My Design Style: Part 1

I was browsing design sites today looking for inspiration for my oh-so-blah home office (discussion for another post) and came across a quiz: What is your Design Style.  Now, I love "personality" quizzes....like LOVE them. I often find that my results truly represent me. So as I answered each question click by effortless click, I was confident that these results would paint a true picture.

Question 1: Which flower arrangement would look best on your coffee table?
A) Rose
B) Hydrangea
C) Tulip 
I absolutely love roses - long, beautiful and classic. But were roses too safe, too common, too predictable? Possibly. I also love hydrangeas - simple, yet complex at the same time. The purple-blue ones always bring me inspiration...usually inspiration to redecorate my entire home in the same hue. Hydrangea it was!

Questions 2: Which shoes best represents your go-to look?
A) Flat  
B) Cowboy boot  
C) Wedge 
What? No flip flops? Really? Who designed this quiz? I absolutely LOVE flip flops...probably as much as I love personality quizzes. Flip flops are the ultimate in summer comfort and versatility...and they are a pedestal for a purrfectly chic pedicure. I chose the flat...it's like a flip flop but with added coverage. I could so picture myself strolling the Champs-Elys√©es in these Tory Burch Metallic Reva Ballet Flats. I'm a (mere) size 10. Hint. Hint.

Question 3: Which set of colors make you feel most comfortable?
A
B
C
Yuck. I hated these patterns and none of them made me feel comfortable, calm or cozy for that matter. These colors actually sacred me. I concluded that the person who assembled these combinations was clearly having a bad day. Nonetheless, I chose option C for its softness.

Question 4: Which of these chairs would you like to sink into at the end of the day? 
A) Toile Upholstery
B) Slipcoverd chair 
C) Red and Paisley 
Are these chairs for real? Am I 80-years-old? None of them look remotely comfortable, slightly inviting or at all pleasing to the eye. A glass of wine with a side of red and paisley after a long day?!? I think not. I cut the slipcovered chair some slack and chose it for its countryside feel...even though I would have preferred to pamper my tired toes in this microfiber velvet lounge chair (pictured below) from Crate & Barrel.

Visit me tomorrow when I post the four remaining questions and reveal my "true" design style. In the meantime, I will not be lounging in any slipcovered furniture.
