What is your decorating personality?

Do you know your decorating personality? Take this short quiz to reveal your unique home decor style. Find out if you are a “Thoroughly Modern Millie”, a “Traditional Tracy” or a “Boho Bonnie” and then get decorating ideas based on your decorating archetype.


Boho Bonnie

You are not impressed by a fancy price tag and rather spend the weekend scouring flea markets and etsy for the perfect vintage finds.

To complement your boho style, choose mixed media collage art which goes well with large comfy sofas and rumpled cotton slipcovers, mismatched wood furniture painted white or a pale color, accessories with a timeworn appearance, including distressed paint and a mix of floral motifs for fabrics, china, and artwork.

Traditional Tracy

You crave tradition in your life and want to surround yourself with timeless classics. To complement this decorating style look to invest in upholstered seating, wool rugs, and original art.
To enhance a traditional aesthetic you can also add these decorating touches

  • Medium to dark woods with a polished finish
  • Brass and crystal accents on light fixtures
  • Dressmaker details such as tassels and trims

Thoroughly Modern Millie

You are modern through and through and this shows from the clothes you wear to the latest hairstyle. Your fingers tips always are painted with the trendiest shades and you feel most comfortable in rooms that show off your advanced sense of style.

For this look keep your sofa neutral so that you can always refresh with a new set of pillows. Choose art on canvas with sides painted black for a “just from the art gallery” look and feel.
Accessorize with global touches and be sure to mix low and high end items.

  1. Well! no big surprise, I am a Boho Bonnie! You can find me at a flea market, second hand store or painting a piece of furniture a pretty color. Will think about adding a piece of mixed media art to my home..have never thought about that!

  2. I am Boho Bonnie, I love mixing old & new things together. I love the hunt of finding an unexpected treasure. I like to give new life and re purpose an old treasure.

    • Boho Bonnie of these three. I like quiet, calming nature colors in my home and the art work. Also love trees and water art on my wall.
      Love your tessching style and thank you for all the “extra” perks you give from your heart. I am finding this time with ‘Schulman art’ to be not only a learning experience but also it’s like I have found a therapist, too. 😊🙏🏻

  3. I got Boho Bonnie and I think it's the closest to my interior style, though I would be totally unable to define it myself, unless it were with a "it's not…". Indeed, there is mixed media on my walls and fairly mismatched furniture but no floral motif or china at all. For interior deco I really go with my heart, my fancy and my intuition, never with the latest trend or the "not to dos".

  4. I'm a Boho Bonnie and yep, it's me! However, I call it eclectic.

    • I also consider my style as rather eclectic. The Boho Bonnie description describes my style quite accurately. I like vintage finds, family heirlooms, traditional quilts, ( especially ones that share a story) Gifts from the heart that are often handmade. I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes that are savory and nutritious. So i really like kitchen gadgets and a mix of seasonal and everyday dishes.

  6. I got Boho Bonnie too. Lol. Kind of fits the way I am. I love flea markets. Old tables and furniture. Kind of antiqued looking.

  7. I got Boho Bonnie, too, although I don't think it's accurate. I'd have to say I'm elegant country, though I've never heard of that! I didn't know the four girls at the beginning either; I assume they are celebrities.

  8. When I first saw this I thought I have no idea what my style would be. Then I thought probably traditional but when I answered the questions I got BOHO Bonnie and the description absolutely fits me to a T! Love this!

  9. It seems I am a Traditional Tracy according to the quiz–and they happen to be right! I do tend to the traditional in all I do.
