Home Style

My dear friend Morgan posted a link to this fun quiz on her blog, and waking from my nap and of course finding nothing better to do than poke around online, I had to do it too. What's your personal style for your home? Pick your favorite pictures and find out!

The descriptions for both Morgan's results (Bucolic Artisan) and mine (see below) seem true insofar as we have actually followed our ideals in creating our homes.

Results: You most resemble a "Old Money Extravagance".


Graceful living in a well appointed home. Country chic - a kitchen you live in. Hibiscus and an Ocean Breeze while you sleep. Tempo and technical accumen give a smooth flow to you. Enjoying elegant outdoor fare. Watch the grass grow in the hot summer sun. Pre-war, upper east side attitude. Casual and relaxed… never insisting on formality. .

Suspected "Old Money Extravagance"

- Winston Churchill
- Anthony Hopkins

  1. Cute quiz. I am "Antiquated Espresso...

    Cozy… not oversized - a hand crafted gem. A cottage kitchen - but nicer than that. A bedroom with distinct character - warm and charming. Like a master painting, your projects unfold over long periods. Thematic table accessories set the mood. Charge the mood with some enhancing refreshments. Pre-war, upper east side attitude. Sytle cues of fun and discovery abound.."

    So, yes, it's true that our home is a summer cabin fixer-upper that is somewhat better after 10 years but needs another 10 ;)

  2. Sarah, I'm the same as you! :)
