On the Interior Designipedia site they put together a list of twenty five style concepts which gets more detailed as you click down through them. The ones of this list that I'm attracted to for my branding are:
BRITISH : Shabby Chic Interiors
This vintage inspired look is very much about comfort with a relaxed and informal air. The word bohemian is often associated with the feel. The color palette is often whites and neutrals. One of the iconic elements is a large, fluffy couch or bed and distressed furniture.
For contrast with the neutrals a splash of bold colors are sometimes added as well as shiny elements paired with distressed vintage pieces.
Sophistication and class define the French, not only as a culture but also this particular style which can be bold or soft. Personally I am attracted to the soft, more country inspired aspect of this look, which cross pollinates nicely with British: Shabby Chic.
the third style I've got going on, which isn't mentioned as one of the twenty five styles is APOTHECARY, which is a combination of: Victorian, Industrial and Gothic.
So, that's the intention, we shall see what I can manifest and how quickly! Almost all my creative energy is going into this at the moment.
