Cool Creatives

Your style is colourful and modern. You like a touch of vintage and a hint of Scandi-style, your kids wear Little Bird clothing and you like to hang out at the Tate Modern when you visit London. Your art should be vibrant, bold and fun.

Nautical but nice

You’re most at home with the wind in your hair, the sound of waves breaking on the shore and the smell of seasalt in the air. Bring some nautical style into your home with cool blues and dramatic seascapes.

Mostly minimal

You love clean lines, simple design and clutter free imagery. You see beauty in the uncomplicated. Monochrome is your friend and simple large prints make a strong impact on the walls of your home.

Country Lover

With your welly boots on you love a romp through the open countryside and a pub lunch in front of a roaring fire. Your style nods towards the traditional, embracing nature and bringing the outside in.

Trendy Urbanite

You love the buzz of the city and the striking shapes of the architecture. Your windows may not have million pound views of iconic buildings, but you can still enjoy them on the walls of your home or tease yourself with glimpses of a far off city you long to visit.

Lots of lovely art there! I am apparently a country lover, but I like a lot of the art in each group! 🙂

I love anything with the sea to be honest. I think it’s because we live a long way from it.

I was a bit of a mix up when I did the quiz with one from each I think 😉

I love nature and nautical pictures, especially in our house bit I’s quite drawn to abstract too.

My answers were a bit of a mix up which probably defines my style! We have lots of pieces of artwork all over the house.

I am planning a nautical theme for my front room and those beach hut pictures would be perfect

I really do like the Andy Warhol Guns but find myself drawn to the trendy ones! My personal style is very hit and mix though and as I get older I find myself drawn to abstract a lot more. Stephen
