What Would Mario Do?

I recently had a birthday and it has caused me to make some changes.  Suddenly things I could get away with in my 20s and 30s cannot be forgiven now that I am pushing 40.  So,  I bought a nice handbag, got a good haircut, and started slathering wrinkle cream on my face every night.  I know, a little late now huh? It hasn't made me feel better anyway.  I also started looking around at my home.  My decorating is not fit for a 40 year old.  Too many thrift store/diy/spraypainted things.  Too many styles going on at once.  I like to call it blogger style.  I read dozens of decorating blogs and it shows in my home.  Too many ideas!  My home needs a more grown up look.  So I am starting over.  And my inspiration is Mario Buatta! 

Tradition and chintz!  Perfectly proper for a not quite 40 year old lady don't you think?  With my budget there will be some diy and help from my good friends etsy, ebay and Mr Craig.  Any Golden Girls out there looking to get rid of their chintz?
