If we had to narrow down one of the things we get asked most frequently on Design Chic, it must be this: How do I incorporate my antiques–the treasures, the relics of my family history and my past–while creating a modern looking home?




We think you’ll agree that Alison Pickart Design has the answer to that question!



A perfect mix of traditional staples and updated furnishings and accessories, her work is the ultimate in good taste.



And the lighting? Oh, the lighting! Each room is better than the last!



Chic, simple holiday decor, anyone? Pickart has that covered, too.



These halls are decked in ultimate style!



The crystal and silver is all in its place–in a butler’s pantry whose color is very now. That’s that perfect blend that Pickart makes look so easy.



Painting the backs of cabinets is one of our favorite things. And an unexpected color–like this lovely lavender–takes it to the next level.



With the holidays here, we have the guest room on our minds. Isn’t this one perfectly appointed?



This light and bright bathroom combines the best of the best of the classics and the brand new for a totally unique look.



Who needs ceilings when you can have skylights? This mudroom is surely one of the favorite spots in the house! As for us, we don’t think we could pick a favorite Alison Pickart space. Each one is more beautiful than the next!

Thank you so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We love spending the holidays with you!
