By now you've figured out you may be Traditional, Contemporary or Country, with all their trendy additional names, but what if you are NONE of those? Then my guess is you are ECLECTIC in your decorating tastes. That means you like something of each style, all pulled together. It doesn't really work well if you just collect and buy without a plan, so first and foremost with this style is to 1. start with a plan (an eboard, for example) and 2. pick a color scheme.

Is your style eclectic?
