Quiz: What's your interior design style?

Click on the pictures in this design quiz at Stylish Home to determine your decorating style. Brace yourself— the quiz promises to "delve into your design soul." The quiz "suspected" me to be Modern Eclectic, which apparently makes me soulmates with Andy Warhol, Scarlett Johannson, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Okay.

boo! it's broken!

Erin said...

Yea, it's not working for me either, Steph.

Grandma G said...

Broken, yup. Your bzillion readers must've overloaded it. I was partway through, got a phone call, and then couldn't finish it when I came back. Oh, well... I don't have much "style", anyway. ;)

steph k said...

"Cozy… not oversized - a hand crafted gem. To cook a grand meal in an elegant kitchen is your joy. A button down bedroom belies it's comfort. Your decorative canvas stretches to the property lines. A sense of rolling hills and vineyards surround this table. The graceful ceremony of sharing. Natural and neutral… save the color for your art. Wild and crazy days in your wonderful home."

So "me", right Jess? HAHAHA!

Park Avenue Cocktail
not sure what that means though!

Avlor said...

It's working again now. ;)

"A cozy retreat with nature all around. City living with all it's artisans provide the ingredients for lofty food ambitions. A sense of lightness for your bedroom. Connecting to the handcrafting of the artist, you sense a skill and some chance. Dinner is served auspiciously with Asian flair. Relax in a contemplative way. Pre-war, upper east side attitude. Formal as it may seem, your style won the west."

"Discriminating Utilitarian"

- Clint Eastwood
- Sean Connery
- Meryl Streep

Wealth and Brains :)
Graceful living in a well appointed home. A kitchen that is purposeful and always intact. The subtle refinements of your sleeping nest reflect a desire for order. Like the painter's brush, your composition is done in living color. Lake Cabin table for your salads and seafood. A lithe and agreeable cab - no meal required. On cobbled streets, character abounds. A creative and social space, your kitchen is managed competently by you.

I was Unpretentious Bon Vivant

- John Lennon

CarolAnn said...

Seaside Informal.

When I look around, though, it's more early thrift store meets not enough storage room, which is what happens when your mother moves in with her entire household contents.

kate said...

Unpretentious Bon Vinant. Yep, that's me! ;)

Renegade Behavior said...

"Utterly Modern".

Cozy… not oversized - a hand crafted gem. To cook a grand meal in an elegant kitchen is your joy. With everything else so fine, you can live with an unmade bed. Connecting to the handcrafting of the artist, you sense a skill and some chance. Set your table in a festive fare. The graceful ceremony of sharing. Pre-war, upper east side attitude. Meeting all the requirements for a stylish home, commencement begins. .

Suspected "Warehouse Chic"

I definitely went for warm, cozy pictures. Interesting since turquoise is by far my favorite color, and it's very cool. I wonder if my choices would have been different if it hadn't been -3 degrees when I got up this morning...

Bek said...

Handcrafted Obsession :)

Details...

The house at the end of the lane in the village by the sea. The "sit down" kitchen connects with family, friends and life style. Resort, retreat, getaway - all inside your bedroom. Art that definitely does not match the sofa. A sense of rolling hills and vineyards surround this table. The graceful ceremony of sharing. Pre-war, upper east side attitude. A creative and social space, your kitchen is managed competently by you..

Suspected "Handcrafted Obsession"

- Frank Lloyd Wright
- Grace Kelly
- Michael Caine

haha! Yeah... I could almost see this as my style. More like my style if I had unlimited resources. Right now it's more like "Fisher-Price has taken over your mortgage and will be demanding rent. Also, books are an obvious design decision"

Emily said...

Antiquated Espresso

Tom Waits
Katherine Hepburn
Humphrey Bogart...

though based on the descriptions I've seen I think I'm more Bespoke Classic.

A quite life… more simple, with your priorites in place. Country chic - a kitchen you live in. Hibiscus and an Ocean Breeze while you sleep. Art that definitely does not match the sofa.

