Modern, meet Traditional

Seems every where I look, design blogs and magazines are bombarded with wedding features. I figured I'd do my own twist on the topic: marrying traditional with modern. A common issue that always comes up at my internship is the difference in taste between married clients. One always loves modern design while the other opts for traditional. How do you marry the two aesthetics together in a cohesive manner?

Recently, there has been a new trend in over-dying traditional, Turkish rugs. It takes a classic piece with traditional designs and modernizes it with bright, funky, new colors. I adore them! You can find them anywhere right now since they're such a big trend, but ABC Carpet happens to be having a sale at the moment.

This faux wood wall covering by Nobilis is a great choice for something with both a modern and class aesthetic. It takes the idea of traditional wood wall panelling and turns it into a modern, texture-less wallpaper.

And of course....when in doubt, paint paint paint. One of the easiest ways to add a splotch of modern to a traditional room is to paint with bright and loud colors - be it the walls or even the furniture. It's also probably the most inexpensive way too!
