    Mostly As: Your style is Hues.
    You’re a creative soul with a unique personal style. Your eye is instantly drawn to pops of colour, from a bright velvet cushion to a statement artwork or wall.

    Mostly Bs: Your style is Light.
    Kick back and relax, because you love the simpler things in life. Your home should reflect your casual classic feel, with lots of airy lighting and coastal accents.

    Mostly Cs: Your style is Moody.
    Your home is where ideas are born, and you should have the calming, broody space to match. You’re not afraid to go dark, but sophisticated and striking midnight tones.
