In preparation for my upcoming purge, I ventured over to Sproost to take the website’s quiz on what decorating style I most like. I figure that if I’m selling most everything I own, going homeless for eight days, and moving into a roommate situation in which my bedroom really will be my sanctuary, the least I can do is set it up correctly from the beginning.
You can take kid out of the country but you can’t take the country out of the kid… or is your theme “you can take the kid out of the city, but you can’t take the city out of the kid?” Either way you play it, you are one of the unique individuals who loves a mix of modern and country. The clean lines of the modern softened by rustic /vintage elements is the perfect mix in your mind. And can we blame you? You’ve taken the best aspects of two popular designs and mixed them in a manner that appeals young and old alike. A subtle background of white or light colors provides a nice canvas for all the wonderful flea market, eBay or garage sale finds as well as the classic modern pieces that you love.
I find it entertaining that this style is a blend of what I grew up with—classic, Texas-country sensibilities—and the world I find myself in now (a highly urban and modern setting). Best of all, I get to combine new and time-worn items and it’s perfectly okay. Unique individual, indeed.
