Leah Atkins' clients wanted to leave their cluttered, country style in the past and go for a fresh, traditional look in their new home. Thus, their entryway features a neutral color palette with antiques layered in, like a traditional console table, bust, oil painting and upholstered ottoman.
A vintage wood buffet serves as a credenza in this soft blue living room, providing stylish storage space. A concrete bust, sculptural horse lamp and oil painting adorn the credenza, lending traditional style to the space.
For a family who likes color, this living room certainly delivers. The blue trellis wallpaper in the living room helps define the space within an open floor plan. A purple velvet sofa gets a bright mix of colorful pillows.
Countertops continue to define a kitchen's style — but they don't have to be a budget-buster. This granite look-alike from Wilsonart is actually laminate but unlike previous laminate countertops features a more realistic, larger stone pattern and rounded edge for a high-end granite look at a fraction of the price.

Modern meets traditional in this elegant dining room. A round stone table with brown leather chairs anchors the space while the abstract wall art, wrought-iron chandelier and oriental rug add texture and personality.
Steel gray paint and traditional woodwork sets a serious tone in this study, but its use as a whimsical space for collections makes the room a real conversation piece. From a crumbling Classical sculpture to a mod metal shark mounted above the fireplace, the room is packed with interesting decor and collectibles.
This nursery's pale yellow crib adds to the room's transitional vibe and really pops against the non-traditional black chalkboard walls. The whimsical arrangement of numbers and animal busts gives the room a playful, easygoing feel.
Bring a traditional bath into the 21st century, no time machine necessary. A coat of burnt orange paint instantly updates this bath's classic woodwork, fixtures and marble vanity, while the modern artwork and whimsical bust-turned-towel rack further bridge the "then and now."
Not only is the fireplace kept low, but the firebox also features a glass back, creating a seamless transition from the indoors to the out. Tone-on-tone patterns are used on the throw pillows and area rug to bring much-needed texture to the contemporary space, while a classic bust adds a traditional note to the room.
