Hi everyone! I’m Jamie from So Much Better With Age and I’m so excited Rachel asked me to be a guest on her blog today!

Rachel and I are always saying to each other how similar are styles are. You might remember that we hosted ‘Give Me The Goods’ link party every Monday and we always fought over the same features. We just have the same fabulous taste 😉

So in keeping with that, I thought I’d share my style with you today.

My style is Industrial Beachy French and I’ll show you how you can find your exact style too.

Sometimes you think your style has to fit in a certain category like Traditional, Contemporary, Eclectic. Well, it doesn’t. I’ve always loved French decor, vintage stuff, industrial, coastal…see that’s a lot of styles. I’ve put them altogether and added my own flare to it. I made up this term:
Industrial Beachy French
Basically it encompasses all the things I love.
In a nutshell, I love French Vintage. Yep, that’s totally me. But sometimes that can be a little vague. French to some people can mean reds and golds or even blues and yellows from the South of France.
To me it means neutral colors, worn linens, and wire baskets.
So every time I want to add something to my home I remind myself of the styles I love and see if it matches. I’ve even made myself a little ‘cheat sheet’.

With that list it makes it easy when I want to buy something I can look at it and ask myself if it’s Industrial, Beachy or French.
If not, then I don’t buy it!

Throughout my living room, you can see touches of Beachy with pieces of driftwood, roped covered vases, sea shells.

You can also see a lot of Industrial like my old crocks, radio, and fan.

And I think it’s easy to spot the French items such as the architectural objects, curvy chairs and table, and baskets.

I’ve done a lot of styling with my bookshelves and I even did a post on my living room source guide.

And sometimes I switch things up in my living room and add this ottoman that I slipcovered. I made this ruffly slipcover and will have to post a tutorial soon but it’s very similar to the ruffled tablecloth I made.

So what do you think? You think you can make up your own style?? What’s your style?

Really, all you have to do is make it up! Think of general styles or things you love and put them together. How easy is that?
