Recently M3ld designed a dining area for Laziz Kitchen in Salt Lake Citys Central 9th Neighborhood.Here they mixed midcentury-modern decor with a vintage Lebanese motif. Melding the personality of the food they serve and the heritage of one of the owners with the mid-modern aesthetic they love. Andrea says modern designs mixe well with other styles because the lines are clean and it don't compete with more ornate or traditional lines.
Andrea also says that art transcends style, modern or traditional. You can certainly put modern art pieces in a traditional space and vice versa. Keep in mind that Art stands on its own.
Mixing textiles between styles has also become a common design trend. You can easily add modern looking textiles with more traditional ones, like a gold geometric pillow with a traditional damask pattern. A fun way to successfully mix different styles together is by using pieces that are more traditional and that have a very modern finish, like this Queen Anne dining table you see that has this red lacquer finish on it. The juxtaposition is fun and makes the space more interesting and more personal to the homeowner.
