What's Your Style?

Today, as I was browsing around, I found a decorating style quiz. I thought it might be fun to see what my "style" is.  It was eight questions with pictures as answers - nice and easy.  

It concluded that my style is Country French.  I think I can handle the country part, but not the French part.  I have nothing against the French, but the pictures that followed "my" style consisted of lots of frilly, flowery, lacy, ruffly, and girly styles.  

The only picture out of the 26 suggested ideas that was accurate was this one:

I definitely like the blue and white plates (I have almost the same blue and white plate lay-out on my dining room wall as well as some in my hutch) and the built-in bookshelf in the background.  I LOVE built-ins. I'm trying to convince Kerry to let me get one for our downstairs basement.  His Dad knows how to build a sweet built-in bookshelf, so it shouldn't be too costly.  

I'd say the only Country French room in my house is my dining room.  Everything else is a little more simple.

I retook the quiz and changed only one of my answers and it changed my style to something that I think reflects my home a little better:

The pictures that came with the Polished Style looked a little more like my home does now: simple, livable, practical, comfortable, durable, yet still has some classic elegance.  The Polished Casual is slightly more modern than my home, but is still a better reflection of how we live. 

Now it's your turn. Take the "What is Your Design Style?" quiz (even twice if you don't like the first results) and share your results.  Were they way off?  Exactly how you are?  Did you find any inspiration from them?

Now you can Do It Yourself Too!
