Style Guide: 50% Coastal

50% coastal, 20% country, 15% sophisticated and 15% casual style guide | My Paradissi
These past days I keep having some style thoughts wandering around my mind. I'm an interior designer and I keep looking/sourcing/designing interiors. Fact. But, by definition, style is something more broad and whole and affects almost all aspects of life, right? I love art and graphic design and occasionally share some of my finds on this blog. On the past few months I went one step further and added some delicious recipes on my Sunday bliss series. Now, starting on yesterday's post I feel I have some fashion gaps I need to fill as well. What I mean to say here is that you can have one style interpreted in all creative fields and when you put all the variables on the table, the moodboard created is something way more powerful than when showcasing one single part (like interior design for that matter). Today's post is an experiment. I'm dealing with a style and find examples in interiors, fashion, graphic design, cooking and art to express it. This particular style is a mix of many. As you can see from the top image, today's moodboard consists of a mix of 50% coastal, 20% country, 15% sophisticated and 15% casual style. The idea of such a mix came from a really inspiring post written by Brittany of A House That Lars Built (you should definitely read it!) on how to identify your own style. To tell you the truth, this post gave me some chills, like a real creative project ought to do. It was so fun finding the connecting line to all these photos! What do you think? I'd love to hear your feedback ^^
