Terrific Traditional Design
Traditional design often gets a bad rap but in the right hands, it can look fresh instead of fuddy duddy. The clients who hired interior designer Miles Redd and architect Gil Schafer to design their San Francisco home actually suggested the look and had Pinterest boards to help convey their vision. The wife said, “Antiques are such a good value today, and they’re great for a family lifestyle; they’ve already been through a lot and will go through more, and old carpets are pretty much indestructible.”
Sometimes I’m glad that young people want modern design because that means more antiques and old china for me but they are really missing out. They really don’t make things like the used to and instead of buying a cheap nondescript piece of furniture at Ikea, you can buy something old and well made for probably the same price. A piece that will last for many more years to come and add soul to your apartment. Give it a try.
