Combine Antiques and Luxury Together in Your Home

If you love antiques, but you simply want your home to look as luxurious as possible, you need to know how to marry the two types of décor together properly for the perfect look. Below, we will explore some ways that you can easily combine luxury and antiques to create a beautiful interior in your home.

1. Don’t Try to Over Decorate Antiques

Sometimes, homeowners will find an antique they love and they will try to sass it up with decorations and embellishments that are not needed. What happens when you do this is that you overpower the look of the antique and the look becomes gaudy and not simple and beautiful. You should allow the antique to shine on its own and use other elegant decorations throughout the home.

2. Don’t Be Afraid of Contrast with Your Antiques

A little contrast never hurt anyone, so implement it in your home. If you have a fold or brass end table, add a high end white table lamp to it. The contrast between the two colors will draw attention and you will find that each one complements the other.

In addition to adding contrast, do not be afraid to mix styles together either. When you go for a bold look, your antique pieces will work well together and you will find that your items do not clash together.

3. Marry Both Contemporary Pieces and Vintage Antiques

Vintage items are making a wonderful comeback, but you do not want to style your entire home with a vintage theme in mind. If you are looking to keep a contemporary and modern theme in your home, consider add a few vintage décor pieces. For example, if you have a reading room, stick with the contemporary furniture and use an old vintage camera to place on the table as a decoration.

Do not be afraid of antiques and do not be afraid to mesh both luxury and older items together. When it does come to decorating your living room or bedroom, make sure you have a single focal point and that your theme flows together well, as opposed to looking like a mish mosh of items.
