The Softer Side of Old World Design . . .

When you think Old World what comes to mind?  Heavy ornate furnishings with heavy quilts and tapestries.  Colors of golds, greens, maroons and browns.

While this may be true in some cases, as with any design style, with just a small tweak or adjustment you can turn heavy and ornate into something just a little softer.

I have always loved the mystical feeling that a set of stone steps implies . . .

Here soft colored throw pillows and this antique bed give way to a more softer Old World feel.

A softer Old World meets contemporary

Old World in the kitchen
And who can resist Old World in the garden?

Old World/Shabby Chic/Modern

Are you
Traditional Old World . . .or do you prefer a softer Old World?

Love to hear what you have to say.
