I am such a sucker for those self-assessment quizzes! I take them every time I run into one.
Yesterday, in my Houzz weekly newsletter, I found a quiz asking me my “decorating style”.
Good question as I would be hard-pressed to define my “decorating style”.
I guess my style is a cross between “whatever amuses me” and “whatever I can talk my husband into”
When I took the quiz, the questions were a bit odd and sometimes I had to pick the best answer from the list given, even though my real answers to the questions were not included in the answer list. As a result, while I was taking the quiz, I was thinking it probably wouldn’t be very specific to me.
When I finished the quiz, it said I was a Transitional, which boiled down means “meeting in the middle” on style. At first I was like, that’s not me…then I realized that I answered the questions for both myself and my husband and our mixed style. As I thought about it, I guess it’s kind of appropriate at my house since my husband and I really don’t have the same style and we do a fair amount of “meeting in the middle”. I also have to say, I liked a fair amount of the pictures included in the Transitional style…maybe a bit more of me there than I realized.
Then I took I retook the quiz and just answered for myself and my tastes and it came out dead-on as a Traditional. Truer words were never
spoken written. As it related to me, and me alone, it was 100% spot on. According to the description, “…it’s really about comfort. Every element feels familiar, properly placed and predictable — in a good way.” Yup, that is me, me, me.
Hmmm…maybe this quiz captures more than I realized!
If you’d like to see what your decorating style might be, take the quiz here. At the end of the quiz, it will tell you your style and provide a link that further describes it.
