What’s your style?


I’m not always a big fan of quizzes, but I saw this one and was intrigued. It was quick. You look at about 20+ rooms and rate whether you love or hate them. The quiz didn’t tell me anything I didn’t already know, but it was fun to look at all the pretty rooms. I’m a home decor junkie and sucker for aesthetics. For those that want a better idea of where their tastes fall, here is the link. If you want to compare, here are my results.
function switchCategories(target, cat){ $(“.morelink”).removeClass(“selected”); $(target).addClass(“selected”); $(“.styleimage, .blurb”).css(“display”, “none”); $(“.” + cat + “img, .” + cat + “txt”).css(“display”, “block”); $(target).blur(); } function signupNewUser(){ signupAction = ‘planner’; loginAction = ‘StyleEngine/results’; gotoSignUp(); } function switchCategories(target, cat){ $(“.morelink”).removeClass(“selected”); $(target).addClass(“selected”); $(“.styleimage, .blurb”).css(“display”, “none”); $(“.” + cat + “img, .” + cat + “txt”).css(“display”, “block”); $(target).blur(); } function signupNewUser(){ signupAction = ‘planner’; loginAction = ‘StyleEngine/results’; gotoSignUp(); }

Your personal style is a mix of 3 specific styles:

Contemporary

So fresh and clean! Antiques? No thanks! Vintage collections and clutter of any type? Not for you! You like your space new and sleek. Each piece is chosen carefully as though it were a piece of art, and your love of minimalism is expressed throughout each room. Furniture has clean lines and geometric shapes are preferred.

You’re not afraid of color β€” in fact, bold color options only highlight the minimal items you choose for your home. But the key is clean. To master the minimalist interior you not only have to be selective in the few furniture items you bring into the space, you must also find a way to hide all of the real-life items as well.

Vintage Modern

Flea Market, anyone? You know you are drawn to modern furniture and interiors, and yet you don’t like a space that feels cold and sterile. And who could blame you? That’s why Vintage Modern is so appealing to you. Though the backdrop of the room, the walls and windows, are many times white or monochromatic, the furniture and accessories have the color, shape and texture to bring the warmth into the space.

The great thing about Vintage Modern is ease of mixing different styles in the one space. You can have a new modular sofa mixed with a great pair of chairs that your grandmother purchased in the late 1950’s. The new and old work appear as though they were destined for each other. Even if you don’t have time for swap meets and garage sales, so many of the mid-century pieces were so great that they have been remade and mimicked year after year.

Modern Elegance

Variety is the spice of life! And nowhere is this truer than in the design of your home. You may love contemporary, but wish it wasn’t quite so cold and austere, or perhaps you’re drawn to traditional rooms but you’d like to create a less cluttered and busy space. Transitional Style is here to marry those apparent contradicting designs.

And guess what? It’s the contradictions that make the mix of contemporary and traditional so successful. The result is an elegant room that appeals to young and old alike. A sofa with modern lines blends seamlessly with a pair of traditional chairs. New fabrics work so well on antique pieces. It turns out that modern art looks even more exciting above a collection of traditional pieces. The room feels simple and sophisticated, elegant and hip.

If you take the quiz, please post your results in the comments section. I’d love to see where my blog friends’ tastes fall.

  1. How fun!! I took the quiz and it was pretty much dead-on. I blogged about my results – rustic revival, cottage chic, and french eclectic. This is my first time checking out your blog, I popped over here from your comment on the sisal rugs. Here’s my not-really-a-good answer: Yes, they’re fine to have with dogs. I have 4 dogs, and sisal/seagrass/etc. wears like steel. BUT – they won’t necessarily last as long as a traditional rug simply because you can’t truly clean them. You can blot, you can use the nature’s miracle, but the key is to get them to dry quickly. If they are saturated and left wet, they will water mark. Sisals with striations in them work well to hide lots of little marks/stains/etc., but the light solid-color ones will show things. But, that being said, small accidents aren’t HUGE problems, but if they keep up or your dog is sick, it may ruin the rug. The plus side is that they’re not super expensive. The downside is: you have to get another rug. But, then again, nothing is 100% stain-proof. So, sorry to not be more able to answer your question. I like them, and I have dogs, so I tell people they’re fine. And you can get stuff out of them if you get to it quickly enough – I got sangria out of mine by rinsing and blotting with club soda!!! I’d say to get a smaller rug (like a 3 x 5) just to kind of see if you like it. Rachel (from EAD Living)

  2. It says I’m a mix of French Eclectic; Vintage Modern and Hollywood Couture. The French Eclectic is a bit puzzling. Very cool quiz though, I love this stuff. πŸ™‚
