For Old World fabrics, pick rich colors, fewer flowers and more stripes. If you have to use flowers, consider sunflowers but not roses, which are too delicate for the Old World motif. Look for texture. Anything that is knubby woven, or a chenille, works well on seat covers.

“Old World style, to me, means bringing in classical architectural elements or styling,” says Ann M. Morris, a Certified Master Kitchen and Bath Designer based out of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Reflecting antiquities, she says the design style resembles Greek, Roman and Old English elements on a grand scale. You might think of what you would see in a stone castle.

Common architectural elements in the kitchen that also bring the old into the new include the use of arches and columns around windows, the sink or stove area, and also at the doorways. If your home already has these elements, it’s a good bet an Old World design would work well in the space.
