Antique and trendy mix

I like it when I find something that looks a bit different. This apartment is very grown up and sophisticated. I really love the antique and trendy mix. You have everything from stylish antique chandeliers and paintings to trendy chairs and cactus plants. The bold black furniture looks amazing next to the white walls. The trendy gold on the chandeliers and picture frames make this place look just perfect, at least to me.

You can find unique antiques on sites like here and here. There are also lots of auctions out there. I used to go to bric-à-bracs in France and there were always lot of antiques. I think it’s great to mix old and new as it makes homes a bit more interesting.

I think most people would have expected a fancy bookshelf here, but why not stack books in piles on the floor. I think it looks great.

    The beautiful architecture just compliments the gorgeous decor so well (and I always love a mix of antiques and contemporary pieces)!

      That’s very true, Kevin. It wouldn’t have looked the same without the nice details.
