Cottage Living Style
How To Mix Old and New
Modern and traditional. Vintage and contemporary. They may sound like strange bedfellows, but when it comes to decorating with style, the only rule is there are no rules.
Re-cover Old Finds
Transform furniture with fabric that adds style and personality. In this dining room, simple white slipcovers bring a modern look to basic wooden chairs, while a wide silk stripe gives new life to armchairs found at a flea market. A black dining table with turned legs bridges the room's traditional and contemporary features.
Host chairs, placed at each end of a table, break the ordinary rhythm of standard dining rooms. Get a fresher, more collected-over-time look by mixing styles and ages―pair antique with sleek.
