How to Find Your Personal Design Style, According to the Experts

Fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent was onto something when he famously said, “Fashions fade, style is eternal.” Your personal style is so much more than haphazardly throwing on a T-shirt and pair of jeans; it’s a reflection of who you are. It’s as much a part of your identity as your job or Instagram feed.

So why should your home be any different? Let’s face it: With the exception of your office, you probably spend the most time in your home so it’s important your space reflects you.

Of course, your personal style doesn’t just emerge overnight. It takes time, some soul-searching, and a few rounds of trial and error. To help you dive head-first into domestic bliss, here are five tips for finding your personal style.

Could This Bedroom Trend Actually Help You Get a Better Night of Sleep?

The one place I’ve been seeing a lot of color lately is in bedrooms, and things are getting dark. Navy and midnight blues, charcoal grays, deep teals, and even black, which is the trickiest to pull off if you don’t get a lot of natural light in your space. But it’s doable. The word on the street is that this trend might actually be beneficial for sleep—either it helps you drift off easily and/or stay asleep longer. And that’s because darkness, or lack of light, is key for melatonin production.

What’s less clear, however, is whether wall color or bedding color, for that matter—has any bearing on said melatonin production. My guess is that it can’t hurt, but I talked to a few pros to get their take on dark bedrooms and whether they’re actually beneficial for catching zzz’s or not.

7 Rooms That Prove a Full Sized Sofa Isn't the Be-All, End-All of Living Room Design

Alright—what I’m about to say here is going to be very controversial: A successfully decorated living room doesn’t need a full-sized sofa. Boom! Notice I didn’t say seating though. You obviously need that in spades, especially if you want to have people over or entertain. But if your living room just isn’t big enough for a sectional or even a full-sized sofa, don’t force it. Instead find yourself an alternative—a loveseat, an armchair, a settee. You’ll be surprised what might work—even something non-traditional like a chaise, bench or a stack of floor pillows can get the job done. Need some proof? These seven rooms are giving me life right now.
