Matching your upholstered piece(s) to wallpapered or upholstered walls is an old-school designer trick that honestly takes a designer with some guts now-a-days to pull off.  I always say you’re going to tire of a “safe” room a lot faster than putting in pieces, colors, and patterns that you LOVE.

This does not have to be a stuffy look – I love the way Heather Hilliard took a “traditional” idea and make it clean and contemporary.



Aerin Lauder is the perfect example of a “fresh” traditionalist.
