Bromstad has worked with DuPont to design a fun quiz that will determine which
one of seven distinct design personalities match a homeowner's style to help
in their quest to create personalized, inspiring kitchens and bathrooms using
DuPont™ Corian® and Zodiaq® surfaces.
"Homeowners typically have one chance to design their kitchens and bathrooms,
which are among the most used spaces in a home," said David Bromstad. "Our
design tools help to make it easier and more rewarding by introducing
homeowners to their design personality and giving them a color palette to work
After answering a few simple questions through a visual quiz, users are
introduced to one of seven design personalities that best resonates with their
style. Design personalities include:
oThe Collector: Every piece in her home tells a story. The Collector mixes
textures from found objects with more classic styles for a palette based
on rich browns and dark lichen. Light is brought in by sunshine yellow and
oThe Socialite: The Socialite knows confidence is her best accessory. She's
self-assured at home and at work – always leading by example. Lighter
grays and warm tones of sand are balanced by rich, jet black to create a
feeling of luxury and longevity.
oThe Multi-tasker: The Multi-Tasker approaches life at full force –
balancing and adjusting to the moment to meet it with exuberance. A
family-friendly palette that is fresh, realistic, modern and classic – and
infused with a much-needed jolt of coffee.
oThe Entertainer: With an eye for modern sophistication, the Entertainer is
comfortable no matter where he is – which is usually at the center of any
situation. Graphic red and black contrast for a high-end feel, but are
softened with warm taupe and golden yellow for a truly sophisticated
oThe Creator: The Creator loves anything quirky; what most people shy away
from, he embraces. Mixed media, textures and inspirations make the color
palette. From pairing water blues with coffee browns, this is
experimentation at its bravest.
oThe Naturalist: The Naturalist feels most at home in the great outdoors
and strives to bring a sense of well-being into her home. Soft buttery
browns complement light beige and cream tones while speckle textures
commonly found in stone and granite inspire solid surfaces.
oThe Traveler: The world is his inspiration. The Traveler mixes the best
objects found in his travels – things that have an international
significance to his life – to create a multi-cultural lifestyle. Anything
exotic and unique is his normal; pottery clay, cobalt and indigo his color
