I am a traditional girl, I can't help it, it's the way my brain thinks. My sister is excellent at modern. We make a good team!
I love this English barley twist gate-leg table. Darryl Carter takes these pieces steeped in tradition and brings them current with the white upholstery, painted floors and modern artwork.
This beautiful 4 poster European bed and bench are flanked by modern side tables.

Mr. MD has a desk like this, just need to get him a lucite chair. Not sure he would go for it, but I like it!
My grandparent's business had this type of chest in many places, solid mahogany of course. I love how many creative ways I have seen them painted with updated hardware.
I adore tufting and this chair is paired with a modern silver table. Another painted chest in the background.
I was excited when I saw this Darryl Carter design featured in Elle Decor. This is certainly not 'grannies are us', Duncan Phyfe mixed with modern cubes.
My own living room has been a work in progress for quite some time.
I started by painting the ceiling slate gray and the walls a creamy white.
See here for sofa reno.

Amanda Talley art here
I found this bench at the Screendoor in Ashville, NC. Looking for a fun fabric to jazz it up a bit.
Next in line will be a carpet change, lacquer the marble top table and frame the Amanda Talley.
