Modern Meets Classic

In this second look at our Florida project, we share the living room, where modern meets classic. (See the first look here!) This couple wanted to mix bold patterns and contemporary pieces with classic antiques, and Dianne knew just what to do!

She started with a classic couch in a neutral pattern. The nailheads add a modern touch and the pillows lend a traditional feel. The neutral color allows for this timeless couch to work as the couple’s taste evolves. The pillows can be replaced with bright, bold patters or with neutrals…the options are endless.

Dianne added classic Louis XVI Bergeres for additional seating. The style of these chairs is always in style, but the bold print makes them fun and adds interest to the room.

The tables range from timeless marble-top pieces to a contemporary gold & antiqued mirror side table. The simplicity of the gold side table allows for a different color without overwhelming the space, and the geometric shape echoes the pattern in the chair.

An easy way to bring a classic feel into a room is with a traditional rug. Dianne paired it with beautiful lamps that tie in the red of the rug.

And of course no room is complete without accessories! Figurines and fresh flowers make a room feel lived in and welcoming.
