A classic, modern living room

The layering of texture, the mix of modern and old, high-end and low, a colour palette of black and white warmed by rich caramels. Simply delicious. A classic, modern living room by Austin-based Claire Brody Designs.

I really like this. I guess I am decidedly in the eclectic camp. I would have more antiques and fewer MCM pieces, but a mix of styles is what I like best. This place has tons of personality–it's its own place, not an amalgam of trends.

This was my favorite 2016 One Room Challenge! I'm glad you featured it. It deserves more attention.

A really nice mix! This looks collected over time. A lot of designers make rushed attempts at it. But, it so often falls short with soulless or contrived spaces that look like they used an algorithm for "eclectic."
I suspect Claire Brody has a penchant for collecting and keeps a good inventory of fabulous Thrift/Flea/Craigslist treasures for clients. This is High and Low, Old and New well done and thoughtful.
