Whether it’s a mountain lake house or a tropical getaway, coastal homes have a charm all their own. Bright and cheerful with windows galore for taking in the spectacular views, these homes are all about relaxing in an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Owners have a cool, calm demeanor and enjoy entertaining. If this is your home, you are likely to be a classic, preppy type who loves to take in the sights from the comfort of your own domain, reflective of the views outside.


This trending style has its roots deep in the past. Think exposed brick, pipes and beams, rich, raw woods, and lots of steel. Industrial homes could even be converted from an old factory building. The look is unique and casual, often using found or reclaimed objects in the design. Owners are creative, eclectic individuals with a deep love of history and utilitarian style, and chances are they have at least one tattoo.

In stark contrast to the previous style, Victorian homes are ornate and well-dressed with details around every corner. The grand turrets and colorful accents are typical of the style. Owners are interested in fine art, prefer things a certain way and are very detail-oriented. That being said, they are often playful and fun as well.

Last but certainly not least, the modern style is bold and exciting. Extreme angles and pops of color, as well as multiple roof lines and mixed materials are all important aspects of this popular style. Homes are cool and collected with minimal decor and landscaping. If this is your home, you like simplicity, but also must have the best. You look ahead to the future with great enthusiasm and believe the past should stay behind as innovations spring you forward.

No matter what type of home you have, it can become a reflection of your personality over time as you make the space your own. The key is in taking advantage of the aspects of your house’s architectural style that make you feel at home.
