Mid century modern meets a crash of contemporary and classical decor themes in these three home designs. Each exquisite interior takes a sip from multiple eras and styles to create interesting combinations that excite the eye. We travel first to a lakehouse that incorporates an eclectic combo of elements to shape a chic and sophisticated home, and classical art pieces instil culture. Our second tour takes place under ornate ceiling roses and intricate coving, where graceful window arches inspire curved furniture silhouettes that juxtapose sturdy mid century pieces. Our final featured home has an ethereal white scheme in which modern gold and marble accents mingle with vintage style chairs and traditional sculpture for a captivating result.
