Intermixing New and Old Is So Now

Design Inspiration

What is it about those old lines, patterns, and colors that were so very hip when we were kids? You know, the vintage design-type that even now calls to us on a very emotional level, not unlike reminiscing to an old, favorite song. More than ever, decor is intermingling our past with our present, and the results are divinely unique. Mix a mid-century mod lounge chair with a sleek modern table and lamps, and you’re golden; it’s hard to miss when intermixing the old with the new. Check out today’s “Design Candy” and enjoy looking back to what is so now.
