Aloha Friday - New Year's Eve

For a change of pace, I decided to join up with Kailani at An Island Life (see link at the end of this post) for Aloha Friday.


Here's the idea:
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too.

Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link [at An Island Life]. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!
My question is about furniture.  In what style is your home (or your favorite room) decorated?

Here's my answer:  When I was single, I always looked at modern decor, but what I actually acquired was what was on sale!  So my apartment was furnished with matching--but cheap--furniture.  When DH and I were setting up our first home, we chose a traditional style for the living room.  We saved up to purchase a bedroom furniture set that we really love.  It's a Shaker style set in brown cherry wood, and we hope it'll last for the rest of our lives!

  1. I have several styles. Country, log Cabin(60's) Tradtional, and Old World. I like them all.

  2. I don't know that we really have a style. I like all things country. Our furniture is definitely nothing fancy (not with 4 kids at home) but it matches and is comfortable. So I guess our style is laid back. LOL

    Congrats on the blog giveaway wins, by the way!

  3. I have an eclectic mix, though they all match. My favorite, though, are the cool antique pieces I've collected over the years. ;)

  6. I have a mixture of styles going on here. I try to buy things on sale that we can afford. The only good firm things we have are a good bed and the couches in the living room.

    Happy New Year!

  7. My fave room is the livingroom, it is decorated kind of beachy, white couches, distressed wood furniture, always a work in progress!
    Happy New Year!

  8. um, cluttered, we don't really have a style...I would say it's probably leaning towards modern, but we have a lot of hand me down furniture

  9. Not sure we really have a style. Just kind of found things that we like. I do tend to gravitate toward more modern items though.

  10. Happy New Year! The style I like is modern, but I haven't been able to do everything quite yet. My favorite stuff is my bed (king-sized!) and dresser - modern. :-)
