A Style Quiz for ya

Happy Monday!
I found this quiz via the
How About Orange blog, from the Sproost website. It is a quiz to help you find your interior design style. You can take it here. You can choose Love it, Like it, Just Ok, Don't Like It, or Hate It (which in our house, the H-word is a word we don't use!). I love design and it came as no surprise that I am:

{Vintage Modern}

38% Vintage Modern: You know I love me some thrift stores & garage sales! Here is the description: "Flea Market, anyone? You know you are drawn to modern furniture and interiors, and yet you don't like a space that feels cold and sterile.And who could blame you? That's why Vintage Modern is so appealing to you. Though the backdrop of the room, the walls and windows, are many times white or monochromatic, the furniture and accessories have the color, shape and texture to bring the warmth into the space.
The great thing about Vintage Modern is ease of mixing different styles in the one space. You can have a new modular sofa mixed with a great pair of chairs that your grandmother purchased in the late 1950's. The new and old work appear as though they were destined for each other. Even if you don't have time for swap meets and garage sales, so many of the mid-century pieces were so great that they have been remade and mimicked year after year."

{Cottage Chic}

38% Cottage Chic: This one surprised me until I read the description: "Who says that cottages can't be modern and chic? Who says that they have to be floral and cheesy? Not you!
You love the carefree spirit that the cottage interior inspires, but you are also serious about your appreciation for modern art and hip treasures. You love old and new alike, and love to highlight them all to expose the uniqueness of each. What better way to show off these treasures than with a light background?"


24% Contemporary: Good thing my soon-to-be-husband works for a Scandinavian furniture company! However, I find it humorous and so remarkably me that I would score high on Vintage Modern, with things that I find at thrift stores and yet this is the description for contemporary: "So fresh and clean! Antiques? No thanks! Vintage collections and clutter of any type? Not for you! You like your space new and sleek. Each piece is chosen carefully as though it were a piece of art, and your love of minimalism is expressed throughout each room. Furniture has clean lines and geometric shapes are preferred.
You're not afraid of color — in fact, bold color options only highlight the minimal items you choose for your home. But the key is clean. To master the minimalist interior you not only have to be selective in the few furniture items you bring into the space, you must also find a way to hide all of the real-life items as well."

Not to mention the "you like your space new & sleek..." Sort of like my desk right?!?

Well, it just goes to show you that when you have a creative right brain, often times you don't play by any one set of rules...now, if I could just have a job that would encourage this. Some day *sigh* right?
