By mixing antique pieces with modern décor, you can create just the right balance of shape, texture and style. But if done haphazardly, the result can look disorganized and messy.
So before you begin, decide on the overall look you’re going for — modern with antique accents or vice versa? Minimalist or shabby chic? Do you have a color theme?
Keeping your goals in mind, here a few ideas to help get you started:
- Place antique stools next to a marble kitchen countertop or vintage chairs near a contemporary sofa.
- Contrast modern décor with Oriental rugs.
- Highlight rustic furniture with an antique coffee table or wall décor.
