Keep your space interesting with a splash of color now and again. But make sure you have plenty of home storage to keep clutter at bay.

Mostly B’s: Bohemian and Worldly

You love the exotic. Traveling the world and seeing old-world design inspires your home. Chances are you get most of your home decor from your travels. An elephant statue from Sri Lanka, images of the Buddha from Nepal, or a hand-woven blanket from Peru are just a few of your favorite things. Balance your worldly adventures with basic furniture pieces in solid colors to keep your space from looking too chaotic.

Mostly C’s: Bright and Beachy

Ahhh, fresh air and sunshine. Your living space always feels light and airy. You love to fall asleep to the sound of the water. All that space means you’ll want a few throw blankets to keep your space cozy. Even if you don’t live near the water, you love a nautical-inspired theme combined with a country kitchen. You change your home decor often, but a bright, cheery feeling is the vibe you’re after.

Mostly D’s: Mid-Century 

Clean lines combined with natural materials make your home feel cozy and warm. You love to curl up with that beautiful standing lamp on your favorite leather chair with a good book. The balance of warmth and sharp lines draws you into your own space. Darker colors and deep chocolate woods create an area perfect for peace and harmony. Vintage-inspired designs bring your mid-century modern home to life.

Mostly E’s: Country Classic

Home is where the heart is and yours is centered around a hearth. Whether you live in the country or the city, you bring a rustic, outdoor vibe to your home. Flannel sheets, wooden carvings, and old farm equipment bring a smile to your face. You love to celebrate family and home with decor that signals it’s time to sit back and relax together once the dinner bell rings. After a day in the outdoors, you love nothing more than kicking off your boots and snuggling up near a cozy fire.

Overall, there’s no wrong way to decorate your home. In the end, it’s all about a direct reflection of you. Bring your favorite things into your home decor and you’ll be feeling cozy in no time.
