Have you ever wondered if your personality directly affects your decorating directions? According to many studies and sophisticated researches, and whether it’s for choosing paint color or selecting furniture, your mood has a straight impact on your lifestyle and that said your home. Hence, since this fact is approved, let’s discuss personalities and how they really say it all out loud when it comes to interiors.
Here are a series of questions that will make you identify your type… are you an E.N.T.P? an I.S.T.J? an I.S.F.J? It’s time to venture and find out how you are decorating your interior.
First thing first: how do you label yourself… an Introvert or an Extrovert?
If you are quite calm then you’ll probably want to create a retreat where you can recharge away from the action, and wind down surrounding yourself with soothing textures and calming colors. The cozier… the happier.
The Cordia lounge chair from Cor Germany, is an exceptionally cosy one. A voluminous down cushion rests in a smooth, thin shell. So there’s just one thing left to do: Lean back and relax! Found at Altus www.altus.me
If you are an extrovert, you will rather choose some bold notes creating an entertaining open space. You tend for the ‘easy’ and ‘comfortable’ with plenty of seating.
Light and sober the Savoye sofa, designed by Marc Sadler exclusively for Désirée Italy. The informal padding is in perfect harmony with the structure and with the slim, cylindrical feet in aluminium. The soft “tub” structure is visible thanks to the backrest cushion that is narrower than the seat cushion. Spotted at Altus www.altus.me
Moving now to gathering information: on what do you rely on more… Sensing or Intuition?
You’re a mind thinker aka you’re a minimalistic and tend more to choose form over function when you’re furnishing your space.
With his usual skill, supported by a strong capacity for imagination, Philippe starck designs a table (or a mirror) that, with the simple twist of a joint, turns into a mirror (or a table) according to the necessity. Psiche by Philippe Starck for Driade found at Altus www.altus.me
No need to follow any rule or advice, you let your intuition guide you in any home related decision. You like it, you get it!
LOL:) by Arketipo Italy is young, fresh and informal like the chat language, where acronyms evolve and change quickly. Its form reminds you of a semi-closed flower, in which comfortable and enveloping petals are tied together by large zips giving a distinctive character. Found at Altus www.altus.me
Now when it comes to decision making, you tend more to Thinking or Feeling?
Thinkers are more into finding the perfect solution without relying on any kind of help. The perfect advice is always ready.

An organized personality! Everything-in-its-place when it comes to your home, you’re a perfect organizer and pretty good at it.
