It's official. I'm 'Cozy Casual'.
You see, a few months back, I took a fun quiz in the March issue of Real Simple. (I cannot resist those magazine quizzes!) It was super quick with one page full of different objects -- a Bertoia chair, a potted orchid, a stack of leather-bound books, a cashmere throw to name a few -- and all I had to do was mark those that I was drawn to. No thinking, just quick picks. There were probably about 30 or so items, and each was marked with either an A, B, C, or D. After making my picks, I tallied the letters. And my majority was C: Cozy Casual.
Cozy Casual is... Warm. It's traditional. It's weathered. Laid-back farmhouse style. "Just about any movie by Nancy Meyers." Oh yes. That's me. Most definitely.
Herewith, a few interiors that I think have that Cozy Casual feel...
(1. My Home Ideas)
(2. Design Sponge)
(3. Country Living)
(4. NY Times Style Magazine)
Put 'em all together, do a bit of editing, and together they'd make a fine home, no?
Play along with me! I'd love to know what your style is.
