I used to love everything French Country. Then, a few years ago, I went to a party, and as soon as I entered the house I felt as if I had finally found my true style. The decor was very sophisticated, neutral with a few punches of color, streamlined. No clutter to be found anywhere, no trinkets. I have since determined that the style is transitional, which in my mind has aspects of traditional and aspects of contemporary. I tend to like transitional that leans a little more towards traditional, not so spare and hard edged, but with classic shapes and clean lines.
