How do you define your style? I’ve always said, “Classic Cottage with a side of Farmhouse Fresh”, but just for fun, I took this Design Style Quiz over at the HomeGoods website yesterday and my result was “New Country” with a touch of “Set Sail”.
Here’s how the site described each part of my style:
‘New Country’ understands the value of slowing down, enjoying the sunsets, bringing the outside in, and feeling a real sense of relaxation in her space. She is laid back, but her style is still intentional and beautiful in its rustic elegance. ‘New Country’ homes have a very natural ease, but they’re not their grandmothers’ old-fashioned country homes. Warm, nature-inspired hues blend with brighter, contemporary elements for an updated country look.
‘Set Sail’ is as laid back as a warm breeze off the ocean. She’s inspired by sun-washed blues, soft, sandy whites, nostalgic, nautical stripes, and coastal elements. She saturates her home—and thus, those around her—with a sense of calm so palpable you’re almost sitting dockside when you visit her. Beginning with beach-bleached, comfy chairs and sofas, ‘Set Sail’ takes off with natural elements, like a jute rug or woven baskets. Fresh greens, blues, white, and pops of yellow make a refreshing palette.
I feel like those descriptions pretty much hit the nail on the head for me!
Several of our Lettered Cottage Community members took the quiz and felt like their styles were very accurately described too, so I thought I’d link to the quiz here today in case you wanted to check it out as well. It’s kind of fun to see what pops up!
Anywhoobs, I’ll be back tomorrow with another Let’s Go! video that I shared on Instagram a while back but never had a chance to edit and upload here to the blog. I’m thinking I *may* go to an antique store for this week’s Lexcursion…but we’ll see how I feel when that day rolls around. I’m open to suggestions if you feel like leaving one! XO
