Got Style? Part 3

Our last mini class will be on Coastal Styles.  If your taste is breezy and relaxed, you love natural fibers on upholstery as well as your floor coverings then…there is a good chance you are drawn to the Coast.  There are three main styles that fall under the Coastal heading….California, Gulf Coast and Atlantic Seaboard.

California Coastal…An eclectic blend of old world using some dark and some light finishes. Relaxed sophistication.

Gulf Coast…wicker and rattan. Vibrant colors such as greens, blues, yellows and oranges. Tropical influences; think modern flare with a touch of Art Deco.

Atlantic Seaboard…Nautical themes.  Use of shutters and louvers. Palettes of white, black, red, navy blue and yellow.

We hope you have enjoyed learning a little more about furniture styles. If you already had a style, it reinforced what you knew and if you didn’t have one, maybe you do now.  Of course we haven’t finished….we still have Eclectic, Oriental, Americana and Country to go. Stay tuned for a later date!
