New Traditional spaces are timeless with elegant additions that offer but a little fun and youthfulness to keep the design fresh. Clean, uncluttered spaces make a significant style impact. Add approachable touches, like furniture with sleeker forms, to what used to be formal rooms. Feel free to mix and match different finishes such as light and dark wood stains, paint, mirror, metal and leather. Try lighting that has mixed metal finishes or fixtures that are new takes on classic silhouettes. Light, airy colors accented with a pop of color help make the New Traditional spaces feel open and spacious rather than cramped, as do windows that are uncovered or covered minimally with simpler treatments.
