Fun Quiz

Two of my favorite's in one place: Deborah Needleman and Home Goods!
The former editor-in-chief of Domino has created a style quiz on the Home Goods website. It only take a few minutes, it's fun, and I actually thought my results make sense. Here they are:

Bohemian Classic

You have a refined sensibility and bring a sense of history and tradition into your decor. You appreciate how symmetrical arrangements and beautiful, well-crafted pieces create a solid foundation to a room. But you like to shake up this restraint with objects and accessories that express your personality and your love of other cultures. When traveling, you seek out unique objects that reflect what you love, and you use them in a sophisticated way. You want people to feel comfortable in your home, and cozy chairs, ethnic fabrics, unique pieces, and even a little touch of quirk or humor give your house a laid-back, Bohemian flair.

You value creativity. You are stylish and fun loving, and can be an inspiration to others. You have a natural sense of drama, and you know you have to be willing to take risks—whether with colors, finishes, furniture choices, or ideas—for your home to stand out. Your home can be happy and lively and the place all of your friends want to be.

So. What's your style?


  1. So I am totally anti-the word "earthy" but this is pretty dead on. The thing is, this isn't how I live, it's how I aspire to live - at least in terms of actually being organized and uncluttered.

    The funniest part was the color palette that came with the style description - it had a square of orange that looked like it came directly from my couch. :D

    Here's what it said:

    Renee, you are an Earthy Modern

    You keep up with culture, style, and trends, but have an appreciation for timeless forms and simple lines. You value good design, quality craftsmanship, and prefer the streamlined to the overly embellished or cluttered. You also appreciate the warmth and individuality of natural materials and handcrafted things and are inspired by colors and forms from nature. This contrast is what makes your home intriguing and comfortable. You love mixing up different textures and are sensitive to the tactile qualities of objects. Your style is grounded and solid, not flighty or frilly.

    You value order. You feel happiest if your home is well organized. You understand that when your house is in order, your mind feels clearer. Rather than a lot of meaningless objects or overly-designed items, you are happier with a few well-placed things. Your home is your respite from a busy life. Try to avoid letting things into your home that you don't really love.

  2. I'm with Renee. But earthy? I know I live in SF, but earthy?

  3. That's so funny- Dave took the quiz, and he's Earthy Modern, too. And I would definitely put Sara and Dave at least somewhere in the same realm in terms of taste. And like me, orange is his favorite color, so I love that an orange swatch cam eup for this classification, Renee.


Let me know what you think. I love hearing from you!
