    Your videos really are excellent and very helpful.

  2. Mindy McBride on January 1, 2023 at 2:16 am

    Awesome video!

  3. Hasma Ismail on January 1, 2023 at 2:18 am

    thanks for this video! i totally get it when you say analyze the picture that make you stop. for me its always modern farmhouse and bohemian…i dont know why and how to incorporate both…maybe i should do bright coloured farmhouse with rattan furnitures and plants, idk huhu

  4. Mad Hatterine on January 1, 2023 at 2:20 am

    Boho Academia with Art Nouveau accents. 🙂 Cozy and soothing.

  5. georges zurbach on January 1, 2023 at 2:20 am

    One approach is to start by looking in your wardrobe. It will give you a huge amount of infos on you:
    What colours, fabrics, style(s) …. you wear and are comfortable with. You can easily thén translate this in your home décoration.

    Is there a word for slightly modernized gothic? Cuz that’s my favorite lol

  7. IceeaTeea on January 1, 2023 at 2:20 am

    this was a really good and clear explanation! I’ve been pinning thousands of pins throughout the years but I only recently started to sometimes microanalyze individual interiors more closely instead of solely just collecting and not getting as specific as one would like. I find curated videos with photo examples like this helpful as well since it is hard to dwell on individual images sometimes on social media when you don’t have the same design-specific context for it. it’s helped me a lot as well to refine my taste through making different sections under my interiors board on pinterest – everything from ideas for a specific and actual room I’m gonna decorate to explorations of my dream place, to color/texture/feelings/moodboards. I’ve very recently made a future apartment section and it’s my favorite section I’ve done so far as I’ve slowly narrowed down my taste to a quite specific collection of ideas. I have a pretty hybrid style mix that I like to call something along the lines of ‘Greek island meets japandi-industrial with a touch of colorful ethereal’…

  8. Michelle on January 1, 2023 at 2:21 am

    My style is japandi and modern farm house, and a hint of boho ☺️

  9. Sara Nox on January 1, 2023 at 2:21 am

    This is how I do it. 🙂 nice.

  10. Nerissa Crawford on January 1, 2023 at 2:22 am

    I find Pinterest to be the best image search engine, showing you the best example of what you are trying to look at.

  11. chelsey garrett on January 1, 2023 at 2:23 am

    Is Gilmore girls a design style 🤔

  12. Andy Bryant on January 1, 2023 at 2:25 am

    I’m more into traditional styles. I like dark academia and steampunk. They are slightly off putting for some people

  13. WhaleTank on January 1, 2023 at 2:26 am

    My feelings are: airy, cozy, comfortable, warm, inviting, and fresh
    I like modern design. My design style is scandi, japandi, with some mid century

  14. Rishi on January 1, 2023 at 2:26 am

    This is the most helpful video I have seen on the subject so far. Very analytical, clear and concise. Thanks so much!

  15. L. OBrien on January 1, 2023 at 2:27 am

    I’m getting ready to move to downsize in six months and will try these ideas to help determine what to pack for my new home and what to get rid of. Hope it will work backwards too!

  16. Marlynne K on January 1, 2023 at 2:28 am

    I like traditional furniture but presented in a modern way, i.e. no clutter, no heavy drapes, no busy patterns. I figured out that I like transitional.

  17. Ana bhousen on January 1, 2023 at 2:31 am

    I want a house where every room has a completely different feeling like I Stepped into a different part of world on any timeline.

  18. Abdul Ahad on January 1, 2023 at 2:31 am

    Very helpful video..love your idea

  19. KL on January 1, 2023 at 2:32 am

    What is the style of the room you are filming this video in? What is your style? I love it

  20. MarishaG on January 1, 2023 at 2:33 am

    Omg you’re so helpful!!! Thank you!!!!!

  21. Redroo11 on January 1, 2023 at 2:33 am

    Omg thank you for this thoughtful, practical method for weeding through this overwhelming process.There’s so much freedom in choosing the elements or feel of what you like and maybe even developing your very own personalyzed design category. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard/read different ways to choose your style and still come up confused and overwhelmed. I just cannot thank you enough!

  22. Sherilyn on January 1, 2023 at 2:35 am

    You left out my favorite style – English cottage

  23. Samantha Johnson on January 1, 2023 at 2:37 am

    Dark maximalism! 🙌🏻

  24. Theresa Slattery on January 1, 2023 at 2:41 am

    Great advice thank you 😀

  25. Sally Jenkins on January 1, 2023 at 2:42 am

    My new home is painted in a soft buttery yellow in every room even the bathrooms. I want to change this but I’m afraid this will chop up the house and make it look smaller. What should I do?

