Pro Tip

You gravitate toward simple, clean lines, with no more than two or three colors in a space. You stick to simple materials, without a lot of frills. You thrive in open spaces free of clutter and distraction, so you can focus on what lights you up. 

PRO TIPS: To enhance your minimalist tendencies, stick to a quality over quantity mindset. Curate a home that is intentional and stick to what you know you love. Invest in quality, multi-functional pieces in everything from your wardrobe to your furniture. Create uniforms with your clothing and use repetition of colors and textures from room to room throughout your home. 

Recommended Materials:

Similar to the minimalist style, a Scandinavian aesthetic is characterized by simple, Nordic functionality. If you are drawn to a Scandinavian style, you prefer light, warm spaces with clean lines and curated, simple accents. You appreciate simplicity, communal gatherings and a home that is both tidy and inviting. 

PRO TIPS: Choose materials in warm, sleek woods and use light, bright paint colors selectively. Increase the Hygge of your space with candles, throws, warm lights, whimsical florals, chunky knits, and anything that feels cozy.

You love a home that is full of color, culture and care-free embellishment. Layers, pattern, and worldly accents are your go-tos. Restrictions are boring and you want your home to tell the story of your life, travels and creative interests. 

PRO TIPS: Choose functional furniture that doubles as storage. Desks without drawers are not for you. Use your walls to curate galleries and showcase your treasures without them feeling overwhelming. 

Recommended Materials:
* Rattan
* Plants
* Macrame
* Carved Wood
* Sisal

You are a lover of nostalgia and shy away from anything too shiny and new. You like old materials, with clean lines, that can be repurposed for utilitarian functionality. You feel most comfortable in a loft or open space with lots of light where character comes from the home itself, only accentuated by the objects in it. 

PRO TIPS: Clutter can quickly accumulate around you, so choose your treasures wisely. Don’t buy on impulse but with intention. You will find that many things have a future potential but hang on to only what you will use now. Find unique and one of a kind organizational supplies and decor that combine form and function at Flea Markets, thrift stores or warehouse sales.

Recommended Materials:
* Metal
* Glass
* Weathered wood
* Brick
* Wrought Iron

You are highly influenced by minimalism and the uncluttered, naturally enhanced environments that inspired the Marie Kondo's of the world. Simplicity, with zero distractions is the lifestyle you aim for with the goal of relaxation, rejuvenation, and stillness as way to enhance your creative energy. You gravitate toward this style because you thrive in uncomplicated, straightforward environments. You don’t need things to thrive. 

PRO TIPS: Opt for deep/covered storage so you don’t have to see the clutter that will naturally develop. Designate at least one room in the house to be completely clutter free. Opt for natural materials, earthy colors and organic scents and stray from ornamentation. 

Recommended Materials:
* Wood

You have an affinity for the clean lines of modernism with a solid respect for a more colorful past. You gravitate toward bold colors, patterns and shapes and materials, but appreciate the restraint of functional design. Your home must inspire but not distract you from your creative efforts.

PRO TIPS: 
Choose your colors wisely and limit your color palette in each room. Find vintage furniture that was made to last or its modern counterpart. Spend money on key pieces like credenzas, chairs and desks that offer storage and style. 

Recommended Materials:

* Leather
* Brass
* Glass

You lean toward spaces with a shiny newness about them. You prefer clutter-free, streamlined spaces, that feel new and on trend blending masculine elements of modernism, blacks and whites, and rounded edges. You are not bound by the constraints of modern design, but lean more toward what is en vogue as long as it is pulled together in a sleek environment. 

PRO TIPS: Opt for the latest in smart storage, and high design. Oversized art, or key sculptural elements are your vibe. Choose similar colors that mix well together like browns and grays, so you can layer what’s new and inspiring. If you keep to a simple palette you can incorporate more curved lines and bold, new styling elements.

PRO TIPS: 
Keep your color palette neutral with browns, grays, and greens. Natural shapes and fibers are great for your space, but don’t worry about them being polished or new. Anything with wear or age is fair game. Woven fabrics, baskets and rugs will make your rugged house a home. Just add candles.

Traditional

If you lean toward a traditional vibe, you are most comfortable with all things elegant, consistent and comfortable. You don't lean into anything super modern or trendy. You like classic, timeless pieces that are soft, muted and easy to maintain. Traditional style tends to be very orderly, dark and rich with lots of neutrals

PRO TIP: Your style is homey and regal, and can you like it that way. To add some personality, and personalization, style your space with favorite family memories in the form of photos and mementos. Add some asymmetry in the form of a gallery wall to change things up a bit. Stretch outside your comfort zone with colored wallpaper or a few colorful throws to counterbalance your traditional wares.
