Create the perfect backdrop for your design. Find the balance between furniture and decoration. Lighting fixtures are one of the easiest ways to combine old with new. If you're not sure how to combine antique and modern furniture, consider focusing on the dazzling possibilities offered by reclaimed pendant lamps or an ornate Art Nouveau-style Tiffany glass chandelier in an otherwise contemporary space.
In the same way, a 17th century French gilded mirror adds instant character and reflects light beautifully. If you're trying to combine vintage wall decor, modern furniture, and accessories with other styles in your home, be sure to create breathing space. While there's nothing better than the rich patina of a quality antique or vintage piece in terms of aesthetics and value, the truth is that not all antiques are valuable or should be preserved in their original state. Creating an eclectic home decor style by mixing modern and vintage elements opens up a world of design possibilities.
On the contrary, displaying old or vintage works of art, vignettes, and maps in a modern room is a good way to bring the design to life. It will not detract from modernity to the overall interior scheme, but will create a harmonious balance. Antiques often display refined craftsmanship that's harder to come by today, and feature intricate wood carvings, marquetry, or decorative ornaments that you won't find in today's common furniture. If you are looking to create the maximum impact in a modern room with an antique piece, go for a striking large-scale piece, such as an antique wardrobe, a baroque or art deco headboard, or a huge vintage rustic table.
While multiple patterns, bold details, and bright colors are all the rage, you can make up for them with neutral colors to keep the room from looking cluttered or cluttered. Use a hanging shelf for an old decor, or choose some vintage ornaments to put on a larger shelf. Whether it's in the living room, kitchen, or home office, try placing modern chairs on a vintage table. If you don't know how to mix old and modern styles, one of the easiest ways is to add a vintage rug.
Especially if you're mixing bold patterns and modern vintage pieces, make sure the room layout, furniture, and wall art are proportionate and flowing.
