This Arts & Crafts Home Has A Modern Take On Traditional Style

Louise Novinger Grant, a commercial litigation lawyer, describes her style as “conservative, cautious and classic.” But when it was finally time to decorate the Arts and Crafts–style home she shares with her oil-and-gas consultant husband, Bob Grant, and their three grown children, she was ready to take risks. Working with designer James McIntyre and Ronald Bills of McIntyre Bills, Louise was inspired by the work of American designer Darryl Carter, who favors relaxed, old-world spaces. “His interiors have a minimal approach to traditional furniture,” says James. “And I like the way he mixes old objets and antique bowls in crisp, clean rooms,” adds Louise. Like Darryl, they aimed for a balance of new and old when decorating. Click through for a look inside the modern-meets-traditional space.
