HOW TO KNOW YOUR DECORATING STYLE

Develop essential skills to pinpoint your decorating style and become a masterful home decorator. 

Several years ago, I found myself in a situation where I needed to decorate my ‘new’ home. While searching for inspiration, I was excited to have found Yvonne Pratt from the beautiful blog, Stonegable. With the help of Yvonne’s easy to understand design advice and unique diy projects and makeovers, I’ve been able to develop and hone my decorating skills to create a lovely home with my own personality. Yvonne’s design expertise and genuine desire to help others would be a blessing to anyone, whether they are looking to add a new bit of loveliness to a single room, or totally revamping their home! ~Julie Briones, My Wee Abode

LET ME START

My decorating style, initially it was whatever was inexpensive. Then as I matured, I leaned towards traditional. The problem was my husband loves mid century modern; therefore our house is a blend of Craigslist finds, traditional pieces I collected, and mid century pieces that my husband bought or found. I was having the hardest time blending this into one cohesive style. It was a cocophony of bad decorating choices. Then, Yvonne worked with me to find a transitional style that incorporated both my husband's tastes and mine as well. In the dining room, we kept our mid century table, paired them with modern-leaning side dining chairs, upholstered head chairs and a transitional wallpaper with a large geometric pattern. Complete with a mid century modern record cabinet turned sideboard and accessories, our home found a transitional style that we love living with. Thanks Yvonne for helping me find this balance that is uniquely ours. Jacqueline T

I've always loved to decorate. As far back as I can remember I was rearranging furniture, creating art for walls and pouring over decorating magazines. But I was not good at it. I had no idea where to start, what to do and how to create a look that was uniquely mine. During those times decorating was often frustrating and unfulfilling and costly. I had in my mind the decorated beautiful home I wanted but did not know how to get there.

It was not until I became a "student" of all things home and decorating that I started to find secrets and guidelines and tricks of the decorating trade. My joy and love for decorating resurfaced. For decades I've read everything I could get my hands on about home decor and practiced what I learned in every room in my home. My home was, and is, a living labratory. It is a testiment to everyone who thinks they can't decorate. And I have helped many home decorators along the way. My mantra is, IF I CAN DECORATE SO CAN YOU... I'll SHOW YOU HOW! 

One thing that had the most impact on how I decorate was finding my own unique decorating style. I stopped making costly mistakes. Stopped decorating with no plan and goal. I no longer felt "stuck" because of too many decorating choices or bad decorating decisions! Now I'm a confident decorator who can and does create beauty in my home and others.

Knowing my decorating style and staying true to it has immensly helped me decorate and curate each room in my home. I can now honestly say, "My house looks and feels like home. MY home".

It is my passion and goal to share what I've learned through my blog, StoneGable. To be a cheerleader, a coach, a teacher, a decorator, and a friend who can come up beside you and help you as you create your own beautiful home.

And now I want to offer you a decorating course that can help you learn and name and KNOW your decorating style. To share with you what has taken me decades to glean. I want to infuse decorating confidence and courage in you because knowing your style sets you on the path to become your own best home designer!





READY TO NAME AND KNOW YOUR DECORATING STYLE?

LET ME IN

Decorating for me has always seemed more like a chore than a pleasure. While I love having a beautiful, well-decorated home, I felt overwhelmed by choice and making a wrong decision meant having to make costly redos or live with furniture that just wasn’t me.  

Yvonne, with her exquisite taste and incomparable sense of style, helped me to find mine. She is a natural teacher with the ability to instill confidence in even the most decorating-challenged. Armed with new skills developed through Yvonne’s course Know Your Deorating Style and her caring encouragement, I not only found my style, I am transitioning to a fresher, more neutral palette throughout my home. I no longer fear decorating decisions – I embrace them! I highly recommend Yvonne’s Know Your Decorating Style for anyone who wants their home to finally reflect their style and to accomplish it with ease! Lisa P.
