You plant handcuffs on your bedside table just to keep visitors guessing, and are on a first-name basis with the folks at John Derian. Clashing patterns and all things whimsical (see Pedro Friedeber...
Your bedding is a strategic riot of block-print patterns by John Robshaw and Les Indiennes. Your walls are a meticulous array of paintings and photographs stalked at auctions and estate sales; your ...
Your unofficial motto is “put a flag on it,” and your accents imply winning: model sailboats, vintage badminton rackets, and leather head handmade footballs. Some might say you’re preppy or traditio...
Philosophically you lean minimal, because, you know, mo’ stuff mo’ problems, but you just can’t help collecting things: dreamcatchers, hand-knit afghans, kitschy artwork, and succulents by the cartl...
You’ve been mistaken for the Dos Equis “most interesting man in the world,” and those who know you best would describe you as unknowable. You gravitate toward moody, dark colors with exotic textures...

To you, paisley is a neutral, acid green is the new beige, and the English country-house look is the starting point for a decorating fantasia. Baroque is an understatement; neo-gothic opulence is a ...
You’ve never met a chevron-striped area rug you didn’t like. A bright turquoise foo dog sits atop the latest issue of Anthology on your nightstand (right next to the iPad edition of Lonny, of course...
Layered Turkish kilims grace the wood-planked floors of your home; flea-market portraits are stacked against an old boyfriend’s forgotten guitar (it’s yours now, anyway). Antique suzanis take the pl...
Pale roses in a mint julep cup adorn your antique mantel; chintz drapery flutters over your windows. Your favorite pieces tend toward a palette of shabby whites and warm neutrals. You love to enscon...
You can spot an Eames reproduction from a mile away—and instantly know the difference between Case Study House 20A and 21B. A well-stocked wooden bar cart is the stuff of your dreams. You lust after...
You don’t “do your makeup” at a sink, you “put on your face” seated at a vanity. You like oversize and outsize and nothing in between—grandeur is the name of the game, preferably in 50 shades of gol...
