I personally have what she describes as a "traditional" style (as defined by the style guide/quiz in the book), but there really was nothing resembling traditional in the book, even by her own definition of traditional.
This book overrated and frankly ridiculous. I'm not sure I've ever returned a style book in my life, so this is a first. [SPOILER] She only says two useful things in the book: 1) Find pictures of home decor that speak to you, and emulate them (which is fantastic and classic home decor advice) and 2) hang curtain rods higher, longer and wider than the windows so that they don't block light and look more polished (another gem for any style). Both those tidbits I found online and nothing else in the book came close to useful. I recommend instead Domino: The Book of Decorating: A Room-by-Room Guide to Creating a Home That Makes You Happy. The advice in that book is timeless and practical. I've owned this book for years, it is by no means dated and the room by room style guides continue to provide advice that keeps my personal space fresh and beautiful. I especially LOVE the "small space solution" section in every chapter that gives advice for smaller spaces. Despite the dozens of home decor books that I own, I find that I use the Domino book more than any of the others. Go for that instead!
The first 26 pages are dedicated to how much better your life will be once you know your decorating style, which would be magically revealed to you once you took the quiz. The book elaborated on how it wold make your life easier, and would even reveal some things about yourself that would be helpful on a personal level.
The quiz starts by asking two questions, which determine the which set of questions you go on to answer from there. The first question was do you like curvy or streamlined (straight) furniture. I happen to like straight furniture, as I do not like wasted space. The second question asks, do you like your bookshelves sparse or loaded. I very much like my bookshelves loaded. I like to mentally calculate how much I have exceed the max load with each addition. From this I was directed to answer the first 10 questions.
I found the answers to the questions very pretentious, and not terribly relate-able . I tried to put a lot of thought in it, and it took me 30 minutes to answer all 10 questions. After sweating it out, I finally tallied my score, anxiously turned the page to find the results, and Emily's quiz accused me of being "Contemporary". In reading the description it states I like things minimal, but didn't I answer I like my bookshelves chuck full of stuff in the first place? Hmmmmmm!
I am a lot of things, but contemporary is not one of them...not even a little tiny bit. In fact, I deal and collect antiques. My new "contemporary" identity told me I have little use for the past. Everything in my house has a past. I actually found myself resenting the author.....my former hero. I studied the other styles with a longing, trying to figure out what I could have answered differently. I took the quiz again with the same results.
After the quiz, and the lost promise of self-awareness, i just didn't know where to go from there. I tried opening the book again, but was lost. I kind of skimmed through it, but not in total. Then I opened onto a page where the author mention a grid of daguerreotypes, and she lost me for good. Those were not daguerreotypes, they were etchings. Something completely, and totally different, not even in the same playing field. Perhaps if she were "contemporary" like myself, she would actually know the difference in her antique images.
Hope this review does not affect this books Ebay value.
