Traditional design no longer means scrolled legs and fussy valances in maroon and forest green. New traditional design, or "rad trad" as we affectionately call it, consists of bold colors, clean lines and a mix of more commonly traditional items (such as a colorful antique style rug) with more unexpected elements (like a vintage lacquered credenza).
6// Sunglasses? Keys? Sunscreen? Dog Leashes? The functionality of a credenza in the foyer is impressive...and it looks fantastic as well. (you can even check out craigslist for cheap dresser, buy some new hardware and lacquer it yourself if you are DIY person)
So, go ahead and embrace your more traditional side...the new interpretation of Traditional is fresh, timeless and oh so stylish. Trad is Rad.
