Your Signature Style

What’s Your Decorating Personality? If you're like most, you know what you do and do not like, but you're not really sure what style that translates into. So take this fun Visual Quiz from REAL SIMPLE to understand your style. Once you've identified your Signature Style, read about it below. 

SOPHISTICATED CLASSIC"You’re drawn to timeless pieces and luxe materials. You love rooms that offer an elegant blend of refined traditional furniture, jewelry-like accessories, and pale hues, pairing patrician old-world elements with cleaner Art Deco shapes. The look evokes a more formal lifestyle. Think Grace Kelly, Tiffany & Co., and Charlotte from Sex and the City."

MODERN GRAPHIC"You’re into color, contrast, and clean lines—a fresh, fun, contemporary look that combines urban styling (like a downtown loft) with edgy, colorful elements and midcentury design. You prefer simple furniture forms that balance out bold accents and patterns. Think the Museum of Modern Art, Frank Lloyd Wright, a Rubik’s Cube."

COZY CASUAL"You’re about comfort and warmth, favoring warm, traditional rooms made for relaxing with family and friends. Your ideal decor draws on English and early-American furniture designs, as well as laid-back country, cottage, and farmhouse styles. Weathered, low-maintenance furnishings are easy, inviting, and built for daily life. Think golden retrievers, fuzzy slippers, and just about any movie by Nancy Meyers."
 
VINTAGE ECLECTIC"You go for history, quirks, and curves. A rich, layered look combining flea-market finds, furniture designs from various time periods, and a diverse collection of accessories and artwork appeals to you. Dusty colors, timeworn or handmade textiles, and collected objects create a lived-in feel. Think Paris flea markets, Granny’s teacups, the film Grey Gardens."
