Interior Design: How To Mix Traditional And Modern Decor

6754 ratings | 737618 views
Designer Allison Willson of Sarah Richardson Design discusses how she renovated her home for her young family. See how she preserves the 1906 Edwardian semi’s charm with vintage pieces and modern updates for the perfect mix between old and new. The home is largely traditional, but playful, contemporary accents liven up the rooms. A statement rug in the living room adds color to the neutral palette, while animal prints offer an unexpected dose of fun in the den. The kitchen features huge brass lights and marble subway tile, and the bathrooms follow suit with a similarly industrial aeshtetic. The most predominent color in the home is soothing grey, and when paired with the plush, comfortable furniture, it creates a space both kids and adults can enjoy.

The headboard or the mirror, not both. Other than that? Gorgeous.

This is how so many so called homes are these days. They all look like hotel lobbies and rooms. Could belong to anyone. No personal character.

I absolutely love combining traditional and modern and this one looks great! A cookie cutter furniture store grouping living room or bedroom or whatever is "empty" feeling, and un-inspiring. IMHU,🤔

Beautiful home ...period!. However very feminish and there is nothing that reflects anything of the husband which is actually a shame. I just hope women would stop doing this sort of thing

Love the mirror with the sun rays shooting out. I've seen it on some other decor blogs. Gold sure seems to be on trend lately, doesn't it? But so does copper, and I liked the approach of mixing copper antiques with modern decor, like on this blog: http://bit.ly/2XSpKl9.

What is the width of your kitchen? I love the idea of the island and table side by side but I am not quite sure we have the space for it

I love her choice of color. It's warm, sophisticated and tasteful. She chooses a blondes colors, grey and light pink. I read that grey maximizes the light for a home in the northern hemisphere, where some times of the year can get dark. Although, where I live these homes would be many millions of dollars to buy and probably another million more to renovate and furnish. Spectacular home and taste, just a little hard to relate to, for the layperson...

How to mix traditional and modern decor? -By putting them together

Love the living room carpet and the more muted furniture. Did not like the mirror above the tall headboard towards the beginning. It made the ceiling feel lower actually.

What a boring house. I feel like I need to go to sleep immediately.

My sister-in-law has a beautifully decorated and expensive looking home. She pulls it all together from TJMaxx and other similar stores.

Amazing home. I keep watching this video for ideas. I love how you didn't do the only one or two accent color throughout the whole home rule...so boring to have the same accent color throughout the house. Much more prefer using lots of neutrals and adding a little color in each room and sticking to that.

This is just traditional, not modern. I think of modern as minimalist. I'd like to see how/if you could blend minimalist modern with country/traditional.

She said it's traditional with modern elements. There are definitely some modern aspects in there such as the coffee table in the living room, the gold accents in the kitchen, the bathroom walls and the modern art in her husband's favourite room. I hate it when people watch videos and don't actually listen to what's being said!

That kitchen and dining space is so amazing, I want to pack all my stuff and live there now. You can clearly see the skills and passion this woman has! Designing is a creative process, it's not just functional!

Love white, mirrors...especially venetians, and chandeliers. I'm an artist so I do my own unique tweaks...which vary. I have my bedroom in silver mirrored furniture I refurbished with a white leather " tully" bed. I added a canopy and framed a flower wall in a white ornate frame I found which I painted. ....as my " backdrop.

This house is really beautiful, and I want to study all of the rooms and their vignettes. One thing I'm confused about, though. She said there was no pattern in the living room other than the rug, but the two chairs have a subtle pattern, and the single chair has an animal print.

I wonder if House & Home could find out the colour on her office cabinet doors and the colour of the bathroom vanity? I also love the blue grey of the furniture next to the fire place. #House&HomeMagazine
veritatis cupitor (1 year ago)
She has a truly great sense of style, it looks grand -but still cosy, classic but still reflects her own personal style (with little quirks & surprises but overall it oozes comfort). LOVE!

Beautiful, I like when you walk in you feel people "live" in the space. This home had some lovely colours, coziness, warmth, beautiful!!
ABH (1 year ago)
Beautifully done (good job), but this is not a "mix of traditional and modern". I wish people would stop being fast and loose with terminology (especially on titles to capture more clicks) and be more accurate. This is classically traditional.
Helenaville (4 months ago)
Clearly it's a mix with such modern fixtures and fittings. You sound angry inside and perhaps this video is your punch bag?
Proverbs Belle (7 months ago)
IMHO, that bath wall nor gold accented kitchen, nor monochromatic living room are traditional.
Jessica LT (11 months ago)
ABH no it isn’t. It is a mix of both.
