I normally despise categorizing what I like into one "label" because in a way I feel like that would limit my ability to change my mind a thousand times an hour like I so often do. But just the same, I took this quiz and the results declared me 75% Nantucket and 25% Cottage.
And you know what? I think they're right.
When I look at pictures I don't think "oh I like this" or "oh I don't like this." Instead, I have kind of an inner gut reaction and I feel that one is better than the other. Do you suppose this makes me an emotional person rather than a logical one?
I think Kyle would say "Most definitely yes."
He is smart like that.
So this is what Sproost has to say about Nantucket Style:
Oh how you love the beach! Who doesn't, right? And so your dream home is either perched in your favorite beach town, or you've brought that favorite beach town into your house.
And since your true inspiration is the sea, the colors and textures in your home are the same that you would find at your favorite beach: white, light beiges and grays of the sand and driftwood, a variety of blues for the ocean and sky, and greens and vibrant blues of the sea glass... but the key is white! Your space should feel light and airy and give off the mood one has when at the beach: laid back!
Your furniture is comfortable and the layout is cozy. The more it reminds you of actually sitting on the warm sand the better! And what do you do at the beach? Hang out with family and friends - and your home is just an extension of this play place.
And for my 25% worth of Cottage Chic Style:Cottage Chic
Who says that cottages can't be modern and chic? Who says that they have to be floral and cheesy? Not you! You love old and new alike, and love to highlight them all to expose the uniqueness of each.
Your true inspiration (whether you know it or not) is the sea... the colors found at your favorite beach: white and light beige of the sand, a variety of blues for the ocean and sky, and greens and pale grays of the sea glass... but the key is white! Your space should feel light and airy and give off the mood one has when at the beach: laid back!
The furniture is comfortable and the layout is cozy. The more it encourages intimate gatherings the better! The color throughout is light and airy - and though you love to accessorize with fun colors (the sky's the limit with a white background), the main color seen and felt throughout the house is white or very light versions of colors so that they feel almost white.
So pretty much I love the beach.
I love blue.
I love white.
I love vintage.
I love modern.
I love comfortable.
I love quizzes.
And I would love a Nantucket cottage beach house, please. After all my birthday is coming up in a few months, ya know.
