Interior Design: How To Mix Traditional And Modern Decor

5621 ratings | 607103 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.

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.

And normally mirrors add space

Bellissimi arredi. Potresti far vedere anche un appartamento? Magari in italiano. Grazie

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.

Okay, well... This video sounds more like what the designer is about that about how to mix different styles. I didn't learn anything.

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.

I totally love this😍 reminds me of my parents' house which was built in 1837 in a typical British colonial style so prevalent in South east Asia.

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 (11 months 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.
Proverbs Belle (1 month ago)
IMHO, that bath wall nor gold accented kitchen, nor monochromatic living room are traditional.
Jessica LT (5 months ago)
ABH no it isn’t. It is a mix of both.

beautiful but I'd be scared to death to even sit down!!!  I want to feel COMFORTABLE and not worry if a book is not straight...I know they spruce it up before filming so I want to see it at 7pm when  REAL people are watching TV and eating a real meal,  Dirty dishes in the sink, etc..... Ad also LOVE the red rug room.   my favorite....
ChicagoCathrun (1 month ago)
Yeah...I can look at my own dirty dishes, I don't need to look at anyone else's. And why would I want to watch other people watching tv? There's something to be said for keeping some private things...private.

Stunning. Still waiting for them to ask a male designer what his Wife has to say about his designs, as they did here. "Lemme get this straight, your husband Lets you do what you do for a living in your home?"

how do you even know they asked her? And besides a couple should both have input into their house.

Although there may be a few heterosexual male designers, it's pretty rare. More likely to have a husband than a wife.

reivenne (2 years ago)
Sure, it's pretty.... but that bathroom wall paint is nightmare inducing, and the upstairs den... how the hell do you comfortably watch tv in there? It's tucked away into the corner, almost as far from the couch as you could get. Not practical.
