Decorating style

How do you approach decorating in your home? What's the most important thing?

Decorating, for me, has to first and foremost inspire and lift my spirits. It then needs to work with my lifestyle (being as work/family/kid friendly and cost effective as possible). That is basically how I approach home design.

If a decorating look or feel inspires me, I do whatever I can to make it work in my home (taking into consideration the bones of the house — making sure it will actually go). I try to be as creative and out-of-box as I can while using what I already have. Everything else, I either make or try to get for a bargain — and splurge when it's absolutely necessary.
