I have always been drawn to traditional style home interiors. In fact, because our place has traditional ‘bones’, I embraced the whole look and enhanced it further when we renovated before we moved in, six years ago. However, I don’t go for the formal traditional. As much as I can, I shy away from those stuffy decors and furniture pieces as I still want an air of casual sophistication in spite of the look being traditional.
Our living areas, are no doubt traditional, while my kitchen is country-traditional. The look is carried over all throughout. It’s been six years, and while I’m itching to re-decorate, splurging to do so, may not be the best course of action granting our impending plans.
Nowadays, my penchant towards contemporary sofas is really developing. Should I give in to my heart’s desire, having contemporary furniture would mean that a bigger interior makeover is in the offing. This will ensure that everything is within the new interior style chosen. I don’t know if I would like to embrace the shabby chic look. To me, it takes a lot of getting used to, to want that style.
How about you, what style do you prefer?
