HomeGoods has a quiz to determine your design style. I went to their website after discovering this offering from another blogger (sorry, can't remember who and where).
I think I'm complicated. After all, I can't even determine my own style. How can a website do any better? I know what I like when I see it and I can't always put it into words. I was intrigued by this and decided it might be fun. I took the short quiz and my design style is Elegant Classic. At first I thought, no, can't be. But when I read the following description, I believe it to be correct. This is the result...
You have a refined sensibility with an appreciation for history and tradition in your furniture and your rooms. You value beauty, things that are well crafted, and family heirlooms. You are visually sensitive and understand how symmetry and a formal layout give order to a room, and hence your home is refined and calming. You are not taken in by the trends of the moment. You go for things with a timeless appeal, and appreciate old-fashioned virtues like manners and handwritten notes and making a home that is welcoming for others.
You value serenity. While there are probably a lot of interesting things in your home, they are joined by your taste or a certain palette that keeps them in harmony. You appreciate the beauty in simple forms. Whether fancy or plain, you appreciate things that are well made and function as well as they look. You also have a strong respect for the environment and craftsmanship. You care about how things are made, and how they are used.
So I'm an Elegant Classic in a goofy, comfy, down-to-earth sort of way! :)
