If your Bedroom Style Is…
Shabby Chic: You’re Compassionate
From vintage knickknacks to gently distressed furniture, this charming style exudes warmth — just like you. Whether you’re reading a novel under a cozy quilt or inviting the little ones in your life to pile onto your pillow-packed bed to watch a movie, your sanctuary can be a private respite or a welcoming retreat as you see fit.
Traditional: You’re a Driven Leader
Timeless touches, such as warm wood furniture and a pretty-yet-practical bench at the foot of your bed, don’t just point to classic taste: They hint that you see your bedroom as a true extension of your living space. Focused and ambitious, you’re always dreaming of tomorrow, and this multitasking area allows you room to do everything you need to achieve your goals, be it unwinding or catching up on work.
Glamorous: You’re a Social Butterfly
Whether you prefer vivid pops of color or light-catching chandeliers, the romantic details that characterize your decorating style point to a strong charisma and fierce femininity. When you close your bedroom door, you’re not hiding away from the world — you’re preparing to give it your all as you gather strength and confidence from this haven that both reflects and celebrates your effervescent personality.
Modern: You’re a Deep Thinker
This sleek aesthetic suggests that you embrace simplicity, in large part because a streamlined space can help you let go of mental clutter. Both poised and patient, you warm to this sparse style because you shun distractions: After all, you’ve got more than enough going on in your mind to keep you occupied as you reflect upon your daily happenings ahead of drifting off to sleep.
Eclectic: You’re a Curious Dreamer
Between the modern art on your walls and the vintage rug on your floor, your taste can’t quite be pinned down. Such boundary-busting décor reveals the complexity of your core identity. In other words, you could never decide on just one style, because you simply have too many dreams and interests to represent.
