Step 1: Save Images
Step 2: Organize Your Thoughts
Now that you have all of your images in one place, take a look back through them. Once you've looked at a bunch of different things, you'll notice you don't love some of the images you saved as much as the others. Take some time to delete the ones you don't love as much and reorganize your thoughts.
Step 3: Notice Common Factors
Look through your images and notice the common factors that stand out to you. Maybe all of your living room images have wood coffee tables, light sofas, blue walls, gold light fixtures, etc. Take note of those different properties in your images. This will start showing you pieces you like most and help you figure out the style that suits you best!
Step 4: Identifying Your Style/Styles
It is pretty common that you'll like a blend of styles or more than one style - this is totally fine! You can probably point out the styles you like most, just by doing the first 3 steps. If you are not super familiar with the different styles, here are some details and images to help you differentiate the most common and popular styles.
