Perfect Peonies

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.
