Design Style

HGTV has become my channel of choice lately. I love watching all of the home makeovers, getting ideas for my own space and getting jealous of those who have the money to pour into their own spaces. :) I also enjoy watching Divine Design and other HGTV shows to get inspiration for the pieces I create for my shop The Framed Frog.

Anyway, I also enjoy a little reality tv here and there; so The Next HGTV Design Star was the perfect show to watch and unwind after church on Sunday evenings. Talk about great design ideas! I became a big fan of Loni's beautiful graphics that she painted on the walls and the interesting furniture that Dan and Antonio built themselves.

And then, after a little catching up on my blog-reading, I found that Monica at The Writer Chic also had been keeping up with The Next HGTV Design Star. She has been doing some fabulous things to her master bedroom, and I love her design style. She posted her results to a design style quiz she had taken at, and I was intrigued enough to take the quiz myself.
Here are my results:

"Jeanette, 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."

Hmmm....I am not sure about the elegant and refined part. I think the second paragraph completely describes my sense of style. I absolutely love color and have banished the white walls in most of our little home. In fact, I am sitting here now trying to think of where in our home I can incorporate that beautiful green color Antonio used in the bedroom in The Next HGTV Design Star finale.

What is your design style?

  1. Wasn't that green fantastic!? I loved it -- though I wasn't thrilled with the results of the showdown. Truth be told, of the final three, I would have loved to see the female grab the contract! =( Oh well! I will have to stick to being loyal to Divine Design! =)


Help relieve some of my insanity by letting me know you stopped by!
