Decorating Style

Confession time: decorating my new house is hard.  I didn’t expect this.  I thought I knew my style and what I would want, but I’m so hesitant to pull the trigger on lots of purchases and don’t want to spend money on things that I’m not sure I’ll love in a few months.  I mean when I see things I love, I know and I buy them, but I have a big house that is pretty empty right now because I can’t explain what it is that I want.  My sister in law went shopping with me and got so frustrated because I didn’t know what I wanted.  She’s much more crafty and has an eye for decorating that I don’t have.  She would pick out tons of cute things, but I didn’t see them and think that they were me.  I finally have settled on the determination that my main colors and scheme are neutrals and metals–browns, bronze, gold, silver, leather, hides and furs.  So then I dug a little deeper and there’s actually a name for it–mountain rustic.  Obviously I don’t mean mountain or rustic like a log cabin with furniture or bedding that has bears printed on it, but mountain rustic is a cozy luxury mountain retreat type look.


I love this look.  I don’t think DG would go for the pink pillows, but fur, rug, animal print, leather and fabric is totally my jam.  Plus, we have our own elk heads like that so I think I can do something similar if I can just find the right pieces that fit me.  Maybe if you visit me in the next few years I’ll get there. 😉
