Decorating & Furniture/tudor style house


We are buying a tudor-style house.  The house has two rooms that can be used for living/family rooms.  Both of these rooms have the tudor look of white walls and dark brown beams.  One of the rooms has hardwood floors and the other has a neutral color of carpet.  In our current house, we have plain, clean lined, black leather couches and simple black end tables and coffee table.  Do you think we can work our current furniture into a tudor style house and do you have any suggestions for how to do so?  Thanks!

Hi Jaime

I think your furniture will look really good in this house.

I like mixing old and new and if I had a Tudor style home myself would much rather decorate it in a modern style than a more traditional country cottage look.

I would definitely stick with the white walls and the black furniture and would just brighten it up a bit with a colour - whatever you like really but red would be stunning - and use that in a few rugs and cushions.

Kind regards
