I took a quiz the other day at It was a little decorating style quiz. You rate 16 rooms at one of 5 choices from "love it" to "hate it" with "just ok" being in the middle. At the end it will tell you what decorating style you like.
Here is what style I am according to the quiz. I'd say it's right on for me. 60% Nantucket Style. And 40% Cottage Chic Style.
Here's an example of the Nantucket Style.
This is how that style is described. 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 though the space is filled with large white furniture, it somehow manages to feel both durable and casual.

Here is an example of Cottage Chic Style.

And here is how it is described. Who says that cottages can't be modern and chic? Who says that they have to be floral and cheesy? Not you!

You love the carefree spirit that the cottage interior inspires, but you are also serious about your appreciation for modern art and hip treasures. You love old and new alike, and love to highlight them all to expose the uniqueness of each. What better way to show off these treasures than with a light background?

Go take the quiz and tell me how you rated. :) And thanks in advance for sharing.
