Melissa from The Inspired Room shared a fun design quiz link today. It is from HomeGoods.
Deanna, you are a COUNTRY CLASSIC
You have a naturally refined sensibility with an appreciation for tradition and history. You value beauty, craftsmanship, and family heirlooms, but you like to open things up with pretty, easy-going pieces like painted wood or distressed furniture, lovely florals and other patterns, and bunches of fresh flowers that give your home a breezy, relaxed feeling. You love unique finds, have a thrifty, creative side, and can make these things work together.
You value comfort. Your home is a warm and open friendly place, and you feel happiest when everyone is cared for and relaxed in your space. Elements like pillows, throws, overstuffed furniture, and good lighting set the mood. You may also enjoy layering different fabrics or mixing patterns to create a cozy effect.
I think this is pretty accurate for me. My style has changed from my youth when I loved the Victorian look. After I married I wanted our home to be comfortable for both my husband and I, and for us it meant no frou-frou!
I used to equate the country look with geese, country blue and mauve colors and gobs of baskets hanging off the ceiling! The country look I like has come from loving the look of English Country homes. The houses are pretty, comfortable and warm. They are lived in. They have "hand me down furniture" and new things side by side.
This is my kitchen as seen from the living room. The wall color is "Palace Chambers Yellow" a Williamsburg paint color, by Martin Senour.
The chairs in this room and one of the couches are hand me downs or finds by the road. The computer hutch is a hand me down as well. The beautiful china hutch I inherited from my great grandmother.
OOOOOOO that was fun.ReplyDelete
It was righ on the money.
I am country eclectic.
Thanks for sharing that.
Love & Prayers,
I like your decorating style! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the picket fence towel rack in the guest bathroom! I might steal that idea someday when we have a bigger bathroom :)ReplyDelete
I like the bold use of colors in the bathrooms and of course love the yellow!ReplyDelete
Yep, me too...I'm always trying to think of ways to make our home work for the way we live!
I love all your pretty teacups below!
Great pictures of your home. Everything looks very put away. Mine is more "lived in" and in transition....:O)ReplyDelete
Mine is usually more "lived" in as well!ReplyDelete
Wow that was a whole lot of fun! My style was Elegant Classic, and I cannot get over just how much it described me! Thanks so much for sharing, lots of fun! Enjoy a beautiful weekend.ReplyDelete
I love the colors you use for the walls.ReplyDelete
I just took the quiz and i'm country casual. =)
Thanks for you kind comments about our home!ReplyDelete
Beverly - I have to say that that is how I would describe you. It suits you!
Manuela - Your blog inspires my creativity all the time!
Melissa - The picket fencing works great, especially with the kids. They can hang their towels up on their own at a very young age! I used the whole premade fencing section because I had the room, but originally was only going to use a section of 5 or 6 pickets...it could work in a small space!
Melissa G - Love you sweetie! I think your style suits you too!
Beautiful pictures and lovely web-site too. The background music is very soothing. What song is this?
I loved the picket fence in the bathroom. That is a great and novel idea.
I am global casual.ReplyDelete
I love your style and would feel right at home as it is soooo welcoming..I have been switching slowly over to a more cottagey look....and mixing this and that...will go and take the quiz real fast...ReplyDelete
