Forget borrowed and blue, designers are cleverly combining antique and modern pieces to create something hot and fresh. One of kind, vintage furniture and accessories add much-needed life and excitement to homes with modern architecture and raw materials surfaces. Stick with your genre of choice – Classical, Baroque, Rococo, or even Art Deco – or assemble a mix utilizing all of your favorites. On the other hand, adding a pop of color to an antique piece instantly brings an air of modernity to a traditional space. You can even opt for a completely translucent faux antique creation to add that whimsical edge to your next design project. Balance is key here – but when that is achieved a truly unique and awe-inspiring room is not far behind.
