Perhaps its Country or Rustic, Mediterranean or Tuscan, Asian, Classical, Contemporary, or a combination of some? Which do you or would you feel most comfortable in every day?
Most importantly, the more your home decorating reflects who you are & the things you love, the longer you will be happy with it for an extended period of time, & the longer it will last. Remember that the more understated & elegant the interior the longer it will stand the test of time & last.
