Quiz: Find your IKEA style

I saw this quiz mentioned on Curbly and had to give it a whirl. IKEA has an online tool that will tell you what your design style is. Of course it's based on their own product line, so your style choices are limited to what they sell. (Sorry, Southwest lovers. No Navajo rugs for you here.) I came up "Modern Urban" and was diagnosed as 60% Modern, 40% Scandinavian, and 0% Country. However, I've spent half my life on a farm and have Scandinavian ancestors, so maybe I should be 50% Country, 40% Scandinavian, and 10% Modern. Hmmm. Regardless, I am definitely 0% Southwest, because adobe does nothing for me. Unless it's computer software.

I'm modern balanced: 60% modern, 20% Scandinavian, 20% country. Now if only I had an Ikea store nearby, I could be out shopping properly.

I'm 60% Scandinavian and 40% Modern... Scandinavian Original. Which is funny because I'm just an artsy Swiss girl with an eye for design. At least they got the "original" part right. I <3 Ikea!

I always love the quizzes you find! Turns out I'm Scandinavian Original, which says "you can't apply one style like a blanket." I think that's pretty dead on since my design style is usually a mixture of all kinds of random things that I like. Thanks for the fun work break :)

Hanna said...

Scandinavian original, 80 scandinavian, 20 percent country.

Kristina said...

"Country natural." I definitely look like the hick among the group: 80% country, 20% scandinavian, 0% modern. There's no little ducks anywhere in my house, I swear!

Rosie&James said...

Also Country natural- 60% Country and 40% Scandinavian. I love ikea, but I sometimes have to work to find stuff that really fits my style and isn't just really cool or creative.

John said...

You always find the best stuff, Jessica. Hope you don't mind us passing it along to our readers. I'm Scandinavian Classic. I guess it's in Ikea's best interest to make us all a little Scandinavian, eh?

I don't know HOW you suck me into these things, Jess, but...

Amazingly enough, the Swede/Dane from Minnesota is Scandinavian Classic

This was great. I was balanced modern
60% modern, 20% scandinavian, 20% country.

The only problem is that I love one of the textures that I chose, but I don't know what it is. I thought it was a rug but I can't find it.

Baba said...

No surprises here. My style is country antique. LOL With a Victorian Stone Farmhouse it should be.

shabs said...

june said...

60% Country 40% Scandinavian Hmmm I thought I had at least some modern in me. No Ikeas close to me, but I seem to have picked up one of those great plastic Ikea shopping bags somewhere!

Grandma G said...

cjh said...

Scandinavian Original--40% each for Scandinavian and Country, 20% Modern. I think that's about right...

Meghan/Blatant Animal-Related Idiocy said...

Modern original - 60% Modern, 40% Scandinavian.

I love horses and grew up riding and plan to go back to it someday, but I like my country in the barn, not in my house.

Then again, I rode hunter/jumper, so I guess that explains me being a countryless snob :)

TranquilityKnots said...

This is fun!

The Nicholsons said...

Jingle said...
