Two Easy Ways to Update Your Traditional Home

Top Interior Designer, Kingsley Belcher Knauss, explains the easiest ways to transform a traditional home to a transitional style.

Fashion Week is wrapping up in New York City. It’s always fun to see what’s new on the runway, and determine which trends speak to our own personal style. If you’re like me you might incorporate a few new items into your wardrobe to keep feeling up-to-date.

The same is true with home style. Just as you’d update a classic black dress with in vogue accessories, some of the most interesting and sophisticated rooms are comprised of a mix of traditional and modern elements. But it can be tricky to pull off. What’s the easiest mix to get right? Start with contemporary art and lighting to elevate a traditional room.

When you mix the classic sensibility of architecture and furnishings with contrasting contemporary art and lighting, the careful balance of modern and traditional combine to create a timeless interior.
