9 Things to Love About Traditional Décor

Since moving to the Mid-Atlantic, I have a new liking for the following: toile, the color red, blue and white paired, bronze eagle objects, framed antique-y prints, brick, American flags, rocking chairs and antiques. What else do you appreciate about the DC-Maryland-Virginia style?

Coming from the Pacific Northwest meant a shift from mid-century modern, hipster style, to more traditional, colonial-influenced style. Have you ever moved to a new place and broadened your appreciation for that culture's décor, and then found yourself incorporating elements of that region's style?
