~I'M COUNTRY ECLECTIC~

Good Morning girls...I just took the neatest quiz at Home Goods...It's only 10 questions you have to answer to find your personal style.... Click here to take....

Mine said I'm Country Eclectic...Gee and all this time I thought I was Victorian...



This is what mine said:

Gloria, you are a Country Eclectic
You have wide-ranging interests and influences and therefore appreciate a mix of styles, periods, and objects. You would never use a matching suite of furniture or could stand a home that seemed cookie-cutter. But you love the breezy, layered look of wonderfully personal beach houses and the happy florals of English cottages. Bringing the outdoors in makes you happy: a little chintz or ruffle or weathered furniture, urns filled with tennis rackets, colored glasses filled with cut flowers, vintage-looking, mixed tea cups, and all things that give a sense of a happy, simple life.
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.




But you know I do love to layer and you can't have too many pillows, I adore Chintz, I also love to mix English and French Antiques together, love all tea items, So I guess they are right I'm Country Eclectic...This is a photo of my sofa that sits on the front of my bed...So if you have time today go see what style you are....



Please remember tomorrow is my 1 year Anniversary in Bloggerville...so please come back and see what I have been up to....After all it's par-ty time and I have many gifts...I want to give to one of my followers.....



Hope all of you have a great day on your side of the mountain...until tomorrow....

Hugs and smiles Glria

I took that test and now I can't remember what it said I was! I think I'll go take it again, to jog my memory.

Have a great week!

Afternoon, Dear Gloria! I knew all that about you! I love your style and you really know how to fluff your nest, darling! I'm sending an early Happy Blogaversary!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Hi Gloria,

I just love taking those kind of quizzes! I would have guessed my style to be country eclectic...but it turned out to be Bohemia Classic! I've never even heard of that one, lol! But it was right about colors that I have been really drawn too lately.

Have a nice Sunday!
Sherri:)

Melissa Miller said...

I'll go and take it now Gloria! I'm curious. Your result does seem right on. Your home is GORGEOUS!

Be on the lookout for a special post of mine in just a little bit.

Happy Sunday! ~Melissa :)

Melissa Miller said...

Bohemian Casual??? I'm not sure I would have ever thought of that to describe my home decor' taste.
Hmmmm....:) Maybe I should try it again.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

I loved taking this test, Gloria. Here's what mine said, and I think it's pretty true to course:

Sheila, you are a Country Classic
You have a naturally refined sensibility with an appreciation for tradition and history. You value beauty, craftsmanship, and family heirlooms, but you like to open things up with pretty, easy-going pieces like painted wood or distressed furniture, lovely florals and other patterns, and bunches of fresh flowers that give your home a breezy, relaxed feeling. You love unique finds, have a thrifty, creative side, and can make these things work together.

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.

I also think that characterizes my cousin. I am featuring his house tomorrow in my blog post. He's an architect and has a summer place on Martha's Vineyard. He redid the one I'm showing and sold it right before the real estate market flattened. Whew! ;-)
Sending love your way...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Brenda @Cozy Little House said...

I took that quiz about a week ago. Of course menopause has taken my memory and shredded it. But I think it said I was country cottage.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I am "elegant classic" and I guess that works for me. I never really thought about a name for my style of decorating. It was a fun quiz. I will be here tomorrow with bells on!

Sue

mbkatc230 said...

Gloria, this quiz was so fun. It said I was Earthy Modern, and it really was spot on! Especially the part about scent being one of the most important things in a home to me. Probably because I work in a vet's office tee hee. Can't wait to check in for your anniversary post. Hugs, Kathy

Justine said...

Yep, that sure does sound like you, Gloria!!! Country eclectic. I like it!

The Stylish House said...

Gloria,
I defiantly picture you more as eclectic country then Victorian, but then what the heck do I know! I always get a kick out of these types of tests. Lately, I have been coming up bohemian classic, or something along those lines.
Cathy

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Gloria, I think this describes you and your home perfectly! "Wide range of interests"; "can't stand cookie-cutter"; "the sense of a happy life"; "warm and open". All of these sound just like your home and just like your personality! The photo of your pretty loveseat is so gorgeous. laurie

Confessions of a Plate Addict said...

Mornin' Sis...

Well I just had to go over and take this little design style quiz...it came out that my design style is "Bohemian Classic"! Hehe!

I think that your home is a little country eclectic...especially your fabulous kitchen but I do definitely say that your home has strong overtones of the Victorian style! It's fun to take these little tests though...sometimes they get pretty darn close! Hehe! Thanks for including the link for the quiz...I had fun with it!!!

Love you Sis...
