What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jenn Hannotte / Hannotte Interiors added this to Design Lessons From a Stylishly Evolving Home
Emma's traditional Victorian home is versatile in that the two main rooms are virtually interchangeable. Here, she has a living room in the front of the home.Pendant light, rug, chairs, sofa, coffee table, mirror: vintage, Commute Home; artwork: Eliza Griffith
Push the extremes. This great example shows more of an eclectic mix, but the furniture is all very modern, resting on a modern rug in a traditional setting. You can get this look if you apply a few principles. First visualize the fixed pieces — here the chandelier and the mirror over the fireplace — as all being part of the structure, and keep those very traditional. When you choose items such as these, look for elements that are extremely different, as the ones here are, or else the result will be a mishmash of ideas. It is only by pushing the tension that the result will be really interesting.For example, this isn't just a gold-framed traditional mirror, but one resplendent with baroque detail. The chandelier, too, is very dramatic. The chairs are unquestionably modern. You can make this sort of mix successful when you keep in mind that the key is in juxtaposing very modern furniture against a traditional structure. This is a great reason to visit a local flea market and see what treasures you find.

That big over the top mirror mixes things up and I guess the chandelier is adding a traditional note but is it painted black? Wood, plant, modern furnishings, lots of white - doesn't sound like it would be so inviting and warm. The sheepskins on the chairs make them quirky and irresistible "come sit".
