|Paint with stencils instead of tile mosaic|
This style of decor can be executed without a huge investment, and without too many specialty items.
|This room might have been "Tuscan" last week, but it works well.|
|Gotta love this sofa! This room might have been "Victorian" last week, before the octagon tables arrived.|
If you sew, you can add wild colors and patterns to pillows, window treatments, or bedding. Fabulous "authentic" patterns are available in fabrics, bedspreads, and throws. Ikat and trellis patterns in fabrics, and the tile stores are filling up with those 1970's medallion patterns in ceramic tile already. This style goes against the western concept of "good taste", so let your daughters go as crazy with it as they please. They can't mess it up!
I predict that this will be the hot decorating trend over the next ten years, and then it will dive to dated and hated. Fifteen or twenty years from now, people will loathe my beloved octagon table, and call it "so 2010's". You won't be able to give an octagon table away for about 20 years, until it comes around again.
My advice is: sell your "Tuscan" nick-knacks now (sooo 2000) and get on the Moroccan bandwagon. Paint crazy patterns on your hardwood floors instead of installing mosaic tile floors. Buy Persian rugs. Ditch the granite countertops and go for busy tile patterns. Used items from the 1970s (which are cheap and mostly unwanted) will work with this style.