Like a master painting, your projects unfold over long periods. Your relaxed table is enjoyed by all. Style cues of fun and discovery abound.

Elissa said...

I got "Antiquated Espresso," which I love just for the name. Basically, I think it means I'm super pretentious and love to call people "dahling."

Amber said...

Bespoke Classic :)

Becky said...

I love these silly quizzes. Not far off but there were some where I couldn't just choose one and one I didn't really like any of 'em!

Results: You most resemble a "California Country".
Details...

Cozy… not oversized - a hand crafted gem. Home cooked meals from a kitchen full of country. With everything else so fine, you can live with an unmade bed. Art that definitely does not match the sofa.

I was an "unmade bed", I think that is polite for mixing styles, thats true - but I like to make my bed!
By the way Bob Dylan is an unmade bed, too.

Anonymous said...

fun test to do...though it's a shame there are no picture to illustrate the kind of house style we are.

Sara @ House Bella said...

Form and function! Sounds right to me. And I guess I'm in good company with Alfred Hitchcock, Bill Gates and Martha Graham.

Rose@craftymcgee said...

I swore I wasn't going to waste time with these this weekend - but I'm glad I did. I got my first big laugh of the day!

I'm an "Unmade Bed" (too true) - just like Woody Allen, Bob Dylan and...wait for it....Tina Fey!

Oh, internets, how you amuse me.....

dawn said...

Antiquated Espresso

Tom Waits
Katherine Hepburn
Humphrey Bogart...

The way they describe it is actually pretty close to how I would describe my design sense. You know, since "heading for an episode of Hoarders" isn't a choice.

Linda said...

Wealth and Brains... Oprah, Michelle Obama...
Yes, total logic here.. they have the wealth, I have some brains... explains all the years on my psychiatrist sofa.. I have the taste for the quality, tasteful life, and the budget of a pigeon.

***I have not spent my life on a psychiatrist sofa *** (my psychiatrist has a lawn chair)

dreamalittle said...

I'm an "Antiquated Espresso"? I have always secretly wanted to be Bogart though ;)

Details...
A quite life… more simple, with your priorites in place. Your kitchen emanates a timeless warmth. A bedroom with distinct character - warm and charming. Your decorative canvas stretches to the property lines. Set your table in a festive fare. The glass of red - a highly recommended habit. Pre-war, upper east side attitude. A den of discussion for artists and intellectuals..

Suspected "Antiquated Espresso"
- Tom Waits
- Humphrey Bogart
- Kathryn Hepburn

Jess said...

Willy Nelson? Tina Fey? Psychiatrists with lawn chairs? I'm greatly enjoying your comments, people.

Clare said...

I'm a Modern Eclectic but I like the sound of an "Unpretentious Bon Vivant".
And what do I have to do to be a "Bucolic Artisan"?

Jess said...

Clare, I believe you'll need to move to a pasture among a herd of sheep and begin weaving baskets.

Anonymous said...

I picked up seaside informal, no surprise there... whitewash + open windows + exposed beams = pretty much yes.

I don't make my bed though. Encourages bedbugs! Also: time consuming. Also: I like the way it looks better unmade.

My mother is constantly horrified by this. I think she thought that when I graduated to adulthood I'd start tucking the blankets in. Nope.

Carla said...

I ended up with "Park Avenue Cocktail" - Marlene Dietrich, Audrey Hepburn, & Frank Sinatra. This was so fun! Thanks for sharing!

Patty said...

"Old Money Extravagance"

Cool. So where's my inheritance check?

Aren't Winston Churchill, Anthony Hopkins and Greta Garbo all considered, um, kind of eccentric, for lack of a better term?

Maybe I should find a psychiatrist.

Thanks for the best laugh I've had in a while!

lori said...

I also got "winsome charm".

This was hilarious. I loved it and am so happy to pass it along!

Also, your blog has inspired so many of my craft projects. I am always excited to see a new post.
