Quiz: HomeGoods Stylescope | How About Orange

Quiz: HomeGoods Stylescope

A little fun for Friday: take a quiz from HomeGoods to help you determine your decorating style. Created by Deborah Needleman, former editor-in-chief of Domino magazine, the test also offers tips for how to fix up your space. I was deemed an "Earthy Modern" (nice) but my "Happy Home Colors" were all tints of lavender (no thanks). See how you turn out!

Hmmm! I'm Earthy Casual & my colors are yellows & oranges. While I like those colors, I don't have any in my home!

Jezebella said...

I got "Bohemian Classic," and a bunch of oranges for my "happy colors." I'm actually more of a purple/lavender person. Perhaps we should trade?

Mamalang said...

I'm Elegant Classic. Which would be my style totally if I didn't live with a man and 3 kids...lol.

Grandma G said...

Lavender?! YOU??? Haha!

And you know I have no style.

Glamorous classic for me. The colour palette is actually rather close to what I would want.

Although completely not what I have now. Sadface!

Grandma G said...

For the record, I'm a Country Classic! :)

And are you ready for this on the colors???

They're oranges and yellows!!!

What have you done to me?!?!

Mum

I got the damn lavender colors too - it's because of the flowers and accessories - weren't any good colors for me there (fall tones are me!)

I'm a Country Classic

Sarah said...

I am the same as Grandma G. The results are posted on my blog.

Thanks for the fun!

Hilary said...

I'm Bohemian Classic (accurate) and got orange and yellows (possibly a little too bright for me for decorating!). Thanks for sharing the quiz :)

Wow, they pretty much nailed it with me, "Dramatic Modern". I like the look of modern furniture, bold colors & geometric designs, but with some ornate decorations for the room too, which is exactly what they said in the description.

And yes, the colors seemed to be based on the flowers, which I don't really agree with.

Kat said...

I'm Dramatic Modern. Which is funny. My home is MCM throughout. I keep looking at hollywood regency things and would like to mix them in but can't figure out a way to make them look good. That would be the Dramatic aspect of the modern. Obviously I have strong feelings about adding the Drama! My colors were yellow and orange. So not me. Thanks for pointing out the fun quiz!

Lisette said...

That was fun to do, although the outcome wasn't a surprise at all :)

Brynna [Brynna Begins] said...

I'm Global Modern with yellows and oranges. Pretty accurate, I'd say!

tinajo said...

Fun - have to give it a try! :-D

ros said...

I was Country Eclectic which is exactly right but the colours were yellow/orange which are not really my favourites. I like pink, red, green, blue...

carla felix said...

dramatic modern for me! my happy home colours were peach, mauve, brown, yellow and orange which i didn't like at first but now that i think about it, i like the colours separately but not together fun quiz. thanks!

Patti said...

I'm earthy casual with colours in the orange/yellow spectrum! It made me laugh because the colours are almost the exact ones I'm using in a quilt I'm doing right now! Thanks for this fun quiz.

Anna said...

Mine was Earthy Modern and spot on! I love yellows oranges and greens and have lots in my home mixed in with taupes and browns. Fun thanks for sharing!

kansasgirl1 said...

Elegant Classic - that's me! And my colors were perfect, too - oranges and golds. Comfort, warm and friendly - that's my style :)

Glam Classic!

Have you seen what Deborah Needleman is doing now? It's the Wall Street Journal's monthly magazine. It's fabulous. It comes out on the last weekend of the month. Totally different from Domino. A lot of their writers are working on the WSJ's weekend Off Duty section, which is also excellent.

I am An Earthy Modern! The answers to me were pretty much what I figured- My Design Challenge is to Maximize, my happy home are browns and taupes. I would throw a little green in their as well

Bek said...

Another Country Casual with oranges and yellows :)

I'd never really say I'm country casual, but the colors were right on

Celeste said...

I was deemed an "Elegant Classic" -- which, I'd say is pretty true. Colors suggested were grays with a few tans... love!

The Needle Shop said...

So funny, these questions seem so dumb, then they totally got me - Global Casual with reds, pinks and greys. Said i need to "unify". whatever. Jumbled is a style.

Jess said...

Ha. I don't think I've heard of "Jumbled" before, but if you say so. :)

Jess said...

Pigtown, I've heard good things about the WSJ magazine, but haven't checked it out yet. Thanks for the reminder!

Pat said...

I came out "Earthy Casual" with shades of blue. The description kind of nailed me, too!

Naomi said...

Bohemian Eclectic. I never would have thought it. Love the blues, greens and lavenders though.

Kylie said...

love your blog! so fun and helpful! glad i found you via my friends at kinfolk!

Ellie said...

Glamorous eclectic for me. So true! More is really more, forget less!

Molly said...

How funny, all my colors came up orange. While I do love it, it's really best for me as a companion to the purples and greens I adore.

pak said...

Wow, that was pretty accurate for me...Earthy Modern. I had two Happy Home colors on my main living room walls already!

Denise Laborde said...

Bohemian Classic - didn't even know that was a style. And yellow as my happy colors? Nah.

honey{pumpkin}pie said...

Ooh I got Bohenmian Casual. The colors were perfect and the discription true. I had actually used a couple of the happy colors in my bathroom.

Thanks for posting this!

Sylko said...

Country Casual with an ORANGE color palette! I'm not so sure about the Country part, but the Casual part is definitely me.

Laura said...

Wow, so interesting! The quiz nailed me as "country classic" but my happy colors ... dark brown, gray, beige ... are so NOT me. I prefer pinks and greens and blues. Ah, well.

Rachel said...

I am Elegant Classic-I found it fun and crazy that the description was 90% me!
