This is going to sound like an oxymoron but this room is a great example of an updated traditional look. This room is true to the owner’s traditional roots and yet it is a very modern, well put together and stylish setting. This room reflects a traditional style while staying right in step with today’s fashion trends. How? The room is almost completely made up of updated classics. The console table and mirror though classic designs go a long way towards updating this room due to their shabby distressed finish. These accent furniture pieces are not only transitional in nature but they cross generational lines as well.
These pieces really would work as well in a young 20 something’s home as they would for a more mature homeowner. The next feature that catches the eye is the table lamp. A real statement piece thanks to its exceptional ceramic finish, the traditional, double gourd lamp sports a tapered drum shade that very subtly updates the look. Lastly, the area rug that grounds the entire room is a fresh silver-gray and gold. The soft neutral tones in this rug help to make this room feel larger, softer and a bit calmer than the affect stronger more vibrant colors would have.
