Another Style Quiz

I have to admit that I am a sucker for style quizzes, mainly because they get it so wrong.  Am I really a Glamourous Classic? Or a Elegant Romantic? Certainly not an Antiquated Espresso!

Home Goods has another style quiz, and the answer to this one was, I thought, pretty spot on. Farmhouse Glam!imageFarmhouse Glam is the delicate, exquisite balance between beautiful femininity and rustic nonchalance. She's all about the discovery of unexpected sparkle amidst the less polished. She wears high heels and a denim jacket, a string of pearls and bare feet. And her home feels as special as it does comfortable.

My mother despairs that I have an industrial steel case in my living room – but it’s to hold my shoe collection. My desk is a steel commercial kitchen counter, but there’s a huge ornate gilt-framed bulletin board above it, with both computer cables and strands of pearls and beads hanging from it. I’ve worn heels and a denim jacket, as well as a ball skirt, cashmere sweater and cowboy boots. I like the Rough Luxe philosophy.imageFarmhouse Glam is very approachable elegance, layering texture rather than color to create a look that is modern and rustic. Chandeliers above picnic tables. Ornate candlesticks alongside weathered pieces. Dress up a picnic table with formal china.

The chandelier isn’t above the picnic table, but hanging from a tree branch in my back yard. chandelierI do use my best china and crystal for a picnic in the back yard – I can just as easily break it out there as in the dining room. And that’s my Ghost chair out there, too!image

You can take the quiz here, and then come back and share what you are!

  2. I am - they say - "Sassy and a touch Classic". Interesting combo, maybe it's due the the cooler temperatures. Fun test - thanks,

  3. I actually scheduled a blog post of my own with this for Sunday. My results were classic with a touch of boho. I did not like anything in their classic set. I always get off results; I must defy categorization. ;)

    1. I usually get strange combinations, too. But this seemed pretty close.

  4. Nuts! This one says I am "sassy boho". That is miles off. I chose what I thought were three girly pink images and two striped things...BOHO?

  7. I would say I'm "Elegant Bohemian" with a touch of " Canine Chic" for the blanket of dog hair on everything

    1. I am pretty sure I'd have to add the 'canine chic' as connor sheds bucketloads.

  8. I always suspected that I had no style, and now I have proof. Not a single one of those images "spoke" to me, so I have no results.

    By the way, do you really have an outdoor chandelier? Is it electrically safe? It sure is a great image.

    1. The chandelier is candle-lit and hangs well enough below the branches as not to be a danger. And I don't light it a lot, although I am looking forward to seeing it lit during our first snow!

  9. Boho. I laughed when I read the description, b/c the website said that I like footstools and the like. As it just so happens, I just recently purchased a yellow and white footstool for the sun porch. I think total Boho doesn't quite catch my style, but I think it captures my attraction to bright colors. -- waterloverus

    1. I thought there was one style that was "set sail" or something like that. i am surprised you didn't get that one!

  10. Took the test: turns out that I'm a "Vegas Baby" with a touch of "BoHo". This duo suits me very well!

    It explains my fondness for enriched colours in my interiors. I happily live (for the past dozen years) with a deep coloured old-fashioned cabbage rose chintz mixed with red tartan accessories. Can you can believe it?

    There are nine colours in the chintz which has a background colour of wine. I love rummaging for the growing number of accessories, in red tartan, to add to the mix!

    It all works for me: makes me feel instantly 'at home' the moment I walk in the door.
    This Vegas Baby/BoHo moniker works for me too.
    Great post!

  12. I am a socialite. Who knew? I picked colorful fabric, pearls and diamond (reminds me of the mirror I'm using for a backsplash in my new kitchen—the one that also has tool boxes for an island). I avoided Jr League like the plague and now that I'm in my 60s, it's come back to haunt me!

    Love the mix the high/low, the rough lux. The socialite not so much!
