You love clean-lined furniture upholstered in traditional fabrics like velvet, woven polyester, and gabardine—but you crave said furniture painted in brighter colors and covered with of-the-moment patterns instead of the dark stain of yesteryear.

Your style vocab consists of two words: Classic and timeless—but you cringe at the thought of your style being called “granny.” You relish the thought of shaking up the traditional construct with slightly mismatched, larger-scale furniture, a casually unified color scheme (think: different shades of green), light, tailored window treatments, and modern touches like Lucite trays to corral everyday items.

Your decorating buzzwords:  Chandeliers, chinoiserie, chintz, wingback chairs, modern lighting, stylized floral patterns, crown and panel molding, heirloom Oriental rugs, colorful velvets, supple leather, sconces, black and white, and contemporary artwork.
