Words by Alykhan Velji of Alykhan Velji Designs.

In my new home, warm, rich and textural elements will be highlighted with traditional details such as panel moulding and modern lighting. I love playing with textures, and a New Traditional look is layered with natural elements and unexpected touches.

Modern lighting€”like Matthew McCormick€™s Mila sconce€”adds that perfect juxtaposition to the warm finishes.

A classic chevron floor is as traditional as it gets. This Divine Flooring hardwood reminds me of old European apartments that I have stayed in and I love it. The white oak is a modern nod to the space and adds all the texture.

Go back to the classic bridge faucet, like this lovely number from Brizo. This is an elevated look from the single levers that we are so used to seeing. The gorgeous brass finish makes it the perfect addition to the New Traditional look.

Deep terracottas (Sherwin-Williams€™s Roycroft Adobe) and rich greens (SW€™s Olympic Range) are the perfect combination to create spaces that are warm and inviting. Think about painting walls and cabinets in these gorgeous colours for some drama.

It€™s all about bringing in natural stone (or the look) for the countertops. Granite is making a big comeback and is perfect for this look. I also love the look of the Dekton Khalo Stonika. The beautiful soft creams mixed in with earthy tones provides an excellent focal point in any space.
