dining room design

As a type A person, I’d drawn toward organized, ‘buttoned-up’ spaces, but sometimes when I’m decorating my home, I need to relax a bit.

Both of these rooms are beautiful, but each offers something different.  It all comes down to how you use your room.  Do you want it to be used for kids’ homework, or entertaining? or both?

If you would have flashed these by me five years ago, I probably would have picked the ‘styled’ – with all of its rustic elements mixed with glam and traditional. But ask me now, and I find myself leaning toward the simple – which can be equally difficult to do right.

It all comes down to personal preference, but what would you say you are?  Simple? Or Styled?



p.s. if you follow me on instagram, and saw my dinner last night, you probably would have known that I’d classify myself as simple… I ate beans with tomatoes and loved every second of it!

  • Simple, because I don’t like long curtains and dark colours.

  • I would pick the ‘simple’ space as it feels more relaxed, welcoming and calmer.

  • Both pictures really appeal to me – I love that grey wall color. However, I have to say that even the ‘simple’ picture looks like it’s been pretty ‘styled’ to me!

  • Styled but in a simple version 🙂

  • Simple all the way. Simple spaces for some reason seem more inviting to me.

  • I like them both! Styled is gorg but a teensy bit stuffy

  • I prefer the styled version…but maybe a little less buttoned-up. The colors are definitely more my cup of tea.

  • Simple for sure! I want to LIVE in my home, it’s not for show!

  • Simple! I find overly styled spaces intimidating. In a simple but organized space, I can relax.

  • I am in love with the simple look and I think that although it may look simple, is much harder t put together.

    I strive for a simple look in my home, but it requires constant editing as I’m drawn to so many beautiful things.
