Not too long ago the formula for decorating was: old house- antique furniture, contemporary house- modern furniture. Well, those days are gone. Today designers are putting mid-century modern in an eighteenth century farmhouse or wonderful antiques in a modern setting. If you plan to take the plunge, keep in mind the shapes, colors, textures, and patterns of the mix. Other than that, just have fun!
Bedroom traditional– furnished with an antique Louis XVl fautieuil chair and converted oil lamp, the bedroom embraces a modern attitude with the queen size platform bed by Bo Concept, Maine Cottage Furniture quilt, lucite table and West Elm rug.
Bedroom modern– sleek white cabinets soften with an antique sleigh bed, Eleanor’s Ribbon bed linens and 19th century bronze Japanese vase.
