This Transitional room designed by Velvet Hammerschmidt, showcases both traditional and contemporary elements. Simple dining chair profiles paired with a rich wood table and light wood floors speak to contemporary design but then the chandelier, mirror and chair in the entry hall have much more traditional leanings. Even looking into the living room I see a traditional accent chair but modern glass and metal stacking side tables.
New Bohemia is a pastoral trend that blends bucolic elements with second-hand objects for an authentic look that updates the vintage aesthetic for a contemporary age. The composition of floral inspiration, mix of modern and craft with a feminine touch transforms the place in an original but authentic home.
The Family of leather, stone and wood ~ INSTINCT fuses the ancient, mythological, raw, and the primitive with a highly technical modern-day aesthetic. Instinct belongs to a citizen of the world with grown-up tastes and could be simply described as a mix of ethnic and modern sophistication.
Ask your child what his or her favorite color is, and you’ll get a quick answer. Then ask what the SECOND favorite color is, and you’ve opened a gold-mine that will help you create the perfect look for your child’s room by using BOTH of those colors. This gives you the opportunity to add details in either color, in window treatments, trims, paint, accessories, custom pillows and bedspreads, floor coverings, lighting and furnishings. This will also keep you from getting bogged down in matching just one color, and lets the young ones have their say in how their personal spaces look and feel!
