Designer Paloma Contreras’s guide to pairing traditional style with modern design to create classic interiors with a touch of glamour and an infusion of color Beloved designer Paloma Contreras is back with her second book, The New Classic Home, in which she focuses her sought-after design expertise on one of the most desired yet difficult tasks in decorating: how to design a space that successfully mixes traditional and modern elements. How does one bridge the gap between such different concepts? By walking readers through her four main techniques—Color, Texture & Pattern, Scale & Proportion, and Tension—Contreras demonstrates how to successfully pair seemingly disparate pieces from different eras and styles to create harmonious, timeless, and balanced interiors. With spectacular photography and personalized design tips, TheNew Classic Home divulges how to blend vintage pieces into even the most contemporary settings, highlight favorite elements of any architectural style, freshen classic silhouettes, and create layered, interesting spaces that always include an element of modern surprise with a touch of elegant antiquity.

Paloma Contreras is an award-winning interior designer, shop owner, and author based in Houston, Texas. She has been repeatedly named to the prestigious ELLE Decor A-List of the top interior designers in the world. Her first book, Dream Design Live, was published by Abrams in September 2018. Paloma is known for her modern take on traditional style–gravitating towards classic silhouettes and timeless pieces paired with a touch of glamour and an infusion of color. Paloma is also the proprietor of the curated home goods store, Paloma & Co, and recently launched a lighting collection with Visual Comfort & Co. She lives in Houston, Texas with her husband Fabian and young daughter Margot.
