Sophisticated Folk?

This afternoon was spent doing one of my favorite project-related tasks: sourcing fabric at the design center.  I didn't have a firm idea of the color direction but I knew I wanted something a little folksy but sophisticated. 

Is "Sophisticated Folk" a style?  If not, I'm making it one!

Think Early-American antiques with linens, very tailored slipcovers, maybe some botanicals, glazed pottery and definitely some rustic wood.  A little dash of something woven would be quite nice I think.  Some burlap wouldn't hurt.

How incredible is that chandelier?  Perfection.

To cozy it up a bit, I'd layer in more fabrics and pattern than these next two rooms currently have, but I absolutely love the clean lines of the upholstered pieces next to those rustic woods.

I think this Kravet fabric would fit right in with my Sophisticated Folk:

Oh yeah, it's all coming together now!

How do you like Sophisticated Folk?  I promise there will no tole painting allowed!

Remember - I'm currently accepting new design clients! If you'd like some help giving style and comfort to your home, email me.  I'd love to chat!
