Designer Rachel Fox shares a family home that combines traditional silhouettes and contemporary decor for a timeless aesthetic. See how she mixes rich woods and warm tones with touches of black and unconventional antiques to create a classic and functional space.
The house’s palette is black and white, making it easy to layer in rich hits of color with accessories. An aqua blue bowl sits atop the round dining table that has a French-polish finish, and greenery adds brightness in almost every room. Art pops against the home’s white walls. The skylit kitchen has a subway tile backsplash, grey cabinetry and a Carrara marble island. The dining table is right next to the space, creating an eat-in kitchen perfect for family meals. The adjoined family room has a relaxed vibe, complete with a cozy fireplace and comfy leather chairs. Large black-framed windows flood the home with natural light to create an open feel throughout.
