Can you find one picture that sums up your design style? This is the challenge I issued a few months ago. (If you’re new to my blog, you can read the original challengeÂ here.)
Well, when I saw this room recently, I practically started hyperventilating. I don’t think you could possibly fit one more thing that I love into this picture:
painting in a gilt frame
that armoire which I professed my love for before
the tulip table which I also wrote about before
Bertoias – one of my favorite chairs. I know. I have a lot of favorite chairs.
This room is so perfect for me that I decided it had to be my new “one picture.”Â And then this got me thinking: I’m sure those of you who participated in the first challenge have come across new rooms that could describe your style and maybe your styles have even changed since then. So . . . I decided I’m going to issue this challenge once every season. That’s right, you can now torture yourself four times a year! [I'm talking to you, Lauren!]
And if you’re new to all this, what say ye all? Are you up to the challenge? Can you find one picture that says “you?” It can be kind of painful but it’s so much fun.
NEW WAY TO PARTICIPATE
To do a better job of gathering these posts this time, I’ve added a handy dandy new feature. Yup, we’re gettin’ all fancy up in here now.
Here’s what you do:
- Post your one picture on your blog with a link back to this challenge.
- Add your name and the permalink to your post (not your general blog address) in the form below.
- You can give your picture a description in parentheses after your blog name if you like. For example:
Alek (white modern glam)
And that’s it. Just make sure your link goes to the right page so it won’t get deleted.Â You can add your link anytime and if you’ve done this little exercise recently, feel free to add it now.
I’ll also be keeping a list of all the participants (with a link) under the “What’s Your Style” Challenge photo in the column on the right and it’ll stay there the whole season. [Update: Sorry but apparently I'm too incompetent to make this happen. I hope you won't mind too terribly that the list will remain on this page only.]
Okay, everyone ready? Go find your picture! I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
