Staying Power

Some designers pride themselves on creating trendy, of-the-moment spaces. But Caroline Brackett, an interior designer in Charlotte, N.C., set out to do the exact opposite. "I wanted to love my house for a long time to come," she says. "I'd hate to look around in three years and say, ‘That's so dated!'" Peek inside her 1952 four-bedroom home and you’ll see that every room has a traditional vibe, but that's not to say it's boring. And Caroline isn’t opposed to a mini makeover every now and then. As she says, "Once you have the basics right, it's easier, and a lot less expensive, to make little changes."
