Four tips for combining traditional and modern decor

You might be interested in the concept of bringing in new discount window treatments, furnishings and wall decor to transform your space from traditional to modern, but what happens when you don't want to purge? After all, it can be tough to part with some of the old heirlooms you have lying around the house.

Luckily, one of the hottest trends in interior design these days is combining traditional with modern styles. Here are some tips on how to do so in any living space in your home.

1. Choose neutral window treatments.
A room with an eclectic interior design could use something to anchor its overall decor - window treatments are the perfect items to do so. Think about bringing in wood blinds or white shades that bring the space down to earth.

2. Mix hard and soft edges.
House Beautiful magazine encourages the mixing of soft and hard edges to create a unique look that blends traditional and modern pieces seamlessly. Combining them instead of choosing one or the other can also keep your design from becoming too one-dimensional and boring.

3. Welcome masculine and feminine pieces.
There's no rule that says you can't mix masculine and feminine pieces - that oversized, bulky sofa might surprise you when it matches up perfectly with your dainty, contemporary side table. Country Living magazine recommends trying different combinations before you rule out certain pieces of furniture altogether.

4. Use what you like.
Mixing two different interior design styles gives you room to incorporate your own personal taste. Whether you want to bring in a certain painting or a vase to show off your decor interests, it's easy to do so when you're already combining various decor. Keep this in mind as you design your space to make it more fun!
