"I am for a harmony of opposites. Ancient and modern, shiny and matte, primitive and civilized, serious and witty." - Betsy Brown, Designer

Never be afraid to mix modern pieces with antiques! Pairing contrasting styles makes your home stay fresh and interesting! Two opposites accentuate the other and create beautiful harmony!

 

Pairing modern chairs with an antique table makes a great casual and high style eating area..


 

 

 

Furniture with clean lines paired with ornate architectural details is nothing less of stunning...


 

 

 

Antique setee with modern/minimal art just screams high end...


 

Elaborate details with classic modern Saarinen table and chairs is a definite do...


 

Mixing old and warm with new and cool = simply sublime...


 

... and there is nothing wrong with a little unexpected lucite in your life... 


 

Add an antique Asian screen above an otherwise dull bedroom to make it fresh and exciting...


 

Rustic, glam, minimal and modern pieces create perfect balance...


 

The idea is to create balance with extra ornate pieces paired with minimal/clean pieces... this vignette is a perfect example...


 

Have a wonderful week!
