How surprised was I when I clicked through the series of photos that appealed to me and was presented with my results?
Metro? I’m metro? Uh, no, I’m a suburban girl, through and through. Right? But then, I started exploring their sample rooms for this style, and I quite liked three of them.
Yeah, I can do Metro.
1. Look at those white vases. I know the whole “white grouping” thing is so popular as to be almost overdone these days, but I really am drawn to it.
2. The woven bench.
3. Lots of neutrals with splashes of color.
4. Geometric patterns.
The only thing missing is a certain measure of softness…something cozy. I’m reminded of homes where I babysat as a teenager, when I was chilled after the kids had gone to bed and couldn’t for the life of me find an afghan or a quilt to cuddle under on the sofa. Add a little coziness (and a personal touch or two) to these rooms, and I think they’d be close to perfect.
