Lately, I’m seeing a pretty dramatic shift in the types of interiors I want to create. It is so discernible that I can actually feel this change as it’s happening. Has that ever happened to you? Well, if you’ve been following my blog for a while, you already know how I much I love the whole Scandinavian vibe. It had been building up for several years and I think it hit its peak some time last year. But since moving to Atlanta . . .
. . . I’ve noticed that I’m gravitating back toward a more bohemian style. Before that it was very French, before that, contemporary and before that, very eclectic/ethnic and before that . . . well, I’ve run through pretty much all of them. There was even a brief shabby chic period in there somewhere too. (I know!) What can I say? Like questionable fashion trends, I’ve tried them all.
I think this change has a lot to do with my new surroundings. Not that Atlanta is exactly bohemian – in fact, it’s actually very traditional, as is my new house. But I’m finding that a traditional backdrop lends itself very well to these kinds of maximalist interiors. As I said before, I don’t think the style of house has to dictate exactly how the interior is decorated but it does have some bearing.
And these are the rooms that are really appealing to me right now. There is just more of everything in these rooms: more texture, more layers, more details and especially, more color.
So all this has me wondering, does your environment influence your taste and style? And if so, how much?
Have a lovely weekend!
