So…I was a little surprised to find that when I took a

“what architectural style are YOU” quiz….

That indeed I was a…

You're a lively Spanish Colonial!

Like a Spanish Colonial home, you are warm with an eye toward the romance of living. While you are traditional and can be a little introverted, you are also enlivened with impulsive flairs of color that amuse and energize your friends and family. Spanish Colonial homes take a simple construction style and add artistic details like painted tiles, iron fixtures, and huge carved doors denoting, like you, a love of art and individuality. Your combination of down-to-earth fun and elegance puts everyone at ease.

Go figure.

I guess I am right where I am supposed to be

right now.

Now YOU go and take the quiz….here

dare ya.

You're edgy and Contemporary!Minimal, uncluttered, and thoughtful, you enjoy reflecting on life -- when you take a break from catching the latest vlogs. Quiet spaces are important to you, as are the foods you eat, and the thoughts you send out into the world. Details matter. Like Contemporary architecture, you defy tradition to redefine comfort, and people trust you because of this quiet confidence

this is me!!!

Well, what do you know?
I'm a lively Spanish Colonial.
Who comes up with a quiz like this anyway? It's bang on though, because I do love a lot of Spanish and Mediterranean structures and decor.

Loving the Spanish villa style home. We just got back from my mom's villa in Ecuador and I was shocked at how mig the bouganvillia plant grew...makes the white of the exterior that much more beautiful.

I would never have guessed that I'd be a Spanish Colonial. I thought I was Mid-Century Modern, Minimal or Contemporary.

Knock me over...I am a lively Spanish colonial! Well...that makes sense. I love all the colors and warmth...and I even have a Spanish background. And there was this beautiful Spanish colonial on the beach in Vero that I really wanted to buy...several years ago.

I'm knee deep in February on this side of the pond. Looking at your pictures made me happy and homesick all at the same time! We'll be back on the peninsula in April and I can't wait! Have a happy week:)

Cobalt Violet said...

Me too! Lively Spanish Colonial. I'm not surprised. Growing up in California there are so many old Spanish Style buildings and I've said for years if I buy a place ... I want an old Spanish Style house!

LOVE the images!

... the home of your first photo of the spa. So lovely over there. :)
