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.
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.
