I love 'Beach Eclectic': a collection of old and new world objects, highlighted with tropical plants and shells to create a unified beachy casual, yet elegant and worldly look.
This is probably how I would describe my style most. I detest anything that looks too 'matchy-matchy' and like an interior that reflects the person living in it. I like to see souveneirs and shells picked up from the beach, and family portraits, and art work that's been passed down. I would hate to see all these personal objects and touches go away to the look from the pages of a Pottery Barn catelog (not that there is anything wrong with Pottery Barn, but it has to be in doses).
I have so many things that I love and cherish and no matter if they 'go' or not, I love them too much not to look at them everyday. This, however, can be dangerous for the clutter-prone so make sure to get a second opinion on how your guests feel in your room, if they feel smothered with 'things' you're going to have to cut back. I guess you want them to feel like they are getting to know you better while still feeling refreshed and comfortable.
