You're a Traditional Style Lover!

You calm soul, you! Your favorite style is all about symmetry and classic lines.
Matching sets make you swoon with happiness…if you were to be prone to swooning that is.

So, what the heck is Traditional style?

Traditional decorating is frequently associated with older generations, but can be adapted to suit younger families. Traditional decorating is calm, orderly, predictable and full of classic lines and understated details. Furniture may seem outdated and it is often in matching sets – like a complete dining room set or perfectly matching coffee table and end tables. Think wall sconces, tassel-trimmed full drapery, wing chairs, extensive moldings, highly polished dark cherry or mahogany wood. Fabrics include silk, velvet and damask. Accessories tend toward ornate gilded mirrors and artwork inspired by nature. Furniture layouts are quite formal and placed at right angles from each other. Keep it even and organized with Traditional decorating.
