OBVISOUS TRENDS: Dark woods, white/cream/neutral fabrics with a French Eclectic/Nantucket Chic vibe and a Hollywood Regency twist.
I love the classic styles. I would rather buy a old piece of furniture and refinish with it in with a glossy white paint than buy something new and without character. But there are modern elements that rock-my-socks, too ;)
George is right on track with my taste but he likes Asian elements and anything with water! He's a sucker for fountains, ponds, koy fish and a touch of straight lines.
We strive for the clean-crisp formal look that is balanced with coziness and comfort. I have to admit, it's something I struggle to get just right but I am hoping I will have less trial-and-error decorating once the major piece fall into place.
Later this week, I will give you all a video tour of our city chateau but, in the meantime, what is your decorating style? Are you a slight contradiction of decor?
