Interior Design: Southborough, MA: Traditional to Transitional Style Decor

Southborough was founded as a result of breaking away from Marlborough in a similar way to Westborough. It is made up of the smaller villages of Cordaville, Fayville, and Southville. Southborough has long been a town of desire to live in due to its natural beauty and peace that has not built up with corporate businesses as much as its neighbors.

Southborough Interior Design styles tend to be more traditional that some of of the other towns of Worcester County such as Shrewsbury. European Styles are popular in the choice of fabrics such as French Country Toile de Jouy. Draperies preferences tend more often to be full and luxurious with embellishments, tassels or trims. They can range from a very traditional Tassel Fringe to a more modern geometric tape trim.

Clients with larger homes tend to have a room that will often be fun, colorful & eye catching. Palm Prints tend to be a popular choice for Window Treatments and accent pillows. Pillows are one of the best ways to change the decor, style and feeling of a room quick with little commitment & minimal investment.

Interior Design: Shrewsbury, MA Modern Classic Style Decor

As we get ready to celebrate 35 years of Interior Design and Window Treatments In central Massachusetts (and beyond), We have decided to take a look back and think about how each town of Metro West has a unique sense of its own style.

The Town of Shrewsbury was incorporated in 1727 and  was named for Shrewsbury, England. It was settles as a Suburban town of Worcester from the start. Lake Quinsigamond  brought a summer resort population as well as the White City Amusement Parks that had come out of the Chicago’s World Fair.

We have worked with hundreds if not thousands of clients from Shrewsbury over our 35 years in metro west. While the design style is generally classic, Clients have enjoyed using accessories that have a whimsy sophisticated twist. A blend of vintage & modern, mixing and matching textures has been a popular trend in fabric selection.
