What Style is Your Home Interior?

[ Edited ]

I have an English Country and Traditional style home interior but I must admit to be Eclectic (mixed styles) at times. 

 

I basically love everything to be super-cozy and pretty and I love a very neat home. 

 

Do you have a favorite interior style? What interior style is your home?

 

Here is a sample:

I have an eclectic style - family antiques and more modern pieces mixed.  I would say I have a cozy cottage with lots of color.

I like so many different things/styles, that I purposely chose not to lock myself into one particular style when choosing how to decorate my house. 

 

I do see homes where there is a very constant style, color scheme etc throughout a home, and it is lovely when done that way.

 

I just really like several different styles, wanted to enjoy buying what I loved (and sometimes you have to pass up things you find and love, because they aren't in the 'style' of your decor/home) and so I made different parts of the house reflect different feelings/periods/styles. 

 

The family room is more country/primitive. There is mission oak, hand stitched samplers on the walls, kind of a barn siding (painted) feel to the walls. etc. 

 

The master and guest bedrooms are very feminine with slight Victorian touches. Vintage Rose quilt patterns, lace curtains etc. 

 

My son's old room is rather masculine, with mission oak furniture, tans and browns, and lacks a lot of the 'fru fru' the other two bedrooms have.

 

The main level of the house has a lot of antique oak pieces (and a couple of reproductions made to look from that era) but neutral upholstered furniture walls floor coverings etc. to not make it as Victorian or feminine as the wood furniture would lead one to believe it should be.

 

Sometimes I think a single style is more calming and serene in a home, but I love the variety and the interest of different layers of style. 

 

The one thing that is constant is the fact that every room in the house has a Tiffany style lamp somewhere . I find them to be perfect for just about any style.

My home is eclectic , cottage style though I own a number of antique mission style pieces. I'm more interested in home being cozy, warm and comfortable than having it be all perfectly decorated.

One thing I do not like is shabby chic. Shabby is just not my style. Peeling paint - worn out fabrics etc do not appeal to me.I prefer restoring an antique to it's original beauty just as the artisan who made it would want it to be.

@151949  While you have a right to your opinion, I think it could have been stated in a much more graceful way. For you to blatantly state you do not like Shabby Chic is insulting to anyone who might say this is their favorite interior style and I might add, that Shabby Chic is and has been very popular for a long time. And, you will note, that my bedding is Shabby Chic. 

 

This post is entitled What is Your Favorite Interior Style.....I did NOT ask for what you do not like.

@Regal Bee . Is that a photo of one of your bedrooms?  I think it's beautiful and lovely!  I like shabby chic...it can be very romantic but with most styles it has to be done right.

 

My house is a mix of traditional and contemporary. 

 

I do have a dream of having a shabby chic styled beach cottage.  It would be rght on the beach (like the one on the show Frankie & Grace) with a big porch & patio, lots of comfy furniture and a large farmhouse styled kitchen.

What ever your style is, @Regal Bee, I adore it.

 

My style would probably qualify as "knick knacks on steroids" but in a very, very orderly fashion. LOL!!!!!!
