Past

If you are drawn to the past when you look at pieces, you should consider a few different options. Contemporary design will transport you back to the 1960s. This design includes styles that cover the latter half of the 20th century. The pieces you will find in contemporary design use more soft and curved lines that are in direction opposition to the more harsh lines you will see in modern design. French Country design communicates romance and elegance with elegantly curved furniture. It typically includes design elements such as ruffles, distressed woodwork, and mixed patterns. Traditional design is full of classic lines and comfortable furniture. Due to its combination of design items from various centuries, this style will allow you to feel comfortable and elegant at the same time.

Present

People who are drawn to more current design styles may appreciate looks from modern design, Scandinavian design, or even eclectic design. Modern design usually consists of ultra-clean lines and minimalism. Rooms that follow this design technique tend to adhere to strict rules regarding balance and clean lines. Scandinavian design uses a lot of warm woods and area rugs. It is primarily characterized by the minimalism and functionality which are exhibited in pieces crafted from this design standpoint. Eclectic design is just as the name suggests, a rejection of traditional design and a chance to create your own aesthetically appealing room. This style allows you to choose which textures, time periods, and styles you wish to bring together to create a room that is uniquely yours.

Your Personality

When you think about yourself, would you describe yourself as someone who likes to take risks, or prefers to play it safe? If you are not a risk taker, then you should consider decorating with neutral tones that will be easier to look at and live with for a longer period of time. Bright colors are pretty and trendy, but unless you are willing to change your entire room with each fashion trend, then decorating with more traditional tones and neutral shades are the route that you should choose. Ultimately, your living room furniture and all the pieces that you place in the room should reflect your personality since this is your room, not a showroom. If you feel comfortable and happy in this space, then you have succeeded in identifying your design style!
