Do you ever wonder why you love or perhaps even hate certain objects?
In this case I’m talking about homewares but it can apply to anything really. Things go in and out of fashion but most of us, I think, stay true to a particular look or feeling that we feel is “us”. Perhaps just honing our style as time goes on.
Certain objects for the home can bring back strong feelings and memories from childhood, especially if like me you do buy a lot of second hand and vintage bits. I admit I’ve occasionally brought something home and my other half cant bear it, he is a bit older than me so remembers different eras.
The clever people over at Co-Operative insurance have created a rather fun tool to tell you what your interior era is (or should be) … I’m told its a bit like Tinder (the dating smartphone app) where you swipe if you like!
I would describe my interior style as eclectic bohemian with a strong vintage influence, so I was intrigued as how this little tool would define me. I’m not really one for labels but quizzes like this are fun and intriguing… Ever just lost half an hour on Buzzfeed quizzes- me too!So what interior era do you think I got?
Well, I got 1920’s!!
I guessed it would be something over thirty years ago, but was surprised to have it suggest so far back. I think it must be because some of my style could be called eccentric.
I call it Addams Family style, and the 1920s did have a lot of glamour,was rather lavish and eccentric- the rich trying to out do each other with opulent or rare things for the home. Some of these quirky things I do love so this must be the reason… So I suppose this tool is somewhat accurate.
So if you’ve five minutes, make yourself a cup of tea and pop over here to have a play, do let me know what you got in the comments!
