What's your stylescope?

On the recommendation of Jessica Jones of How About Orange, I spent a fun few minutes the other day, finding my Stylescope by taking a short quiz on the HomeGoods Stylescope website.

I had to pick five images that "spoke to me" from a selection of 36 and when I clicked to get the results,  I was given a label that defined my style, a paragraph describing my style and then some hints and tips on how to style my home in this way.

The idea is that this picture becomes my facebook timeline cover - what would that say about me?!

I ended up falling into the Classic category, which I was a little disappointed by - it's not really very cool is it! Having said that, there are some elements of Classic that are probably me, although not necessarily the part that exudes "undisturbed calm"!

Apparently Classic, "knows there's a place for everything - and everything belongs in its place". I wish! "She's a perfectly tailored dress." Hmm. "A smooth, 4-tiered wedding cake". Well, we had three, but it had little pink sugar flowers all over it, so it wasn't at all smooth. "And she embues her sense of structure" (this perhaps is a little of me)  with a graceful elegance, an undisturbed calm, and of course, an irrefutable beauty." Ahem.

I also don't like the idea of entertaining by filling, "a crystal centrepiece with faux or real roses". However, hunting for "an ornate, antique mirror frame" does sound like fun.

Oh well, perhaps not so accurate, but it was interesting to be labelled in a way that made me think about how I actually define myself and then rile against their label!

These are the five images I selected - does classic style spring to mind for you?






I'd be interested to hear if you take the quiz and feel it gives you an accurate description of your style.

Hi there - I couldn't resist having a go at this and I was labelled Modern Metro with a hint of Classic. I matched you on bottom two pictures and nearly went for the top two as I like the wood pile. I actually chose the water lily, the pie on the cake stand and the white dish with something on it like an olive as I love plain white dishes. I do love simple clean modern and minimalist lines but then I also appreciate both retro and vintage although these are not categories in the styleometer. I'm probably a Laura Ashley meets loft kinda girl!! Good fun though.
