More Evidence That I Must Be Bi-Polar

I love taking tests....especially when they're easy.
Head over to Sproost, look at the photos and click what you think.
(am I a bad person because I marked "hate it" so many times? I didn't know I was such a hater.)

My results:

Your personal style is a mix of 2 specific styles: 60% Rustic Revival 40% Southwestern Style

Rustic Revival
You can take kid out of the country but you can't take the country out of the kid... or is your theme "you can take the kid out of the city, but you can't take the city out of the kid?".
Either way you play it, you are one of the unique individuals who loves a mix of modern and country. The clean lines of the modern softened by rustic/vintage elements is the perfect mix in your mind. And can we blame you? You've taken the best aspects of two popular designs and mixed them in a manner that appeals to young and old alike. A subtle background of white or light colors provides a nice canvas for all the wonderful flea market, eBay, or garage sale finds as well as the classic modern pieces that you love.

Leave a comment and let me know how you did.


  1. My Schizophrenic decorating style:

    50% Nantucket Style
    29% Mountain Lodge Style
    21% Modern Elegance

    And yet my house is more "Deseret Industries Chic"- Go Figure.

    Nantucket Style
    Oh how you love the beach! Who doesn't, right? And so your dream home is either perched in your favorite beach town, or you've brought that favorite beach town into your house.

    Your art and accessories speak directly to the activities that are found at the beach. Pieces of driftwood you found here, pictures or paintings of the amazing views there. Things that remind you of the coast - surf boards or fishing boats - are found throughout the house. The feeling of the seaside is both abstract and literal in the design of your space. The fabrics are natural, cottons and linens and are light in color and touch. Much of the furniture is wood or wood framed (the lighter the better, think driftwood!) and wicker, when done right, is a must.

    And since your true inspiration is the sea, the colors and textures in your home are the same that you would find at your favorite beach: white, light beiges and grays of the sand and driftwood, a variety of blues for the ocean and sky, and greens and vibrant blues of the sea glass� but the key is white! Your space should feel light and airy and give off the mood one has when at the beach: laid back!

    Your furniture is comfortable and the layout is cozy. The more it reminds you of actually sitting on the warm sand, the better! And what do you do at the beach? Hang out with family and friends - and your home is just an extension of this play place. And though the space is filled with large white furniture, it somehow manages to feel both durable and casual

  2. 43% Rustic Revival
    29% Modern Elegance
    28% Contemporary

    Maybe that 43% explains why I like your house so much, and why I hate my ugly wood walls!

  3. 50% Classic
    50% Modern Elegance....

    I had a lot of hate it's too! I absolutely love the look of your taste so this is not so true...where is my rustic results?

  4. 50% Classic
    33% Traditional Country
    17% Hollywood Couture

    I don't know about that "Hollywood Couture" business, but the others are pretty right on I think. That was fun! Thanks for sharing.

  6. 70% Mountain Lodge
    20% Rustic Revival
    10% Arts & Crafts

    That reminds me of a weekend we spent in Midway, Ut.....

  7. 42% Classic

    And yet right now my house is 100% kid proof and bare. Sigh. I will save this for my decorator when my little dears get the hell out of my house. In 20 years. Sigh again.

  8. I was 46% wine country and then southwest then rustic. What the heck, there were some weird rooms on that quiz!

  9. 67% Wine Country Style
    17% Nantucket Style
    16% Classic
    That was fun! Thanks

  10. hey I left a comment, and it didnt save it.. wierd.. I was 88% Modern Elegance and 12% Southwest.

  11. I was 41% traditional country, 30% classis and 29% nantucket style. That was fun....thanks!

  12. 50% French Eclectic
    30% Vintage Modern
    20% Cottage Chic

    I felt like I was not nearly opinionated enough--I kept hitting like it and just OK. I tried to muster up more of an opinion but I just couldn't.

    I probably wouldn't say my house is French Eclectic, but I do agree with this part: "Your love of antiques leads you to flea markets, garage sales and hours of eBay hunting." Thrill of the hunt, baby.
