Defining a New Traditional Style

When my clients moved from the city into a 14-year-old home on the North Shore, we began a multi-phased renovation of the entire residence, including the master bedroom. As young professionals with a growing family, they wanted an updated traditional look that is fresh and clean-lined.

For the master bedroom, that translates into modernized furnishings such as a classic upholstered bench with unexpected acrylic legs. I call it “New Traditional,” a mix of classic and contemporary styling and materials that makes everyone feel at home.  This stately, 16-year-old residence is located on a narrow, fairy-tale lane in Glenview lined with majestic old trees.  Work kicked-off   in 2019 with the master bedroom and proceeded in stages.

My clients wanted the bed to be the centerpiece of the room, so I chose this stately four-poster from Old Biscayne Designs but deleted the metal frame canopy.

That modification simplifies the look and retains the open feeling of this lofty space.

I love the image of the four posts reaching for the ceiling. To build on the New Traditional styling, I chose a bench from Stanford with acrylic legs. 

So clean and fresh.
