In interior design, it pays to ask yourself, "How do I want my new room to feel?"

It's a better question than, "What style am I looking for?"

We can all talk about how we want a room to feel. Cozy, bright, clean, soft, airy, or sultry, for example.

Describing a style is harder. It begs for precise vocabulary that we don't have on the tips of our tongues.

It's harder to invite others into the room we're imagining when we tag it with a style. They're no more likely to know the jargon than we are.

So, I'll ask you, "How do you want your new room to feel?
