Rebecca and Gareth were a classic case of opposites attracting, but over the years they have learned to adapt to each other's lifestyles and tastes—and it actually turns out that they have a lot more in common than they realized at first glance. They are both influenced by their family traditions, and they both grew up spending summers at the cottages which inspired the design of their home. Rebecca and Gareth also share a love for the vastness of the Canadian landscape, especially the coasts, but perhaps their most apparent similarity is their natural tendency to gravitate towards a color palette of blue and white, albeit Gareth's is more nautical and Rebecca's is more French country.
