How to Combine Modern & Traditional Interiors?

Perhaps you dream of a contemporary home but are sentimental about the past. You love the grandeur of old stately homes but need an interior that works for the modern family. Well help is at hand. Combining both styles can and does work really well.

Including vintage finds and accessories to your modern room will add depth and a richness to your home. The mixture of art, fabrics, objects, furnishings, wall mirrors, ornaments and furniture can be a fun style to produce. For some, combining old and new interiors comes naturally, maybe it’s a style that has evolved over many years, but for others it requires thought, research and maybe some advice!

Determine your overall theme. Try and think of words or styles that come to mind that best describe what you think you are trying to achieve. Here’s a few:

Rustic interiors: A style that exposes to raw natural materials, and can sometimes feature more traditional ways of decorating. This style brings a sense of practicality and purpose to objects normally hidden away.

Grand interiors: A word that is used to describe something that is splendid or magnificent. Derived from the old French word ‘grand’ meaning ‘great’. The word grandeur is used to describe things that are distinguished, extraordinary, and impressive. Be impressed by the grandeur things in life!

Modern interiors: This is a word that relates to the present times, current, the twenty first-century. Something that is characterised by the most up-to-date techniques, equipment, methods or accessories.

Even the smallest of spaces can be big on style. Use your imagination look out for creative design tricks to reinvent your home. In a small space everything can become a focal point. Let each item have meaning, impact and allow it to make sense.

Make a mirror your focal point. Choose between a modern mirror or a traditional framed mirror.

Here are a couple of combining old and new interior ideas:

  • Deep ornate coving while the rest of the room features clean lines, smooth flat walls and soft low key tones.
  • Decorative framed wall mirror against a plain wall that also features modern furnishings.
  • Wood panelling around the room, while featuring simple modern furniture and furnishings like lamps and pictures.
