A Traditional Living Room with a Tufted Sofa

This post on Apartment Therapy got me thinking. The author, Lindsay Roberts, moved from the Pacific Northwest to the DC area and found herself inspired to add traditional/colonial accents. 

Should our interiors try recreate the time period in which our homes and neighborhoods were originally constructed? 

In the Southwest many homes are built to emulate a different time period than the modern age they were constructed in. What do we do then?

In any case, I found the items below for all of our East Coasters at heart. You can also check out our selection of traditional designs in almost every category.
