Must buy! Why? Simply because it was so inciteful...

Not only was the "quiz" extremely easy to take, fun to read and quite inciteful but the illustrations, the content and presentation of this book was absolutely an A+ for me. It doesn't matter what level of "expertise" you categorize yourself in with respect to interior design...this book touches everyone at every level. It's also a great gift idea!

The Domain Book of Intuitive Design

My wife and I have eclectic tatses. Our home consists of a 300+ cookie jar collection all the way through to antique tables, beds and chairs. We have spent many years collecting/decorating, and are constantly seeking opportunities to bridge the gap between our differing design points of view. It is important to us both, that as we personalize each room, and balance is achieved to mesh our combined tastes. Since we entertain frequently, our environment is very important, as we seek to provide warmth and coziness, while at the same time, provoke thoughts of curiosity and of course, smiles. We achieve this through our art, furnishings and use of space, and are actively searching for additions to furnish. The Intuitive Book of Home Design helped us to focus on identifying our unique personalities to ensure that we achieve balance. The test was particularly revealing, not to mention fun. We did find ourselves somewhat on the edge of more then one type, which might explain how the mix of my wife's taste and style, while different then mine, can work well as we developed a greater understanding and appreciation for our unique points of view through our reading.

This Rocks... How to find Your Inner Design Voice!

I have never really given much thought to my design instincts until taking "The Domain Quiz". I was surprised by my results, because as I explored the Domain house tour my archetypal personality ("visionary/idealist") didn't match my real life design preferences. Brainstorm! I asked my wife to take "The Quiz" (she's an "adventurer/artisan") and compared her answers to mine. We had a spirited discussion about design preferences, and taste. My wife makes 90% of our home design decisions (I do things like pick out the TV and CD player), but our home reflects both of us and I benefit from the artistic, "no rules" atmosphere of our home. (For example, if it was up to me, we'd have all white walls and sports memorabilia everywhere. Plus I have my eye on this great baseball glove shaped couch in a local furniture store. See what I mean?) Exploring this subject was great fun. It also gave me greater insight into why my wife approaches home design (and life) as she does. A great read and learning experience. Highly recommended.Marshall Goldberg

Great Fun & Pictures -- A book to share with everyone!

I bought 3 copies as holiday gifts for 3 very different people -- my mother, my husband, and my sister, who is an artist. My mother was thrilled I would give her a book on design and it has opened a new line of communications between us. We disucss our results of the quiz(and now she understands we can have different taste and both are ok). She loved going through the book and finding pieces that she owned that Ms. George had pictured in her book. (She was particularly pleased that she had never thrown out her 1940's coffeepot which is displayed in one of the book's beautiful room collages)My husband said this was one of the few books on home decorating that was written with both men and women in mind. He keeps it on his desk next to his Riverside Shakespare and biography of Frank Lloyd Wright. We had fun taking the quiz together and found that, not to our surpise, we think a great deal alike. Also the quiz caused us to think about our lifestyle now and in the future in ways we had not addressed before. Overal this was a super gift to my family and myself, because it appealed to everyone on so many different levels. The pictures stimulate new ideas and they are beautifully laid out so you can simulate a whole room, corner, or get an idea for an artifact. The quiz acts as a way to pull togehter all your tastes and interests in a way that is lighthearted and fun. Ms. Georege takes an intimidating topic and makes it accessible to everyone.Watch out all brides-to-be and new home owning friends this is the gift I'll be giving!

Learn about yourself!

What a great idea! I have learned a lot. Instead of just looking at photos to see if I like them, I now have a strong sense of what my "decorating personality style" is. Since decorating has been a bit intimidating for me, this book gave me a new sense of confidence about what to do in my home.I actually can see why I really like some things and don't like others. The book is fun, creative, well written and has great photos. Thanks for introducing the design personality concept! I highly recommend this book!
