I am participating in the “What’s Your Style In One Picture” Challenge, Summer 2009, put on by Alek over at From the Right Bank to the Left Coast blog. I am choosing one picture to encapsulate my design style. Now, not being particularly visually creative, I wondered how I would even begin to define this. I like so many different looks, if they're done well! So I cheated a bit and took the "What's your style?" quiz over at

Surprise! My result was: Old World, New Way
Deep, rich and regal but muted for a time-worn effect. Finishes are distressed, woodwork is rough-hewn. A lived-in but luxurious old world.

I was happy with this result, even though I wouldn't say I'm particularly married to it. So I sought out some "Old World" kitchens and found the pic above.

Take the quiz for yourself! What's your style?

  1. Hi, Meg! Thanks so much for participating in the challenge! This kitchen reminds me of those gorgeous villas in Tuscany or the South of France. I can just imagine the most amazing meals being made in a kitchen like that. That stove! I covet it. And how gorgeous are the cabinets? It's fantastic. Thanks again for playing along!
