Something I love about the Cyber World of decor, is how it has helped me find my style. While it’s so easy to see a picture you like, and just copy what someone else has done, it doesn’t always work for you and your home. When we bought this home, we downsized by 900 sq ft. We still have 4 bedrooms, because I wanted a room for each son when they come home. We did lose a formal living room and formal dining room. Honestly, I don’t miss either one.
Our home in the country was decorated very farmhouse and country. It fit the style of the home and the area of the home. We did live right in front of a cotton field. Then, we moved to a larger town and a more traditional home. Again, I altered my decor to fit the home. I went much more traditional and a little bit Tuscan. Which brings me to our current home.
This home has a cottage feel to me. I love that. My heart has always gravitated toward cottage, shabby, french country, and now a little bit of farmhouse style. I guess I let the house sort of dictate my style. Since we were buying a new build, I was able to follow the style that I feel is my true style.
I am still changing things up a little bit, but with each room, and each change (or mistake) I am feeling like this is home. Here are a few photos of our home so you can see my current style.
This is our kitchen. I love the big island, the white cabinets and the black glass subway tile back splash. That’s one of the reasons I am using a lot of simple black and white decor.
