mixing old with new

modern and soft contemporary interiors are here to stay, however, the best way to keep your design from being too sterile is to mix texture and patina into the clean, crisp lines of a modern interior. Modern dining chairs mix beautifully with an old farm table;

a modern square-arm chaise sitting upon a ikat patterned rug; paint grandma’s Chippendale chair cobalt blue or Chinese red. Have less of a thematic interior and instead build layers of eclectic combinations of architecture and design. Give yourself the freedom to mix 18th century design into the 21th century in unexpected ways. Make sure your home reflects your individual interests and bring a variety of styles together in a personal, non-formulaic mix, with an emphasis on quality and detail.
