What's My Style?

I guess if I had to choose a word to describe my design style, I would say it is transitional. Transitional style is somewhere between contemporary and traditional. I would say I lean more toward contemporary, but I like to add traditional pieces here and there. I enjoy mixing the two styles.
I love the contemporary elements in the above pictures--the clean lines of the Elle Decor sofa, the vases, and coral; the zebra rug, lamps, and coffee table from Alice Lane. I equally love the traditional elements like the accent chair and coffee table legs from Elle Decor. I absolutely love the sofa from Alice Lane with the nail-head edging and tufts.
I don't like matchy-matchy, and I like to mix textures and prints that are unexpected. I like a little personality in a room! My goal is to make my rooms look effortless, even though they're not! And lastly, I like my rooms to be unlike any other, to constantly evolve, and to make you say, I'd like to spend some time here!"

  1. Well that was a fun little journey! I am also on the same quest for my home, different, but really comfortable, but most of all ME! I can't wait to express myself all over the place, my place! It's so fun. Thanks again for putting this all together, I really appreciate it. It's a passion of mine too, and you've done a great job Jamie Jo!
