Don’t feel you have to follow perfect symmetry all of the time – a huge bookcase along an entire wall doesn’t have to mean books all upright in a row like little soldiers, or like a traditional bookshop, library or dad’s study or den.
Develop your style, your eye, your taste - If you don't think you’re clear just quite yet, or you feel you haven’t developed your own style, your eye, your taste, start going about learning & looking around you.
Come with me to HomeGoods lots of beach décor and new wicker décor. I also found some very interesting books . Some are still sealed . Design books, pattern …
Feel free to experiment – you’re finding, collecting, & defining, or expanding your own style – Don’t be afraid to combine something Country, with perhaps something French or Mediterranean or Tuscan, or something English or even Asian, & throw in some Shabby Chic or Kitsch, or even a well chosen thoughtful ‘bad taste’ item.
