While a modern decoration scheme can offer an airy and refreshing ambience, traditional sensibilities also contribute to an elegant, sophisticated look that can withstand the test of time. To enjoy the best of both worlds, take note of a transitional style where modernity meets classicism, resulting in a timeless, cohesive design.
Consider blending a mix of light and sleek appointments to offset floral patterns and refined moulding, tying in the two seemingly disparate styles in an unexpected way. One of the most practical methods to achieve the look would be reupholstering a modern piece – say an armchair – in statement-making nostalgic prints.
