My Style Profile

I took a quiz about my style and here are the results.

This survey really describes my style.

I am a traditionalist at heart with an eye towards more eclectic looks.

I have furniture including two Bergère chairs from the 1950s that have been passed down in my family.

I like classic looks and coordinated pieces in my home but like to add some energy and personality with a few more eclectic pieces. I may like a more antique look or gilded accents or just tailored lines, but I prefer a look that is mostly uniform and balanced.

I .  .  .

  • want my home to be stylish and that is a reflection of me and my overall tastes.
  • like to include pieces with a classic look such as antiques or items with a sense of history to them.

    The kitchen island was made from my mother’s antique breakfront.
  • want my home to be comfortable and inviting and that is a reflection of me and my lifestyle.
  • want my home to have a bright, cheerful look.
  • I love the brightness of the conservatory.
  • see my home as an expression of my personal style.
  • like classic modern pieces.

    I like the cleans lines of a glass coffee table.
  • like ethnic accents and a “worldly” look.
  • like your space to look somewhat dramatic.
  • like cool colors.

    The master bedroom is the coolest of blues.
  • like bright pops of color or colorful accents.

    I like bright pops of color in the usually cool rooms.
  • like to use some traditional gilded or wood accents in my  home to give it a sense of timelessness.
  • like the look of natural materials in my home.

    Rattan bench adds a casual touch to the more conservative furniture.

This is definitely my style.

What’s yours?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

    1. I’m not sure. I’ll see if I can find it again. Sometimes I save results of internet things as a text document so I don’t lose them but don’t have the original link. Jo
