Interior decorating for my INTP nerd brain! (MBTI)

Interior decorating for INTP MBTI nerds

My interior decorating style is nerdy. It’s based on maths, formulas, and a ‘right’ answer. I’m an INTP.

One of my lovely friends discovered this blog post about decorating styles of the different Myers Briggs types, and now I can pinpoint my INTP interior decorating style perfectly!

Nerds, rejoice!

Here’s my decorating profile, as an INTP.

Summary of my INTP interior decorating style:

  • Boy, do I love research! Endless hours researching options, Pinterest, Youtube, Instagram, theory, experts…I can’t get enough.


  • I make decisions alone. It’s not because I don’t care, it’s because my brain has already synthesised hours, days, weeks (years!) of research to make a decision. Sorry, no room for a second opinion.
  • I create an escape. It’s not enough for a room to have a curated collection of furniture. I need more. I need a retreat. A place that I walk into and feel the space and the comfort. That’s my style.


All of this screams ME. But no person is ‘complete’.

Things I need to remind myself to have a fuller decorating experience and result:

  • Don’t neglect the personal touchy-feely stuff. Family pictures, mementos, and things that stir my emotions. Since reading this about myself, I’ve incorporated more of these items into my decorating.

  • Don’t second guess myself. I second guess myself in all areas of my life and just need to trust my instincts, dammit! (I feel like this is a life lesson I’ll always be ‘learning’ ;)). Trust that the patterned fabric I chose for my new study room sofa is the right choice against my striped red and ‘Toasted Almond’ study wall. I followed through on that gut-feel and I was right. It’s PERFECT.

Whenever someone or something understands you, I think it’s natural to feel like ‘everything is going to be OK’ and a little more mindful. Reading this MBTI decorating profile had made me feel like I understand myself a little better. Yay to self-discovery.

Thanks Mrs Fancee blog!
