    I feel like our style resembles Italy. Old world meets more modern design. I love to mix them both, since I can't choose a fav.

    I think also USA. We love clean lines and uncluttered style, but we have some fun family antiques that we enjoy incorporating. I have never thought about this question though, so I will continue to think about it.

    Japan with it's minimalism or zen style is a perfect example of my own personal design style. There is something about the balance between space and objects that I find very elegant. I have a strong liking towards that openness feel of a room, the warm glow of indirect lighting, and incorporating elements of nature inside. There is an instant attraction to the color used as well. Great question! :)
