traditional meets modern in the glendale hills

Glendale’s Verdugo Woodlands neighborhood is a quiet, peaceful spot filled with lovely traditional homes. We recently had the opportunity to stage our second Woodlands home, currently occupied by a family of three. The family owned some lovely antiques which we were able to use in our staging. We added some modern elements to create a transitional space that appeals to all.

The space has dark wood floors, soft wall colors and lots of original details like moldings and a great fireplace.

We started with the entry way, in which we used the family’s Craftsman console table accented with our accessories.

We styled the living room with an off-white sofa and matching lounge chair, a transitional console table and pops of orange and gray.

A glass-top cocktail table virtually disappears in the room, but offers the gleam of glass. A mirror over the console bounces light around the room.

A pair of red foo dogs on the mantel tie into the deep orange pillow on the chair and the orange throw on the sofa.

A light aqua porcelain lamp is a great complement to the orange in the room.

A view over the sofa shows the entry way and the second bedroom. The homeowner’s vintage milking stool serves as a small side table.

A view into the dining room. We styled an existing antique table with a glass lamp, a stack of books and a handwoven basket.

We paired a traditional dining table with four long slipcovered chairs and the homeowner’s matching dining chairs as head chairs. A plate wall is seen in the background.

A china cabinet is filled with white dishes, a la Martha Stewart.

We styled the den off the living room to be a cozy library/man cave. We set up a little bar area on an antique marble top table and styled a bookcase with an ample amount of books and interesting antiquities. A wingback chair and tripod lamp increase the cozy factor. We put a neutral sisal rug underneath it all.

A French advertising poster brings rich color into the room.

A decoy duck was the perfect touch.

The master bedroom’s traditional four-poster bed just needed to wake up a little. Red lamps with curvy bases, natural baskets under the bed and a fresh color palette add just the right modern touches.

The second bedroom was treated to a soft color scheme of white, gray and gold.

A French Provincial style dresser inspired the choice of the Eiffel Tower print.

The nicely remodeled bathroom needed only a few accessories.

We put a black pedestal table and ladder back chairs into the breakfast nook and styled the tabletop with yellow, white and black dishes and pottery.
