Find the balance By surrounding a single antique piece with contemporary furniture and art, or by adding a pop of colour, older pieces look right at home. The key is to find the right balance when pairing antiques with modern pieces or when placing them in a modern room. Place smaller contemporary pieces on an antique sideboard; even simply adding beautiful flowers or plants can lighten up a darker, old piece. Sitting on top of a modern rug can also complement older pieces. TIP: Finding balance is not a 50/50 proposition. Try to limit your vintage furniture to one or two larger pieces per space.

3. Personal elementsThis hallway is a brilliant collision of past and present, transforming the space into a haven of style. While rustic timber flooring sets the tone, the antique dresser sits right beside a Mid-century children’s chair. A collection of Italian and Danish ceramics and a retro carved wooden bust adorn the top, all beautifully positioned to catch the eye. Simple and unfussy yet wonderfully elegant, this hallway reveals the owners’ eclectic taste.

“I love looking at this view from my daughter’s room,” says Rebekah. “The retro children’s saucer chair adds colour and gets dragged from room to room when friends visit.” The beloved hall dresser is one furniture piece that won’t be making its way to the couple’s retail shop. A collection of Italian and Danish ceramics, and a retro carved wood bust, adorn the top. Bird prints: Naomi Murrell

I like this room because of the art work and the danish modern style. The blue chair is also cool.
