How To Choose An Interior Style That Suits You
Boho chic, minimalist, contemporary. If all these design terms are lost on you and you can’t quite decide which style works best for you, then don’t worry you’re not the only one. Some people like a nice mix, some get bored and are always looking to change their interiors. There are some easy, simple ways to figure out an interior design style which speaks to you and which you feel fits with your personality. Read on to know how to.
Start the old school way. The only way to know what appeals to you is by researching. Look up pictures of different kinds of designs, save the pictures . The internet is full of ideas. You can even consult some design books. Once you have a healthy sized gallery of these pictures, or have a dream board ready, you’ll definitely notice a pattern. Getting some samples of things which appealed to you might also help you understand your sense of style better.
For example, if you think pastel shades really appeal to you, get some swatches so you know what they look and feel like in your house. Notice that maybe some themes will stand out more.
Be open to exploring them. For example if you like some elements of a minimalist design, but not the whole look, then research more minimalist interiors, you might find something that resonates with you sense of style.
CONSULT A PROFESSIONAL
Talking to an interior designer is also a great idea. They can give you great insight about the latest trends and patterns, show you their portfolio and you can gauge a little of what you like.

A good interior designer will also be able to tell what design you would be comfortable with by asking you a few basic questions like your colour preference, the current interiors of your house, the kind of things you like. They can create a unique mix of all the things you like, especially if you feel that your sense of style doesn’t fit into the already existing labels.
CAN YOU LIVE WITH IT
Sure you can change your home interiors and nothing is cast in iron, but this is an essential question to ask yourself. Once you have an idea about what you like and what kind of design you would like to introduce in your house, you have to envision living in your space. Will you be comfortable with the colours, the furniture, the way the house has been done up? Be realistic and honest. Redecorating your house is expensive and tiring.
While choosing your interior style you might get carried away with the latest trends and designs, this is why don’t hurry the process. For example, bright colours look great in pictures, but they’re not for everybody o live with everyday. The colours and things you surround yourself with must match your personality type, or you will dread your own space, and nobody wants that.
