Your style is: traditional
Your personal style leans toward the traditional. Traditional design is oriented around comfort, and the traditional home is welcoming and familiar. Think curved sectionals and chaises, and plan your rooms with symmetry and balance front of mind. When choosing colors, aim for restrained color schemes with lots of neutrals and a limited palette; clashing colors and high contrast designs are not for you. Any metallics should be warm, like bronze, gold, and copper. Personalize your space with flamboyant displays of art and collectables for a home that is refined, yet original and exciting.
Your style is: modern
Your personal style leans toward the modern. Modern design is characterized by geometric forms and deliberate, invigorating asymmetry. Superfluous accessories are not for you — opt for simple arrangements and large, striking accents. When choosing furniture, think strong, smooth lines, and don’t be afraid to make bold color choices! Any metallics should be cool, like stainless steel and chrome. Your fearless approach to style is what will set your home apart.
