What Your Living Space Says About Your Personality
There’s something so intriguing about walking into someone’s home for the first time. The objects on display, the colour schemes and the furniture choices can tell you so much about that person. So what could your living space be saying about you? Let’s dive into the deeper meanings…
Minimalist interiorsThere’s been a minimalist craze following Marie Kondo’s big question of “does it spark joy?”. But if you’ve long had sleek and minimalist interiors, then chances are you’re an organised person who thrives on order. This style is also said to suit introverted personalities, as it provides the ideal personal space to breathe and unwind.
Maximalist interiorsMaximalist interiors don’t necessarily mean clutter – they simply have lots of visual interest and focal points. If you have dramatic statement walls, or bright pops of colour around your living room, then you could be a ‘maximalist’. This may well mean you’re a creative and an outgoing type, seeking excitement and intrigue.
If you have a colourful front door or a welcoming entryway, then chances are you’re a social butterfly. This could indicate that you’re an extrovert and gain energy from having others around you. Another key sign that you might like to entertain on the regular is having loads of comfortable seating options throughout your home. Tip: LIV has amazing communal dining areas where you can host big, boisterous dinner parties in your building.
Photos and artwork
If you have your family and friends’ faces up on your walls, then it’s clear that you value these people and the role they play in your life. Your personal style in artwork can really capture your personality; whether it’s kids’ drawings for a family-oriented person, landscapes for a nature-lover, or bold posters for those with an interest in pop culture or cinema.
Vintage or diverse furnishingsYou might love vintage style, or you might have filled your home with meaningful keepsakes that you’ve collected on your travels. People with diverse furnishings and styles typically have an open mind, a love for learning and a passion for new experiences. It goes without saying that a growning bookshelf is another key sign of a mind that’s open to new ideas.
Greenery and houseplants
Even the type of plants you surround yourself with can reflect your personality. For example, are you an easy-going succulent parent, or a detail-oriented nurturer of orchids? A fan of romantic lilies and violets, or a social soul who loves the drama of a giant bird of paradise? It can be insightful to think about this the next time you’re drawn to a new plant purchase!
