    I voted modern, but there’s a bit of contemporary (I think) thrown in.

    @sarahbabs: what is the difference between modern and contemporary?  I’ve never understood.

    I’m heavy on traditional style, where the house itself is an important part of the design–as in, historical/manor/colonial style with lots of wood touches, built-ins, fireplaces, architectural interest, big windows, effective use of space, and elegant furnishings. I also like transitional decorating, where modern pieces add fun and color.

    Of course, this is all coming from my daydreams and pinterest boards, not so much what I have the $$$ to execute in real life!

    @secondchances: Me too!  I could spend hours in good will or a random antique barn sale!

    Boring and lazy.  I’m not sure which one that is!  😀

    I prefer natural colors and classic furniture.  Definitely not trendy but not living in the 1800s either, so it’s a mix.  I’d say probably close to transitional.

    What does transitional mean?

    I guess I would call it “eclectic”? This is a tough one!

    Most of our furniture is modern/contemporary – clean lines, square, dark.  We have a lot of wood pieces, but recently we’ve both started to love the rustic look so we’re starting to collect some of those pieces.  We also have a couple antiques mixed in.  I promise it looks good! lol

    I would say traditional/rustic/country cottage.

    @Meowkers: Haha, I’m not quite sure myself.  My feeling is that contemporary is a bit less severe than stark modernist decor, with more colors and less of an emphasis on clean lines.

    We have a mixed style. We have modern and sleek furniture on hardwood floors but very rustic and natural decorative items. It is hard to explain.

    I love furniture from Crate and Barrel and the style of Ikea. I would describe myself as contemporary.
