Barclay Butera’s Book | The New Traditional

The New Traditional
Renowned designer Barclay Butera’s tips for a modern, uplifting interior design.

Ever get tired of needing to throw out an entire room in order to make way for a new interior design trend? Or maybe you have items you cherish, but Aunt Nancy’s vintage china set just doesn’t seem to have a place in your otherwise modern home. It’s a common problem—interior design trends don’t often mesh with yesterday’s styles. 

Prestigious home designer Barclay Butera has found the perfect way to flawlessly integrate traditional, transitional and contemporary–or as he likes to call it, “yours, mine and ours” with his recipe available in his book, “The New Traditional.”

“Good design to me is a combination of yours, mine and ours. I believe there should be history in a room, whether it be a piece of art, a vintage rug or a family heirloom,” Butera says.

In his book, “The New Traditional,” Butera gives the details on using things that bring joy, like a family heirloom, and integrating it into a beautifully modern look, emphasizing alluring architecture, luxurious furnishings and intricate craftsmanship. 

“Good design to me is a combination of yours, mine and ours. I believe there should be history in a room, whether it be a piece of art, a vintage rug or a family heirloom,” Butera says.

The book features interiors from Butera’s show home collection in places like Newport Beach and Corona del Mar, Calif., as well as Park City, Utah, for a total of 15 show homes to help you visually find inspiration for your own abode. In these homes, you’ll see an artful inclusion of heritage pieces that blend seamlessly alongside bold textures, distinctive furnishings and pattern-on-pattern fabrics, which are all common elements found in Butera’s ICONIC style.

One of the most important things to remember in creating a fresh twist to your classic design is to surround yourself with things you love, as Butera strongly believes in the power of living in a beautiful environment.

If you’re ready to redecorate and bring loving vibes to your home, you can find “The New Traditional” on Amazon, available in both a physical hardback copy and Kindle e-book.
