The interior design of your home should reflect the character of it’s 'exterior design'. The interior of a French, English or Italian styled home should have period style moldings and other decorative interior design details that complement the homes façade. Proportions of interior arches, ceiling treatments, stairways, paneling, etc. should be carefully designed to maintain its architectural stylistic integrity. It is ok to mix the new with the old. European interiors remain comfortable, gracious and timeless. Upholstered furnishings and case goods are either authentic or reproduction period pieces. Lines are classic with rich, carved details. Colors can be soft and luminous or rich and warm. Beautiful crown molding and trim abound. Window coverings remain classic by design. Accessories and furnishings are unique to the period that they represent.
