Effortlessly Eclectic

You like to break the rules when it comes to decorating. This avant-garde design style is perfect for those of us who can’t settle on a single decorating approach.

Totally Traditional

You feel most content when surrounded by familiar forms, colors and materials Guests are immediately drawn in by classic furniture pieces, fine woodwork, graceful curves and elegant fabrics. You have a connection with European, Old World or early American design. Your home exudes symmetry, calm and timeless elegance.

Very Vintage

You love the accessibility and affordability of vintage retro furniture and accessories. To you, the hunt for unique statement pieces at flea markets or garage sales is almost as much fun as the finished room. Whether it’s a sophisticated mid-century sofa, a weathered farm table or a brightly colored collection of 1940s Fiestaware you have a deep and abiding respect for all things with a story from the past.

Glamorously Global

You are an explorer in a world with few boundaries. Faraway places fill your dreams and exotic furnishings fill your home. You have picked up a few from your journeys. Nomadic pals gladly contribute to your collection of ethnic treasures. Whatever the source, your home reflects the vibrancy of a life well traveled.

Mostly Modern

You abhor clutter. Simplicity is your mantra. Clean lines and open spaces allow you to breathe and explore all that is progressive in design. Geometric shapes and angles speak to you and play a big part in your decorating. Your contemporary design aesthetic artfully merges form with function, giving your home both beauty and purpose.

Comfortably Casual

You would feel equally at home in a windswept beach cottage, French country farmhouse or a rustic mountain cabin. Relaxed, homey, warm and inviting define your lifestyle and decorating style. Overstuffed seating and natural surfaces give a laid-back vibe and are the perfect complement to your everyday life.

      RedElf, thanks. Nice to hear from you. Glad you liked the article. I totally agree with you--I HATE dusting. Maybe it's time for me to become complete minimalist. It will save time cleaning the house! :)

      Beautiful photos and nice clear descriptions. I lean more to traditional but with elements of jewel tones, exotic accents. Love comfortable and neutrals. Don't like dusting. Collected pieces in one (tall) display case/cabinet.
