I love when I see a room that looks...well like a piece of art...

what I mean by that is..it doesn't look like the typical room...its artsy..

What do you think makes this room look interesting? 

The mix of styles, mid century, French, a little industrial...
or the balance of objects?

Designer Betsey Brown has a way of  bringing everything together...

Notice how she plays with a traditional frame by coupling it with a contemporary art piece...


she successfully balances the room by
creating a collection of eclectic pieces...

I love how she adds an element of surprise...

the lamp is the icing on the cake...a contemporary lamp on an industrial table...

notice the curve in the leg of the table mimics the shape of the lamp...

Lindsey Bond Meadows is another designer that has an interesting way of bringing things together.

I love how she added this contemporary/industrial looking lounge chair with an antique sofa...

Lindsey uses contemporary fabrics to tie the room together...

She creates a balance and gives this space a transitional feel....

To achieve this look...think out of the box....

straight arm and leg pieces of furniture help balance the few pieces that have more of an antique curve style...

contemporary fabrics on your antique chairs will give it a modern vibe...
try adding organic and simple objects as display...

OK..so...and there's always a so...

have you tried mixing it up in your own home...
and if so... 

what did you think?

I hope your inspired as much as I am....
now go try it!
