It's a portal to your personality — not just your house.
The thought of holiday-themed flags, clutter, or knicknacks raises your blood pressure. While some might say you're "uptight," we think you just appreciate the beauty of subtlety. There is a confidence in knowing that your well-tailored button down shirts, as well as your neutral upholstered furniture, will never appear out-of-date.
You take it personally when others mock the optimistic charm of Zooey Deschanel. You walk the line between individualism and crowd-pleasing. While you're not one to let it all hang out, you feel strongly that your home (and style) should reflect your personality. That pop of yellow on an otherwise staid home is your way of standing out from the crowd.
Your motto came from Auntie Mame: " You find inspiration in the distinctive personalities of decades past, from Draper to Hepburn (always Katharine) to Schiaparelli. As such, you have no patience for those who don't take risks or bother expanding their worldview. Weirdly, you are likely to be friends with the "Gray Door" person — you both appreciate the finer things.
If you could live anywhere, it would be London. Or, heck, anywhere in the U.K. You're fascinated by the respect for history, from the elegant townhomes to the enchanting cottages, and polished-yet-nostalgic approach to decor. Your garden is your haven, you happily use your fine china, you have an impressive collection of tea, and your TV is perpetually tuned to a britcom. Your dearest wish is that all little kids would dress like Prince George.
If you're not on the coast, you're in a decidedly "beachy" state of mind. You're a beacon of calm in this crazy world. Your home is truly a getaway, likely accented with at least one slipcovered sofa or chair and a sisal rug. As such, you never felt the need to "unplug" — who needs to zone out with an iPhone when you're surrounded by beauty?
Modern design speaks to you on a truly deep level, even if you don't yet have the sleek home of your dreams just yet. You appreciate the combination of clean lines with a jolt of color, can expound about the importance of "negative space," and have an unsentimental approach to clutter. It's not that you're a minimalist, you just want every well-curated piece in your home to shine.
You've marched to the beat of your own drum for so long, you're the band's conductor and percussion section. If someone has turned their nose at your design decisions, you haven't noticed — and, quite frankly, you don't care. You have a singular joie de vivre and happily collect everything (including friends). If you're not an artist, you were in a past life.
You're unimpeachably chic in every way. You always seem to know the right things to say, the right things to do, and the right thing to wear. Yet, such things come from living a busy life, encountering loads of different people, places, and situations. You rely on the classics because they give you time to focus on other things and give you room to accessorize in your own unique way.
You've long been a fan of preppy style and would live in a Ralph Lauren showroom if you could. The forest green hue reminds you of your favorite season: Autumn, a time for wearing your favorite Hunter boots, homecoming, and, of course, pumpkin spice lattes. Yet, the color also just feels welcoming all-year-round, which is especially important for your action-packed party hosting schedule.
You're all about tradition. Your home is filled with treasured heirlooms, family photos, and lovingly-cared-for wood furniture. The navy blue front door never changes (except perhaps during the winter, when a tasteful wreath adorns it), and why would it? The color works brilliantly with classic brass accents, the green of well-pruned hedges, and your favorite accessory, the American flag.
