    Default If you had two bare rooms in your house...

    If you could decorate them any way you wanted to, would they be of a similar style or do you have two different decorating styles........like one room in flowers and stripes and the other sleek and modern?

    Don't worry about the decor being appropriate to the architecture, it's just about expressing yourself in different ways.

    Hmmm. This is a fun question. I'd say similar in style. BUT,being Southern, I would hasten to add if-for whatever reason-I took a notion (as we say) to do them radically different,I wouldn't bat an eye. My style is basically what appeals to me. I have eclectic tastes and either my family & friend lie to me or it works quite well. I don't like to place limits. I just want it to look nice and feel "right". Somehow this usually translates to similar.

    I like different styles and I will be re-doing some rooms in my house in the near future.

    they'd both be the same style (which is mid-century modern pieces mixed with new modern pieces & random flea market finds ), to go along with the rest of my house.

    It would depend on the function of the rooms.
    If they're kids rooms, they'd probably have their own unique
    and probably not in flow with the rest of the house, style.
    If they're "general use" rooms, I'd like to keep them a bit
    in the same "theme". That would not necessarily mean same
    color scheme, but just the same overall atmosphere.

    I'm with HWBL. Let the room reflect function rather than fashion. I like rooms that function as a playscape and flow fun from one to the next so you're eager to see what's around every corner.

    "form follows function" for me - so it would depend on use, etc....

    I would see nothing wrong with having them radically different.

    that pretty much sums up my decorating style as well. i'm not into 'theme' rooms. i don't really like it when a place looks too 'done' and the couches are in the same tones as the carpet and curtains and/or there's a whole elaborate theme to a room.

    One would be a really hippy Balinese style, and the other would be very modern, sleek, with old hollywood glamor to it.
