9 out of 12! And a fierce desire to do some retro home decor shopping!

i rocked this quiz with only one wrong, i guessed chicago, that was wrong. wish i would have been alive back then!

Jess said...

I got one wrong, too: the room divider question. I wanted to choose the folding screen, just not an asian one. That Chicago question made me smile, since they asked for a state and Chicago was one of the choices.

I scored a 10! I love MCM.

Only 10 out of 12, I'm ashamed of myself! I love mid-centry design, should definitely have done better. It was a really fun quiz though, great way to goof off for a few minutes. :-)

I scored an 8, not too bad... especially since this isn't my favorite decor style.

I thought the Chicago question was hilarious - state? Chicago? Ummm...

11 out of 12 and I got the same question wrong which Jess did -- I really wanted to choose the screen but... not the Asian screen. My aunt's house which was built around 1965 is very mid-century modern and she's done little to change it over the years. I have to say the Danish Modern furniture in the living room is far more comfortable than the over-stuffed casual furniture in the family room...

I didn't see orange or teal in the wall color, so I quit after the first question.
