Find Your Style

HomeGoods launched a new quiz on their site (created by Deborah Needleman, founding editor-in-chief of Domino magazine) that allows you to figure out your home style.
"This quiz will help you define the style that is already yours, allowing you to better navigate the vast world of d├ęcor options and giving you the confidence to experiment and create a happier home."
Take the HomeGoods StyleScope here. You can also enter for a chance to win a daily gift card giveaway and a weekly giveaway of a $5,000 shopping spree at HomeGoods. What I could buy with $5000 at HomeGoods!

My results:
heather, you are an Earthy Casual. You're interested in creating a welcoming home where people feel comfortable and happiness flourishes. You appreciate the warmth and individuality of natural materials and handcrafted things and are inspired by colors and forms from nature. You love mixing up different textures and are sensitive to the tactile qualities of objects. Your style is grounded and solid, not flighty or frilly. And you are never taken in by the trend of the moment.

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.


  1. Erika, you are an Elegant Classic

    You have a refined sensibility with an appreciation for history and tradition in your furniture and your rooms. You value beauty, things that are well crafted, and family heirlooms. You are visually sensitive and understand how symmetry and a formal layout give order to a room, and hence your home is refined and calming. You are not taken in by the trends of the moment. You go for things with a timeless appeal, and appreciate old-fashioned virtues like manners and handwritten notes and making a home that is welcoming for others.

    You value creativity. You are stylish and fun loving, and can be an inspiration to others. You have a natural sense of drama, and you know you have to be willing to take risks—whether with colors, finishes, furniture choices, or ideas—for your home to stand out. Your home can be happy and lively and the place all of your friends want to be.

  2. I like yours! Especially the part that says "you appreciate old-fashioned virtues like manners and handwritten notes." :)
