What’s my home decor style?

Are you clueless when it comes to your home decor style preferences? Nailing down your style is the first (and most important!) step when making your home look gorgeous and cozy on a budget. Looking at pictures and trying to figure out what you like most about them can be overwhelming, so I’ve created a home decor style quiz to make the process easier! It’s quick and easy, and by the end of the quiz you will know which unique style is a perfect fit for you and your home. 

Which one sounds more like you?

Do you think you’re a modern decorator who loves clean lines? Do you have Traditional style? Minimalist style? Or do you lean more toward a French Country look? Or maybe you truly love a combination of several styles! My quick & easy interior design style quiz will help point you in the right direction to create a cozy and beautiful home that is uniquely YOU!

By taking this quiz, you’ll find out…

… exactly what home decor style you LOVE the most! Included in this quiz are popular home decor styles like Traditional, Transitional, Modern Farmhouse, Modern Rustic, and more. Not only will you nail down your favourite style, but you’ll finish the quiz with specific useful tips and tricks from me that will get you EXCITED and READY to start your ultimate room makeover! 

Knowing your preferred style will help you narrow down a floor plan, area rugs, fixtures, and fabrics (after all, silk and velvet are both lovely but won’t go with every style!) with far fewer headaches. Make sure you answer the questions honestly to get the most accurate results. There are no right or wrong responses! You can’t change your design style DNA, so you might as well figure it out once and for all and lean into it! After all, there’s a wide variety of design styles that are all beautiful and welcoming, and once you have an idea of your own preferences you can more easily decorate your own home so you will love it.

My style is Transitional, as my living room here shows!
