What’s Your Style?

BHG

I‘m always a sucker for those little quizzes that help you figure out your decorating style. Maybe it is because I love so many styles. It is always fun to see which ones capture the real you! I think I mentioned this last week, but HomeGoods has a fun & quick little quiz on their site right now. I just took it myself and I think it came out pretty much like me, what do you think?!

Melissa, you are a Country Classic

You have a naturally refined sensibility with an appreciation for tradition and history. You value beauty, craftsmanship, and family heirlooms, but you like to open things up with pretty, easy-going pieces like painted wood or distressed furniture, lovely florals and other patterns, and bunches of fresh flowers that give your home a breezy, relaxed feeling. You love unique finds, have a thrifty, creative side, and can make these things work together.

You value comfort. Your home is a warm and open friendly place, and you feel happiest when everyone is cared for and relaxed in your space. Elements like pillows, throws, overstuffed furniture, and good lighting set the mood. You may also enjoy layering different fabrics or mixing patterns to create a cozy effect.

Now, it is your turn. Go take the quiz and tell me your style! The results also give you a list of things to make your home happier. I like that.

PS. I’m working on the HomeGoods entries…wow, you guys have flooded my inbox and links with lots of rooms that are worthy! It might take me a couple of weeks (sorry!) to look through them all and choose the winners. But I’ll get to them, I promise!

Here is another style quiz post & link, if you want a fun second opinion!

  4. How funny, I did a his and her style post this week! And I even used that Homegoods quiz. I am a country classic too, but he is a Earthy Modern. Check out my blog to see how that works out in our respective dream homes LOL. Decorating a neverending challenge but always fun.

  8. Somehow, I came out “Global…” something. But that’s not really how I feel inside or how my house looks… Your description of Country Casual better suits me. I may need to take the quiz again when I’m a little more awake. :-)

  9. That was fun – I am Bohemian Classic – which I would have expected.

    You have a refined sensibility and bring a sense of history and tradition into your decor. You appreciate how symmetrical arrangements and beautiful, well-crafted pieces create a solid foundation to a room. But you like to shake up this restraint with objects and accessories that express your personality and your love of other cultures. When traveling, you seek out unique objects that reflect what you love, and you use them in a sophisticated way. You want people to feel comfortable in your home, and cozy chairs, ethnic fabrics, unique pieces, and even a little touch of quirk or humor give your house a laid-back, Bohemian flair.

  17. I have taken other style quizzes and they were never right. But this one is right on the spot… Bohemian casual. My biggest challenge is unify. I do have a hard time unifying my styles because I love them all.

    Good luck going through the entries. I’m holding my breath hoping I win one of the gift cards because our master room really needs it. It’s even worst now that I’m decluttering the house for a yard sale this weekend. It’ll be nice to get rid of all our junk!

  18. I am Country Eclectic. I am surprised at how much of it is true. My ultimate style is shabby chic.

    Jennifer, you are a Country Eclectic
    You have wide-ranging interests and influences and therefore appreciate a mix of styles, periods, and objects. You would never use a matching suite of furniture or could stand a home that seemed cookie-cutter. But you love the breezy, layered look of wonderfully personal beach houses and the happy florals of English cottages. Bringing the outdoors in makes you happy: a little chintz or ruffle or weathered furniture, urns filled with tennis rackets, colored glasses filled with cut flowers, vintage-looking, mixed tea cups, and all things that give a sense of a happy, simple life.
    You value comfort. Your home is a warm and open friendly place, and you feel happiest when everyone is cared for and relaxed in your space. Elements like pillows, throws, overstuffed furniture, and good lighting set the mood. You may also enjoy layering different fabrics or mixing patterns to create a cozy effect.

    That was fun. Thanks

    Thanks for sharing the fun quiz! I came out Country Casual. It was surprisingly accurate. It even gave me ideas for outdoors rooms that were exactly what I already had in mind. Off to take the second quiz!

  28. Always love style and personality quizzes. I came out Bohemian Casual in this one. That’s certainly a lot simpler than what I try to come up with as my “style” — European Country, contemporary traditional with a pop of Hollywood Regency and drama. lol!

  29. How fun! I was just thinking the other day how much my style had changed since I was a “romantic” girl getting married.

    I am a glamorous classic, which describes me pretty well right now. The problem I have is that with four children and the fact that we have moved 11 times in 14 years I have never gotten to show my style. It makes me want to get busy!!

    Have a fabulous weekend!

  31. Thanks for pointing out the quiz, I was surprised how on target it was. I am a Bohemian Classic.

  32. Melissa, this was fun. Here’s mine.

    Beverly, you are a Bohemian Classic

    You have a refined sensibility and bring a sense of history and tradition into your decor. You appreciate how symmetrical arrangements and beautiful, well-crafted pieces create a solid foundation to a room. But you like to shake up this restraint with objects and accessories that express your personality and your love of other cultures. When traveling, you seek out unique objects that reflect what you love, and you use them in a sophisticated way. You want people to feel comfortable in your home, and cozy chairs, ethnic fabrics, unique pieces, and even a little touch of quirk or humor give your house a laid-back, Bohemian flair.

