Have you ever given any thought about how you developed your personal sense of style? Were you influenced by fashion icons? HGTV stars? Or maybe, like the people on that Progressive insurance commercial, you are becoming your parents?

When it comes to their homes, I find that my clients generally want a contemporary look. But, often there are things one would associate with an earlier era that find a way into their homes’ decor.

Whether it’s a color scheme, a retro lamp, or a fondness for a particular style of chair or table, we do sometimes give homage to the homes we grew up in through the things we choose for our own homes.

Do you see anything in the photo above (from the 1990s) or below that you think would make you feel more at home?
