DECORATING TASTE TEST DETERMINE YOUR STYLE WITH A FEW QUICK QUESTIONS
Does your home reflect you? Many of us are at a loss when it comes to decorating our home and deciding which colors, fabrics and furniture to use.
To help solve this problem, Sally Morse, Director of Creative Services for Hunter Douglas, devised a “Decorating Taste Test” inspired by Meredith’s New Decorating Book. So pick up a pencil, sit yourself down, and answer the following questions:
1. What architectural style is your dream house?
a. A restored townhouse with beautiful architectural detailing.
b. A thatched roof cottage surrounded by trees and flowers fronting a sylvan pond.
c. A penthouse loft with few interior walls, high ceilings and lots of windows.
2. Great grandma bequeathed you an old-fashioned trestle table, the perfect size for dining. What do you choose for seating?
a. Chairs from the same era, made of the same wood.
b. Dissimilar wood chairs painted a single color.
c. Mid-century modern Harry Bertoia metal chairs.
3. The colors you love to surround yourself with bring to mind
a. Favorite jewelry.
b. Your flower garden.
c. The beach.
4. When hosting a dinner party you set the table with:
a. Formal china that’s been in your family for generations, the good silver and white tapers.
b. Pottery collected over the years and glass hurricane lamps with pillar candles matching the colorful linens.
c. Translucent, white china plates, small, rock crystal vases, each sprouting a single purple zinnia marching down the center of the table, and vintage, pearl-handled flatware.
Traditional. If you answered mostly “a,” you have a great appreciation for the past, formality, and prefer one definite style over many. At the windows you might keep the treatment simple to draw attention to the furniture with Hunter Douglas Silhouette®shadings with the Signature S-VaneTM.
Comfortably casual. If you answered mostly “b,” you like furnishings that beckon, sink- into chairs and sofas dressed in solid or boldly patterned fabrics that don’t show wear and tear. Interiors in the comfortably casual mode would look well with Heritance® hardwood shutters crafted with dovetail construction for maximum strength and durability.
Simple with a spark. If you answered mostly “c,” you like a sophisticated, refined look sparked with something unexpected, a Victorian papier-mâché chair in a modern setting, for example. One recommended window treatment is the state-of-the-art, Duette® Architella® honeycomb shades from Hunter Douglas with a highly energy efficient cell-within-a-cell construction.
One-of-a-kind. If your answers vary, it probably means you like and are knowledgeable about a variety of design periods and styles and refuse to be limited to just one.
To see a variety of different Hunter Douglas products, you can visit Rebarts Interiors, an authorized Hunter Douglas Window Fashions Gallery with showrooms located at 1352 Broadway in Burlingame and 990 Industrial Road Ste. 106 in San Carlos, 650-348-1268 or 650-508-8518. www.rebarts.com.
