MOSTLY As: Loco for boho? Your design style is Bohemian. Odds are you're a traveller artist or free spirit and it shows through your laid-back personality and mix-and-match aesthetic.
MOSTLY Bs: Your design style is Industrial. You love converted lofts, original brick and exposed ductwork but, even if you don't live in an industrial space, there are still ways to incorporate this edgy, utilitarian style into your home.
MOSTLY Cs: Your design style is Maximalist. You know what they say: more is more. Maximalism is back in a big way for 2019 in diametric opposition to the Minimalist styles that have been dominating design trends for the last few years.
MOSTLY Ds: Your design style is Scandinavian. Simple, light, clean and cozy; there's a reason why Scandinavian style continues to dominate our design feeds. Embrace the hygge and bring Scandi design into your space for 2019.
MOSTLY Es: Your design style is Hollywood Regency. Bring on the glamour! You're all about rich colours, luxurious fabrics and lacquered finishes. Embrace your inner superstar and let your high-end taste shine through a Hollywood Regency aesthetic if you're feeling a little bit Gatsby this year.
