What's Your Style In One Picture?

It's a pretty hard question, isn't it? Alek at From the Right Bank to the Left Coast has a challenge going on where she asks, can you find one picture that sums up your design style? This proved difficult as mine is constantly changing, but here it is! And no, I couldn't choose just one, so I'm cheating and submitting three :)

One thing that I love and just can't get enough of is mixing rustic elements, like these beams, columns, and table with super modern pieces, like these Arne Jacobsen Ant Chairs and Cellula Chandelier. I'm also currently on a hot pink kick, so this color is more than working for me!

Two words: leaning mirrors! I love them everywhere and in any room! Add the clawfoot tub and antique chandelier and it can't get much better! But wait, it does. Ceiling beams and a Barcelona-esque chair! 

I know I posted this room earlier in the week, but it has quickly become a favorite of mine. It's visually clean, but still achieves so much texture, luxuriousness, and warmth! 

And it's no coincidence that all three pictures have chandeliers. I'm currently in love with them! I hope you'll submit your picture too and participate in the challenge right here. It's so much fun to see what others choose!

Hey, you're playing along! Hooray! Of course, I love all of these. Chandeliers and mirrors? Say no more. And as for that first pic, I posted it a while back and another participant also chose it for her one picture - she said I gave her both the challenge and the picture(!) (It's also my screensaver because I love it so much!) Thanks again for participating! xoxo, alek

I rememeber that pink chair photo from Alek's blog, and it's good to see it agaain! It's one of the classiest and simplest introductions I've seen of modern elements to a traditional space.

Oh my goodness! That is the hardest question to answer! If I'm able to find one photo I may submit it! But I doubt I'll be able to! =)

I adore every single photo...They are all gorgeous!

I'm kind of obsessed with chandeliers, too! And I LOVE all these rooms. I think I even used that top pick in a post at some point (but now I can't remember when ;-)).
I'll have to try this challenge, although I suspect I would need more than one picture to define my style, too!

I really love the look of a sweet little chandelier in the bathroom. It just totally pumps up the glamour level...

Gorgeous, high ceilings and fabulous light fixtures! Can it get any better?

Love your blog. Found you through Haute Design.

Cheers

Lovely!

I think I have a fear of commitment. I can't even imagine having to choose one photo to represent my style. Isn't that why we have different rooms in a house? To experiment with different styles? ;-)

Crystal @ Plush Palate said...

Wow, it looks like the top pic is hit!!! We all must have fabulous taste ;)

Alek, I must have gotten the pic from you! Thanks! I just updated my source. And I hope you don't mind if I copy you, and make it my screen saver, too! Great idea :)

@Her Name was Lola: so glad you found me, so that I now found you!!

Hey, you've got a great blog - just thought I'd leave you a comment to let you know. Thanks so much for sharing it !

What a difficult challenge! No wonder you selected 3 rooms - all are so lovely, and capture bits of what would be your ideal space perfectly. That bathroom is so romantic and warm - I think I would want to have a bubble bath every single night.

I might need to search through my images files as well :)

Vitania said...

Of course you have fantastic style ! Love the rustic mix with modern.

I think i have come close to finding the perfect pic of my style - it really is a challenge isn't it?

That bathroom is completely divine! I adore it.

Creategirl said...

I am not sure I could ever just pick one. Lately I noticed my personal style changes with each new client I work with. I guess it is from throwing myself into each home. Though I love the leaning mirror and bath tub, so romantic!!

Oh my....that first and last image are just fantastic. So love that wood with the chandelier - sigh. Searching for the right chandelier here in Marrakech --- challenging.
