I must say that I do have a soft spot for classic decoration and design. Needless to say that I am drawn to it and I find it a peaceful style to live with if not too formally executed.

If you too have a bit of a love affair you may find this useful. Use this combination of colours and finishing styles to create something similar of your own.
