Style Schmyle

So, I'm officially addicted to Craigslist. In the last twenty-four hours, I purchased a sweet chair for $15, and picked up an AC window unit in Glencoe for FREE! I've been trolling Craigslist and Freecycle, and just happened to be online when the post for the AC popped up. I nearly threw out my back getting it into my car, but assuming I can get it into my window without killing anyone, my August is looking at lot more tolerable.

The chair is super-comfy, and Parker thinks it's her new bed.

I also hit up a C&B sale and bought some accessories for my kitchen.

They coordinate well with my dishes, which are one of the few items I own that give me a sense of direction style-wise.

Another being my bedding . . .

I'm only recently coming to the idea of basing design choices around a few items you know you love. It's common sense, but I live so much inside my head, I hardly notice my surroundings. Working on improving them has been a stretch for me, but I'm getting into it.

If anyone can give me a name for my style based on what I've posted here, I would love it. I love having names for things.

Yeah, that name would be "eclectic." I know, because my kitchen matches yours. Really. I should take pictures and show you. :)

Yeah, that's what I came up with when I tried to define myself, but what does it mean??? Anything goes? Surely not. I need structure.

How about, as another poster suggested, "drunk and homeless"? :)

I love Parker in that chair.