    You value serenity. While there are probably a lot of interesting things in your home, they are joined by your taste or a certain palette that keeps them in harmony. You appreciate the beauty in simple forms. Whether fancy or plain, you appreciate things that are well made and function as well as they look. You also have a strong respect for the environment and craftsmanship. You care about how things are made, and how they are used.

  36. Hello Melissa,

    I took a quiz to see what kind of style that fits with me. It’s Earthy Casual. It seems that this quiz was more accurate. Of course my challenge in my home is organizing! I am grabbing some time to organize while my son is at school all day. : )

    Thank you for sharing.

  37. I love taking quizzes and tests that give me insight into myself and my style. My results were right on the money . . . country casual, and I really liked the colors they suggested for paint . . . very warm and clean. Thanks for the link to the quiz!

  38. Huh – I didn’t expect to agree with the results – but I do! I’m Bohemian Classic…

  39. Country Classic too!

  40. It set me at Earthy Casual. I’m impressed with this quiz. I think this is the first time that I’ve taken one of these things that seem to peg me correctly.

  41. That was fun and actually pretty accurate! Here’s my result:
    Global Casual

    Your home is warm and inviting, and expresses your curiosity and zest for life. You have wide-ranging interests, and an appreciation for many different cultures and ways of life. You bring a sense of the far-flung world into your home through its décor through unique or artisan-made treasures. Objects in your home tend to reflect your personality, your passions, your values, and your eclectic interests. This gives your home a sense of intrigue and comfort.

    You value creativity. You are stylish and fun loving, and can be an inspiration to others. You have a natural sense of drama, and you know you have to be willing to take risks—whether with colors, finishes, furniture choices, or ideas—for your home to stand out. Your home can be happy and lively and the place all of your friends want to be.

  44. I’m a country classic, also. The color chart was dead on!! Fun!

    Hope you are doing well, Melissa.

  45. I’m Country Casual too.

  46. Pinky, you are an Earthy Casual
    You’re interested in creating a welcoming home where people feel comfortable and happiness flourishes. You appreciate the warmth and individuality of natural materials and handcrafted things and are inspired by colors and forms from nature. You love mixing up different textures and are sensitive to the tactile qualities of objects. Your style is grounded and solid, not flighty or frilly. And you are never taken in by the trend of the moment.

    You value order. You feel happiest if your home is well organized. You understand that when your house is in order, your mind feels clearer. Rather than a lot of meaningless objects or overly-designed items, you are happier with a few well-placed things. Your home is your respite from a busy life. Try to avoid letting things into your home that you don’t really love.

    This is the result I got from the quiz and it is right on!

  47. It won’t let me… my zip code isn’t reccognised… being in Australia and all. May I borrow yours? ;)

  48. hi Melissa

    I went to take the quiz but it’s not working now, don’t know what I’ll be…

  50. Elegant Classic is what they called it but then talked about appreciating timeless appeal rather then trends. Which must be why my beach cottage style in shabby shades of white is working ?

    Thanks for the link Melissa, interesting questions and ideas.

  51. I got earthy modern – which is
    You keep up with culture, style, and trends, but have an appreciation for timeless forms and simple lines. You value good design, quality craftsmanship, and prefer the streamlined to the overly embellished or cluttered. You also appreciate the warmth and individuality of natural materials and handcrafted things and are inspired by colors and forms from nature. This contrast is what makes your home intriguing and comfortable. You love mixing up different textures and are sensitive to the tactile qualities of objects. Your style is grounded and solid, not flighty or frilly.

    You value creativity. You are stylish and fun loving, and can be an inspiration to others. You have a natural sense of drama, and you know you have to be willing to take risks—whether with colors, finishes, furniture choices, or ideas—for your home to stand out. Your home can be happy and lively and the place all of your friends want to be.

    It was an interesting quiz. I found that I picked things I might not have expected picking. When I really thought about it I picked the less stark options – true modern might not be what I really am comfortable with. Which I never really thought about. I really considered that I was entirely retro modern and in the end, I dont think I am.

  58. Hi Melissa. I’m Earthy Casual which doesn’t surprise me at all. But now what? lol. My “beloved” (51 and 54 I just can’t call him my boyfriend) have decided to live together. His home is 1970’s College Dorm Room and I brought virtually nothing with me. A story that doesn’t belong here…lol. Where do I begin to make this a home that we can both love? I have to work around big screen TV’s and man who could live in a cave..lol. I also wanted to mention that with all of the demands of daily life, I always feel a little more at peace after reading your blog. Thank you Melissa. Happy fall to you and yours.
