Why This Works

Welcome to the series Why This Works... where I highlight a designed space and talk about what I love! This entry was found on pinterest and seamlessly blends old and new, modern and traditional.

I love that this foyer mixes vintage with modern, adding such a lived in, eclectic look! The antique dresser is paired with a gorgeous gold mirror and modern wallpaper. I also love seeing stencil or wallpaper on just one wall- sometimes that's all you need for major impact! The traditional style of the floor and silhouette art on the wall works so well paired with the modern gray paint color and amazing wallpaper. The accessories on the dresser gives a fresh take on an antique piece of furniture. The mix of the modern gold and white works so well paired with the rustic wood of the dresser. Overall, this space works and I wish I could see more!

I agree, I love the antique dresser against the modern wallpaper & the fresh grey & white walls!
