4. Look for common threads―design, colors, shapes, materials, vibe―among the things you treasure. See which of the styles pictured here your picks most jibe with. You may find yourself attracted to a blend of styles rather than just one; as you delve into the following rooms, note which features appeal to you. This will help you translate your taste into smart decorating choices.

A blend of styles is what describes my tastes. Design wise, I tend to gravitate towards sleek, clean lines for the main pieces of the room then I like exotic details and retro glam pieces as accents to the room. 

Some common colors are bright blue, dark brown, silver, white-basically Santorini


Common shapes-beside squares-are exotic details such as carvings and embroidery.

At least now I have some additional adjectives and clearer direction when I go shopping or describe my style to another. It depends on it the item is a large piece, like a sofa, that will stay in the room, or an accent piece that can be rotated out on a whim.

What is your style?
