In decorating, some of the most interesting spaces are born from mixing styles and elements that are opposite to each other. One of the best examples of this is when modern meets vintage. The differences in each style, from shapes to textures, can actually compliment each other and create spaces that are unexpected. Vintage elements bring character and charm while modern elements supply a clean, tailored look.
