what decor style are you?
I’ve always coined my design style as “romantic chic.” So I was intrigued when I read on my friend’s blog that you could take a quiz on Sproost that pinpoints your personal style. Interesting. My results? 100% Hollywood Couture:
“Welcome to Hollywood! What’s your dream? That’s right, it’s time to roll out the red carpet and get ready for the sparkle of crystal and all things flashy that make up Hollywood Couture.
Glam style originated in high-end lifestyles that made up the years between the roaring 20’s and the swinging 40’s, where it was important to bring a feeling of glamour to the home when the world outside may have lacked it. Nowadays it’s scratching a similar itch in the sense that it’s bringing a sense of opulence to a world that seems to have forgotten how much fun it can be!
The great thing about the updated version of the style is how versatile it is. You can take it in any direction and add almost any style into the mix — perhaps a contemporary leather sofa paired with lacquered Louis XIV chairs that have been upholstered in lush velvet. The key is that each item feels as rich and over-the-top as possible and yet everything still seems livable. It’s not a space that screams: ‘do not touch’ – rather it almost dares you to experience its luxury.”
Okay, I can see that…especially when I love interiors like this which, according to Sproost, is the epitome of Hollywood Couture. Not sure how accurate this really is, my friend received a 67% Vintage Modern and 33% Nantucket…she was quite surprised about the Nantucket portion. What’s yours?
