Vieux se mélange avec nouveau

I love the look of this simple elegant bed and the way the decorator mixed touches of modern with old. Not too much modern added. Just a snip here and there. 
 The antique bed and mirror intermingled with the modern chrome light and billowing flowering branches mix to create an inviting soothing space. 
 The picture above offer the same characteristics as the first. A dash of modern quietly mixed with antique. I am taken by the look.

I love the pillow mix of pattern and texture. It's just the right finishing touch.

 French design is defined by this technique. 

What's your take on this? Do you like old mixed with new or do you prefer old all together?
Ayez un beau jour

  1. Hi Jill! I do like the old mixed with the new. In my house I have mostly old or handmade. I think old and handmade go very well together. Your pictures are beautiful! Love all the white! Twyla

  2. Thank you Ms. Twyla and Miss Lindsey for dropping by the new blog!00

  3. My heart is with the old. Soft, cozy, ruffles and rust, and lots of neutrals. It all makes for a peaceful bedroom.... :)
