Sproost.com... LOVE it!

Ok, so on one of my days of mindless internet searching (i have WAAAYY to much time on my hands some days!! ha!), I came across the coolest website! It is sproost.com. It really is an interior design website.. but i love the quiz on the homepage! It shows you a series of pictures of different rooms in a house and you rate them... hate it, love it, it's ok.. etc. When you're finished it breaks down what type of style you like the best! And i mean REALLY breaks it down... like with percentages! Then it'll tell you all about that particular style and show you pics of room you would possibly like. Let me tell you... i think they pegged me right on! It'll then let you scroll through home accents and make a "room" of your own and you can add everything that you like. It's sort of like creating a "wish list" for your house! I LLOOOOVVVEEE it! Chris HHHAAAATTTEESSS it! haha! Here's what Sproost said about me...



Your personal style is a mix of 3 specific styles:
75%
Nantucket Style
13%
Cottage Chic
12%
Classic





Nantucket Style
Oh how you love the beach! Who doesn't, right? And so your dream home is either perched in your favorite beach town, or you've brought that favorite beach town into your house.
Your art and accessories speak directly to the activities that are found at the beach. Pieces of driftwood you found here, pictures or paintings of the amazing views there. Things that remind you of the coast - surf boards or fishing boats - are found throughout the house. The feeling of the seaside is both abstract and literal in the design of your space. The fabrics are natural, cottons and linens and are light in color and touch. Much of the furniture is wood or wood framed (the lighter the better, think driftwood!) and wicker, when done right, is a must.
And since your true inspiration is the sea, the colors and textures in your home are the same that you would find at your favorite beach: white, light beiges and grays of the sand and driftwood, a variety of blues for the ocean and sky, and greens and vibrant blues of the sea glass� but the key is white! Your space should feel light and airy and give off the mood one has when at the beach: laid back!
Your furniture is comfortable and the layout is cozy. The more it reminds you of actually sitting on the warm sand, the better! And what do you do at the beach? Hang out with family and friends - and your home is just an extension of this play place. And though the space is filled with large white furniture, it somehow manages to feel both durable and casual


Although my rooms aren't focused on the beach... there's definitely alot of wicker, linen and natural colors! And i happen to think it's pretty darn cozy! :) (LOVE white furniture too!!) Here's pictures of my house (and NO it's never this clean!)... what do you think?! Were they right??


*new yellow linen drapes coming soon!!! i can't wait!! :)*



*please ignore the hall rug pushed all the way to the front door.... for some unknown reason a certain 1.5 yr old likes to run and slide on it as though it's home plate!!!*



*and... edit out the awful dining chairs!! i bought the table and bench but haven't decided which chairs i want yet! well, really i know... i want a few leather ones and a few sea grass ones (like the big ottoman)... but haven't convinced chris to splurge for those just yet! ha! :) So, we're using the chairs from our old kitchen table set! Hey, it works for now!*


So.. go check out the website!! Design a room and redecorate! :) There's still TONS i want to do to our house... more painting, more projects... maybe some white bead board somewhere?! Sites like these give me soo many ideas (exactly why my husband hates them! ha!)! HAVE FUN!!
