The best home interior design style

We all have different styles. Fashion, hair and home interior design styles are as unique as our fingerprints.

Iris Apfel represents Hunter Douglas because they both share the passion for timeless design and individual style.  Iris has her unique style, and I love her for it!  As a Hunter Douglas Specialist, I have enjoyed learning about her style and work.

Your style is a representation of who you are, your preferences, your likes and dislikes and your mood.

Layers of personality

As it is with fashion, home décor and home interior design shouldn’t be about the latest trends.

Always keep true to what makes you feel good, what you love, your history and your dreams.

If you like a new trend, it’s okay to incorporate bits of it into your home.  Make sure you’re filling your home with with layers of you and your family’s personality.

Also, I’ve provided a link to a quiz on the Psychologies website that will help you discover your decorating personality. It’s fun to see the quiz results because they may be different than you think.

Again, you won’t be asked for your email address to get your answers.

New Trend On the Block

As always, there’s a new home interior design trend on the block, and this one is fascinating!

The trend is called Maximalism! I didn’t even know that was a word.

Maximalism is the concept of “more-is-more.” It’s a mismatch of color, a mixture of patterns, and layers of texture and period. Phew! That’s a lot of stuff!

Just like this picture is full of contrasting prints and patterns, maximalism is a far cry from the “empty white space” of the minimalism trend.

The style that is always “IN” is you!

So, how do you find the best home interior design?  I’m sure you’ve already figured out where I am going with this.

Look inside yourself for your preferences, needs, personality and your family.  It’s all about you!  It doesn’t matter what other people are doing.

Iris Apfel wouldn’t still be making an impact at age 96 if she settled for anything less than herself.
