Should interior design style match the home's achitectural style?

No Thanks

wife and i just bought a 100-year old colonial/tudor. we both really like the Scandinavian interior design style however i think it might clash against the style in which the home is built. personally i think an arts & crafts, mission, shaker or transitional look may be more "appropriate".

is this a realistic consideration or does it not matter? obviously, at the end of the day it's what suits the owner but i am curios if, generally speaking, there should be some harmony between the two.

thanks in advance for any insights!
