Cracker Chic
 n.— «“Cracker Chic” is a new term now relating to a decorating style currently gaining popularity. It consists of very simple and smaller scaled antiques, bungalows and furniture mostly void of ornate carvings and fretwork. The house at Cross Creek is definitely a good example of “Cracker Chic.”» —“Author’s Florida home is beautifully intact” by Diana Fodero Post-Journal (Jamestown, New York) May 19, 2007.
