What's Your Style?


According to the test on Sproost.com, I am 100% "French Eclectic," and I totally agree!  Though I've tried out other styles with accessories, etc. in my home, I really love the elements of French decor.  This book, French Style At Home, has totally captivated my heart.  Within its pages, I've found me.  All that I adore.  My design sensibilities.  Finally figured out. 
These are some of the elements that define this style for me:

That picture of the chandalier (that's spelled wrong..) from underneath is really cool! I'm not big on the French style for my home but I still think it's pretty. :)

Cute blog!
