ACHIEVING A NATURALLY SOPHISTICATED LOOK
The latest decor trend doing the rounds is ‘sophisticated casual’. It has a sense of subdued luxury, like a woman who spends hours getting that ‘out of bed look’, it is a carefully thought out composition of elements from nature as well as man made, craftsman quality elements. This look may seem easy to put together, but it really does require some thought and planning so that it does not look like a mishmash from a garage sale. Keep it simple and monochromatic to keep the look from becoming kitschy.
