Interior designer Kerri Watson shares her know-how for combining opposite styles for a seamless look.
First published in May 2012.Kerri Watson loves uniting contrasting styles. She shares her tips on creating a cohesive look.Keep the exterior finishes consistent to create unity. Wood siding, wood-framed windows and a metal roof can help pull together a traditional design and a modern addition.Mix modern and traditional with a unifying colour palette.Consistent surface finishes and colour schemes prevent a disjointed feel throughout the home—from the bed- and bathrooms to the living area.Use a palette that complements the view.
