A few streamlined pieces go a long way in striking a modern-traditional balance, says McGee. In this living room, sculptural task lamps and simple furniture offset the traditional leanings of the floral and paisley accessories. The result is layered and surprising rather than one-note.
We recently completed this living room along with several other spaces for this client. The house is a beautiful Greek revival and the client has great taste– a modern take on traditional style very similar to my own. In fact, we bonded over our love of all things Chinoiserie and pretty fabrics.
