I recently had a client come to me who needs help designing the family room in her new condo. Kim has just turned 28, started a new government job, and feels like it is finally time to buy some “big girl furniture” and to get rid of the ol’ Ikea and college hand-me-down junk.
I decided to post about this project because Kim and I have a very similar aesthetic and I really connected with what she has envisioned- “mature”, “sophisticated”, and “elegant” were the three words she said when I asked her to describe what she had envisioned. In other words, she likes a feminine yet refined look with a modern twist.
(I want to point out that she did not want the TV to be the focal point in the room.)
I just love taking traditional pieces but updating them with a modern and graphic fabric and bold paint!
I achieved this look by combining clean modern pieces and dark woods with accents (like the floor lamp) that have a more organic shape.
What’s your take on modern meets traditional?
