The new 'undecorating' trend is to combine old and new, quirky and formal furnishings together in a highly personalized way.

Mixing wood blinds with delicate, sheer curtains is a combination that home furnishings author Christiane Lemieux would probably like.

Her new book, "Undecorate: The No-Rules Approach to Interior Design," focused on 20 homes across the U.S. where the owners had a highly personalized mix of eye-catching design and everyday function in their furnishings.

"Great style isn't necessarily a finished product so much as it is an ongoing process.," she told the San Francisco Chronicle.

Some examples in the book include a 1970s home in San Francisco where the homeowners used a black-and-white palette, but lightened it up with soft textures and lots of natural light. A New York City couple turned their Brooklyn apartment into a serene retreat by emphasizing the airiness brought into the space by its high ceilings and large windows.

Lemieux's "undecorating" style was emphasized in a Kansas City house where the homeowners managed to be down-to-earth and sophisticated at the same time, where modern occasional tables are at home with a French console.

Wood blinds are a versatile window covering that bring a natural look to a design scheme and go well with both contemporary and traditional furnishings.
