Interpreting Style

You can tell a lot about a person by the way they dress and that’s usually translated into their home. If you like to wear a lot of color and mix in some patterns, chances are you’re making more bold decisions in your home. If you’re more of a person who likes to wear matching sweater sets, spandex or a beret’ then you probably shouldn’t invite people back to your home.

Take this girl, for example, really simple and classic. A pin striped blouse is a staple and the tan belt is also a classic piece (feels very Banana Republic circa 1996). She makes this look modern with her white crochet shorts; her hair is ombre which says modern. She sticks to more neutral colors with a pop of neon pink on her wrist. This is probably how her home looks:

This room feels very laid back with the pillows and throw. The lounge chair and crochet pillows are more tailored. There’s pops of color around the room but it’s foundation is neutral. The coffee table and floor lamp are modern and chic. This room is open, casual and modern.
Now this girl wouldn’t be happy in this room:

No, she would need a room like this:

I didn’t choose this picture because the shape of the sofa is similar to the shape of her jacket, this room screams glamor. She likes simple, strong and shiny.

I wish it was acceptable for adults who are no longer in school to wear a uniform because this would be mine. I would be so happy to wear this every day. It’s so simple and bohemian and completely effortless. This beautiful woman belongs in a room like this:

This room is breathtaking. The windows everywhere are a huge plus, everything looks better with natural light. It has an easy and casual feel to it. All the fabrics bring in so much warmth and the colors come from nature. I’m crazy about this room.

Even though I cant see her face, I can still see what her style is. I’m probably better off not seeing her face because if it’s anything like her body I may as well kill myself right now. Moving on, the color palette of this outfit is really feminine and soft. You can see she likes a good mix; her long silk skirt is dressed down with a white casual knit. She’s wearing gold bracelets one of which is spikes, showing she has some edge.

This room is soft with some good fabrics going on. The wallpaper is beautiful it’s loud and quiet at the same time. The glass table hardens things up a little bit. The cowhide is a great way to bring in a wild feel to such a soft room.
I’m having a lot of fun with this, they should make this a game- ‘Return the owner to their home.’ Clearly I would be very good at this game.

Let’s guess who lives in this room…

No, not her. She lives here:


If you were thinking this woman lives there, wrong again. She’s currently living between these two places:


It’s a busy life….

And it’s not this woman either:

She lives here:

This is called the 80’s people. The woman above and this table setting both live there happily.

The answer is this woman..

This blonde bombshell lives in that adventurous space. You can see she loves to travel and take pictures of things that inspire her. She has this long hair that’s out and messy and her leather jacket shows a lot of edge.

Yes, they will be very happy together.

This post was inspired by one of my favorite designers Emily Henderson. Her show ‘Secrets from a Stylist’ which is based on taking someones style and incorporating it into their home.
Emily if you ever read this, thank you for inspiring me 🙂
