I would say that most often I lean toward a traditional design style. Traditional design incorporates the use of multiple textures, patterns and colors. Growing up in the 60s, everything was overly simplified with white or mauve mica and black-andwhite walls. There was even a collection of wallpaper books called black-andwhite handprints. For me, ornate furniture has beauty and craftsmanship in itsdesigns. When combining florals and cane with crown molding and dark, rich woods, it makes an elegant statement. Versailles has history and what is old is always new again. To make a creative statement I feel that traditional design allows this process to occur.
