At some point, everybody finds themselves wondering, "What is my design style?" Pinterest can sometimes be like putting your face in front of a fire hydrant gushing with design styles. TMI, and not very helpful! Online style quizzes can help you navigate your style and figure out why you like certain Pinterest pins. Since online e-design has come into its own, there are loads of design style quizzes to choose from. To help you decide which ones to take (and to selfishly feed my design style quiz addiction), I took a lot of them. I'm here to let you know which ones are worth your time, and share my favorites!
Havenly is an interior design source website where you can hire designers to help you get your room together. You can use the quiz to find one of their interior designers to work with, or just take the quiz to find out what style you are. The questions are straight forward, but you do have to give them your email address.
This is a super simple picture quiz that tells you what style you mostly are. For this quiz, you'll need to grab a paper and pencil, empty your mind, and pick the style that calls to you the fastest.
This quiz uses pictures to ask you simple questions about your style. It's not fancy, and doesn't use unique interior style terms. It just gives you the foundation for your style. I took the quiz and found out I'm a modernist (who knew?!). There is so much more to my style, but when I read the result, I thought, "Yeah, that sounds like me."
HomePolish is another source to find interior design help. Their survey was short and sweet. I also go to HomePolish for lots of interior inspiration. I liked how much information they gave me about my style, plus this quiz took into account that some people's style doesn't fit a standard mold.
5. She Knows: What's Your Home Decor Personality?
This quiz is very question-driven based on things you like and don't like (most of which don't relate at all to your home). It did a good job figuring out my modern leanings. (Update: this quiz is no longer online, but you can find it on the Wayback machine's archive here)
This quiz uses a combo of pictures and lifestyle questions to come up with your style. No-frills and straight to the point. My style was eclectic chic!
This quiz shouldn't be taken as seriously as the others (i.e. the term "aesthetic" in the title), but the results give you a loose idea of what the vibe of your home should be. I got mid-century!
This quiz asked me what I think about wicker, which I think is a very important question. And if you're curious, the answer is never wicker.
This quiz was not as accurate as the others (it marked me "Traditional," which I have to politely disagree with). It was, however, fun to take, and the questions were interesting.
This is the most simple design quiz out there. It's just one question! And somehow, it manages to be pretty accurate. This one places me in the "organic modern" style.
Update 2019: Here are 2 more we like:
This is another simple quiz that gets to the heart of your style by having you selects favorite rooms and pieces.
Nine questions based on the whole room looks you prefer (inside and out). And at the end, they'll tell you about your style and give you some drink recommendations to pair with you style!
Go your style-quiz game on, and get addicted!
