Remove the clutter. This is not only a key element of proper traditional interior design but the first element of Feng Shui. Closed door cabinets, ottomans with hidden storage and baskets on the bookshelf help provide a space for all your books, papers and accessories when not in use.

Let the accessories provide the color. A traditional home has a soothing neutral palate. Eggshell and sand are wonderful base colors. Add color in a perfectly upholstered chair with a floral pattern, art, or accent pillows. Not only will you be able to change the colors with the season, but as the years go by and as your style grows.

Symmetry keeps the home balanced. A couch will be placed opposite two chairs. If there is a bedside table on one side, there will be a bedside table on the other. Symmetry gives a sense of comfort.
