I am new to ivillage in general, but I see this board is new, and hopefully my decorating dilemma can be solved. I am recently married, and my husband and I have been living together for two years now, and while we have all the furniture we need, we have no pictures, decor, drapes or direction. All our furniture is mission style- think Frank l. Wright, or what is sometimes called Arts& Crafts ( as in Sears Roebuck post-WWII homes) and we have a ranch home. I am afraid to end up having the house be totally old. I'm thinking lighter colored drapes to offset the darker furniture and wood, and hammered silver trays, leather ottomans, and then I get lost.
ANYone have any suggestions? I like french country, some modern pieces, and DH just doesn't want cabbage roses all over the house, otherwise he leaves it to me.
I feel desperate, I want to make our home warm and welcoming, but how do I blend styles together?
