How you decorate your home is a unique way to express who you are as a person. To begin, we recommend taking the Myers-Briggs personality test if you haven’t already. It is about as accurate as it gets when it comes to personality tests. Once you know your personality type, the fun part begins—decorating!
To help you find the decor that is right for your personality type, FTD has created a fun guide that provides home decor ideas based on the four main Myers-Briggs personality types, including: Analysts, Diplomats, Sentinels and Explorers. Everyone has a different style when it comes to home decor and this guide does the perfect job of helping you brainstorm ideas that are right for you!
Analysts are good at recognizing their surroundings. They are strategic thinkers, analyzing the situation around them and coming up with the best solution. As an analyst, you know what is best for you. So, go with your gut and don’t be afraid to think outside of the box. Here are some of our suggestions for the smart and curious:
- Strategic thinkers
A modern look is perfect for an Analyst’s no-nonsense look on life. Just like the way they think, an Analyst’s home decor should be strategic and innovative. This can be done with sleek countertops and solid neutral colors. Analysts should play around with accessories such as lamps or appliances to show their more imaginative side.
Diplomats are very sensitive to others and enjoy giving to the people that they are close to. They are in touch with their emotions and those around them, and need a relaxing space that will make them and the people they are with happy. If you fall into the Diplomat category, here are some ways you can do that:
A diplomat’s charisma inspires others—which reflects in their unique taste in decor. Choosing colors that channel their creative and quiet nature are essential when choosing the style of their home decor. Pastels and rustic accessories are perfect for a diplomat’s cozy abode!
Sentinels are known for having a more organized nature. They like things to be planned in advance and love taking things step-by-step to check it off their to-do list. Always putting others’ needs before their own, it’s time to decorate for you! Here are some of our suggestions.
Creating a warm and comforting space with comfy couches and chairs is essential when decorating for a Sentinel. However, because of their fact-minded and practical mentality, home organization is key. Vintage tables and shelves work well to show their practical side, while also adding a personal touch.
The entertainers, entrepreneurs, adventurers and virtuoso types need a room that is meant for entertaining. You love to be surrounded by people and your decorations should reflect that. Here are some ways you can make your living space reflect your energetic vibes:
The enthusiastic and carefree characteristics of Explorers reflect in their vibrant choice of home decor. Playing around with patterned rugs and colored throw pillows to create an eclectic vibe is perfect for their flexible yet bold nature. They also love to glam up their living space with gold colors and fancy mirrors.
