You can also place antiques in an inconspicuous area. like on a floating shelf. There they accent the design of the room rather than dominate and potentially clash with it. Placing an antique on a bookshelf can also work. By placing it next to a row of books. it doesn’t stick out as much but still reminds you of an era you may be fond of.
Make use of a rustic or vintage craft projectAnother way to decorate with antiques is to go for a deliberately rustic piece. The photo above shows how a designer creatively combined cowboy photos with a rustic windowsill.You might also find some rustic shelving to house antiques and combine them with distressed furniture. Old heirloom furniture could also receive a distressed paint job.
Like many other current trends. this rule builds on our persistent desire to assimilate the great outdoors with our interior aesthetics.McCauley’s concept works like this: if nature were a framed viewpoint. the darkest colors would be found towards the ground. (Think dark grasses. stones. and mud.) Meanwhile. the medium tones of trees and plant life would be in the middle. Lightly-toned skies would round out the top of the frame.
A popular option is hanging old photos on the wall or placing them on a shelf. Putting them in a modern frame can keep family history alive or celebrate a past era without overwhelming the overall room design.Antiques with a timeless cultural feel to them. like oriental ceramics or Victorian teacups. are best served in a modern-looking curio so that they are on display in an updated way.
