Rachel Ashwell has “Shabby Chic,” Amy Butler has “Midwest Modern,” and Chris Brown has “Urban Prairie“ but what would you call my style if you were picking the name?
Wylie said it is “antique-ish” and then went on to talk about how Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma make things to look like antiques even though they aren’t. Where does he come up with this stuff. I wonder.
Nathan’s suggestion was “Found Comfort” which I like because I do find things, and our house is comfy – or at least I hope it is!
I came up with “County Fair ” because of the patchwork I tend to create between homespun, vintage, thrifted, salvaged and brand-spanking-new things. Sort of like a quilt. And because of the color. My style has a lot of color, but slightly faded, like a fair tent.
Jeanetta liked “Homefront Vintage” because it speaks to my fav era of color and textile design – the WWII and immediately post WWII eras.
So if you were naming my style what would you call it? Do you like any of the ideas above? Have a whole new one that I haven’t even thought of?
What do you call your design style or do you even think about these sorts of things?
I would LOVE to know…
