The Perfect Mix

For quite some time, we have been seeing the trend of
mixing modern design with traditional elements.
This home from Connecticut Cottages & Gardens,
accomplishes this mix so perfectly with it's
chic modern furnishings and it's gorgeous
traditional roots, that I just had to share it here.








This last shot of the exterior of the house really
exemplifies how well modern shapes mix with
traditional architecture.

  3. Really, really great! I have a 2 pillows just like the bench in the 1st photo...I'm inspired to get them back out and mix it up :) Thanks for the motivating Monday feature. And that girls room....REALLY?! If we had a daughter, there might be new construction zone in my home!! XO, Kelly

  10. I like it a lot. This home gives a very classic yet modern expression. This is the key to a perfect home(but still can be difficult to put togehter)!
    How do they do that?

  11. LOVE the exposed beams and built in book shelves!

  12. I'm working on a similar project with a client. They are building a house...almost old world with traditional elements, but their esthetic is mid century modern. It takes time and talent to make the combo plate work, so I'm impressed with work you've shown here. Love the large bench and coffee table together.

  18. The second to last room looks like it would be part of a Betsy Johnson house! I love Conneticut homes, especially the ones in Greenwhich. They're gorgeous inside. LOVE the room with the turquoise curtains! The high ceilings with the rafters in the second pic are beautiful. I'm so envious of all these lovely rooms!

  32. I love the old and new inspiration here. We are in the process of buying a house built in the 1920s and I definitely want to freshen up the interiors while giving nod to it's history. Many of these will go in my inspiration files. Thanks!

  45. That white rug is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. I can picture myself waking up in the morning and my feet hitting that instead of our current carpet. What a great way to start the day.

  57. I love this mix of old and new! That second picture in particular is a great example - it reminds me of all the houses I've seen in Amsterdam, that used to be warehouses but have now been converted to apartments. And that bathroom is very cool!
