Something old, something new

The most livable interiors are those that can’t be pinned to a specific era or decade, but integrate elements from the history of home design. The desire to mix old and new can be sparked by the architecture (or lack thereof) of your home, an heirloom, or a thrift store crush. Here are some décor ideas that will help you mix old and new furniture to create a layered interior that transcends time.
