Everyday Exuberance

Last July, we enjoyed exploring American Style here at Apartment Therapy. In her first book, Fresh American Spaces, designer Annie Selke created a primer with five aesthetics for the modern home. Which are you?

The founder and creative force behind home textile companies Pine Cone Hill, Dash & Albert Rugs, and fabric collection Annie Selke Home, Annie is based in the Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts. Last week, she visited Boston and I got to meet her at an event for the book. Annie herself is warm and welcoming, and clearly knows her design.

With a bit of Annie's aesthetic in each one, Fresh American Spaces is a guide on identifying and blending amongst 5 different styles:

Everyday Exuberance: Energizing, optimistic courageous, and colorful Refined Romantic: Elegant, uncluttered, dreamy, and decidedly feminine Happy Preppy: Simple, stylish, functional, and fun Nuanced Neutral: Subtle, serene, sophisticated, and anything but colorless Cultured Eclectic: Collected, curated, personal, and evocative

In addition to the book, the Fresh American website offers more inspiration and insight into each of the styles.

Personally, I'm Everyday Exuberance with a bit of Cultured Eclectic. Tell us, which style(s) are you?
