When I recently mentioned to a friend that I love colonial decorating she declares well, you can't decorate primitives and colonial!! They don't mix that muslin and fabric things you like!I disgress. It is my house. I will decorate it to MY taste. I like a mixture. Old buckets and lanters. Pewter and coverlets. The fun of decoarting is choosing your own style and making it your own. I change a lot and I sell a lot as I get tired of things. This is why it is so much fun.I love getting ideals from others as well. I really enjoy the different decorating tips from others. So hey don't say you can't mix prims and colonial's.Of course you can.
