design trends TRADITIONAL STYLE WITH A TWIST

Casual Formality In historic homes, proper dining rooms were an integral part of the design. Today's homes don't always need a formal room, but a dining space (or two) are still a necessity. This open floor plan kitchen has an updated sensibility by encompassing both the breakfast nook and a more tailored dining area. Traditional furniture in deep woods renders a richness to the mostly gray and white space. – Sheila Mayden Photo by WE Stuido Photography

This entry with its classic white architectural details — flanking Corinthian columns and bay window surrounded by elaborate window moldings — pairs beautifully with the baby blue siding. A brilliant blue front door punches up the color scheme, whereas overhead gold address numbers paint an Old English script to the transom window. A hanging lantern lights up the doorstep to welcome friends into this San Francisco townhouse. – Jonathan Rachman

Relaxed Grandeur Soft neutrals and whites set a serene scene for this heart of the home. Architectural details, like the beadboard ceiling and glass upper cabinets, create a timeless quality to the room, while a bubble chandelier and gradient mosaic tile backsplash convey a modern aesthetic. Curvy ends on the kitchen island are an unexpected and gentle touch. – Anne Michaelsen 48 CAPITAL AREA REALTOR ® — Spring 2019
