My home style is mid century modern with feminine touches.


Thanks for the giveaway! I live in a 100 year old craftsman bungalow. My husband and I have worked hard to respect the beauty of the house, but add some modern and personal touches as well. I’m not sure how our style could be defined – its a mix of antique, modern, and kid stuff! But we aim to make everything beautiful, natural, and meaningful.


My style is a mix of modern comfort, vintage hand-me-downs and crafty character


My home decor style is contemporary, love texture and shapes- especially circles!

Hi! My home design style is mediterrean country mixed with vintage and DIY.
Thanks for the giveaway!


my home design style is industrial vintage meets outdoors. I will have a turquoise typewriter sitting next to a jam jar of driftwood and a bird nest πŸ™‚


My style is eclectic.


I would love this subscription πŸ™‚


My home style is comfortable and eclectic, a great smorgasbord of inherited family pieces, curated items, and color. It makes me happy πŸ™‚


My home style is comfy, outdoorsy (NW), and DIY

I would definitely describe our home style as country/funky/mis-matched – We’ve consolidated every piece of free housewares from both of our college apartments and haven’t really made an attempt at bringing everything together – But I like it that way – Everything has a story πŸ™‚


Eclectic, flea-markety, for sure! We have a Noguchi table flanked by Indiana farm porch rockers with a Craftsman style floor lamp, advertising display case with vintage souvenir glasses perched inside, etc…Somehow, it works! Thanks for all of the giveaways.

Is confused a style? Or I guess you would call it eclectic! I live in what I love and that varies a great deal so there’s no one cohesive theme. Its like my garden, which someone once commented that it was like a zoo, one or two of everything.


Completing the trifecta! My tweet!!



My home design style…never really thought about putting it into words. Hmmm…

It is definitely a combo of traditional & industrial – upholstered headboard with glass & metal bedside tables for example. Plus a mix of black & white photographs (one of a nude!) on the wall with old pictures of our family’s sailboats & family documents. All framed similarly though. We love it! Oh, and a giant piece of taxidermy…

Maybe traditional eclectic is the best way to describe it…




My home design style is mostly modern, sleek and black, dark woods.. I do like to throw in a few vintage pieces though.

I live with my boyfriend so I think our style is mostly modern but I like to add eclectic pieces. I’m a big fan of animal motifs. I plan on getting a cardboard deer head to put on the wall next to his guitars. πŸ˜€


I would say my style is eclectic and comfy. I kinda have a hodge podge of things I’ve collected from my travels, but it somehow works.

Clare @ Clare Cooks!

I would describe my style as everyone elses junk just tweaked a little. Some people throw out the best stuff

Christy Wheatley

AH loves me some better home and gardens!!

Very shabby and a little bit chic and eclectic. I have a small space & way too much stuff.


My home style is unfinished with hints of planned improvements! Although I would probably use the words eccentric and eclectic to describe it as well. Bookshelves, lots and lots of bookshelves.

Old leather, dark wood, pictures in frames and lots of colorful homemade rugs and blankets.


tweet! tweet!

my style has to be eclectic. i love mid century modern and new modern, too. but it has to be balanced with a lot of old stuff πŸ™‚

alexandra keller

I don’t think my style necessarily fits into a specific category, but if I had to label it as something it would be vintage modern in the works!


My style is retro/free.Which means the things I own were mostly given to me,and most of them were given because they’re retro…. πŸ™‚


My house style is like us! A mix of everything! We take little details from all the different styles we like and we try to combine them πŸ˜€ Its working so far!

My style … as I live here with my husband it is a mix … I like old furniture and colors. He likes more modern things, steel, black …
But to be honest … at the moment I would say our two kids (5 and 1) decide more about our style than our likes or dislikes. It really is not easy to baby or kidproof a place for my little one year old guy! πŸ™‚ But they get older … and hopefully our home style will evolve …

I believe my style is clean, Scandinavian with a touch of vintage… very bright bold pattern mixed with white!


great giveaway! i’m already on your mailing list πŸ™‚ my decorating style is a mix between mid century modern with a little rustic and industrial thrown in.

Nan Lawson

clean and funky!


My style is constantly changing but could be described as a hybrid of retro and modern.


I would describe my style as cheerfully eclectic. I like “clean” looks but love an old piece of furniture with a story!

Ashley J.

My style is so all over the place and I love it. Me and my fiance are really into att so when we see a painting/print we like we buy it. We find a way for it to work and it always does. I love how our walls are a collection of who we are!


My design style is vintage chic/ kitchsy/ Collection addict *smile*


i would describe my home design style as “vintern” :: a marriage between vintage & modern aesthetics.

Megan Lane

my style is vintage with a lot of light and wood pieces!


my style is traditional meets cute retro. now i just wish i could get my actual house to look like that!


My house is turning into Pottery Barn meets crazy antique store…no real definitive style, but lots of fun!


I think I’m like a pottery barn meets artsy fartsy. ha I have no idea what that means. Is there a name for that?

Kyley and Ammo the Dachshund

I would describe my style as eclectic meets modern-vintage. A little of this and a little of that with a touch of vintage.


My style is a bit eclectic and creative in its own right. Modern, Indian, retro, and Asian, my home is a harmonious joining of loves and interests of two different individuals. My home is most defined by it’s bold colors, handmade crafts and vibrant flowers.


Tweeted about this fun giveaway!


Kailey Harris

I would say my style is modern country. I like some vintage-style accents like quilts and pillows, but I like the clean lines of modern furniture.


I haven’t had my own place for very long, so my style consists of pulling together re-purposed bargain finds, antiques from my grandma who passed away and some handmade creations. I love finding inspiration to redesign and redecorate my little apartment space, so would LOVE a subscription to Better Homes and Gardens!

Kailey Harris

My style is contemporary with a bit of Asian accents. I would like to have it more put together though- we have some pieces from different styles.


I don’t know what my design style is. I will find out in July when I move into my first apartment! I am excited to decorate the new space and combine the things I’ve had forever and the new things that will help me start me new life!


I have a pretty modern clean style with some asian thrown in.


I would say that my style right now is still college– even though i graduated 10 years ago!!! (yuck!)


I’m fairly traditional, but I like to add in some fun pieces here and there.


I love better homes and gardens!

I think my home design style is romantic Scandinavian. I try and branch out to other types of style but always come back to lots of white and sleek lines!


i would describe my style as global eclectic. I love collecting small things from my travels and throwing it all together!


I think my style is eclectic. I like French country, retro, modern, Asian and Indian inspired pieces. A little bit of everything.
