I. love. design. and decor. and paint. and fabric. and makeovers. and…… Well, you get the picture. Chances are, if you’re reading my blog, you do, too. 😉 I have found, though, that one of the hardest things about designing and decorating your home is not putting it all together or finding amazing pieces, it’s choosing which direction you want to go. And, if you’re like me and love it all, indecision can run rampant!
For example, I love a good industrial piece, like this vintage file cabinet in my office.
I also swoon for chippy, distressed, rustic finishes.
And a little glamor never hurt either.
With tons of white woodwork.
In our recent attic makeover, though, I found a new addiction: whitewashed planks.
Instead of crisp and clean, they’re richly textured and varied. Love.
So what’s a girl to do when she loves it all??? I recently found a great resource from Havertys: a style LookBook. It offers four main styles: Rustic, Fusion, Classic, and Sleek – all with resources to complete the look.
If you’re like me, you might fall between two. I am drawn to the sophistication of Classic, but I love the textures of Rustic.
Not only does Havertys’ LookBook offer gorgeous furnishings, I’ve found it helps to narrow down my overall style goal. For our traditional, 1940 colonial, I try to work within an overall classic framework… layering my industrial, rustic, or glamorous accents. The library (aka my office) is a perfect example. The bookshelves and gilded items mimic Havertys’ Classic Look, while the warm wood desk with chunky wooden legs echoes the Rustic room.
In our living room, my French wing backs flanking our white fireplace and traditional rug are more classic…
But my chippy antique media cabinet definitely qualifies as rustic.
So… am I the only one who likes a combination of styles? What’s your favorite?
