How would you describe the Midwestern design style? Even though I live in New York City, I still think of myself as a Midwesterner. I think Midwesterners like their homes to feel very comfortable, warm and welcoming with plenty of personal touches, like family photos and special pieces of furniture passed down in the family. And Midwesterners are exceptionally good at decorating their homes for the seasons — from wreaths to throw pillows. My mom is always changing up the accessories and flowers on her mantel and dining table. I love that — I think a lot of Midwesterners have a special knack for that kind of creative, DIY, quick-change decorating!
