Choose a herringbone-patterned floor for an orderly vibe

When it comes to selecting the perfect print or pattern for your home, you are spoilt for choice. Stripes, herringbone, Aztec… how do you decide which one represents you best? Lucky for you, we have identified 4 types of prints and matched them to the various MBTI personality types!

1. The neat, OCD-friendly patterns for the Analysts (INTJ, INTP, ENTJ, ENTP)

What do herringbone and geometric patterns have in common? They all consist of neatly arranged shapes that repeat throughout. The wonderful thing about minimalist patterns is that they never go out of style. What you see is what you get – which is very characteristic of the Analysts. They are straightforward, decisive people, who systematically follow a clear set of logical standards.

2. Nature prints for the Diplomats (INFJ, INFP, ENFJ, ENFP)

Living up to their name, the Diplomats are truly empathetic and cooperative people. Prints featuring natural elements like flowers and leaves match their personality well. Nothing embodies their need for harmony better than nature, right? Floral patterns can get out of hand pretty easily, so you might want to treat it as a centrepiece, and keep everything else simple.

3. Conservative patterns for the Sentinels (ISTJ, ISFJ, ESTJ, ESFJ)

Sentinels are sticklers for rules; traditional and meticulous. When it comes to selecting patterns, they prefer making safe, predictable choices. Like the Analysts, they are huge fans of repeated patterns as it appeals to their need for order – think stripes and brick wall patterns. But this does not imply boring! There are so many ways you can work the pattern to keep things interesting.

Classic whites and earthy browns are likely to be the preferred choices for Sentinels

4. One-of-a-kind patterns for the Explorers (ISTP, ISFP, ESTP, ESFP)

The Explorers are known for their spontaneity and ability to think on their feet. Thus, patterns that appear random but cohesive represent their personality well. Just like how the Explorers dislike being boxed in, abstract patterns defy convention with the use of bright colours and varying textures.
