How to obtain the patina-style balance? "As a general rule, add a maximum of around 3-4 old and chippy pieces to a room," Brooke says. "You'll want a mix of old and new. Keep upholstery clean and simple, and balance older pieces with industrial pieces."
This bathroom is a wonderful example of patina style. The vanity is fashioned from a vintage piece, the mirrors are gilded yet chipped, the glass pendant lights add interesting shape and decoration overhead. However, the walls are freshly painted and smooth, the curtain is crisp and light, and the fixtures are clean and new. Metal basins sinks are industrial and more masculine; they balance out the feminine floral light fixtures above.
