Jake and I have strong opinions when it comes to home decoration. Correction, we have strong opinions about other people's decor. We have NO idea what our own style is.
I'm fairly certain our house will be a blank canvas. Blank because Jake hates knick knacks. Blank because I have a fear of commitment when it comes to artwork. Blank because our decor budget falls extremely low on our list of priorities (but this stay-at-home mom won't complain about that! reality check: yes I will, but please remind me that it's one of the sacrifices I've made to spend my time with the Haze.).
Ok, so HGTV let me down, but my favorite magazine, Real Simple, was there to save the day! This month they have an article entitled "What's Your Decorating Style". Hoorah!
The choices are:
- Sophisticated Classic (my friend, Whitney, who I've discussed numerous times. I LOVE her house and her style, but after reading this article, I agree that it might be too pretty and elegant for me and my yoga pant wardrobe!)
- Modern Graphic (my bro-in-law, Josh. He's trendy in a non dorky way and can rock the modern decor without looking like a pauper or a fraud.)
- Vintage Eclectic (Cynthia's mom. The lady's Victorian house is the perfect mix of antiques, function, and fresh air. Just thinking about her reminds me that I desperately need to make the time to stop by and have a visit.)
- Cozy Casual (ME! Jake and I immediately agreed on this one. Not surprisingly, Pottery Barn falls under this category)
