Stylistically our 1939 house is probably more traditional in nature. I prefer traditional with a twist. Currently the kitchen has somewhat of an eclectic Italian flair to it. We also like elements of Retro, French Country (see Parisian Bistro below,) Art Deco and Cottage. Bright, warm, inviting, comfy, classic with a strong artistic twist! Usable and durable are important to hold up to kids, dog and parties. Good storage and organizational systems are a must as we tend to have to much stuff on the counters.
