Glamorous Eclectic

Saw a post about a home style survey on a friend's blog, and thought, "Why not?"

So, according to Home Goods, I'm Glamorous Eclectic - and here's what that means:

You are a Glamorous Eclectic

You have wide-ranging interests and influences and so appreciate a mix of whatever you deem fantastic. You would be bored to tears using a matching suite of furniture or could never stand a home that seemed cookie-cutter. You fearlessly embrace luxury, beauty and fun. Velvet, silver, graphic patterns, even wallpaper; you understand the old-Hollywood, movie star sense of theatrical extravagance. You do not understand the minimalist idea of less is more. For you, more is more, so long as it is chic and exciting.

You value comfort. Your home is a warm and open friendly place, and you feel happiest when everyone is cared for and relaxed in your space. Elements like pillows, throws, overstuffed furniture, and good lighting set the mood. You may also enjoy layering different fabrics or mixing patterns to create a cozy effect.

Weirdly, it's mostly sort of true. My taste is all over the place, fortunately, theoretically, I have professional training and experience to help me hone it and keep it in check. What's your home style?

Aw, this does sound like you! The first paragraph does, and the second paragraph made me think "YES! Tarah!" for sure.

I'm a sucker for a quiz, so I took it hehe, thanks for the link. :p I got this, which I think is pretty appropriate for me:

Global Modern

You keep up with culture, style, and trends but have a classical appreciation for beautiful forms, good design, and quality craftsmanship. You prefer the streamlined and a bit of breathing room to the overly embellished or cluttered. But your style is far from cold, because your aesthetic interests are wide-ranging and far-flung. You appreciate other cultures and like mixing the old or the unusual with the new and modern. Objects in your home tend to reflect your personality, your passions, your travels, and your eclectic interests–uniting to form a well-edited collection.

You value serenity. While there are probably a lot of interesting things in your home, they are joined by your taste or a certain palette that keeps them in harmony. You appreciate the beauty in simple forms. Whether fancy or plain, you appreciate things that are well made and function as well as they look. You also have a strong respect for the environment and craftsmanship. You care about how things are made, and how they are used.
