I did three posts at the beginning of March on changing styles and tastes in interior design. One on foyers, one on living rooms, and one on dining rooms. I had looked through some of my older design books and was struck by how much my tastes had broadened. I posted photos of specific pages I had marked in the older books along with photos of what I'm liking now. In the former posts, I have to say that while I'm drawn to the newer look, I still love the older, too. In the case of the bedroom then and now, it's pretty much just the now for me. I needed a break from scanning pages in the older design books, so I didn't get around to finishing with the bedrooms until now. Please share your thoughts. When I did this series, it was so interesting to read your comments. I had a very perceptive reader list for me the specific elements I'm drawn to now just from looking at the pictures I posted. I couldn't have verbalized it as it was just subconscious for me. But, it was so helpful for me to know specifically. Please tell me what you're thinking about how styles have changed. Have your preferences changed?
The following three are from my older design books.

The below photos are bedrooms I love now. I could be happy in each of them.

This photo shows elements in my bedroom that perfectly illustrate (for me) the changes in the last 15 years. I put this bedroom together that long ago and have moved it to two houses. When I created it, it was exactly what I loved. Now, as you can see from the photos above of what I prefer now, it's very different. A bedroom update is definitely in order!
