My Decorating Style…
The other day as I was ogling over some side tables I would like for my bedroom redo, I was thinking about how my decorating style has changed. Just over 12 years ago when I was a few years out of college and moving into my first all my own apartment. This was the first time I got to decorate “how I wanted”. At that time shabby chick was becoming popular and I really liked it. That year for my birthday I got money and I used it to buy a antique metal frame bed. This would be the staple piece I would design my whole apartment around. Now I liked this style for a very long time till about 6 months ago when I realized this style was not what I wanted any more.

I like to read decorating magazines, go on decorating sights and watching decorating shows. This is where I got inspiration (along with my parents couch I had inherited) for my new style. The style I really liked was or really were two styles are 60’s modern/ Hollywood glam. When you are changing your style or just starting out, you first need to pick the style or color pallet you want to use.

If you have no idea or are having trouble deciding, a good place to get inspiration is by looking at pictures of other people’s rooms in there house (Some sight I like for this are Apartment Therapy and Pinterest). After you have decided what style you like, it is important to pin point what will be your fist staple purchase. Now for me I already had a original 60’s modern couch that was my parents. So luckily I did not having to buy this. Once I picked my new style I decided I want a new bed. I poured over tons of home store web sights till I landed on a bed on West Elm.

My new bed is in the 60’s style. I have a dresser that for now goes fine. I also bought a new desk that is in the Hollywood regency style. Now I just need a chair to go with it. I have two I like and I can’t decide between them. Which one do you like? I need help picking. Now that you have ideas to help you pick your style. Go and have fun and happy picking!
