Decorating Styles - What is my style - More Quizzes

This could be addictive.  There are so many quizzes available on the internet and each takes a slightly different approach.  I am, however, starting to see a definite pattern.

One quiz (stylishhome.com) asked a variety of questions and determined I was "Old World Extravagance" like Greta Garbo and Winston Churchill.  Having visited Churchills' birthplace, Blenheim Palace, in England last year, I couldn't agree more.  I would love to live in this palace!

The other quiz was sponsored by Kaboose and called "Quiz:  What's Your Decorating Style".  This one showed images of houses, interiors, art, etc. and asked you to choose your favorite.  The conclusion - right on point - predominantly traditional but with a good mixture of other styles:

If you’re looking for something classic, you’re looking for something traditional. Traditional décor is very planned and orderly. The furniture matches down to the last detail and is usually upholstered. The feel of the room should be understated, which can be pulled off using mid-range classic patterns and colors for everything from lamp shades to window drapes.

30% - Contemporary
30% - Country French
40% - Traditional
