Take a Style Quiz!

I am a schizophrenic when it comes to furniture styles. When I walk into a shabby chic room, I suddenly love all things Rachel Ashwell. But then I'll go stay at an inn in Charleston, and I'll covet anything refined and antique. And then I walk into my family room-- where I'm apparently a huge fan of Fisher Price. (We call it the Great Bug Invasion of '07). It seems I know what I like when I see it, but until I see it, I have no idea what I like! See, schizophrenic.

Which is a problem given that I'm planning a little redo of my family room furniture this year (I hope, I hope). I am having the hardest time nailing down a style to direct my choices!

So, I found this little online quiz from Sproost to be very helpful. (Wendy at the Shabby Nest clued me in about it.) It helped me categorize my craziness into three distinct styles:

I'm 36% French Eclectic:

36% Classic:

and 28% Wine Country:

I guess that makes me a classic French drunk. teehee.

But Sproost neglected one very important design consideration.

I am, after all, 100% Bug:

that's so true! no matter how cute my living room looks when it's all decorated, it inevitably to filled with trains and toys and baby stuff! oh well.. we'll probably miss all the clutter when our kids are grown! lora

Lora, you are so right! One day, my halls will be silent, my laundry will be done, and my family room will be perfect. And I'll be sad and miss the mess.

I'm right there with you Liz! I was quite a variety too on this quiz with 50% classic, 33% nantucket, and 17% cottage chic. Quite a mix! The only thing classic about my house is legos, trains, balls, and more toys. We have what I would like to think as organized clutter (at least I'm consistent with my style being an oxymoron too) and I've learned to accept it and actually enjoy it with my OCD and all. :)

I enjoyed the quiz...I was 50/50 French Eclectic/Classic! I just wish that I could afford to pay someone to redecorate my house that way (with room for the train table, tractors, and dolls ,whicht are sure to come my way)!

I did the quiz- it was fun! I am 50% Modern Elegance, 50% Rustic Revival. I think I'm more jacked up than you.

I can sooo relate! I read where someone calls it "inspiration overload". :) I took the quiz and mine came back with Nantucket style, which is pretty close to what I'm usually drawn to. But it could be different next week... lol
