In this new Craftsman-inspired hous e, interior designer Shazalynn Cavin– Winfrey deftly shows how period furniture may be paired successfully with contemporary pieces. Upholstered furniture with clean lines, much of it designed by her, is harmoniously used in rooms otherwise furnished with reproduction Arts & Crafts oak.