  26. isabelle doumeng on January 1, 2023 at 2:42 am

    Really helpful. Thank you

  27. Sanjay Chand on January 1, 2023 at 2:44 am

    Can I eat pizza 🍕 now pls mom no waaaaaaaaa

  28. s waters on January 1, 2023 at 2:47 am

    I like Ralph Lauren/dark academia and a little bohemian in the less formal rooms and porches.

  29. Mofojo on January 1, 2023 at 2:48 am

    The house I grew up in has a lot of antique furniture that has been passed down and some of it is colonial furniture that is 100s of years old. Traditionally styled homes feel more like home to me. I would have a mental breakdown if I had to live in one of those modern Scandinavian minimalist houses.

  30. Charlie Wilkins on January 1, 2023 at 2:49 am

    My apartment flat is Boho…. With lots of plants… And things related to nature. And lots of texture.

  31. Renee Fraser on January 1, 2023 at 2:50 am

    Unfortunately, the images that stop me in my tracks always include floor to ceiling windows with stunning views. Not much help when you live in a stucco tract home. But thanks for the video, it was helpful.

  32. Dada Dada on January 1, 2023 at 2:50 am

    This is a highly intelligent approach to figuring out what I want in my project. Thank you.

  33. Carolyn Provost on January 1, 2023 at 2:51 am

    I ended up with a mid century modern style with a steampunk flare. I wasn’t sure how it would come out but we get compliments all the time. It really gave me the Calming and warm feeling I was going for.

  34. zendaya love on January 1, 2023 at 2:51 am

    this was so helpful, thank you very much!!

  35. Here for It on January 1, 2023 at 2:52 am

    Spot on! 👍🏾

  36. Jessica Norgate on January 1, 2023 at 2:52 am

    Please do a video about Classic Victorian and Art Deco 🙂 I didn’t even know it was a thing, but it’s amazing 🙂

  37. Tina Smale on January 1, 2023 at 2:53 am

    I’m definitely a mix of modern farmhouse with a touch of Scandinavian. But I do love to make it my own by adding a little bit of a light color on the walls. That, to me, is what truly makes it my signature style for my home

  38. Nakeshia Thompson on January 1, 2023 at 2:54 am

    Luxe Japandi!

  39. Darren Brooks on January 1, 2023 at 2:58 am

    What an amazingly clear and step by step tutorial! Once I started creating a Pinterest board for my photo inspirations I found a style for myself I hadn’t thought of: part Mediterranean, part Spanish, part Zen, all warm natural colors where a touch of green or neutral colors really make it feel more cozy. Thanks for being awesome and sharing your down-to-earth, creative advice.

  40. Katalin S. Murphy on January 1, 2023 at 2:58 am

    "garlic?" Lmao I love the effort you put into editing!

  41. sandra cabrera on January 1, 2023 at 2:58 am

    My house is a mix of styles and looks georgeous in my opinion

  42. Roma's Fav on January 1, 2023 at 3:00 am

    When we moved to our new desert house from the beach I took with us all our expensive coastal art , I am now stuck with coastal deco in our desert home which is not bad at all.

  43. Hanah on January 1, 2023 at 3:01 am

    "feeling" key words: cozy relaxing restful peaceful fresh clean inviting airy elegant soothing

  44. Anuja Sarode on January 1, 2023 at 3:02 am

    Love your vlog!!! Can you please post a video on how to decorate tall/high ceiling large walls especially minimalistic (toned down/neutral color tone) boho style? Thank you!

  45. R on January 1, 2023 at 3:03 am

    Mid century boho

  46. Jada Cooper on January 1, 2023 at 3:05 am

    Rustic mid century modern!!

  47. E.C. Animation on January 1, 2023 at 3:06 am

    I want my home to feel goblinly with mermaidishness in the bathroom. 💚🧜‍♀
    Right now it is autumnie and creepy. I mean close, but not the same thing. 🙃😆😂

  48. Shannon on January 1, 2023 at 3:09 am

    I absolutely love your videos and I use the boho as a reference tool guide to help me pull off the look I love so much. Thank you for that!:) I just shared your video on how to get started choosing a look to my brother and sister in-law since they were asking for my help and I go to you for help myself so it made sense to share your video! Lol

  49. DevonExplorer on January 1, 2023 at 3:09 am

    My preferred style is Modern Mid Century Eclectic but an awful lot of Moroccan/Turkish lamps, rugs, cushions, fruit bowls and brass trays have somehow snucked in as well, lol! Great video. 🙂

  50. Sandra Silveira on January 1, 2023 at 3:12 am

    Hi Vivien! I love your videos. I’m from Brazil and I can tell you I’ve learnt more about design with them than I’ve done in my last 2 years Interior Design college classes. Thanks a lot!!!
