I love mixing modern with vintage in my home decor - it adds great dimension and layer to the design.
It's been a year since we've moved into our new home - I'm finally getting around to the dining room,
which has become the perfect place to experiment with adding layers of styles and eras to my decor.
I love the chandelier - it's original to our home which was built in 1955 - and it's a perfect juxtaposition with the more modern art we have on the walls.
There's a good mix happening here with the modern chairs and the vintage look of these oversized candlesticks. The bench under the art gives a nod to the candlesticks since it's got a vintage look to it.
And although my husband doesn't like the multi-colored print because it's not an original piece of art (I'm currently making a mustache with my finger under my nose and making a snooty face) I LOVE it because it brings in every single color and ties in my black chairs that I almost got rid of. I guess we can't always agree… but I can always win - it's staying up!
