You decide: your home, your style

Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak. —Rachel Zoe

What is style? Many people associate the word with trendy and fashionable things. In truth, style is a way of presenting your personality through design, whether it’s furniture, art, or otherwise. Unlike trends that come and go, style can make a lasting statement. 

Home is what you want it to be

Your home should be a reflection of you! Don’t be pressured into trying out the latest home design fads. Focus on what you enjoy seeing every day, not what a designer says you should have. The end goal of “Home Design” is to make you feel like you’re at home. If you love bright blue walls or fun shapes in your selections, then you should feel confident in making those selections.

Consider the four fundamental “f”s 

As you’re considering what to choose for a house that feels like home, it may be helpful to have a few guiding suggestions. In the world of architecture, many folks follow a list of fundamentals called “the four f’s.”

They are:

  • Function-Does the house function for what you need it to do?
  • Form-Is it a pleasing structure?
  • Flow-Do the rooms flow well into one another?
  • Furnishability-Can you furnish it easily?

For example, if you have kids, you might want a house that functions well in terms of having space for the little ones (like a separate side of the house for them) or incorporating kid-friendly life hacks and amenities like a mud room or dedicated laundry room. If you like to entertain, you might be more concerned with having a show-stopping room for entertaining. Work at home? You might enjoy a space with a peaceful flow in tune with nature outdoors. Older folks with heirloom furniture may gravitate towards a house designed around their furnishings. 

It’s okay to blend styles

Have you been dreaming of a Modern exterior with a farmhouse interior? Go for it! Don’t be afraid to mix and match contrasting styles. Or blend different but complementary styles like a Rustic exterior and a Coastal finish interior for a casual look inside and out.
