Which Interior Design Trend Suits You?

When it comes to my home, it's full of a mix of designs. I like to make each room their own and try different styles in each. I make sure each room is functional and practical for what it is used for, but then I like to go a bit mad with the colours - I'm really not a monochrome type of girl!
