Modern traditional has never looked as fabulous as through the design board of the multi-talented Elissa Cullman and company. Cullman founded the design firm Cullman and Kravis with her late design partner Hedi Kravis in 1984, and the team has been turning heads ever since. The firm’s spot on the 2012 Architectural Digest 100 is no surprise once you’ve even glanced at these show-stopping rooms. It’s easy to say that these designers’ work is in good taste.
AD described Cullman’s style as one in which “important antiques and art are complemented by snappy, fashion-forward colors and animating flashes of light from decorative mirrors.” Looking at these rooms, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
This room looks deep and rich without that dark feel that can be a bit of a downer. The color choices are perfection, but, it really can’t be said enough: Great lighting takes a space to that next level.
Pink and gray is one of the dreamiest color combinations. And, as Cullman and Kravis expertly proves, it doesn’t have to be girly.
A precisely made bed is the best focal point a room can have!
The touches of blue in this space add pizazz to the formal feel.
Pattern on pattern on pattern is tough to pull off… No surprise that they nailed it!
What a gorgeous place to curl up with a good book!
Everything in this room is drool worthy, but it’s those pendants that really caught our eye.
These architectural details speak for themselves. We’re feeling super inspired!
