Sproost Style Quiz

Sproost.com has a find-your-style quiz available. And if I do say so myself, it looks to be quite accurate!



Those sproost folks gave me my results and as you can see, I am 41% Nantucketian and 41% Cottage Chic...with an 18% dash of Hollywood couture thrown in for kicks :)

Let me see here what I agree with...



Love the beach? check.
Coastal art & accessories? check
Natural fabrics, cottons & linens? check
Light wood & wicker? not so much
White, light beige, blues, greens, and greys? check check check check and check
Comfy furniture? check

So yeah - I can definitely say that I love being a Nantucket girl. Although I am not particularly drawn to light colored wood, I definitely am attracted to all the other aspects of beach life. Good Job Sproost!

Moving on to Cottage Chic...

Carefree spirit? check
Appreciate modern art & hip treasures? check
Love old and new? check
Light background? partially check

While I love to swim in a modern and chic world free from florals and cheesiness (except my jokes, of course) I can appreciate a warm chocolate room or some black painted floors (like the photo above). I only wish that this description gave me more clue on what the particulars of cottage chic were.

Finally my smattering of hollywood couture...



Sparkly crystal? love looking at it - not lucky enough to own it
All things flashy? Not so much.
Sense of opulence? I wish.
Rich feeling? yes please.
Over the top with livability? how is that possible?
Luxury? I am begging.

So overall, I definitely agree to the mix of these three styles as something that would be an accurate representation of me. Sure, it isn't always possible to make your home a complete reflection of you...especially these days with different trends flying in and out the door with ludicrious speed or when you try to make sure any home improvements are appealing to the masses. But it is definitely helpful for the next time I go shopping. It'll help me reign in the brain and focus by chanting "nantucket, cottage, hollywood".

So ya'll...what's your sproost style? Do you agree with the sproost assessment? Or is it whack like crack?

I'm 50% Modern Elegance, 40% Classic, and 10% French Electic. Although, none of these styles represent my current household, they definitely illustrate how I would love to decorate my home.

I cannot get the script to work on my computer... sigh... I guess I'll never know.

Fun!

I'm 40% French Eclectic, 33% Hollywood Couture, 27% Contemp.
"Even though there are French antiques here and gold details there, the rustic country elements provide a balance and warmth that seems to say, "come in, relax and stay a while." "

I'd like to think I'm this refined and will claim to be so from now on(umm, my French antiques are in storage--and by storage, I mean I don't own any.)

I was 31% Modern Elegance, 31% Vintage Modern and 38% Hollywood Couture -- I'm not sure I'm more Hollywood than I am, say, vintage (I'm not THAT into mirrors and crystal)...but the mix of those three seems about right.

I took one of these quizes on HGTV one time and it said my style was "Bachelor Pad." And that was AFTER I check the box stating I was a female. Hmmm...
