MIX­ING IT UP

Arts and Crafts Homes - - THE GUILD -

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.

The trick is to be aware of pro­por­tion and scale, Cavin– Win­frey says, and to re­mem­ber that the oak wood is in­deed a color in the scheme. She points out that ar­chi­tec­tural el­e­ments de­ter­mine the dom­i­nant style of a house or a room; fur­ni­ture is ephemeral.
