throughout your home. I think one of the biggest challenges that people face is deciding what style they want to commit to. Here's my current dilemma:

Do I want my style to be...

I love the look of minimalistic interior design - but I feel like it's such a limiting commitment sometimes! But then again, it's so sleek, simple, sexy...

However easy it may seem to stay a minimalist, I find the restriction to be A LOT more difficult.

I mean... what if I want to buy a pink metallic gnome figurine?!?!

So that's why I've decided that my style would be a mix of both. Minimalistic meets eclectic. Is it possible? I think so.

I love to use a modern and simple color palate of black and white as my base, make sure the large pieces in a room have simple lines and then mix in fun and eclectic accessories. A pop of color here and there is a fun and easy way to change things up after a few months go by.

What are your design challenges in your home? Do you feel limited by your previous choices sometimes?
