Finding My Style - Part 2

Ok so I took the quiz again just for fun and I LOVE the new results I got.  HA HA HA!!!  So much for liking just one style.  :P

My second shot at interior design style came out with...

50% Vintage Modern
25% Zen Style
25% French Eclectic

Vintage Modern: "Flea Market anyone? You know you are drawn to modern furniture and interiors, and yet you really don't like a space that feels cold and sterile. And who could blame you? And 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 and the new and old work appear as though they were destined for each other. What's great is that even if you don't have time for swap meets and garage sales, so many of the pieces from the mid-century were so great that they have been remade and mimicked year after year."
Zen Style: "Goodbye clutter, hello clean! However in Zen Style, unlike some other contemporary design, the consistent level of natural materials keep the spaces from feeling cold and sterile. Zen Style has a nice mix of rustic with chic so that there is an incredible level of ease and sophistication about the space. Plants and greenery are very important in helping achieve the warm and natural feel of the space. When at all possible, natural lighting is used in spaces to help create the openness in the space."
French Eclectic: "Parlez-vous français? Even if the answer is no, you can confidently say your home does! French Country, like its name, somehow manages to both be formal and casual, classy and unassuming at the same time. You like your spaces to feel inviting from the moment you (or your guest) opens the front door and this feeling should continue even after you've entered your most formal room. Even though there are French antiques here and gold details there, the rustic elements provide a balance and warmth that seems to say, "come in, relax and stay a while." Your love of antiques leads you to flea markets, garage sales and hours of eBay hunting."

  1. I totally love it! It's so hard to choose which pictures I liked the best because there were elements from each photo I like. I have taken the quiz about five times and come out with pretty close to the same thing each time.

  2. Nice!!! I agree that there are so many different elements that made each picture great in some way. I can't wait until Joe and I move to a home we plan to be in for a while so we can decorate and invest in the home together. :)
