This month’s issue of Real Simple has a fun visual quiz which will help you determine your decorating personality. What you do is look at the images, choose those which speak to you and your decor preferences will be unveiled.
One of the images used in the quiz is none other than our large mixed peony bouquet which we will be adding to Diane James Home later this month. According to Real Simple, if these peonies appeal to you, you are “vintage eclectic” and not the other three decor styles listed in the article.
While we agree that delicate pink and cream peonies would please the Grey Gardens in all of us, we also think peonies are perfect for every decor.
White Peonies for “Sophisticated Classic”…
Blush Peonies for “Cozy Casual”…
and Pink Champagne Peonies for “Modern Graphic”…
So whether you’re “sophisticated classic” or “modern graphic” with a little “cozy casual” mixed in, a pretty peony bouquet is a perfect way to finish a room.
You can take the quiz online here and read more about your personal decorating style in Real Simple!

I have a similar post lined up for later next week! Love these types of quizzes, thinking I am Vintage Eclectic based on those gorgeous peonies! (and guess what?! Just saw Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan having lunch at the same beach side restaurant as us! Had to tell someone since my kids and husband had no idea what I was talking about!)
Didn’t mean to steal your thunder! Aren’t Jonathan and Simon the cutest? What were they wearing? Swimsuits or casual linens? Glad to have you back in the ‘hood!
love that they pair the style with flowers… I think I might be the peony will get to the quiz to make sure!
Oh, I adore them all.
Off to take the quiz.
pve – I think you should buy yourself a birthday present… how about a Middle Kingdom vase with some pretty peonies!
Happy St. Paddy’s Day to you too. I keep forgetting to tell you how much I LOVE your arrangements! I’ve admired them for so long and they just keep getting prettier and prettier. So glad to know you and your blog.
Thanks, Gwen! The admiration is definitely mutual – your blog is something I look forward to reading and I love your design aesthetic. Isn’t it fun to be inspired by beautiful things?
I absolutely love peonies – they top roses in my book! Thanks so much for your comment and visit. Have a great Thursday!
