If your answers are mostly As, your style is Modern Minimalist. You like your space to be open and airy, letting in as much natural light as you can with the use of floor-to-ceiling glass windows. The furniture pieces are sleek and streamlined. Your color palette is made up of whites and grays, and you throw in a few wooden pieces (like a slim wooden console or coffee table) for warmth.

Head to furniture stores like Dimensione and BoConcept to get furniture that suit this style.  

If your answers are mostly Bs, your style is Country. You like the feminine side of things. You like curves on your furniture but you veer away from the heavily gilded or ornate ones. You like whites and pastels. You love distressed furniture, and you probably have louvered windows at home. You like to conjure up that countryside or cottage vibe through the use of toile de jouy fabric or patterned wallpaper.

Aside from Lucina Home, you may also want to visit Mav Furniture on your next shopping trip.  

If your answers are mostly Cs, your style is Industrial. You like it “dirty.” You either leave your concrete walls as is or create an accent wall made of bricks. Your kitchen is decked in subway tiles and you mix wooden and metal pieces. Tolix chairs and bar stools suit your space.

You can get these pieces at Match Contract along Pasong Tamo, Makati City and at Dimensione. You can also find furniture that suit the industrial style at Sason Shop  at 4/L Bldg. B, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City.

If your answers are mostly Ds, your style is Asian Eclectic. You like handmade Persian rugs. You have silk pillows dressing up your sofa, a sitting area on the floor, or a daybed. You have antique furniture. Buddha heads are a common sight in your home, as well as porcelain vases and tasseled accessories.

Aside from home stores, you can find accessories that suit this style in thrift shops and flea markets like Kamuning and Dapitan Arcade. 

If your answers are mostly Es, your style is Modern Classic. You mix accent chairs that sport curvy, feminine silhouettes with clean-lined sofas. You buy secondhand furniture and refinish and reupholster them to fit your space. You go for a neutral color palette, but you’re not hesitant to add a bit of color by way of soft furnishings. You buy pieces and accessories from different shopping haunts, mixing flea market finds with brand new ones. This style rarely gets dated as it is pretty much versatile.
