2. Vintage or Deconstructed Furniture

The most pleasing room designs tend to sport a mix of old and new, and sometimes it is simply the suggestion of old that can effectively enliven such a mix. This newly constructed chair (RH) with a deconstructed style is suggestive of a vintage one which has been stripped.

Have you ever dragged home a vintage chair and removed upholstery for a similar look? I have always wanted to try that!

3. Family Photos in the Stairway

It’s such a nostalgic gesture, and to modernize a very traditional home decor practice, consider calming the mood with black and white photos to unify them and framing them in a singular style.

So many living rooms in modern farmhouses around the web seem to sport beachy white slipcovered sofas or more feminine designs. This farmhouse living room’s masculine leather tufted Chesterfield sofa adds traditional style and a rugged handsomeness which can stand up to years of use and enjoyment.

13. Tranquil Paint Colors

The homeowners used two different grays from Benjamin Moore for the first floor. In rooms where there is less natural light or no natural light, it is often preferable to use a lighter shade.

    I’m strangely (for me) drawn to the pistachio paint color . I’ve pinned it and although I’m sure my cabinets will never end up with such a fun and unexpected color -I’m perfectly happy with my white ones but……. I’m thinking my sister in law may just fall in love with the green and these pictures may just put her over the edge to pull the trigger and make it happen in her home .

      It’s a beautiful green that is so different from what we typically see! Hope she likes it. I’ll be spending time in that kitchen tomorrow. 🙂
