History Repeating

Introducing Design Elements with Character

It is said that often history is worth repeating. When it comes to interior design, there is no rule that all furnishings and accents must come from the same era. Truly interesting spaces are made up of many elements, a mix of old and new. At David Lyall Home & Design, we embrace contrasting styles. Rather than being historically accurate, we encourage our clients to see things from an “antique modern” perspective, where contemporary spaces can be softened and made more suitable for everyday living with the addition of playful antique elements.

Bringing antique elements into a room makes a space feel collected over time.
Think refined rather than rustic. The high-end look of this simple Edison bulb adds an eclectic chic vibe that can work well even in the most traditional space.
