There is nothing like modern home design. It’s clean, creative and fresh. If you are a minimalist by nature, than you are probably drawn to modern design. One thing that I’ve noticed about some modern decor is that it can tend to feel too cold.
If you like modern design but you like feeling homey and warm, you probably are trying to figure out how to create a space that you love. One suggestion is adding vintage elements to give a room some character and warmth. Above we see a vintage armoire piece placed in a modern living room. It totally works and gives off such a cool vibe. Also the of the color of the piece fits perfectly with the sofa and pillows.
In this dining space, we see several vintage elements. The brass light fixture fits nicely with the modern table and chairs. Also, you see that there is a mix of new modern chairs with vintage modern chairs.
Here is another vintage cabinet. This teal piece looks fantastic paired with gray fabric, which is always a more modern option. And it also looks great with the modern desk lamp. Pieces like this tell wonderful stories in a space. And if you are decorating a modern room, only use one to two pieces like this so that you don’t create a flea market look.
In this small office, the owners have paired an aged, vintage desk with a modern office chair. It totally works and creates the best of both worlds! Adding a modern desk lamp is also a great accent for a vintage desk.
One last advice for mixing vintage with modern is try and find a vintage piece that is totally out of the box. When placing it in a minimalist space, it will completely wow your guests!
