Bring in the new year with 2017’s top interior design trends. Along with your own personal resolutions comes the transformation you want to see in your home. A direction you can’t go wrong with is the marriage of vintage and modern in a space. The tendencies of modern style to be clean, monochromatic, and simplistic, pair beautifully with the typically unique and detailed elements of vintage decor. If your space is needing a face-lift this year, consider this pairing to bring the space back to life. This technique is used to pull forward accent colors and helps bring cohesiveness to a space. Give your home some character and check out these moments where vintage met modern.
Take for example this combination of simple and modern light fixtures with the vintage chicness of a gold framed work of art. The detail of this classic frame compliments the subtle warmth of the lamps on either side. The rhythm of patterns or lack-there-of in the modern decor is contrasted by the ornate nature of the antiqued gold frame.
In some cases you can even find a piece that joins the two styles itself. This mirror has an art deco curvature that most anyone can appreciate. Not to mention it is paired beautifully with a crystal light just above it to add to its delicate unique presence in the space.
In this space the designer has balanced a light modern setting with a vintage chic chandelier. The rich gold finish with elegant crystal accents make this statement piece a perfect addition to the bright and clean space surrounding it. Don’t hesitate to pair contrasting elements in your home. After all, opposites attract, right?
