In this new series on the KDR Blog, I offer a present-day take on The CLASSICS—the very latest interpretations of timeless design motifs, color schemes and furniture silhouettes re-imagined by a handful of our favorite home furnishing manufacturers.
The series reflects a personal interest in classic elements, because while I appreciate trends as they come and go, the enduring quality of classic patterns and pieces gives comfort and a strong foundation for new ideas. The pieces I’ve assembled below, in their crisp, watery hues offer this classic color combination in traditional florals, paisleys and porcelain as well as a suggested read from Missouri native and style icon, Carolyne Roehm.
I hope you’ll enjoy, and stay tuned for next month’s CLASSICS post—one that lovers of Greek key won’t want to miss.
