What's Your Design Style?

Do You Know Your Design Style

All of the different room transformations from the One Room Challenge got me thinking.  There are so many different styles and so many different people that love each style.  Most of us know whether or not we like something pretty quick.  There is a gut reaction, almost a reflex towards certain styles or items. Like I LOVE Mid Century Modern Style and furniture, and some people just think its "Old".  I would kill for a big cow/bull skull, and some people find that whole trend disgusting. You get the idea.  So, I thought I'd put together a few quizzes, in one space, so you can put a label on your style.  Maybe help you get in touch with what you LOVE a little more.

I found these quizzes on Lonny's website and took them...like 5 times:-) I thought I'd share the links so other people can have some fun.

Lonny My Style Finder Quiz ~ My first result was Regency Regal, which is pretty correct and then I got Mid-Century Classic 2 more times.  When you take it you will see why I took it a few times.  For some of the questions I didn't have just one option that I loved immediately, so I took it again and chose the other options to see what difference it would make.  Obvs, it made a huge difference.

Now, do you know what your Designer Spirit Animal is.  Is it Miles Redd? Nate Berkus?  Kelly Wearstler?  I got Miles Redd twice, Kelly Wearstler once, Nate Berkus once, and Ryan Korban once.  I, definitely, look for more inspiration from Kelly and Miles(Yes, we are on a first name basis), But that Nate is not without his charms...his designs are so clean and classic.  And the stuff he designs for Target??!!

You can also take one that will tell you which Ryan Gosling movie house you belong in.  I don't know about you, but I don't really care where he lives.  Yummo! And he loves his dog!  It seems impossible, but that makes him even more sexy to me.

Apartment Therapy has a simple one, too.  Are you Happy Modern? Eclectic Collector? Warm Industrial?  I am Eclectic Collector, but I love Happy Modern, too.  There are some GOOD rooms in that quiz to choose from... or Pin for inspiration.

Home Goods has this Stylescope Quiz. Pretty much as simple as it gets.  I'm Urban Funk with a touch of The Traveler, but I swear I took it before and my result was The Traveler and a touch of something else...probably Urban funk, huh?

I think I'm actually a mix of styles.  There are styles I LOVE, and my heart skips a beat whenever I see it, and then there are ones I appreciate.  I enjoy the look, but for someone else.  Jackie @ Teal & Lime does a good job explaining this.

Enough about me, Now go take the quizzes and report your findings.  Are you surprised?  Do you know of any other quizzes out there you'd like to add?

ORC Week 6~Finale!!

Do you think the word "finally" is so much like "finale" for a reason? I do

If you are new here, you can see how I got here: Week 1 / Week 2 / Week 3 / Week 4 / Week 5

If you're not new here then I'm sure you're dying to know if I was able to meld the glam, jewel box style of the nursery with the Boho Chic style of the bathroom successfully...

Here is where we started:

 Builder Basic Bathroom Before Celestial Shower Curtain

And here is where we are:

Bathroom After toilet Wall


I can't decide what to hang on this wall...and obvs I didn't finish the mirror frame, yet.  I'll definitely have decided on art for that wall by the time the mirror is done.


...but I didn't want to miss the link party, so I'll post an update when I finish everything else. Looks like I'm not the only one who didn't finish 100%, and I really hope I'm not the last one to link up!

The doors turned out better than I expected!  So pleased with them!

The amount of spray paint I used on this re-do should be illegal.  I should buy stock in Rustoleum and Krylon.

 I'll spare you a wordy post of explanations and sources and let you go check out the other linkers...I hope you checked out the talented 20 yesterday, but if you didn't you should go now. Now, I say!!

And just because everyone loves a good before and after:

I'll link an update post at the end of this post when I finish the mirror frame and the linen closet...in the interest of keeping it real, I was going to post an in progress pic of it, but I don't want to spoil all the gorgeousness that is happening with this link party.

Again...If you want to see it from the beginning you can catch up: Week 1 / Week 2 / Week 3 / Week 4 / Week 5

Thank you so much for stopping by and thank you Linda for hosting and all the encouragement!!
