Old Meets the New: Antiques in Modern Spaces

I love the look of antiques and modern designs converging in a space. Antiques bring charm and character, while modern sensibilities offer a clean, fresh palette. When the two come together, magic happens.

If you feel like your home is lacking character, one of the best things you can do is check out flea markets and thrift stores. Some of the best finds can be discovered there and it always feels like it’s one-of-a-kind. Even if it needs a little refurbishing, there’s little a can of spray paint can’t fix.

The end result is something truly special that will make your home feel unique and more personal.

Here are 10 examples of antiques in modern spaces. They show how even just one or two antiques can make a space come alive with character.
