And now for the analysis.

Did you choose mostly As?
The essential you is tailor-made for European Opulence. A traditional, comfortable-yet-formal home is more to your taste than any other signature. Your heart is caught in the look of the fabulous past.

Did you choose mostly Bs?
You're a child of the future, an admirer of modern technology; Classic Contemporary is your sleek, svelte signature.

Did you choose mostly Cs?
Serenely magnificent Oriental Grace is the signature that is most exciting for you. You could go, as well, for a Rich-Mix...any of the other signatures accented heavily with Chinese luxury or Japanese simplicity.

Did you choose mostly Ds?
I would think that American Pedigree would please you enormously. You admire the classicism of our heritage, the integrity of dark, deep woods, the comfort of a deep wing chair.

Did you choose mostly Es?
Country Charm is your kind of posh. The charm of the hearth, the hunt, and naive art make you smile. The richness of the sea or the sun-bleached character of the Southwest are your cup of tea.

Did your choices/answers add up as you expected? Did you learn anything new about yourself and your decorating style? What is your style? :-)

What Kind of Seductress Are You?

Okay, now this is just for fun so don't read anything into it! Having said that (as a 40 year old mother of three).......................

The thrill of seduction can often lie in the chase, with the fascinating power plays, looks, gestures and words that are the hallmark of the confident seductress. Are your techniques honed to perfection? What kind of seductress are you?


I'm the ‘quiet storm’ of seduction –someone who plays the long game but, eventually, attracts the sort of man who appreciates my subtle approach. It takes that special guy to bring out the discreet, fun, lively, and unforgettable qualities in me.

Try a fun quiz and find out what kind of seductress you are.

Need to enhance your seduction strategy? Try these TIPS (don't worry - they aren't my tips so they may actually be effective):
  • His body signals are far better indicators of how he feels about you than anything he may actually say verbally. Look for small gestures such as touching your arm to tell you a lot about how he feels about you.
  • Be funny and relaxed in your flirting – it's a way of keeping him interested. Men are simple creatures, often with surprisingly fragile egos who need constant reassurance that you are definitely into them.
  • Being somewhere social with plenty of people around gives you far more scope for conversation. If it’s a terrible party, why not use that as your opening line, provided that the chap in question isn’t the host, of course…
  • The sweet and innocent approach may appeal to some men, but a confident style can also be fun, and work wonders. Try some mild puncturing of his ego. If he’s confident enough to receive a little teasing then he should be intrigued by your cheeky tactics. Making fun of his tie is fine, for example, but asking him when he first started losing his hair is unlikely to move things forward!

Oh, NOW they tell me!
