What Is English Style?

Tonight is the night, the 2012 London Olympics begins this evening. Here in Colorado we tend to be bigger fans of the Winter Games, but we are still excited to watch some of the events like swimming, soccer and Cycling- BMX, which makes it’s second appearance in the Olympic Games in London.

So with all the recent talk we’ve done with the Olympic venues, we thought we’d take a look today at British style and architecture as a whole. Houzz has recently highlighted the “Secrets of a Quintessential English Home” and we wanted to share some of their findings.

Throughout the next two weeks we’ll highlight one particular style and help you achieve that look in your home.

First up is “English high style.” Think a modern day Downtown Abbey. Antiques, heirlooms, that sort of thing.

As you can see muted tones and statement lighting is a must.
