You're a Transitional Style Lover!

You modern woman, you! Your favorite style is all combining two seemingly opposite styles.
Especially traditional style with modern elements.

So, what the heck is Transitional style?

Transitional design is somewhat difficult to pin down, but by definition is a comination of two opposite styles. In practice, it’s a mix of traditional design with modern elements. Think traditional wainscoting and antiques paired with clean-lined modern pieces. But it’s not a hodge-podge like eclectic decor is. Think of it like a younger version of traditional design. It’s timeless, with a hint of the current.


Wait a sec! 
Does this sound like you?
If you’re like, “um, nope, no way” then check out the other styles here. The quiz is pretty accurate, but it’s not a mind reader. (That would just be creepy!)
