~ Decorating Style Quiz ~
First and foremost, thank you for following me on my Facebook Page. In case you missed one of the Decorating Style choices, I have listed them again below.
DECORATING STYLES I: Here is a fun way to find out your “Decorating Style.” Look at this picture of lamps and pick out the style you like the most. Then move on to make your choice in the next picture of chairs.
DECORATING STYLES II: Here is the next picture in my “Decorating Style” quiz. This picture has 4 chairs to choose from. Select the one you like the best and then move on to make your choice in the next picture of bedding.
DECORATING STYLES III: Here is the next picture in my “Decorating Style” quiz. This picture has 4 beds to choose from. Select the one you like the best and then move on to make your choice in the next picture of accessories.
DECORATING STYLES IV: Here is the last picture in my “Decorating Style” quiz. This picture has 4 accessories to choose from.
Select the one you like the best and then add up the number of “1’s” you chose, the number of “2’s” you chose, the number of “3’s” you chose, and the number of “4’s” you chose. The one you chose the most is the key to which matches your preferences in design the most.
Quick note: if you have two (or more) that average the same, it means you have more than one style preference. If this turns out to be the outcome, read all the styles and realize you have preferences from several styles (which can be a lot of fun when decorating – especially if you prefer eclectic!).
Be sure to go back to my Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/DesignIdeas and post your style for everyone to see. Most of all, realize this is a fun way to learn about your style.
