Modern Art + Federal Style

I've featured a house from the River Oaks neighborhood of Houston before, and today I couldn't resist sharing pictures from the latest issue of Architectural Digest of a home from the same neighborhood. The house is decorated in the American federal style, but possibly my favourite touch from Elissa Cullman's interiors is the mixture of classical architectural features with modern art. The bold pieces really pop in their traditionalist settings. It's a combination I hadn't really thought of before, but I think the mix is perfect. Also, on an unrelated note, I love pretty much everything about their kitchen- the pendant light fixtures, the millwork ceiling, and the sleek lines of those cabinets.
