I wrote an article not so long ago talking about how my favorite genre of residence is the old-world estate style.
Since I’m an interior designer, I easily shouldn’t have put it out there that my “ideal” genre is the old-world estate residence style, however it is true. I absolutely enjoy the wonderful earthy tones, archways, clay tiles as well as custom leather furniture that the old-world estate genre offers (as I mentioned in my previous article). For me, as a woman from a massive Italian family, the old-world estate is the glamorous homestyle of “the aged country”. If you just so happen to be somebody who is hoping to flip your residence or redecorate in the old-world estate aesthetic, be warned. This genre does not actually work in a contemporary residence. The old-world estate genre is a single one of the few residential styles that easily requires the residence’s architecture to match. There’s nothing worse than seeing a modern, cape cod genre residence with an old-world estate interior. You do not want to do that at all. But, if your residence has the bones for an old-world estate style, by all means make sure to have at least 2 key factors. The first thing you need is a clay roof. If you’re not willing to shell out the extra currency for the crucial clay tiles, then just stick with the rustic meets transitional genre (this will accomplish the Tuscan beauty aesthetic separate from that clay roof tile requirement). If you are willing to go for the clay tile, be sure that your custom furniture matches the residence. You will want custom leather sofas, custom leather chairs as well as you’ll want the leather to be a matching custom furniture set. I truly hope this has helped you!
