What type of decor style would you say is yours? Are you contemporary, traditional, farmhouse, shabby chic, maybe? What about your favorite season? Is it warm spring, hot summer, cool fall, cold winter? Different people have different tastes when it comes to interior decor, because it's quite a personal preference. There’s no right or wrong answer when it comes to design styles, but there are some simple rules that you should be following no matter what your taste is. For example, keep it to one or two decor styles, and make sure they are complementary. Traditional looks great with a few country touches. Contemporary decor pairs well with modern. And shabby chic and farmhouse style are a match made in heaven. And no matter what, there's a style for every season.
A Home For All Seasons: What's Your Decor Style?
Envisioning the colder months at home have us wrapped up in blankets, piled on top of pillows and enveloped in the warm scent of vanilla sugar (ok maybe that's my vision, but it still sounds good, eh?). The bedroom is the easiest to transform from season to season, thanks to the bed being the focal point of the room. Gorgeous comforter sets in different fabrics and styles make any type of decor style work.

The bathroom is the one place in the house that makes me think of spring all year round, and it's probably because of the water element. A neutral color scheme allows for colorful accessories in the bath year round, too, and spring makes me think of sage green and buttery yellow straight away. Natural elements like wicker, jute, bamboo, stone and wood complete a bathroom with a spa-like feeling. And who doesn't love a spa-like bath, with sleek fixtures and well appointed accessories? Not this girl, that's for sure.

As we head toward warmer weather, the desire to have your home light, bright and airy should be growing. We know that during the the winter you’re going to want to create a warm and inviting atmosphere, which often means that the decor is a little darker, a little heavier. However, if you want to lighten things up, it's time for brighter decor.
Opting for a minimalist style in your home for the summer is also an excellent idea; studies show that clutter and untidiness create stress that you don’t need in your life when the sun is shining; using storage units you can downsize your home quickly without having to sell everything first. Benefit from a minimalist home and decide later what items you want to keep.

If there's one season and one room I could spend all my time in, it'd be fall in my country kitchen. I just love the colors of fall (like, who doesn't?) and they work so well with country or farmhouse decor. A "modern" country kitchen (that is, one from this century) should have neutral color palette of whites, creams and light grays, with natural hard surfaces such as wood and granite. Beadboard, shiplap and wainscotting add an old-timey country look to any kitchen. And a kitchen faucet in rubbed bronze over an exposed apron sink is not a bad touch, either. How gorgeous of a backdrop does this sound for all things autumn?
