New American1 of 19
By Martine Bury
With modern twists on traditional all-American decor, six U.S. cities are getting a fresh new design style.
Los Angeles2 of 19
"L.A. style is about creating a casually cool mix of pieces in spacious architectural rooms that take advantage of the city's indoor-outdoor lifestyle." —Jamie Bush, Jamie Bush & Co.
Hard Elements3 of 19
The copper base and smoked glass of this side table adhere to a neutral, nature-friendly palette, while the architectural ribbing is contemporary and eye catching.
Modern Marvels4 of 19
Choose pieces that take cues from modernist design. "I used this arm Alma chair in a midcentury modern home just outside Los Angeles," says Jamie. "We floated the piece in the middle of the living room because, like art or a great sculpture, it looks great at any angle."

Aspen5 of 19
"The landscape is so dramatic, you don't need to bring the mountain elements inside in such a staged or overt way. Using modern neutral tones and relaxed fabrics, new Aspen decor illustrates the laid-back lifestyle of the ski town without detracting from the big views." —Barbara Mullen, Caroline-Edwards, Inc.
Into the Woods6 of 19
Timber can be good for more than flooring and traditional wood beams. A tree-stump table brings in the natural texture of the great outdoors in a way that's fresh and modern.
Soft Spots7 of 19
On a cold, gray day nothing feels better than a cozy carpet underfoot. With its chic geometric print, this plush shag rug offers an unexpected alternative to the standard bearskin rug.
New Orleans8 of 19
"In New Orleans, home fashions have traditionally echoed its Creole past with hints of Paris, Versailles and Port au Prince. The new 'Fresh Creole' updates the look with less clutter, lighter fabrics and artistic contemporary accents." —Kerri McCaffety, photographer and author of New Orleans, New Elegance.
Golden Oldies9 of 19
Regal accents nod to NOLA's illustrious history. Just remember, a little goes a long way. Choose one or two statement pieces to transform a room without overwhelming the space.
Clear Cuts10 of 19
Mod transparent elements, like an iconic Louis Ghost chair, play off more ornate pieces to keep things current.

New York, NY11 of 19
"The classic New York City home is a prewar building with hardwood floors, decorative moldings and a touch of urban sophistication. Using eclectic pieces, we can reflect not only the owner's individual tastes, but also the melting pot of cultures that New York City is made of." —Cece Stelljes, Revamp Interior Design
Haute Seats12 of 19
The form of these slipper chairs may be simple, but ornate wooden legs and a bold fabric keep it fresh.
SHOP NOW: Jayson Home Zondra chair, $680
Photo Finish13 of 19

Porch-style living inspires South Carolina's interior design. We love feeling connected with nature even when we're indoors." —Ginger Brewton, Ginger Brewton Interiors

Miami, FL17 of 19
"The city's spirit is colorful, beachy, light and bright. Interior designs echo this aura, and draw inspiration from faraway places to reflect the region's Latin American influence." —Juan Carlos Arcila-Duque, Arcila-Duque Furniture Interiors Inc.
Grand Gestures18 of 19
The city's Latin American style is all about mixing Old World with new glamour. The bold canopy and weathered burlap of this porter's chair brings a sense of drama, history and tradition to the room.
