Determine Your Decorating Style

Ever wonder how to define your decorating style? I have! I have such an eclectic mix of French country, shabby chic, traditional, and modern, that I don't have any idea what to call it! So when I saw this quiz on How About Orange, I jumped at the chance to find out my style. This is what I got: 

"Park Avenue Cocktail"
A quite life… more simple, with your priorites in place. Your kitchen is your prize. Decorative, finished… elegant. In an exotic dream you sleep - sheer curtains, silk, and satin. Like the painter's brush, your composition is done in living color. A lady like table suitable to a royal wedding. Afternoon caffeine breaks to change your point of view. Pre-war, upper east side attitude. Bookcases, reading nooks and private studies provide a learned atmosphere at home.

Suspected Park Avenue Cocktail
- Marlene Dietrich
- Audrey Hepburn
- Frank Sinatra

I'm so flattered that I share the same tastes as Audry Hepburn and Frank Sinatra! How awesome is that?

I'm shocked at how accurate this assessment is, when all I did was pick a few pictures. Simplicity, check. Elegant, check. Silk/satin in the bedroom, check. Painter's brush, check. Feminine, check. Coffee, double check. And bookcases, reading nooks, private studies, check check and check.

Works for me!

There are over 20 different styles, so I know you'll want to take the Style Maker Visual Quiz to find out your style too! I'm curious, so after you do, come back and tell me what you got, Ok?!

P.S: The winning comment of the DaySpring Giveaway is....#1, Honormommy! Congratulations!!!

  1. So I took the quiz and I laughed at the title I received. "Unmade Bed" That sounds like me in a nut shell. Although I'm not so sure I enjoy having the same tastes as Woody Allen, Bob Dylan, and Tina fey. I'm in awe of the style that is very accurate to my personality.

  2. I got "Antiquated Espresso"! Lol! I share the same style as Humphrey Bogart, Tom Waits and Kathryn Hepburn. That was a fun quiz. :)

  3. I got California Country. That makes sense as my perfect house would be full of light, with a big kitchen, tranquil, lots of natural materials and handmade art, and somewhat secluded with lots of gardens and things. I think I'll have to wait a while for that to ever happen...

  4. That was fun--but I'm not sure it was accurate for me. According to the quiz, I'm "Asian Bauhaus" but I don't even know what that means! Oh, well . . .

    As for the style maker...that was tons of fun! Although, I am very jealous that you got Audrey Hepburn...

    Here's what I got:

    Winsome Charm

    The house at the end of the lane in the village by the sea. Home cooked meals from a kitchen full of country. Resort, retreat, getaway - all inside your bedroom. As with a technical dance, your style has it's own vocabulary. A sense of rolling hills and vineyards surround this table. Afternoon refreshments on the patio Pre-war, upper east side attitude. Casual and relaxed… never insisting on formality. .

  8. Yay! I got "Handcrafted Obsession"
    An intimate home of modest proportions. A kitchen that reflects your passion… large, sweeping - authentic. Build a roaring fire and jump into your cozy bed. Connecting to the handcrafting of the artist, you sense a skill and some chance. Modern subtleties extend to your table. Relax in a contemplative way. Hand knotted, vegetable dyed… a family history at your feet. Focused on good food and good company, you're the chef!.
