What Style are you?

Thanks to Heather Whittaker at Whittakerwoman.com, I found this cool site where you take a quiz to find out your home decor style.


I have always said my dream home is beach front. I don't actually like to be ON the beach but I love sitting on a porch, reading a book looking AT the beach. But I do also like some very classic elements, country kinda. So, other then all the white love they describe me having (I like lots of color, more Key West beach front then Destin Florida beach front)they pretty much nailed it.

Your personal style is a mix of 3 specific styles:

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. 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.

I was 100% Nantucket. ...probably why I live in coastal Maine! :-)

I took it again, but backwards where the ones I liked I said I hated and the ones I hated I said I liked, and got: 50 contemporary, 25 mountain lodge, and 25 traditional Asian. so I guess I am the opposite of those!

This was fun!
I just took it (waiting for the washer to finish) and my results were:
33% Wine Country Style
33% Rustic Revival
34% Nantucket

Hmmm... I would have to agree with all of those!
My home is a mix of Wine Country and Rustic Revival, but I have ALWAYS loved the look of Nantucket.
Very cool quiz!

I'm 50% Wine Country, 50% Mountain Lodge. I agree with these, but I like looking at the others. This was fun! Thank you.
Oh this is gorgeous. Put me in the mind of the beach house featured in the movie Something's Gotta Give.
