How to Find Your Signature Style
Finding your “signature style” isn’t a matter of going looking for it. You won’t locate it under the sofa or at the bottom of your laundry basket. Instead, signature style is something you have to develop – it needs to evolve from your own personality, preferences and experiences. Whether you’re a painter and decorator working with a client who has a unique aesthetic, or a homeowner working on a revamp for your favourite space, taking some time to think about signature style can lead to smarter, better finishes and completed designs.
This blog from The Inspired Room is a great place to start thinking about your interior style. From tips which will help you to “bringit out” in your home, to discussion on why it makes such a difference to the warmth in a space, this is a lovely blog, full of inspiration. Thanks, Melissa!
