For a timeless look, carefully combine styles

Our goal is to help homeowners create well-designed and functional spaces that fit their lifestyle and budgets. While some clients come to us seeking a traditional look, others are looking for something more modern. The gold standard is to create a timeless look, a space that will stay relevant for years to come. Here's a smart strategy for timeless design: carefully combine elements from different styles. These kitchens, baths, and basements are good examples of mixing and matching to create transitional designs.

Floating shelves quickly add a modern flavor to any design. See more from this industrial meets traditional Edina, MN kitchen.

Floating shelves, a sleek backsplash, and creative lighting give this otherwise traditional kitchen a current edge. See the rest of this classic kitchen with a modern twist.

Mission-style furniture and design first became popular at the turn of the 20th century. Warm wooden cabinets with simple, unadorned fronts are typical of this “less is more” philosophy. This open kitchen conversion combines Mission-style cabinets with modern stainless steel elements and a central island with a sculptural shelf.
