HomeGoods StyleScope

For those of you that enjoy my Frugal Home Decor series, I wanted to share a fun little quiz from HomeGoods.

HomeGoods is one of my favorite non-resale spots for inexpensive home accents, like this plate rack.

HomeGoods Style Scope is a simple, FREE online tool that helps you find your style, as well as tips to put that style to use.

At the end of the quiz, you have the opportunity to enter for a weekly $5000 shopping spree or daily gift card to HomeGoods.

From HomeGoods:

The StyleScope is an invaluable tool for those who want to find their own style, and escape from the overly prescriptive home décor options of major stores. This quick online quiz is designed to help all of us who love stylish home décor but don’t know how to incorporate specific trends or styles into our own homes.

I took the quiz and my result was Country Casual:

Your home expresses your open, easygoing approach to life. You love unique finds, and can turn a few mismatched garden chairs or floral teacups into a charming arrangement. You appreciate a pretty mix of relaxed pieces, like painted wood or weathered furniture, lovely florals and other patterns, lots of throws and pillows, mementos and bunches of fresh flowers that give your home a unique sense of breeziness and charm.

You value order. You feel happiest if your home is well organized. You understand that when your house is in order, your mind feels clearer. Rather than a lot of meaningless objects or overly-designed items, you are happier with a few well-placed things. Your home is your respite from a busy life. Try to avoid letting things into your home that you don't really love.

This is actually an extremely accurate description of my approach to decorating my home! There are some additional sections on style challenges, decor and entertaining which I haven't copied here.

Take the quiz and check out your own style tips!

FYI: I learned about this tool through PR for HomeGoods. I was not compensated in any way for this post.

How fun. I just took the quiz and got the same results as you.

"You value order. You feel happiest if your home is well organized." That part is so true for me!
