On the way home Jake was driving and I was bored so I started reading email on my phone and I came across an email that I received from Houzz and I realized that I have to share Houzz with you. If you like Pinterest (especially the DIY and home decor categories, like me) you will also like Houzz (www.houzz.com). It's a website dedicated to home design and it's awesome. You can create an account and design Ideabooks using tons of photos from designers. I've noticed that a lot of the photos that turn up here turn up on Pinterest too, and vice versa. Here's one photo I have on my Pinterest board that I also saw on Houzz:
Isn't that just the cutest idea?
But anyways, I digress. What caught my eye today was this post here about finding your design style. I realize that I haven't really defined what my design style is, and I'm still not 100% sure. There are elements of almost all design styles that I like, but this post helped point me in a direction. The style I'm most drawn to is "cottage" which is described in this article as being "cheerful, laid back, and welcoming, cottage style feels like a giant hug." Yea, I can go for that.
These examples of cottage are right up my alley (all images courtesy of Houzz):
If I could mix a little "eclectic" with the cottage, I think that might just be perfect. How about you? what's your design style?
