So how do this years fall forecast colors work with today's traditional home??
According to about.com.....
•Traditional decorating is calm, orderly, and predictable. There is nothing wild or chaotic in a traditional room.
•Furnishings are classic and might feel outdated. Nothing is a surprise. Pieces match and are consistent.
•Furniture and accessories are place in pairs and centered in the room. There is nothing out of place or of a different style. Everything has the look that it goes together.
•Traditional rooms are not ostentations but rather somewhat casual. Furniture pieces are often reproductions. Modern, eclectic pieces have no room in a traditional space.
•Traditional style homes feel comfortable for any age group. It's a familiar look that you'd see in magazines or furniture show rooms. A traditional room is not a place to showcase a piece of modern art or stainless steel furniture.
So, that means my current love of Cottage Decorating and all things mis-matched doesn't quite fit into the traditional style of decorating in ANY way. BUT the good news is, I don't have a piece of stainless steel furniture anywhere....
