Everyone Else Is Doing It!

So you & I should too! No I'm not talking about jumping off a bridge, I'm talking about the Sproost find your style quiz, I saw Katie over at Bower Power had taken it & now John & Sherry at This Young House have done it so I jumped on the bandwagon so to say.

I have to say I tend to agree with this quizzes' results more than others I've taken in the past. Here are my results:

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.

Your art and accessories speak directly to the activities that are found at the beach. Pieces of driftwood you found here, pictures or paintings of the amazing views there. Things that remind you of the coast - surf boards or fishing boats - are found throughout the house.(not so much!) The feeling of the seaside is both abstract and literal in the design of your space. The fabrics are natural, cottons and linens and are light in color and touch. Much of the furniture is wood or wood framed (the lighter the better, think driftwood!) and wicker, when done right, is a must.

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 though the space is filled with large white furniture, it somehow manages to feel both durable and casual.

**This pretty much describes the way I want my home to feel and the look I'm going for!**

I also got Nantucket style! :) And it completely works... except that we're more river style than the ocean right now :)
