The contrast of new and old has always been captivating to me – especially when it comes to home decor. The mix of rustic and modern pieces creates such an unexpectedly cohesive aesthetic. The warmth and comfortability of vintage finishes complement the hard lines and glamour of the more modern aspects.
I’ve been getting inspired by vintage rugs lately for that exact reason. The intricate, warm patterns create such a beautiful base for minimalistic furniture and accents. As for accessories, the mixing of the rug patterns with other more geometric patterns plays with the eyes and adds vibrancy.
On the other hand, keeping all other aspects of the room neutral allows the designs in the rug to pop, creating a nice focal point that can then be complemented with coordinating color pops.
