In this article, we investigate how people's lifestyles are affected by social mobility. The main questions are: to what extent is the consumption of both 'popular' and 'legitimate' culture shaped by the joint impact of one's status of origin and one's current status, and to what extent does the process of mobility lead to more heterogenous consumption patterns within status groups. The results show that, with respect to legitimate culture (reading literature, visiting museums and attending performing arts), the effect of mobility interacts with the level of education, resulting in increasing cultural heterogeneity among the higher educated. Mobility effects for popular culture (reading romantic fiction, watching soccer games and watching commercial television) are less clear-cut.
