Stick with the 80/20 rule. It works beautifully here. If you are just gaining confidence in this mix-and-match game, take some cues from this look. A traditional area rug grounds this otherwise modern living room, giving it an air of history. If you have modern furniture, injecting a bit of history through a traditional element will keep it from looking like a showroom setup. The result will be more individual and personal.Tell us: What do you struggle with including that your partner just can't live without?Part 1: Practical Ways to Merge Tastes

3. Show your history.Look to you family heritage (or storage locker) to find ways to put the person back into your personal decor. Those family legacy pieces might add just the right note to soften the look. Do you have some pieces in storage that could add to the mix?If not, oriental carpets are very popular right now. Go for one with a fringed edge for a greater softening effect. Fringes on rugs are coming back.

Modern Style “Modern” in interior design really refers to “Mid Century Modern”. It is recognizable by it’s clean, unadorned interiors. Use of natural materials such as wood, leather, teak and linen are prominent. Molded plywood and plastic is very popular in modern furniture, as well as polished metal. Furniture is very open and raised off the floor allowing for an airy feeling. Contemporary by definition means “existing, occurring, or living at the same time; belonging to the same time.” And that is exactly the same for the use of the term in interior design. Contemporary design refers to what is popular or used right now. Contemporary design can be very eclectic for that reason, because it is ever changing and borrows pieces and styles from all different eras.
