Shop the Look of a Contemporary Family Home



When a young couple decided to relocate from Manhattan to New Canaan, CT, they set about marrying their urban aesthetic with their new house's more traditional lines. Décor Aid lead designer Alex Caratachea quickly sussed out the situation and came up with a game plan. “They love the modern aesthetic,” says Caratachea. “But everything needed to be more in keeping with the architecture. We achieved that by adding softer accents and textures—a mix of traditional, transitional and contemporary.” Shop the look of their contemporary home, as featured in the January 2017 issue of CTC&G, with a selection of amazing design finds.
