Open House: Your Parents' Style

Open House: Your Parents' Style

This is a snapshot of my mother's living room, filled with antiques and plenty of outdated '80s/'90s textiles. Were she to redecorate today, I can guarantee she'd opt for a loose, more livable space. But, her taste remains colorful, traditional, and sophisticated. While I wouldn't mind winding up with a few of the pieces in this room (Louis XV chairs, secretary desk, mirror, maybe the coffee table), my style is certainly a departure from hers, and I might even consider painting some of the furniture. I prefer cleaner lines and fewer colors — more modern in general.
How about you? How does your style compare to that of your parents? Has their décor style changed through the years? Do they adapt to trends? Would you like to inherit any of their furniture? Tell me by commenting below!
