Did I buy the wrong lighting fixture?
March 17, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I bought this glass tile and mica ceiling fixture for our family room. I thought it was a traditional/modern combo and liked the way it repeated the copper color and square motifs in the room. My designer friend, however, said that it might be prairie and doesn't go with our furniture. She says I need to choose an overarching theme for our home. I want to begin including contemporary elements but also want to keep items like the green dry sink and coffee table in the photos, both of which my husband made. Can I do a mix of traditional and modern and is this a start or does it not look cohesive? There are many items in our home that have meaning and a history, so how do you work modern in??
