Habitat plus - Discover your style

Welcome — How would you describe your personal decorating style? It’s a tricky question for many of us.

Habitat plus - Discover your style has been updated. To view the the previous version (PDF file) click here...

We might love the look of very architectural clean-lined interiors... but is that really how we live? Or the bright colours of a fun family friendly space might seem a good idea today... but could you live with that sort of visual energy all year round?

There are many influences to how we choose to decorate our homes – the setting in which we live, the style of our house, our age and stage of life, or even the expectation of those around us. While we are all individuals, often we can strongly identify with a particular style, whether that’s a timeless look or one that is more fashion-driven.

The aim of this book is to help you pin down your style personality. Try our fun quiz, then check out the 13 style personalities we’ve created. You may strongly relate to one personality, or feel at home with two or three of them. Many of them have some common elements, both in terms of colour and detailing. So turn the page, and get started on discovering your style personality. Happy decorating!
