After years in the interior design business I finally have a word
that describes my interior design style: Moody.
I don't know how contemporary this word actually is,
so English speaking readers might think it's strange I didn't know
about this word before. But in Sweden we have no such word or style.
We would probably just call it 'dark'. But that definition is lacking.
I have always felt like I had a strong personal style,
but trying to find a label I suddenly seemed crushingly scattered.
I am not quite Victorian (or goth) enough to fit under the Gothic label.
I have never been light, girly and romantic enough for Shabby chic.
Never rustic craftsy and nature-y enough for what counts as Bohemian.
Not really exotic and bright colors-y enough for the Indian/Moroccan style.
Obviously neither wealthy or upper classy enough for the Classic interior style.
And lastly, not as artsy - and kind of all over the place -
as I have come to think of the Eclectic style.
It has bothered me, not being able to put my finger on exactly
what my preferens is, and not knowing what to google.
But then last night, a word fluttered by on my screen.
And today, I'm happy to say, it is the word I have been looking for.
I am Moody. YES I AM.
Looking at these pictures now, it is obvious that ones interior style
could tell others something about how one dresses,
how one likes to spend ones time - even how someone feels...
So, I'm curious:
Do you feel that you have a personal interior design style?
Do you think it reflects your life and who you are?
