The new traditional look is about taking traditional shapes and combining them in fresh, new ways. By adding in one or two modern pieces, or combining goods from different eras, or just leaving a little bit of space, you can create a design that's refreshing and almost minimal, but still retains the grace and charm of the past.

There's a lot going on in this living room from Domino, but somehow it all works. The color of the velvet sofa coordinates perfectly with the quirky wall treatment, and the settee and side chair are a nice complement.
