February 9, 2023 at 4:50 PM PST

Similar to fashion, your design style is a reflection of your personality. When family, friends, and loved ones step into your home, they should feel an overwhelming sense of “you” without any words ever being spoken. Your unique style truly can speak for you.

But determining what style fits you best isn’t always so simple. In fact, defining your design aesthetic can seem overwhelming, especially if you’re unsure about the various style options. To figure it out, you should take stock of who you are, what things you like, and what aesthetic you feel especially connected to. Do you enjoy a warm cozy space or do clean lines and organized living really excite you? There are many ways to determine what style fits you best. Doing so can help when attempting to decorate your space in a cohesive way. 

Let’s take a look at the 5 different design style options and see what fits you best:

If you are drawn to natural materials like rattan, wicker, and sweetgrass baskets, your style is likely bohemian. This design style infuses nature, air, and energy into a space. Lovers of the bohemian style find themselves drawn to plants and patterns mimicking nature.

This style is all about what’s happening now and in the future. Emerging trends play a big part in contemporary design. Clean lines, minimalism, functionality, and sleek design are all signs that contemporary design is your love language.

Less is more for those who love the minimalist style. This design style is inspired by Japanese design. Similar to contemporary design, there are clean lines and functionality. What sets minimalism apart is having more open space. Simple furniture, quality light fixtures, and clutter-free surfaces reign supreme for those with a minimalist style.

The eclectic style is for free spirits. Like Tracee Ellis Ross, those who love eclectic design aren’t afraid to mix and match colors, textures, and patterns to create visual harmony. This design style isn’t a fan of being too “matchy” or following rules and trends. The eclectic design style lover sets their own rules and may even incorporate different design styles into their home.
