In my previous two posts I discussed function and mood today I’ll share with you some quick thoughts from our designers on the third principle of design—personality.


Personality is where your room design truly comes together—it’s where you apply your personal touch to the entire project. And while there are no real hard and fast rules when it comes to personality, below you’ll find some suggestions on how to get started.


The key to expressing your personality is in how you choose to accessorize your room. Whether it’s adding a vase, some throw pillows or other items, these accessories should fit within your theme but give yourself some creative latitude too. Once you are done with this step, check out the design, perhaps live with it for a few days and see how you feel about it.


If your room feels too rigid or boring, you may want to try something unexpected. For example, place a modern piece of art in a traditional room, or if you have an Asian themed room, try placing something of European origin.


Remember, make sure to have fun and enjoy the experience!
