Yeah, patios and walkway/garden lights were very in during the '90s, it was a pretty outdoors-oriented decade. And leather furniture was incredibly popular. I also think French doors and hardwood floors became popular during the 1990s, and fireplaces were sort of in style.

A strange mix of Urban culture and Internet Boom.

I'd say the '00s are even more urban.  But yeah, that pretty much sums up the feeling.  Also, the '90s were more "dirty" looking than today.
