Modern Elegance

I took this quiz, as suggested by The Shabby Nest. The first time I did it, it said it couldn't figure out my style and to take it again. Then it said I was 100% Modern Elegance. I found that odd until I read the description... I *don't* like the plates on the wall, but I like everything else.

Modern Elegance

Variety is the spice of life! And nowhere is this truer than in the design of your home. You may love contemporary, but wish it wasn't quite so cold and austere, or perhaps you're drawn to traditional rooms but you'd like to create a less cluttered and busy space. Transitional Style is here to marry those apparent contradicting designs.

And guess what? It's the contradictions that make the mix of contemporary and traditional so successful. The result is an elegant room that appeals to young and old alike. A sofa with modern lines blends seamlessly with a pair of traditional chairs. New fabrics work so well on antique pieces. It turns out that modern art looks even more exciting above a collection of traditional pieces. The room feels simple and sophisticated, elegant and hip.

I took this quiz, and I was 44% Vintage Modern. Glad there's a name for it! Question: I need to know what's wrong with Lennox. Is it ultra cheap? I have no idea about these kinds of things.
