I ♥ Quizzes. {Decor Ones, That Is!}

I know this little quiz has been going around the blog-o-sphere for awhile now, and if memory serves, I may have even taken it before. But, whatever the case, I just took it yesterday and was delighted with my results:

Vintage Modern

Flea Market anyone? You know you are drawn to modern furniture and interiors, and yet you really don't like a space that feels cold and sterile. And who could blame you? And that's why Vintage Modern is so appealing to you. Though the backdrop of the room, the walls and windows, are many times white or monochromatic, the furniture and accessories have the color, shape and texture to bring the warmth into the space. The great thing about Vintage Modern is ease of mixing different styles in the one space. You can have a new modular sofa mixed with a great pair of chairs that your grandmother purchased in the late 1950's and the new and old work appear as though they were destined for each other. What's great is that even if you don't have time for swap meets and garage sales, so many of the pieces from the mid-century were so great that they have been remade and mimicked year after year.

Colors

When it comes to color, walls are seen as backdrops for the room. Neutral tones of gray, white, beige and brown are very common and black is a common accent color. Pops of color on the art, furniture and accessories can vary dramatically based on the person, however very common colors are teal blues, army greens and yellow as well as deep oranges and bright reds.

Usually I take these types of quizzes and the results hardly ever resemble my true style. But I think these results hit the nail on the head. And the images, yeah, they make me giddy.



Head on over and take it if you haven't yet! : )

nice choices. I grew up with white walls most of my life and was ready to escape them. Now that I have moved into our first home and painted one room blue, another gray, and another green... it sometimes makes me miss those white walls ( then again I can never stick with one wall color too long anyway)
