When the home is strictly mid-century modern that design needs to be respected, but I like to mix! Design needs to respect the architecture, but can feel stale and dated if everything is in the same style. The great room includes a sculptural chair and ottoman that’s decidedly mid-century, but we mixed grasscloth, a traditional bench, a contemporary leather sectional and custom coffee table to keep the room fresh and exciting.

Lighting is so important when updating a home. In this renovation we invested in eye catching light fixtures and they instantly made the home feel young and fresh. I especially loved the lighting solution I came up with in the narrow powder room to include the homeowners treasured mirror!
