Modern on the Inside Counts, Too

Calling all residents of Edwardians, ranch houses, and those challenging Victorians: If your heart beats for modern, don't miss these inspiring examples of seamlessly integrated modern updates to an array of traditional homes.

With its architectural history reaching back to the ancient Greeks, Syracuse, Sicily has plenty of old bones. In 2001, native sons Francesco and Alberto bought a crumbling 18th century building. Seven years and an UNESCO permitting process later, the Moncada brothers moved in. The modern interior, with furniture of Francesco’s design as well as classics bought on eBay, is a perfect counterpoint to the weight of the town’s history. The bedroom shown here is open and playful. See more ideas for modernizing a classic residence here.
