The mixture enriches. In gastronomy, in culture, and of course, in decoration. A room will always be more attractive and personal if you combine a special piece that contrasts with the rest and makes the space more interesting. A very flat decoration runs the risk of looking like a showroom, and we always seek that the houses have a life of their own, that they convey emotions.
Neither classic nor modern. In the mix of these two styles lies, many times, the authentic personality of a living room. Do you have a classic lamp and you don’t know how to integrate it into your modern living room (or vice versa)? Look at these proposals and get inspired!
1. A MODERN LIVING ROOM WITH STYLISH PIECES AND A CRYSTAL CHANDELIER
Classical architecture rooms, like this one with high ceilings and moldings, are wonderfully suited to a chandelier or crystal lamp because it visually fills the space and blends in naturally with the environment. And, so that the set is not too classic, nothing better than the decorator Meritxell Ribé has done in this room, opting for a mix of modern pieces, such as the bookcase, and others with a retro flavor, such as the armchair.
2. A MINIMALIST LIVING ROOM WITH A CHANDELIER LAMP
The contrast of styles suits this room wonderfully: its stately base is complemented by contemporary decor with a minimalist air and a spectacular chandelier-type chandelier that frames the space and fits perfectly with the classic essence of this floor.
3. A STATELY LIVING ROOM WITH MODERN DECOR AND A CRYSTAL CHANDELIER
This room shows that decorative contrasts work. And it is that although the architecture of this spectacular room is classic, the decoration has sought to modernize the space with a very modern look: sofas with straight lines, an iron and wood table, the fiber armchair, the Berber carpet … The ceiling lamp, a crystal chandelier design, is the only classic nod.
4. A MODERN AND NATURAL LIVING ROOM WITH A LANTERN TYPE LAMP
This room has opted for a contemporary decoration but with a clear timeless vocation, with sofas with straight lines that have been complemented with pieces of fibers, which give a natural look very much in keeping with space. And, as a contrasting note, the ceiling lamp, an original lantern-like design with a lot of charm.
5. WHEN THE LAMPS ARE THE PROTAGONISTS
In this room that houses a marvelous modernist gallery, two sculptural twin lamps have been chosen with golden meshes that fit perfectly with the stately space. For the decoration, on the other hand, modern pieces have been chosen, such as the coffee tables or the bean bag, and timeless pieces with a vintage flavor, such as the beautiful chaise longue, which creates the most attractive mix of styles.
6. A SPECTACULAR CHANDELIER FOR A TIMELESS LIVING ROOM
The lamp should be the main protagonist of this space. For its beauty, and for its sentimental value, because it belonged to the owner’s grandmother. Its mere presence fills with elegance and stately flavor a living room decorated with contemporary pieces, such as sofas, and other more classic pieces, such as stools.
