While these two options are not necessarily mutually exclusive, it does take some know-how to combine them cohesively. Trendy can be too bold, and traditional can be too boring. However, finding a balance of both trendy and traditional means you’ll love the space now, and continue to enjoy it years down the road.
The space afforded by the 11-foot ceilings is put to good use, with a loft converted into an entertainment area. Museum-style track lighting increases the perception that one is in an art gallery. Certain soothing details such as soft features and warm neutral colors create a grounding, casual atmosphere. There‘s also a fun dose of pop art: A handmade “Open“ sign, built from a wine crate and neon wording, hangs from the loft and illuminatesdepictions of both Queen Elizabeth of England and Chairman Mao.
One of the biggest misconceptions about designing a space is the assumption that it must be either timeless or trendy, with no middle ground. In reality, your rooms can contain both elements in a way that is both modern and budget-friendly.
It‘s also important to remember that when it comes to trends, less is more. An entire room that it filled with today‘s stylish items will undoubtedly be tiring to the eye. Choose one or two trendy items that you can use as statement pieces. Then, balance the rest of the room out with neutral pieces.
