Not all the time you have to match elements of design to provide aesthetically pleasing space, sometimes, you have to mix in between contrasting colors and styles for fresh, vibrant and new look though it can be difficult, complicated and tremendous.
Inattentive planning can lead to trouble and chaos so there are experts that can help your opposing ideas come together in one. It’s time to break the comfort zone and the word “simple”—like mixing modern and traditional theme instead of sticking only to one.
Since it’s new in the design field, it is rare to find an interior with mix of two like modern and traditional. With great designer tricks, you can prove that it is possible that opposite styles can create harmony and pleasing space.
To mix modern and traditional in your home:
Distinguish Modern and Traditional
Brand new design ideas are shared fast pace through technology—the internet making it harder to distinguish the two styles since the modern ones are mostly shared and used in the design industry (kitchen modern design, modern living room). Let’s freshen up our minds and remember the distinction of traditional and modern before getting started
Balance old and new
Old will meet new and all you have to do is keep them at peace together. You can have vintage floorings, walls, cladding while bringing up modern and brand new furniture and lightnings: pendant lights. Don’t stick on one aspect and be bias, remember your goals not to be confused with what type of furnitures and furnishings you’ll put.
You can also combine two styles in flooring: wooden traditional flooring and white modern tiles. The trick is great and best when you want to divide the space without any additional interior walls or divider.
Mix traditional and modern furniture
Traditional Furnitures never goes out of fashion: this includes furnitures out of wood and leather like sofa, wooden dining table, china cabinet; And so does life wouldn’t be complete without metallic designs— a glint of gold or sparkling silver like glass tables, handles on chairs. Combine traditional and modern furniture to create unique style.
Accents and other decor addds to the quirkiness of your combined style. Be confident with your personal choice and never hesitate to mix and match them.
Choose the right colors
Though it can be hard, still insist to pick the right palette and stand for it. There is no wide distinction of hues between traditional and modern, just the shade, tone and tint. Traditional colors are darker while modern are lighter and pop. For example is for the base of red: pastel pink can be seen on modern while retro and exotic red on the traditional. You can choose primary colors for painting and upholsteries and adjust later on whether it should be brighter or darker—depend on the other elements and the space.
