The October 2010 issue of Traditional Home Magazine arrived in my mailbox this week and I eagerly flipped through it to see what was in store. I was immediately impressed by the feature on Washington D.C. designer Paul Corrie. His living room, shown below, strikes the perfect balance of combining contemporary furnishings with antiques--something I am drawn to more and more these days. No trends here, no clutter, no particular look; just elegant simplicity. You can barely see it in this photo, but the flat screen television is neatly mounted on the wall above an antique Swedish cabinet.

And by the way, this room makes me want to ditch the ho-hum matching lamps and end tables on either side of my sofa (are they even referred to as "end tables" anymore?).
I won't spoil the fun by posting the additional photos from the magazine. You can see them for yourself by visiting Traditional Home Magazine here and also at Paul Corrie's website here. Michele of My Notting Hill also did two posts about Paul Corrie's interiors, which you can find here.
