Mixing the Old with the New

I love the look of mixing in new and old things in a room. And who doesn't have some old things ? What makes this look work?

  • repetition in color, a natural palette works great- the living and seating room featured above uses beautiful sand tone colors with the touches of blue repeated throughout. This color selection lets each individual piece in the room stand out.
  • using modern art as a contrast to more traditional decor- notice the art work juxtaposed with the wooden spoked wheels
  • modern accent furniture really stands out when used along side traditional soft side furniture- note the damask covered chair with the modern cork table.
  • keep a clean simple look

Hope you enjoy mixing it up!
