Replace the William Morris prints with more French silk as wall hangings - William Morris, remember, was someone who championed the Aesthetic Movement, a reaction against the historicist revival styles (Baroque Revival, Rococo Revival) - having his wallpaper in a room with silk damask drapes and Boulle bas-buffets would be a clash of styles. If you wanted to lighten the look a bit, replace the Boulle with Loius XVI (or even Louis XV) - matching low commodes at either side of the mantelpiece is always a good look (extra style points if there are chinoiserie panels inset into the furniture, inside the ormolu frames).

Fair enough gents. IRL that stripe knocks me out! Good thing about the FCs is how they make you look at your wardrobe? No real loud ties here!

Shugz, should have guessed a Duchamp would lead the way nod[1].gif

One might want to try something like this for the floor and for a desk.....

I had to put it in a separate thread in the interests of time since I couldn't figure out how to add a poll into the thread. I have since figured it out :)
