The Best Interior Style For You, Based On Your Personality

February 27, 2018
BOOKMARK

Like your taste in clothes, music, food and everything in between, how we choose to design our spaces (and live in them) is an expression of who we are. Ever wondered if you could sum up yourself in a house... what would it be? We think we might have a clue!

Read on to find out which particular interior style best reflects your personality (plus tips on how you can achieve the look for your space).


Modern

Interior style based on personality

Interior Designer: Hoe & Yin Design Studio

What is it:

A look that's a favourite with Malaysian homes, the modern style - quite simply - doesn't go out of style.

With an emphasis on timeless design elements and quality finishes, expect clean-cut lines, set in neutral shades such as grey, browns, black and white.

Interior style based on personality

Interior Designer: Gusto Design & Build

Another key feature? The use of polished materials, such as wood, leather and metals that lend an upscale flair to this look!

The Modern style is for you if...

Interior style based on personality

Interior Designer: X Dimension Design

  • You're a fan of all things classic - think black-and-white movies, Audrey Hepburn and Marlon Brando.

  • Quirky, trendy stuff are not your thing - you gravitate towards items that are clean, simple and well-made.

  • You're the type that often thinks for the long term - will this interior style still stay classy even after 10, 20 years? After all, renovating a home is a huge investment to make!


Scandinavian

Interior style based on personality

Interior Designer: UP Creations

What is it:

Inspired by homes in Nordic countries such as Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland, the Scandinavian style is highly functional, yet simple and warm.

Reflecting the region's climate and culture for good living (remember hygge and lagom?), comfort is key, along with a lighter palette and use of natural (preferably eco-friendly) materials, such as woods.

Also, don't be deceived by its tidy, understated look. While spaces aren't necessarily filled with furniture and knick knacks, it's all about quality, not quantity. There's a focus on selecting well-made, timeless designs.

The Scandinavian style is for you if...

Interior style based on personality

Interior Designer: Designlah

  • You're a fuss-free, easygoing person. The Scandinavian style is all about bringing a tinge of lightheartedness to a space!

  • You value quality time with family and friends. Home is a place of retreat and comfort - and this style stresses cosiness above all else.

  • You're a bit of an eco-warrior - you believe in choosing sustainable design solutions, and feel at ease when you're with nature.

  • You like your spaces neat and tidy. The clean, almost-minimal look of Scandinavian interiors leave no room for unnecessary clutter or adornments.


Eclectic

Interior style based on personality

Interior Designer: Seshan Design Sdn Bhd

What is it:

When you love decorating your home so much that you just want to have everything, that's when you know you're going eclectic.

More than just a single aesthetic, the eclectic style is a mixture of multiple styles, influences and inspirations that come together to form a unique (but cohesive) space.

Interior Designer: ID Industries

Understandably, it is also one of the hardest styles to get right - much like painting a masterpiece, each piece has a role to play in the overall harmony and balance of a space. A good eye for colours, textures and patterns is needed; especially if pairing zebra prints with floral wallpapers has seriously crossed your mind!

The Eclectic style is for you if...

Interior style based on personality

Interior Designer: SQFT Space Design Management

  • You have a bold, colourful personality that isn't afraid to stand your ground on the things you love.

  • You're well-read, well-traveled, and are constantly inspired by various sources - from the different countries you visit, to the books you read and movies you watch.

  • Your wardrobe is more rainbow than monochrome - you love colour, and are not afraid of experimenting with unexpected combinations.

  • You have a knack for mixing and matching things with a certain flair (for the dramatic).

Industrial

Interior style based on personality

Interior Designer: Studio Bikin

What is it:

Taking inspiration from (no surprise) industrial spaces such as factories, lofts and yards, Industrial design's edgy, rough-hewn look has long appealed homeowners thanks to its practicality and affordability.

Interior style based on personality

Interior Designer: MIL Design & Construction

Here is function and form at its best; raw, unfinished surfaces, boxy, low-maintenance pieces and exposed elements (like pipes, light bulbs and cement screed floorings) are key features in an industrial-themed space.

The Industrial style is for you if...

Interior style based on personality

Interior Designer: Amorphous Design

  • You like your stuff functional (more than aesthetic). If it does the job, it's good.

  • You're more cool and collected than bold and brash - and the industrial style's cold, sturdy and solid pieces are just the right fit for your straightforward personality.

  • Cookie-cutter isn't your thing - rather than buying mass-produced stuff, you'd rather try a hand at making something that's uniquely for you. You might have some DIY projects up your sleeve!

  • While you don't like messes, you like a space that doesn't require you to fuss and fret over. Just like your laid-back, low-maintenance soul, your home has to be the same!


Minimalist

Interior style based on personality

Interior Designer: Pocket Square

What is it:

In many ways, the Minimalist style is an 'anti-style'. With a 'less is more' philosophy, the bare essentials is all you need to achieve respite and clarity in a space (and in life).

Basic furniture, an uncluttered, spacious layout and an emphasis on clean lines and shapes are the core features in any minimalist interior.

Interior style based on personality

Interior Designer: Core Design Workshop

In the pursuit of purity, distracting decorative elements, accessories or detailing are cast aside to make way for a clean, uncluttered look.

The Minimalist style is for you if...

Interior style based on personality

Interior Designer: Pocket Square

  • You are a master of Zen, and believe that happiness does not derive from material pleasures (ohm...).

  • You are very particular about cleanliness, and prefer a space that allows you to spot even the tiniest pinch of dirt.

  • You're organised to a fault, and enjoy decluttering your space every once in a while.

  • You're a frugal individual who thinks twice before buying an item.
