The Fabric Maverick says .... Take a quiz!

April 10, 2008

Victoria has refused to write today. She says she needs sewing time. If you have not noticed, there is a sale in my honor today.  Finally, a little respect.  I have found a quiz that will help you determine your decorating style. Join in the fun! 

Take A Decorating Style Quiz

Determining your home decorating style may not be as hard as you think. The trick is actually looking beyond your home decor and into your lifestyle. What you find may surprise you, whether your style leans toward country decorating, contemporary or another style of decorating altogether.

Your clothes, car and - yes, even what you eat - can all be traced back to one thing: your sense of style. We've compiled a few simple (and rather fun) questions to help you zero in on your decorative style. Just choose the answers that relate to you most and then see below to find out which decorating style fits you best. While the answers are just for fun, you may discover a little more about yourself!

Q: Which of the following would you label your dream car?
  1. A sleek sports car equipped with all the latest, flashy features - and it's got to be trendy!
  2. A pickup truck that's as stylish as it is functional.
  3. A mid-sized SUV that's cleverly styled to suit both car lovers and sports enthusiasts.
  4. A classic car that represents history and offers a sense of formality.
  5. A vehicle that helps you enjoy a weekend drive with the wind in your hair.
Q: Which of these meals are you most likely to prepare?
  1. A tofu stir-fry with a Cajun kick - you like to entertain with exciting dishes.
  2. Homemade pot roast and potatoes that give you a warm feeling.
  3. A sampler platter - you enjoy taste testing a variety of foods.
  4. Turkey with all the dressings - the perfect chance to use the formal dining room.
  5. Finger sandwiches with no fuss, no muss.
Q: On a typical workday, which of these outfits would you most likely be seen wearing?
  1. Black dress pants or slacks with a bold striped button shirt.
  2. A pair of jeans to match a favorite comfy sweater.
  3. A stylish outfit with a mix of patterns and colors to represent your individualistic style.
  4. A formal dress or pant suit because you always dress for success.
  5. A comfortable pair of khakis, a denim jacket and your signature leather sandals.
Q: If you could choose your favorite lighting fixture, what would it look like?
  1. A clean and crisp wall sconce.
  2. You prefer the light from your fireplace for that cozy ambiance.
  3. A Tiffany-style art glass table lamp that showcases brilliant colors and a unique style.
  4. A grandiose chandelier that welcomes guests into the foyer.
  5. A natural style ceiling fixture that features material such as bamboo.
Q: Your dream house is:
  1. A stunning home with large windows and clean lines that overlooks water.
  2. A remodeled farm house with plenty of space for friends and family.
  3. A stylish condo in a hip metropolitan neighborhood.
  4. Only a spacious modern-day castle will do.
  5. A rustic log cabin surrounded by nature.

Now the results!

If you chose:

 Mostly 1's: You are a contemporary decorator. You favor sleek, streamlined designs and form that follows function. Your living room tends to have leather furniture and your home decor often features metal and glass with minimalist details.

 Mostly 2's: You are a country decorator. Floral prints and comfy sofas with ruffled skirts may adorn your home. You enjoy heart-warming coziness that you get from your fireplace. Unpretentious is your motto.

 Mostly 3's: You are an eclectic decorator. You're not afraid to mix up your home decor by crossing different periods and styles. Furniture with textured fabrics linked only by color may be sprinkled throughout your home. You like home decor that represents your individualistic side.

 Mostly 4's: You are known as the traditional decorator. The moment guests step into your home they are imbued with a sense of history. Formal, symmetrical and graceful sums up your home decor.

 Mostly 5's: You are a casual decorator. You live only by three words: relaxed, informal and comfortable. Neutral, earthy tones placate every room. You enjoy home decor that pays tribute to nature and textured fabrics.

I took the quiz!  How did yours turn out?
