This forced-choice exercise is stolen, as always, from Meg Fowler. Furnishing and decorating a home involves lots of decisions; mine are underlined.
CHOOSE YE: DESIGN/DECOR/I LOVE LAMP EDITION
Floor lamps or table lamps or sconces? (note: not scones. everyone prefers a scone…)
Low lighting or major lighting (when there is no natural light)? (I always care about having enough light to read.)
Window treatments or simple shades/rod and drape?
Big TV in the living room, or hidden away in a den or bedroom?
Photographs everywhere, or mostly just art? (We’ve got some pretty arty photographs, actually…)
Wood or metal?
Light woods or dark woods?
Chairs that recline or chairs that… well, they’re chairy
Smooshy couches or structured couches?
Indie furniture stores or big chains?
Tidy or cluttered?
FILL IN THE BLANK BONUS: Favorite room to decorate? Bedroom
Living room off-limits, or that’s where your family hangs out?
Design-focused furniture or traditional, common shapes?
Big, bold prints or smaller patterns/prints?
Antique or modern?
Major colors or neutrals with a bit of color?
Lots of different textures, or just a bit?
Great room/open concept or contained spaces?
Fragrance (candles, etc.) or none?
Get things decorated for you, or do it yourself?
Create an overall look right away, or build it over time? (This would change if I came into a lot of money, though)
Form or function, overall?
