I believe strongly in providing my clients with warm and welcoming luxury. The rooms my team and I design for homeowners are livable yet elevated. Collaboration is key and sharing my interior design inspirations helps clients craft their vision. Of course, it also lets me rave about my favorite design styles!
I am and always have been an advocate for a “classically current” style that, while evergreen, provides a timely presence to any room. Though I tailor each experience to every client for a unique collaboration, I secretly live for those small touches that balance whimsy and sophistication! But “classically current” isn’t a limiting phrase by any means.
Whether you’re looking for a mid-century sofa in a distinct fabric, that perfect statement mirror, or something else entirely – there’s a timely yet timeless piece out there for you.
Classics for Any Room
This high rise kitchen is a prime example of what I love about the “classically current” style. Notice the detailing of the marble, white walls, and rich leather chairs. Balanced against these elements you have the dark cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and — of course — the gold touches.
Maybe it reminds you of your favorite haunt in New York City or a classic Parisian pied-a-terre? It may mean something different to everyone depending on personal experiences. No matter the style of kitchen you want (galley, cook’s, open, etc), this concept of using neutral color palettes and warm materials with punchy design elements in your current artistic zeitgeist never goes out of style.
Now let’s get to the meat and potatoes of any house: the living room!
Eclectic, But Simple
You can also apply this mentality to your living room!
As an example of classically current style, this Boho modern living room employs some similar features to the kitchen. Notice the crisp white? But there are clear differences.
The wood-work, metalwork, and natural woven lounge chairs add another layer of personality. The clean walls keep things light and bright and the blending of materials grants a modern feel without adding weight to the room. The finishes on the overhead accents are brushed copper which is a great alternative to antiqued or brushed gold. There are so many different kinds of materials and textures at work in this room, but none of them fight each other. That is the beauty of classically current styling and another reason why I love our design philosophy so SO much.
Doesn’t everyone love a fabulous foyer?
After all, it’s the very first space your guests see when they enter your home. This is the spot to plant your feet and make a firm statement.
While your eyes are automatically drawn to the stellar floor pattern in this gorgeous Houston foyer, other moments in the room stand apart as well. If you’ve noticed the trend of mixed materials, fresh white walls, and metal accents, you’re grasping the concept of the “classically current” design philosophy!
One thing to note, minimalist does not equal boring. But it does mean that everything ins thoughtfully placed and has a specific function.
Color is your friend, really!
At this point, you might be thinking: is “classically current” style ALL about white and metal? Short answer: definitely not!
Our clients built this beautiful custom home in The Woodlands, Texas and we created this living room in the “classically current” mode. While the home is not inherently contemporary in style (the architecture is more traditional) our clients admire and love the contemporary interior design. Here, we make these two intersecting styles work! We showcase how we use color by placing it as a grounding neutral (the modern rug) and then inject key elements like the mid-century modern Barcelona bench in Pony and the natural stacked stone on the fireplace. The key to this strategy is in balance.
I can go on for days about our Classically Current philosophy so, for more ideas on designing with this in mind, I’ve got you covered on our socials. The Dbh-biz.info blog has an entire tag dedicated to “classically current” because…well, it is my jam!
