What Does Your Starbucks Drink Say About Your Apartment Style?

This story was originally published on Lonny.

The time has arrived. Pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg — all those flavors you've been missing are back in town to take their rightful place in your morning mug. What better place to get with the flavored-coffee-drink trend than at the grandaddy of them all — Starbucks? With an array of all-time favorites (cough, Pumpkin Spice Latte, cough) and several new kids on the block, we go beyond the espresso bar to see what your drink of choice says about your style of home decor.

Salted Caramel Mocha
You're more of a traditional design personality, with a few unexpectedly masculine touches here and there. A neutral palette is more your speed. Pops of fall color, such as warm reds and golden hues, mingle on staples like a Chesterfield sofa. The perfect spot to enjoy your drink? In a modern cabin such as these, sprawled on a bearskin rug next to a roaring fire.

Pumpkin Spice Latte
Just call yourself the modern-day Sex in the City gal. You've got a yen for plush, unapologetically feminine design — and your walk-in closet skills are totally on point. With style gurus that range from Mary McDonald to up-and-comer Sasha Bikoff, you're all about the art of seduction. We're sure to find a mirrored vanity table somewhere in your digs.

Caramel Apple Spice
Underneath your buttoned-up exterior, you're a rebel at heart. Sweet, yet subversive, you are drawn to upholstered pieces in soft colors and classic shapes — then, you'll throw a decor game-changer into the mix. Uptown-downtown is where it's at, just like the gals at Lonny fave J+G Design. Case in point? A sexy acrylic coffee table that ups the design ante in your ultra-sophisticated home.

Tazo Chai Tea Latte
Just like this drink, your design sensibility spans several influences: a little bit boho with a tinge of New Age, but with an undeniable global-contemporary flair. You love natural materials such as bamboo and rattan, and your textile game is strong. (Paging Kim Ficaro for inspiration.) Your ultimate status symbol? An intricately woven tapestry from your all-time favorite vacation spot halfway around the world.
