style quiz

I have a confession...
I can not decide how I want our great room to feel in our new house. 
 I'm fairly certain on the room's layout, but have no clear vision for how I want to design the room.  There are just too many options in my head!  I think I'm suffering from new house bi-polar.  Do I want it dark? Light?  Should it feel swanky or comfortable?  Leather or upholstery?
It is far easier decorating a client's house than my own!!

One decision I have made is that I know I want to buy American made furniture. 
 Room and Board has some wonderful options.  
Isn't this a beauty?
Made in North Carolina.

I also like this, but I'm not crazy about the legs.  The color and the length is amazing.
Made in Virginia.


I've also been looking at Ethan Allen.
That's when I came across their fun style quiz.
Basically, they place two images next to each other and you are asked to quickly click on which one speaks to you first.  Which image is more your style.
Of course I took it twice and got different results each time but I think that's because I love to combine looks!
My results?
A combination between "Villa" and "Glamour".  I think they gave a pretty good description of my style!

The verdict is in.  Your style is Villa.  Villa is romance reinvented.  A high-end "decorator" look.  Refined without fuss.  Serene yet strong.  Pedigreed while also modern.  Inspired by French and Scandinavian design.  A mingling of carved woods, handcrafted artisanship, and the dressmaker detail.




The verdict is in.  Your style is Glamour.  Glamour is the penthouse with a view, the old Hollywood mansion, the home of the connoisseur.  A knowing marriage of fashion and with sumptuous comfort.  A fearless blending of Art Deco, Chippendale, and Modern.  Glamour is shamelessly smart, elegant, and timeless.

Please, leave a comment and let me know your results.  
Do you think they were right?

  1. My style is apparently: Glamour

    Kind of true. Although I'm sure if I took it another time, there might be a different outcome too!

  2. Surprise surprise..I am villa. That was neat...thanks! I love both actually but feel there is a time and room for everything, what i might put in a pied a terre is far different than what I would use for a country or beach house..have an immense apprecation for all styles...but you want to be sure you are fully commited to whatever you do because change is expensive! Love the sleek elegant lines of the first sofa, btw.

  3. That was fun! I am a loft with a runner up of estate.

    The verdict is in—your style is Loft. Loft is energetic. Fashion-driven. Practical. Materials borrowed from industry, architecture, and nature. Clean shapes. Punches of color. Spontaneous and fresh. Kids and pets? Bring them on.

  4. I did it 4 times with 3 different results ^^ Twice estate, once villa, once loft. But loft is the only style that I also actually like! Needless to say, the test is not very good ;-) (Making tests is part of my job, btw.) But it's fun and a good way to explore one's own style :-)

  5. Ok, so I might have taken it a few times. (I just wanted to see if I could get the same answer twice haha) I got Country House, Loft & Villa. I think that's probably about right :)

  6. So funny....I always say that it is easier to design for clients than yourself :) I am sure if I take it, I will be all over the place....

  7. I have been wondering what my "style" was, and I got the exact same result as you did! Which is funny, cause my apartment is definitely more modern/Asian than anything else.

  8. I am in the middle of a friends redo on her house and I come up with her stuff more easily than my own.....too funny! Hey, took the quiz, I'm loft, really? I would have never seen myself as a loft person!!! This was such a fun quiz to take! Thanks!

  14. Only did it once -- but I came up with Country House with a side of Global, which for some reason I find quite funny ;)

  15. I dunno...Mine came out Metro with 1st runner up as Estate...maybe I'm too schizophrenic to actually be able to do one of those quiz things! (c: Hmmm...on second thought, maybe that really *is* my secret style preference! Looking at my living room, EA might be more right than I am!

  16. Villa and Metro - those seem like complete opposites!

  17. My style was Villa...love the look so I may have to agree...I'd throw a little glam in with it though!!

  18. That was really fun! My style is Glamour, but I might also like Villa! Definitely right on for me.

  19. I enjoyed that quiz. My style is loft. Loft is energetic. Fashion-driven. Practical. Materials borrowed from industry, architecture, and nature. Clean shapes. Punches of color. Spontaneous and fresh. Kids and pets? Bring them on. I took it twice and both times it said loft, I think this describes my style.

  20. um.. I got a different answer every time! I think they need a color-obsessed category ;) I think you need to embrace your need for blue, and paint is easier to change out than upholstery - now, can you come over and help me design my dining room?!!

  21. too funny! i relate call it.. ican'tdecidewhichstyleiwant disease!

  22. What an interesting post! I am metro... "Metro is a great modern space. Chic, comfortable, clean. Do the math. Strong horizontals plus graphic clarity plus a fearless blending of metal, woods, leathers, and wovens; minus the superfluous and the clichéd; equals urban architecture domesticated, a vision for living." I don't think that's quite accurate though!

  23. Interesting, I took the quiz 4 times just for fun, and got Villa 2x and Loft 2x, and I would say that is definitely true! So fun!

  24. My verdict: Estate...Loft. That was a nice break from my day, now I'm off to read and browse more about the styles. Cool post!

    Estate-An eternal American summer. Sporty. Charming. In the main house or the guest cottage, effortless elegance.
