Great post! I am excited that traditional decor is making a big comeback. I like to consider my style to be traditional with a trendy twist (and lots of flourishes!). I see so many rooms online that look like catalog shoots where everything is new. I have always liked to mix old, new, handmade, inexpensive, and pricier items for the collected look. I love to collect and hunt for items. I even recently found a bust similar to yours that I am just gaga for. She just got a prominent spot in the living room after taking down the holiday decor. Happy New Year to you and your family, Erin! :-)
Lowe, a former musician and longtime fashion designer, has launched a third career as an interior designer, with an “edgy style that is slightly quirky, a little rock chic, and ludicrously romantic,” says Parker. When it came time to apply her aesthetic to her new kitchen, Lowe turned to deVOL , maker of English kitchens for nearly a quarter century. Though deVOL is known for its traditional English and Shaker sensibilities, the company collaborated with Lowe to design a backdrop of handmade cabinetry well suited to the designer’s own style: “traditional English with little eccentricities, and some modern cool thrown in.” Join us for a tour.
