What's Your Personal Decor Style???

You know me and how I like taking these on-line..."what's your color personality"? test or "what's your design style" quiz. Well here is another one, this time answering these questions will help you find your own personal "decor" style!

Mine apparently is...

(psssst...I took the test twice...same result!)



Traditional Country

Even if your backyard isn't acres of farmland and you don't actually have a chicken coop, your house sure brings you back to a time when that was the case. You love spaces that feel casual and lived in. Furniture is practical and comfortable, and yet at the same time its very stylish. The best part of country style is how much it highlights collection and found objects. Antiques here, garage sale finds there and Aunt Milly's hand-me-downs throughout. Unique items that used to serve very practical purposes are now on display, and their history seems to permeate the home. Each space in the home seems to invite friends and family to come in and stay a while. There is a true sense of home felt throughout.





Materials

When it comes to materials in Traditional Country homes, think rustic, warm and comfortable. Wood or natural tile floors, natural or painted wood tables and chairs, and natural materials on the soft furnishings. Stripes, plaids and florals are popular and often all are mixed in one room. Soft vintage leather and suede are common and wrought and rusty iron also reinforce the rustic nature of the rooms. Large wood pieces of furniture are very common, and help manage storage throughout the home. Wallpaper is very popular and most often highlights floral patterns. For traditional country, the concept of minimalism is avoided at all cost. It's the collections that give the space character and reinforce the lived-in nature of the spaces.

Colors

For color, spaces can go either bright and airy or soft and muted. Think of the countryside in spring and summer with yellows, bright greens and blues. Or you can go for more of a fall country day, and go a bit darker but still stay in the earth tones. Dark browns, reds and greens. Either direction you go in, be it light or dark, the key is warmth. Traditional country rooms rarely, if ever, feel cold.

  3. I took it twice, too, Barbara. I was surprised that there were different choices both times with a few of the same ones thrown in. I was French Eclectic with Classic a 2nd choice and Nantucket behind that. Interesting. I think a few years ago I would have bene Courntry Farmhouse style. Living on the water changed my taste somewhat. xo Diana

  5. Yeah, how funny I took it twice too, but I agree on the classic and elegant part, but I'm more English, I am not French country, lol! I guess I didn't really see what I truly like in any of the images. A lot of fun, though. Thanks for sharing.
