The look of contemporary mixed with traditional is quite the trend these days but tricky to achieve. How do you mix what you already own with new pieces and not look like you have multiple personality disorder? When done right the end result is highly appealing. I love the mixture of hard surfaces with soft, billowy fabrics. This home captured the essence of that perfectly by adding natural linen sheers to offset a red brick exterior and floor to ceiling windows. The simplicity of design adds to the high impact of opposing textures.
