Take 2: I love modern, but my house is traditional

by

Elle Decor’s article Reviving a Historic House beautifully illustrates how traditional and modern design compliment each other.

It doesn’t get much more traditional than the house that Ted Tuttle bought.  It was designed by Elizabeth Ayer, the first woman to graduate from architecture school at the University of Washington in 1935.

Could you ever imagine this piece in this house?

Well, hello darling……..

Or what about the Kalos chair from B&B Italia’s Maxalto collection?

Hmmm, Kalos looks right at home ….

In fact, Elizabeth Ayer could have relaxed in this chair while studying the work of her contemporary Mies van der Rohe.  And, that Barcelona couch rests just as easily in the living room as it could have when Ms. Ayer lived there.

Whether contemporary, traditional, or Modern, classic style spans time effortlessly.  Go ahead, work out your traditional bones with a bit of modern living!
