Traditional interior design is one of the most popular design styles of all time as it continues to be the most effective way to lay out a home. Some may dismiss it as old timey, safe, or bland but what’s so brilliant about the classic look is the way it can easily infuse with other styles transforming traditional rooms into modern spaces.
We were thrilled to welcome Leah Sampson of @leahrachelinteriors for yet another epic #DesignerSeries session last month. Her design to-do list included styling the Rhys Power Sofa and the Meadow Dining both in gray. A wife and a mom to four young children, Leah lives in a small town just outside of San Diego, California. Her passion for interior design started years ago when she and her husband renovated their very own travel trailer whilst sharing the journey on her Instagram account. After much traction, other RV and travel trailer owners caught on and started sliding into Leah’s DMs looking to get advice and inquiries on renovation and design. Her good eye for interior design translated so much that she ended up starting a small business remodeling RV’s and travel trailers. She has since designed and remodeled her 1980’s home and continue to thrive in both her business and personal life.
Upon Leah’s arrival and warm pleasantries in the studio, we quickly learned of Leah’s concept plans on styling both sets which later became a reoccurring theme throughout the shoot – conventional modern design. The look is a range of modern, traditional, rustic, a touch of glam and coastal with the common theme of having mixed style. There’s always been something special about blending traditional and modern styles together. Keep on reading for Leah’s take on conventional and minimalist traditional home design.
