Over the past few weeks I have been posting specific design styles in my Style Guide series.  There are truly so many that I could keep going for months.  Have you seen one you like?  Does one fit your lifestyle and taste?  Sometimes it is a mix of styles that really makes us happy.  The relationship between designer and client is a personal one, finding that unique personal style that will fit you and your family.

I recently read an online article posted by a major design magazine telling about a celebrity that acquired the assistance from a designer to help her design her rental home incorporating existing furnishings that were not in the style direction she really wanted as they were from a past home.  The client raved about how her designer was able to capture her style and do it within her budget.  While I obviously was not involved in the conversations between designer and client, but it sure sounds like she hit the nail on the head.

So what makes you happy in your home?  Whatever it is, it a clue into what your personal style is.

Mid-Century Modern Style by janeane-pittman featuring Crate and Barrel

This weeks style guide is featuring Mid-Century Modern.  I have a personal connection to this style because it was so popular when I was growing up.  It brings comfort to my soul.  Some of the defining details in MCM are brass and metal objects like this fantastic accent table as well as diamond shapes as shown in the pendant light and artwork.  This soft chenille covered sofa is a perfect example of the straight lines that MCM furnishings have.  Look for items with mixed media and a handcrafted feel.  The artwork and lamp show off these details beautifully.
