Does Your House Match Your Outfit?

Ever notice how the style of clothing you gravitate towards is similar to the style of your decor?  Lately, i've been spending a fair bit of time on Pinterest.  Perhaps more time than I should... And what I've noticed is that the 'My Style' Pins correspond to my 'For the Home' pins.

I really lean towards classic clothes that are simple, tailored and casual.  I like to invest in nice quality for certain items, like a great winter jacket or handbag, or even a pair of jeans.  But other items I buy on the cheap, say layering pieces like t-Shirts or tanks in fun colours.  But basically, my daily wardrobe consists of jeans, a tank or tee and a cardigan.  These boards from pinterest reflect my fashion style:

So, since I dress myself with neutral, casual, simple clothing, I should probably also surround myself with a neutral, casual, simple space.... right?

This approach makes sense to me.  I've often seen dressy, formal spaces in magazines that I love the look of but I just don't think I would be able to live with that for the long run.  I don't really buy in to trends, sticking with time honoured classics that I won't tire of quickly.  These spaces from Pinterest are classics:

But you will notice that these spaces aren't completely neutral.  There are pops of colour and pattern for interest.  Sort of  like my wardrobe.  Makes sense, right?
