Classic furnishings and design accents complement eye and space.  We are big fans of  TCM’s 31 Days of Oscar,  and being the accent chair set design reviewer that I am, I was in my height of glory watching Giant last week. The scenic wallpaper in the foyer of the home of Leslie’s (Elizabeth Taylor) parent’s home is the star of the scene, embodying the design features of Classic Revival style homes.  (Try as I may I could not find a photo of the scene that does my point justice).  Granted, some patterns and images correlate with the more formal aspect of traditional style, but not in all cases.  The Etched Arcadia Mural  in Grey Motif from Anthropologie typifies what I have come to know; understated is on par with elegance when contrast is the intended design element.

I just got off the phone with Mr. and Mrs. Canadian snowbird who are moving into a new house this spring.  Spring things to come furnishings, colors, fixtures and finery is the current topic of source conversation and conversion (Mom, is the price U.S. or Canadian?).  I suggested a Shop the Sidebar session for decor inspiration.

It is everywhere.
