Interior Design Styles:
The Rules and How To Break Them

Interior design stylesAll too often homeowners, in an attempt to redecorate or refresh their homes, will run out and purchase several beautiful pieces they love, put them all in a room together but somehow the look just isn't quite what they had envisioned. It's a common mistake thinking that all of the things you like will magically give your home a magazine-quality look.

A better way to accomplish your goal, short of hiring a designer to shop for you (a great idea in itself), is to know your design style, understand the principal elements of that style and recognize pieces that work well together by considering scale and color. Once you have an understanding of those rules, you can learn how to successfully break them to create your own signature look.
