Designer Sarah Gibson of Room for Tuesday decided her formal living room—the place her family uses daily to unwind—could use an elevated design refresh.
Their home was a 1990s new build, with an exterior inspired off of classic Georgian Colonial architecture. However, the interior remained bland and builder-basic. As they’ve been renovating room-by-room, Sarah and her husband leaned into their traditional style for the foundational elements—adding much needed character and interest—knowing they will incorporate modern furnishings for an eclectic mix of modern-meets-classic. After knocking down walls, installing beams, updating the fireplace, and adding built-ins, they were ready to invest in quality furnishings that were durable, comfortable, and timeless. They turned to Maiden Home to find those pieces and, in keeping with the overall design of the house, chose modern, ultra-comfortable silhouettes with traditional detailing to reflect their unique style.
We chatted with Sarah recently about her traditional-meets-elegant home—where the perfect balance of romantic detailing, texturally luxe fabrics, and inviting silhouettes create a comfortable elegance that her family could enjoy.
