My Design Style

I recently stumbled upon Studioten25‘s design blog and took a quiz on Sproost that determined what my style of designed was. It asked me to rate a couple of pictures and what did you know, it said my style was 50% Contemporary. No surprise there!  I already knew how crazy I was with clean lines and simplified forms.

So contemporary design is definitely the style I lean toward but I don’t like over simplified space that left one feeling empty and cold or just plain static. That’s why the other 25% is Cottage Chic and Modern Elegance. So my true style is actually all three. I like the clean, uncluttered look of contemporary style, but I also love to mix the old with the new. I love my space to appear solid but with subtle details that catch the eyes (I call that a pleasurable surprise! hehe).

I also love warm colors in a space esp. with dark wood and some bold textured textiles. Overall I really enjoyed this quiz. Below are pictures that represent the three styles above.
