Do you have a style?

Quite often I hear, "This home is just to modern. I mean, I like the house, I just think it is too modern for me." While I can appreciate that the architectural style of the home should be synched with it's interior decoration, often the "modern" that most of us are referencing is gray walls and minimalist furniture. Below is a breakdown of a handful of the most common design styles and a few examples. Most of us can pick out Art Deco, English Country and Tropical styles. But do you understand the subtle differences between Contemporary, Modern, and Transitional?

These are the styles you are most likely to see in the area, and I hope that this helps to answer any questions you might have about what works for you. Please feel free to post your own opinions in the comments section!
