Over the years my style has evolved and changed. Being a creative mind who loves to try new colors, textures and design I've never lived with one style for too long. I have had everything from Contemporary, Country, Traditional to Victorian. My love for the last 5 years has been French Country. In the last year though, I feel a new change is here, again...
I have always had a love of colors. Many colors have been in my home over the years. Purples, mauve with mint green, (I know, don't hold it against me) peach, sage green, maroon, teal/black (hmm...what was I thinking?) cobalt blue, butter yellow the list could go on and on. Yet out of all of these colors, the colors I seem to be most drawn to and still am, are blues, reds and greens. I have found varying shades I love in each hue. They are my favorite. I still continue to decorate my home with these colors.
As I said earlier, a new change is here...again. I feel pulled and drawn to the soft, muted but clean look of blue grays, soft pinks, creamy whites, with pops of turquoise, cherry reds and apple greens. I realized as I put this post together, that even though I design in clients homes and define a style for them...I have yet been able to put a name for my new style. How can this be? Well this might explain why...
I love Cottage, Vintage, Swedish, Coastal, a little Shabby Chic, Elegant, Romantic, still some French Country and of course Whimsy. Wow! There are elements about each of these styles that call to me. This is why I am having a hard time defining my style.
So what do you all think? I would love to hear your thoughts to help define my style's name? Being that my creative mind is in so many directions at the moment, I am having a "What's my style" block! Is that such a thing? It is now.
We will be moving soon (waiting for orders from the Air Force) and I am looking forward to once again creating and designing in my new home. Here are some photos that are inspirational to me for the style I want to create...

Pops of turquoise, soft pinks and glass.
Love how airy and bright this feels.
Pleated skirts, sisal rug, hardwood floors,
gingham reds, stripes and canvas baskets...

You know how I love plates on the walls!
Again the pop of red in the floral fabric
Floral fabric with soft pinks, cherry red, and hints of baby blue for pillows with a gingham red and white piping (This is some of the fabric I posted on here about Tanya Whelan...one of my favorite designers!) Dupioni silk in muted lettuce green, striped blue grays and whites, plaids, pops of turquoise (adding Whimsy) and slipcovers done in a creamy white matelasse fabric. Adding accessories with Glass, distressed wood,canvas, linen, burlap and lots of little birdies .
Can't wait to move and create the vision...and hopefully have a name for my style.
Oh, one more thing...
