What Do You Think of a Modern Traditional Style?

A traditional style of decorating is so popular and versatile that I want to cover it in another post to give you a flavor of all it offers.  This post shows a mix of modern and traditional in very unique ways.  I hope you smile as you see these photos. . .

Seattle architect Stuart Silk "could live in a flat-roof modern quite comfortably,” but" his wife Mary is a “dyed-in-the-wool traditionalist,” so he combined their two styles in a beautiful way that has some surprising twists, such as in their bathroom.

Isn't their kitchen a little surprising also with how much it leans to the modern side?

I hope this was another fun adventure in discovering what style of decorating or combination of styles, speaks to your heart!  It changes life to surround yourself with beauty and things that inspire you.  It doesn't even need to be your whole home.  It can be a piece of art or a vase of flowers, a keepsake or an accessory that speaks to something within you (I'll tell you about one of mine in another post.)

Speaking of beauty. . .

Have a beautiful week!!
