In my eyes heaven would look like this: early 19th century Georgian interiors painted white with pops of modern decor! I love this new trend of mixing traditional with modern. 

The classic Georgian interior had crystal chandeliers, gold decor, dark mahogany wood, heavy ornamentation and rich colors. Today you often see the original crown molding, plaster ceilings and gilded mirrors painted completely white. Art historians might think this is a sin, but personally I like the subtle glam! The crystal chandeliers and gold accents feel more antique and less ritzy living in a neutral environment. Weathered wood replaces the mahogany but continues to add texture and warmth to the space. Lastly, and my favorite touch, mid-century modern furniture added for a not so matchy-matchy look!
