I live in a turn of the century home (built around 1910) and i try to merge modern in with the Victorian trim, original diagonal wood floors and lots of rich chocolate and taupe walls with bright white trim. I'm a sucker for certain modern style but also love the ornate details to a Victorian home. My master suite is still a work in progress with design and structure and right now the yard is taking up a lot of my attention. I've gotten quite a green thumb this year. Now i'm trying to come up with design for the backyard to work around the flagstone rock waterfall my husband just built from the old flagstones next to our house. I want it to be something worth entertaining people at a cookout. Our style says a lot about our personality! What about you all? Green shag carpet? Or totally modern? 1970's paneling? Total Bachelor?
