The Power of the Modern Classic

Nancy Price Interior Design

The Modern Classic does two things at once: it applauds the preservation of iconic styles while announcing the presence of new, breathtaking looks. Whether furnishing a beach villa in the Hamptons or a rustic home in Jackson, Mississippi, the charisma and character of modern classic design can truly enliven a space. There’s nothing boring about modern classic design, which is notable due to its distinct metallics, clean lines and captivating color palette.

Contemporary classicism offers a wide-bearing source of finesse. The modern and elegant look can be a diverse one, drawing on fine elements of beautiful molding, architecture, and unique pieces. White and light beige walls are often matched with dark accents and chocolate couches. Antique designs, unique frames, signature mirrors and chic cabinetry can be used in combination to inspire sophisticated displays and collections.

On this “snowy” day in #jacksonms we’re reminiscing on our time at the #christopherkennedycompound in sunny #palmsprings as featured in the latest @traditionalhome magazine. Thank you to the great companies and artists who helped this room come to life – @kentatearchitect for the stunning piece of art on the opposite wall, the #baccochandelier from @julianchichesterusa that truly brought #modernismweek out in this room, the @joecariati decanters, and all of our great #antique pieces, including the #maisonjansentable, and both the quartrefoil and hostess chairs newly upholstered in @kravetinc fabric. #nancyprice #nancypriceinteriordesign #interiordesign #design #decor #diningroomdesign #mod #luxe #jxnmsdesign #palmspringsdesign

Stylish elegance can exist in traditional and modern settings, made possible by the use of tiles, marble, and upholstered beds. Additionally, the use of custom furniture, artful lighting, curated antiques and adventurous artwork can demonstrate to anyone that a classic home isn’t just a thing of beauty, it’s a something to be inspired by, it’s something to be imitated.
