This is awesome. You know how most books/blog/everything always tells you to think of a theme or your style to help you start your wedding planning? Well, though not for weddings, I found this great quiz that tests you on your taste for decor- interior design more specifically. It’s a great leaping off point for those of you who are just starting wedding planning and I love how totally accurate it is.

Here’s my results:

36% Hollywood Couture
36% French Eclectic
28% Cottage Chic

Hollywood Couture

“Welcome to Hollywood! What’s your dream?” That’s right, it’s time to roll out the red carpet and get ready for the sparkle of crystal and all things flashy that make up Hollywood Couture.

Glam style originated in high-end lifestyles that made up the years between the roaring 20’s and the swinging 40’s, where it was important to bring a feeling of glamour to the home when the world outside may have lacked it. Nowadays it’s scratching a similar itch in the sense that it’s bringing a sense of opulence to a world that seems to have forgotten how much fun it can be!

The great thing about the updated version of the style is how versatile it is. You can take it in any direction and add almost any style into the mix — perhaps a contemporary leather sofa paired with lacquered Louis XIV chairs that have been upholstered in lush velvet. The key is that each item feels as rich and over-the-top as possible and yet everything still seems livable. It’s not a space that screams: “do not touch” – rather it almost dares you to experience its luxury

Now where did that fall into my wedding? Awhile back Domino magazine interviewed these two ladies that talk to you and then give you two words that totally describe you. I always thought of my style and self as ‘rustic glam'(yes, you may all laugh now). But it helped head me in a direction when planning my wedding. You can’t be everything for your wedding which is darn hard not to do. EVERYTHING is so cute/cool/unique. It seems like there is a million billion ideas out there. But by centering yourself and starting from your style perspective, it can held weed out what you should or should not be doing.
