Modern design, Vintage flair

What do you do when you find you have a love of both modern furniture as well as furniture and accessories that are vintage as well? Why not mix the two to create and eclectic feel that has depth, interest and adds a little flair to your space. Here are a few examples of this style!

Here is an idea for a home office or family room that integrates the use of traditional built ins, modern bookcases and 50’s style furniture  and prints to create a fresh and inviting space that isn’t too serious.

By using modern light fixtures and arranging the paintings in a more modern collage you create a modern look with very traditional and vintage items. The pairing of the rustic table and the ultra modern chairs in a variety of colors creates a artsy feel.

Kitchen modern vintage…skies the limit. By using a modern profile floating shelf system and cabinets while keeping a rustic element in the the island and light fixture you create a space that feels more like a trendy downtown bakery, although this kitchen could very easily be in the country. The use of the retro fridge adds a sense of fun!

Ultra antique bench and a very modern arrangement and application for using a mix of vintage and modern frames.

Again, mixing furniture and accessories creating this mixed look

Modern applications of vintage wallpaper as well as the shabby chic effects of the painted furniture and the barn wood headboards creates a light and airy getaway. Instead of a bench, the two very modern tables add interest and additionally allows space for storage …instead of piling pillows why not use old crates or baskets for the little things such as a spare blanket or seasonal items.

A little more mix of vintage and modern but with a more masculine feel. the dark tones and the retro script creates a space with a art gallery feeling flair. I love how they use the unexpected as art, who would have thought a clip board could be pretty!
